Ability Focus

Ability Focus comes to us from Sky, whom we’ve reviewed before for her work on the Everyday Heroes blog. Ability Focus is another of her works, one dedicated to opening people’s minds to the potential and capabilities of people with mental disabilities, be they the result of mental retardation, brain injury, or mental illness.

Ability Focus – Why You Should Go

Sky writes Ability Focus with care and attention, showing that the key to helping people with disabilities is to work within their capabilities, and not focusing on their abilities. Sky speaks with authority on the subject as one who has worked for nearly 12 years with the population as a direct care provider for the mentally disabled.

In explaining the intent of her blog, Sky says that her goal for the blog is to most specifically be a resource for the people who work with people with disabilities, to offer them a more effective and meaningful experience. She cites her experiences as her resource; “Along the way I have had the privilege of learning how to better relate to folks with and without ‘disabilities’. On this blog I intend to share some tips and tricks of people working in this field to help enhance the quality of life of persons with ‘mental disabilities’.”

While her intent may be more care-focused, there is much for everyone to learn from Sky, as her posts regarding effective communication, appreciation, and management are applicable many times over to life relationships. The blog is also a great way for people to learn more about the population at large, and to gain a higher level of understanding and appreciation of people with mental disabilities.

Summing Up Ability Focus

Sky’s still young blog shows a lot of promise, and proves to be a very good potential resource for people working closely with people with mental disabilities. Sky has many years of experience and appreciation of the gifts working with this population brings, a true wealth of information to draw from for her blog.

Blame It On The Sourdough

El Blog De La Sourdough

How many times have you read a funny email, or something on a website somewhere in cyberspace, and think that it would be great to post for others on your blog? But then practicality takes over and you realize that your well-focused blog may just not be the right place for this. After all, you’ve developed a unique community and it’s important to keep that readership engaged. To be sure that it is, but if only there were a place where these notable posts could live in the blogosphere…

Today, there is. On the Blog De La Sourdough, Steve Fields (a contributor on Sky’s Every Day Heroes blog) allows his ‘friend’ sourdough free access to his site where he can go post-happy with the best and worst of the web.

El Blog De La Sourdough – Why You Should Go

Sourdough has an eclectic and sometimes strange sense of humor, but overall his posts have an intelligent base behind them. They can infuriate and entertain (depending on who is reading them). Sourdough seems to have a refreshingly strong sense of self and belief, and he’s not afraid to show it with the posts that he puts forth! It’s a nice change from the waffling middle ground.

That being said, there’s a good chance that you won’t like what you see on this blog. The beauty of blogging is, though, that we all get to explore that of interest and belief to us and then build a community around it. And either way, there’s only one way for you to know whether this is a guy you’ll love or hate, or love to hate as the cards sometimes fall. You’ll have to go over and see what Steve and his good buddy are up to in the Netherlands of Alaska and decide for yourself.

Heroes Are Among Us, Everyday

Every Day HeroesWhere to Find This EveryDayHeroes:

EveryDayHeroes

This blog’s builder, Sky, describes EveryDayHeroes as her “… celebration of the human spirit.” Believing that there are “Many heroes are among us, including you.”

EveryDayHeroes is the work of Sky and of contributor Steve Fields. Its focus is on finding the heroes of the world in order to celebrate what’s good about the human condition and inspire others to do good things, and to credit themselves with the good they already do.

EveryDayHeroes – Why You Should Go

What makes a hero? Where are the real heroes? Are heroes real?

These are questions that are answered at this blog. Yes indeed there are heroes, but they may not be what you envisioned them to be. Some of the inspirational and insightful quotes included on this site illustrate this. For example,

From Arthur Ashe:

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others, at whatever cost.

From Felix Adler:

The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.

These perspectives serve as the foundation for the stories of real, Every Day Heroes that Sky highlights. If you can agree with that perspective, you will surely find some inspiration here, from stories like the 7 year old boy that brought freshwater wells to Africa to the simple heroes when a disastrous F5 tornado and flooding struck near Sky’s hometown.

Summing Up EveryDayHeroes

Every Day Heroes is a new blog with a lot of promise. It promises to inspire and to motivate, and to help you look within yourself for personal realization and development. Just when you thought there was nothing good to report, a blog like this comes along to remind us that as human beings, we are basically good and willing to help. Somehow it seems blogs like these come along just in time.
