We had teachers convention last week and our closing keynote was a man by the name of Cory Johnson and he spoke about turning disabilities into possibilities. Cory knows this topic well because he has Cerebral Palsy and he also had a stroke when he was 11 years old. He spoke of things that are "disabling" to all of us and how we need to work to overcome them. He talked of disabilities that we all have including worrying, gossiping, procrastination, controlling/manipulating, being angry, lying, not participating, breaking agreements...etc. It made me really think about how procrastination is one of my biggest personal disabilities and that I need to focus on overcoming it. And so my commitment coming out of this convention is to work on that.
Here is a little funny though that Cory showed during his presentation.
