Given my life and all that I’ve been through, I’d have a right to be angry, cross and upset at the injustice of it all, but instead of drawing on the negativity, I have chosen a different more spiritual path for myself.
My spiritual beliefs help me find understanding, where I couldn’t see or understand. I believe that is what pulls me through. Spirituality is a road of self-discovery, recognising the deepest of values and the meanings by which we channel and live our lives, so that we aspire to life in its simplest form.
Spirituality is about giving without needing to receive back and having inner peace. I draw inspiration from the smallest of things and look for the lessons I am shown, even if those lessons don’t always make sense. My beliefs continue to help me focus away from my physical form and that takes away my stress.
I have days where my beliefs are put to the test through Cerebral Palsy, but I’m drawn back like a magnet. I don’t understand everything I deal with, but my beliefs allow me to deal with certain aspects of my life more smoothly.
