Seeing the Funny Side of Embracing Individuality (Even with One Eye)

Hey there, fellow humans! It's me, your friendly neighborhood visually impaired blogger, here to share a few laughs (and maybe a few tears) about my journey of embracing my individuality with just one eye. That's right, I'm a professional blur-ologist. And while some folks might see that as a disadvantage, I choose to see it as a superpower.

Now, before I was a full-time unpaid artist creating digital abstract art, I was a dentist. Yes, you read that right but when I became visually disabled, the choice of practicing dentistry was taken away from me. Not by someone but by me as I couldn’t be a one-eyed dentist. (Cue the jokes about pulling teeth with one eye closed.)

But you know what they say, when one door closes, another one opens. And in my case, that door led me straight to the world of art. Now, I'm not going to lie, there have been some challenges along the way. But you know what? I've learned to embrace those moments and laugh them off. Because the beauty of art is that there are no rules. There's no right or wrong way to create, just your own unique perspective. And while some people might see my visual impairment as a limitation, I choose to see it as an asset. After all, it's what makes my art truly one-of-a-kind.

And let's not forget about the perks of being visually impaired. Like being able to wear my glasses as a fashion statement instead of a necessity. Or being able to claim ignorance when someone shows me a picture of a spider. ("Oh, I'm sorry, I can't see that. Can you describe it to me in excruciating detail?")

So, what's my point? Embracing individuality isn't always easy, but it's worth it. Because when you stop trying to fit into someone else's mold and start celebrating what makes you unique, that's when the real magic happens. And hey, if all else fails, you can always make a joke about it. Laughter is the best medicine, after all.

So, here's to all the one-eyed dentists-turned-artists out there. Keep creating, keep laughing, and keep being your gloriously individual selves.
