A different slant on my life

My experiences, my feelings on how I got to this place will never leave me. I am not wittingly choosing to carry those, or spite those who have done to this to me, but ignoring a child who has a disability and special needs, isn’t something you just get over, it’s something that child learns to live with.

As the adult, I choose not to be defined by cerebral palsy and autism, it is doable; but others will still be responsible. Their lives will always be intertwined with mine. However hard they try to ignore what’s been done, the universe will let them know they’re not done.

With my father having told me his reasoning, there is no doubt spirit was protecting him, because my disability was mild enough for it to be ignored, but they were also pleading with me, telling me to be patient, that the tide would turn, that I needed to wait, that I would go on to bigger and better things, that I wasn’t to give up and that I would come through the better person.

Me being at a disadvantage as a child was spirits way of saying your life will be corrected, it will come good. I couldn’t see then what I know now. Yes, it has taken me 56 years to come to know and understand my disability, but there is still a positive side to it. I could never have grown emotionally or mentally through the process had the normal course of events happened.

I could also never have foreseen then, how my father not being able to cope with a child with a disability and special needs, was going to shape my own future with my successful website and soon to be book, but I needed to wait and trust in the ‘higher force’ that my life would come good.

I could never have foreseen that the universe needed me to go through my experiences. That this was part of the universe’s bigger plan for me.

  1. Yes, you have come through a better person, as your father stated. So much so that you’re an inspiration to us all.

    I’m so glad the universe introduced me to you.

    1. That’s so kind, thanks Tim. Yes, I am too. We think the same way, my thoughts are often your thoughts. It is why we were brought together. I also think our experiences, although different, are similar. We have both struggled.

      I am pleased that my experiences and my blog has helped you too. I don’t see myself or think myself as inspirational, but thank you. I am just me.

  2. It takes a lot to look at things differently, but you are a power of example that it can be done. I definitely want to get a copy of your book.

    I have been having a very difficult time trying to come to terms with looking at things differently, but I know that it’s what I need to do, to be able to move on with my life.

    I’m not sure there was anything my parents could have done to make up for what they put us through, so I definitely understand your feelings.

    It’s hard to imagine the universe had any good reasons for what I went through, but I survived so I guess the point would be to share the message with others how it was that I did.

    1. Thanks Randy. You’re so kind. I am looking forward to sharing my book with you. Yes, there is always a lesson and reason attached to every experience we go through.

      We must be comfortable and put our trust in the universe and learn to live more without worrying about things. The irony is that the less we worry about things, the more we will work things out and the more things will work out.

      The universe knows us more than we know ourselves, sometimes. It knows our struggles, before we’ve even understood our struggles.
