Let’s start with some real talk: 2018 was tough, y’all.  During the last few months I was wearing myself thin – trying to finish up my schoolwork for my degree, feeling the weight of my sister’s absence around our birthdays and the holidays, and struggling with some changes to my vision.  Around mid-November, I knew I was going to be dragging myself across the finish line into 2019

So here we are, 2019! While I’m not completely free from the entanglements of last year, I did check off #73 from my Bucket List, providing me two things I desperately needed last year: more time and opened doors.   While thinking about what I ultimately wanted out of 2019, I kept being pulled in the same direction.  One going towards a word that wasn’t only motivational, but that also holds me accountable and proactive in my approach to the year.

In discussions about understanding vision loss, you’ll commonly hear phrases like visually impaired, low vision, or legally blind. I make reference to each of these terms a lot in my posts and social media. I even have it in my Instagram bio. But what do they actually mean, and and how is it determined what category those with vision loss may fall under?
