Given my life and all that I’ve been through in my formative years, I would probably have a right to be angry, cross, frustrated and sad at the injustice of not knowing I had Cerebral Palsy, but in order not to draw on all the negativity, I have chosen a different path to go down.
I also believe that my spiritual beliefs help me find a form of acceptance. I think it is that which pulls me through time and again. Spirituality is a road of self-discovery, recognising the deepest of values and the meanings by which people live their lives, so that they aspire to the simplest forms of life without encompassing the material wealth the world thrives on.
Giving without the need to receive back, but most of all having inner peace. I draw inspiration from the smallest of things and look for the lessons I know I am being taught, even if they don’t always make sense. Of course, I do have stress dealing with Cerebral Palsy, there would be something wrong with me if I didn’t, but my beliefs help me focus, so that I can move forward with things.
I do have days where those beliefs are tested, but I pull back every time like a magnet. I don’t understand everything there is to know about spirituality, but on the whole, I feel all of what I believe adds to my calmness of dealing with my life and Cerebral Palsy and being kept in the dark.
