Being protected

1 Jul 2015

When we finally find out we have something, but have never known I believe we are protected because we don’t know. We don’t worry about it or think about it. Life carries on. Ignorance is bliss as they say.

It’s only when we come to understand what it is we have been dealing with for all of those years that we are no longer protected and that’s the scary part. Our new understanding on anything we have to …

My fair share of struggles

30 Jun 2015

It’s fair to say that I have had and still continue to have my fair share of struggles.

I get to that point where things tick over nicely, but then everything is wrong, nothing is right, my Cerebral Palsy troubles me, how I got to this point bothers me and when I look at snippets of everyone’s part played out in my life, there is so much I want and would like to change and so my struggles goes on.  This time of year also reinforce some of my Cerebral Palsy issues.

So how do I work through my struggles? I stand back so that I can rationale …

Other people’s ignorance

29 Jun 2015

There are those who genuinely want to help; those who want to help but don’t know how to help and those who don’t want to know what we have to deal with and therefore don’t go out of their way to help.

I’m sure we will know someone who fits into the latter description. I believe it’s the not knowing; living in the dark with little to no understanding of our lives that makes what we feel and what we think …

Our lessons

28 Jun 2015

If we’re lucky enough to have supporting parents, we will learn many lessons from them, but if like me you didn’t, sometimes the main lesson we learn, is how not to do things.

My fate was sealed the moment I was born, but it would go on to take me many years to understand why. I was a fairly optimistic child. In my mind I was always optimistic, optimistic but rather naïve …

Making a choice

26 Jun 2015

Although I was emotionally stuck as a child, I made a conscious effort to make sure I wasn’t also set in my ways because I was emotionally stuck.

I’ve heard it said that the older we are the more likely we are to be and remain set in our ways, but I believe we get to call the shots. We get to make our choice. I believe that when we see the decisions …

Looking back at life

25 Jun 2015

It’s only when children become independent and begin to live their own lives, that we look back on our own life and either look back at those memories fondly or come to realise how bad our life has really been, to that point. I have never chosen to live my life through anyone …

Negative to positive

24 Jun 2015

We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life or you can focus on what’s right. – Marianne Williamson

I love the above quote because it points out exactly how we can choose to see and live our lives, instead of other people’s reality being our own. Negative to positive, we can change our perceptions …

About accomplishments

23 Jun 2015

Something inspirational:

“At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about what you’ve done with those accomplishments. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It about what you’ve given back.”

Digestion & immunity

22 Jun 2015

It’s hard to believe that we’re made of 90% bacteria. For every cell in your body, we have 9 cells of bacteria living in and on our body.

Most of the bacteria is living inside our intestinal tract and the health of this organism is critical to the overall health of our bodies. The health of our gut bacteria and the health of our immune …
