Don’t Listen To Others

That Tell You What You Can and Cannot Do

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ’—

AHHHHHHHH!!!!!

People drive me crazy…

Why on earth do some people feel they have the right to tell you what you can and cannot do????

It seriously pushes my buttons big-time!!! 😫😠😑..

Everyone I know knows about the van living life I’m about to embark on, they all know I’m a tree hugging, dirt loving nature freak and they all know I’m disabled too πŸ€”

Yet why on earth would anyone try to tell anyone that because of a disability or weight issue that they shouldn’t or can’t do something they love… like hiking??? 😠..

Yes I’m disabled… Yes I have rods that hold up my big old head because I have no vertebrae in my neck, yes I have limited mobility in my neck and spine because of having to have 12 spine surgeries… Yes I have MS and although I don’t have a weight issue, I’ve been sitting on my ass since my son passed away and I am way out of shape…

But what’s that got to do with what I want to do and enjoy doing?

NOTHING!!!!!

It drives me insane when people ASSUME that just because someone may have a disability, may have a weight issue or are out of shape that they can’t do certain things…

There’s no size limit to hiking and there’s no signs that say if you’re disabled you cannot hike this trail…

WTF PEOPLE!!! 😠..

So I decided that after receiving my stickers from a couple accounts that I follow on IG @unlikelyhikers & @mtnchicks (that I will proudly put on my van πŸ˜‰)…I was gonna do a shout out to all the people out here that think or have been told that they can’t do things they want to do because others think they can’t or because they are disabled or are not in tip top shape..

DO IT ANYWAY!!!

If it’s something you love doing, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t..

Sooooo don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do… Go out and do whatever it is that you truly want to do!!!πŸ’—πŸ˜‰πŸ’—…

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible for I have and am prevailing each and every day. You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀ https://www.gofundme.com/riccis-healing-journey

  1. “Does this mountain I just climbed make me look fat?” I love that one!
    Many were taught from early childhood that there are things we can’t do. When we hear, “Oh, you can’t do that because you’re __________” it’s rarely intended as cruelty: it’s a sharing of a belief that’s intended for our safety.
    Some prefer to take risks and find out what they can do. They may discover that they really can’t do certain things, or they may discover a different way to do them.
    Some prefer to safety at all costs, and discover a contentment they could not have without that safety.
    It’s difficult for many to accept that others don’t want their kind of happiness. Riskers may be frustrated by safers who refuse to take risks. Safers may be frustrated by riskers who refuse to stay safe. It’s people being people: all in favour of differences as long as we don’t see them as threats.
    One destructive characteristic of our present society is that we depend too heavily on schooling (our own and that of others) and lack respect for the knowledge and wisdom of experience. Limited experience (such as observing patients in a hospital and not observing healthy people in other locations) can distort our view of reality.
    And I need my lunch now.

    1. Hahahaha laughing at how you ended the comment and I do agree..I guess I was raised different because I was always taught to follow my dreams and I could do or be anything. Yet I don’t agree with the ones (either riskers or safers) that tell someone they can’t or shouldn’t period… I believe we should support people in whatever it is they want to do or try (unless it’s murder and stuff like that..) not deflate what they want to do.. because even if it doesn’t work for the person trying at least they tried… it’s not ok for anyone to deflate what someone wants to do just because they wouldn’t do it out don’t agree with it… Now I need to eat hahahaha

      1. Just trying is a major accomplishment for some of us. Also, it’s a heck of a lot more fun than dying of boredom. A quote from someplace — probably a novel that I read out of boredom: “I may be fuel for the hellfire, but I will burn hot while I burn!”
