Video: Ten Positives of Blindness

I’ve been reading my heart sister’s [Safe Space]( blog, and it’s beauty and success has made me want to take a good, hard look at this one.

I know I’ve not written much to all of you reading my blog of late, and even before I was forced into an unexpected video hiatus, it was difficult to do both. I would like to begin again, though I would like to post to my blog only the important things in words. The things people want to see. So please forgive me, my Treasures, if you see my blog undergoing some purging and tweaking in the days to come. Much of it might not be noticeable from off site, but just in case.

For now, I hope you enjoy my latest video where I speak about the ten positives of blindness.

While blindness does present its challenges, it isn’t all leaping hurtles and facing hardships. Sometimes, it can be downright beautiful, not to mention convenient.

  1. Hi Sirena: You truly are a beautiful treasure! You have such a beautiful & positive outlook on life and you have inspired me so much. I’m a occupational therapist and just getting my blog account set up, but I haven’t started blogging yet. I’m designing a line of ladies clothing for ladies who are blind or have visual impairments. Keep up the good work and God bless you!

    • I can’t even begin to put words to how touching this comment is to me. It means so much, because this is why I do this. If I can touch even one person, then I’ve been successful. I am so touched I could inspire you. Thank you so much for enjoying my content. I can’t wait to read your blog and learn more about the clothing you design! That sounds fantastic. If you’re not subscribed to my YouTube channel yet, might you be willing to join me there? I may be overhauling my blog a bit so it doesn’t seem so cluttered, and I’m not sure if I’m going to keep posting the video posts here or if I’m going to place them on their own page. I don’t like the idea that I might be cluttering inboxes of people who may not appreciate a post containing only a video.

      Again, thank you so much for commenting. Feedback truly means the world to me.


      • You truly are inspiring and I look forward to more of your blogs. I’m new to blogging and feel like such an amateur. I was so excited about getting my blog set up and finally got my static page completed and ready to start blogging about all my experience working with people with low vision. I decided to start reading some blogs from real people who struggle with low vision. After reading a few blogs and hearing videos such as yours, I realize it is you guys that are the real experts on the subject. I’m trying to build a platform to get my name and new company out there, so when my line of clothing comes off the assembly line I will have an audience to sell my products to. When it comes to youtube I hardly get on there although I did set up an account and put my first introductory video on there and I have had 3 views the last time I checked and they were all mine. I’m struggling with my social media, but I’m hoping the blog will change all of that. I have my new website set up if you would like to check it out and give me some feedback on the accessibility part. It is Thank you for watching for my future blogs. I planned to get my first one out this week, but I think I’m going to rethink my approach.

        • Again, thank you so much for your sweet words! It can be difficult, setting everything up. If you set up an Instagram business account, it’s free, you can set it up to post your photos and their corresponding messages to both Facebook and Twitter at the same time they post to Instagram. That might make it a bit easier for you by knocking off a few steps so that you’re not forced to update three different social media platforms every time you want to say something. It’s still a good idea to monitor all of them, and you may wish to post something to one that may not fit with another, but all in all, it does make life a lot easier.

          I’m going to subscribe to you everywhere and once I get to my computer, I’d be happy to take a look at your website and give you some feedback!

          When you’re set up, or when you’re ready to begin designing, perhaps we can work together. I’m uncertain how much you’d charge for custom designed clothing so I’d have to see what I can do there, but I could try purchasing either an outfit from you or a few custom pieces based on what you do and I can rock them in a YouTube video and babble all about them. Who designed them, where I got them, ETC. I don’t have a following like some of the world famous blind YouTubers out there, but it’s still about 70 extra people who might see them. And who knows! Maybe by that time I’ll have a few more!

          I want to help in any way I can, and making connections like this one, both in ways of friendship and yes, a working sense, is half the fun of putting yourself out there. There’s so much to see, learn, and so many people to meet, learn from and support. I know I appreciate all the support you give me. Comments mean the world to me. If I can support you, just let me know how and I’ll work with you and see if we can make it happen.
