Reflecting at Christmas

It’s that time of year again, a time for me to reflect. I am again deep in thought and I turn to my autism diagnosis, which I found out about in January, although it seems a lot longer and my accomplishments this year with the book. The book has catapulted me into a different thinking and I’m okay with it, because it needed to happen.

Although I’ve been working on the book for three and a half years, I started putting it together in May of this year. It is an open and honest account of my experiences and life. It explains my journey through my experiences and brings understanding into the equation for the first time.

Although my website touches on my personal experiences, my blogs don’t touch on my ‘life story’ in the way the book does. The book has allowed me to draw on my thoughts, around a disability I didn’t know I had.

Realistically, I could never understand my life in any great detail without writing the book. It wasn’t a choice I was given. I needed to know about my disability.

  1. You’ve certainly had quite a year but one which has enabled greater understanding of your journey.

    I am looking forward to hearing all about your continued inspirational success with the book’s publication next year.

    1. Yes, thanks. I could never have imagined my life this year, but through my autism diagnosis and now a book that is self-contained, I have more of an understanding of my life.

      Can you imagine growing up knowing you’re different for all the wrong reasons, but not knowing why and this becomes your life for 46 years.

      If like me you believe things happen for a reason, both my autism diagnosis and the book are the reasons why the universe paved the way to allow this to happen.

      It is now 56 years in the making. It’s a long-time in coming, but that’s okay. I believe the universe understood my plight many years ago, and was aware it would happen. But as ever it is about spirit timing.

      I had to watch and wait for my circumstances to change. Through my mum’s terminal illness, her telling me my birth was difficult met with that change.

  2. You’ve come a long way! Now you can breathe easy while you shed anxiety and perhaps uncertainty from your spirit. I can’t wait to read your wonderful book.

    So this Christmas, I’ll be thinking of you and all you have done for the CP Dairy family. I sincerely thank you!

    1. Thanks Tim. I have you to thank. Without your responses I couldn’t continue to do what I do.

      I know the book thing is massive but it doesn’t feel massive, so perhaps that’s a good thing. I can’t wait for you to read the book Tim.

      Have a lovely Christmas and Happy Holidays!
