What is your gift? (dyslexia)

I am dyslexic… so I was told.
That means I see words and letters upside down and out of place. It’s normal… to me. I still read and write daily but am sometimes reliant on proofreaders (my book had four).

I started to notice (through the eyes of others), that this “dyslexia” has given me a unique view of the world. I see and collect information in an “odd” way.  I have come to realize this is a gift.

What is your gift?
Was it sold to you as a disadvantage?

The cool thing about these odd gifts we all have is that they are not available to everyone. You cannot learn to see like a dyslexic.
Just ask Leonardo da Vinci, Tommy Hilfiger, Andy Warhol, Muhammad Ali, Richard Branson, Charles Schwab, Steven Spielberg, John Lennon, Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison.

    Ah, now the repetitive misspelling of “Thai” as “Thia” in the post above (White Sugar Devils) makes sense.

    Ah. This explains the repetitive misspelling of Thai as “Thia” in the post above (White Sugar Devils).
