My Book is based on my story. It has taken courage for me to write about my disability and my experiences in my book: Cerebral Palsy ‘A Story’ Finding the Calm after the Storm. It wasn’t an easy book to write.
I could have gone along with what my family wanted, not look into, or write about or learn about my disability, or my symptoms, but that would have continued to keep me in the dark. I cared too much, but I needed to care less.
For the first time and with a diagnosis at the age of 46, I needed to work out what my symptoms were and my blog was very much the starting point. I owed it to myself to understand me, learn about my disability, learn about my symptoms, what they meant and how those symptoms played a role in my mental and emotional struggles, growing up.
The truth is the truth however we ignore it, I chose not to water it down, or hide behind it. The book is my truth, my experiences and my life. We’re human, we’re all truth seekers, it is our right to have and to hear the truth. It took courage for me to face my family’s truth.
When it comes to the truth, others may still choose to believe what supports their agenda, but the universe will always knows the truth that lies beneath the surface of other people’s awareness. The truth wins in the end. There is no escaping karma. My words are based on truth. I write about the higher order in the universe that continually looks for and works on truth.
As a small child, growing up not knowing about my disability, I continued to believe I would find out the truth, and that my time would come. I put my trust in hope, I stayed close to my thoughts and never gave in, or up.
Yes, as my story shows, what we deal with is very much about us. If the shoe were on the other foot, others would make the same judgment call.
