Everything I write in my Diary, on the site, pays homage to my emotional and physical wellbeing in one way or another.
There are many aspects to our emotional wellbeing that are linked and will carry a different thought process. I love to write about things that mean something to us. Like the values placed upon us as individuals and how those values play out in our lives.
When I was a little girl, I lived in a modest house, my parents weren’t rich and as far as I knew they weren’t poor either, but I always had it instilled in me that to buy something I had to earn it first. I never asked for anything, probably because I knew better, but that wasn’t a bad thing because it taught me about values and rather than value materialistic things that would make me happy for an hour, it meant I had to find my happiness elsewhere.
I never understood fully what my parent’s individual values were. I’m not sure you do as a child, or not wittingly. I knew to my mum family was important, but that she didn’t know how to nurture them. People, particularly family need to be nurtured; through a mutual understanding and respect without infringing on each other’s privacy and although we want that to happen, we may not always get it right.
I did take my own values very seriously and given the fact that I was dealing with Cerebral Palsy, I saw the world from a completely different angle. From an early age, I began to hone in on the importance of people and reaching out in the hope that I would have support with what I had to deal with.
I always aimed to please, always aiming for acceptance. Unfortunately for me, my physical and emotional problems were constantly being overlooked. I have held on to the same values for years and still do. Each of my blogs carries a value, a message. The old-fashioned values of caring and making a difference is what I care about and is always something I will continue to do.
Looking after and making sure my own family grow with confidence and are happy and content is also important to me, that they make a difference in their lives, however they choose to make that difference.
