My struggles today

I’m not exactly sure why I’m struggling with the enormity of my experiences now, but perhaps it’s got something to do with my book being published in two weeks time.

I am irritated by the fact that my experiences were allowed to happen and that’s what I’m struggling to get past today. I know that without my life I could never have written the book, but those factors seem worlds apart. As the publishing date fast approaches I am grateful to have the opportunity to tell my story, in a non-judgmental or aggressive way.

I mustn’t forget my website because that is the catalyst and the start of my Cerebral Palsy journey. I couldn’t have forged ahead to write about my life, or my experiences, without my website. I am grateful for that.

My book, part memoir, part motivational guide, Cerebral Palsy: A Story is my open and honest journey from an angry, confused child, knowing something was wrong, but not knowing what, to the ‘real’ me – using my experiences and lessons to create inspiring messages about mental and physical health, positivity, resilience and change.

My book is due out on 2nd January, 2020 and can be pre-ordered by clicking the link or the image of the book cover above.

I am grateful for the opportunity and to my publishers RedDoor Press for believing in my story, and for giving me this opportunity to publish my memoirs/self-help/mind/body/spirit for others to also benefit.

  1. Boy, I can definitely relate to those feelings especially around this time of year, when there are so many bad memories for me, while everyone else seems to be getting so excited over Christmas.

    People are expecting me to get into the holiday, when all I want is for it to be over. It is very difficult not to get irritated when you think of what our parents allowed to happen, considering how different things could have been, if they had dealt with the issues we had from the beginning.

    I’m guessing that you’re having mixed emotions of dread and excitement with your book coming out, seeing as it exposes everything to the world that you have had to hide for most of your life.

    I for one do have to say that I am very proud of you and grateful for the power of example you have been to me, and in contemplating writing my own book. Keep up the great work.

    1. Thanks Randy – ‘I am very proud of you and grateful for the power of example you have been to me’ that’s so kind, thank you.

      I am pleased that you see you are seeing your life differently now. That none of what happened is on you. You and I cannot change our experiences, or that of our past, but we can change ‘us.’

      Your outlook has definitely changed and you have changed. You have come a long way from where you were.

      Be proud of yourself, you have a lot to be proud of. I am proud of you also.
