Given my life’s experiences and everything I’ve had to endure, I’d have a right to be angry and upset at the injustice of it all, but instead of drawing on all 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. That is what pulls me through. Spirituality is a road of self-discovery, recognising the deepest of values and the meanings we channel and by which we live our lives, so that we aspire to life in its simplest form, without complications or negativity.
Spirituality is about giving without needing to receive 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 to me. 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 and some of my experiences, but I’m drawn back like a magnet. I don’t understand everything I deal with just yet, but my beliefs allow me to deal with and come to understand my experiences, so that my life runs more smoothly.
