By being left handed, you have automatic membership into a special group of people. That group is only 7 to 10% of the population, and yet we are not a silent group, as many famous people in our history, past and present, are left handed.
It is said that we “think differently" that we “look at things in a different way", which obviously helped many left handed people to succeed in a right handed world.
Here is just a tiny list of some left handed people, that you should recognize:
Leonardo da Vinci
Just to name a few. . All very creative and successful. It has been said that as a left handed person, we are “right brained", which would support the fact that we think a little differently than right handed people. There are businesses out there that like to have a point of view from both right and left handed employees for a “different approach" to a problem.
But, because we are a minority, we have to be able to live life in a right handed world, which means we have to get creative with scissors, pens, knives, tools. . and even can openers can be a pain. If you are an older leftie, than you know how hard it was in school. I had a teacher that tried to change me, and I ended up stuttering, as this was not natural. But since then I have found my love in art, painting, drawing and more as a true left hander.
I have found many great left handed products and tools out there now, that make my life easier so that I can get on with what I do best. . arts and crafts.
