The 9 qualities you need for coping with losing sight by Maribel Steel

1. Attitude is the key to accepting change in your life.

cultivate a positive attitude & be aware of the choices you are making

2. All your senses: hearing, touching, smelling are so important

It’s never too late to come to your other senses

3. Intuition is the inner vision within: you can trust intuition to make good decisions. Listen to your intuition and trust the guidance of the voice within

4. Courage to commit, courage to fail.

means we have to dare to persist when things ‘go wrong’ and to insist to find a solution.

5. Tenacity: helps you not to give up.

It is being resourceful, creative, solving problems

6. Humour (my favourite)

enroll humour to help you see the funny side, it is a gift we give to ourselves and to others.

7. Patience (Alvaro’s favourite!)

helps to deal with frustration, rest, take a break, gather strength.

8. Independent mobility

take small steps to retain your independence, do you need a guide dog or white cane, do you need to train in computer technology…

9. Support team

become the CEO of your life and gather a team of friends and family who want to know how best to help you. Asking is not a weakness, allows others to use their talents with yours to achieve your goals.

Remember, each one of us is blessed with natural talents, which ones are you willing to share with the world……. please leave your comments and let us know!
