I'm a lefty and proud of it!

Today is National Left-Handers Day where we lefties celebrate our uniqueness all while living in a right-handed world.

Growing up, I lived in a family of lefties. My mother is a lefty along with myself, my sister and my bother. So living in my house, it was totally normal to be a lefty. I can't say the same when I would go to school. Kids always told me I write weird, which I guess is true. That's probably because those stupid metal rings would get in the way while I was trying to write because notebooks are made for right-handed people.

I never owned my own baseball glove growing up so when I would go to a friend's house and they wanted to play baseball, I couldn't use a glove because no one ever had a freaking glove for a lefty.

I do pretty much everything left-handed. The only thing that I'm not sure about is golf because I've only tried to golf once in my life and that was a couple of decades ago, so I have can't really remember.

The one thing I did learn how to do right haded is play guitar (even though I really can't play at all). I always thought it would be a pain trying to get a guitar that would allow me to play left-handed so I simply learned how to do it righty style.

There are a lot of famous guitar players that didn't fight what they were born with and learned to play left-handed including Tony Iommi, Jimi Hendrix, and Kurt Cobain just to name a few.

It's pretty crazy to think that left-handedness was once thought to be evil or a sign of weakness. They would actually force kids to use their right hand instead of their left, so dumb.

Lefties, today is our day to shine, cheers!
