The Queen’s speech on Christmas Day was about how we reflect on our lives and reflection has brought me to this place.
I am where I am because of consequences of the decisions made for me, rather than by me. I’ve been swept along and was expected to conform completely. It’s a bizarre concept to think that I have only ever made four decisions in my life.
The first was when to go back to study, the second was what to study, the third was to find out what was wrong with me after 46 years and the fourth was to do something positive when I found out I had Cerebral Palsy, so I started my Diary. All these decisions have been life changing.
None of us can turn back the clock, nor can we re-write history on our childhood, with our parents and or siblings, but we must find a place where we can come to terms with everything that happens. It was expected I would conform until my circumstances changed and I was left with no choice.
