With 1 day to go to the publication of my second book, ‘Spirituality, Healing and Me’ the 2nd January 2020 and the 16th September 2021 will be forever etched in my mind and heart, because both those dates are a turning point to a changed life.
Writing about my life, about my disability and bringing it to life, and for the first time has brought about a different thinking in me. Getting to know me has been a revelation. Mental health is something I have continued to struggle with, as far back as a child, but as a child it was impossible for me to understand how what I thought is how it made me feel.
As a child mental health wasn’t something I understood, but now I understand. In fact, it is only when we look back on our life that we may look at our reactions, what we had to deal with and understand mental health a little more.
I write about mental health on my blog The CP Diary because living with a disability I didn’t know I had and dealing with autism, leaves me susceptible to mental Health issues. But mental health matters, it can affect us all. It is the backbone to our wellness, to just about everything we do in our lives.
When it comes to me helping others, my goal isn’t for me to get someone else to feel, sadly I can’t do that, but if I can get someone else to want to act on that want, then I will have achieved greatly. That goal starts in my first Book Cerebral Palsy: A Story ‘Finding the Calm After the Storm.’
My second book, Spirituality, Healing and Me’ is my spiritual and healing journey, based on universal principles that can help us all, in this journey I call life.
As I take myself by the hand, I also take my readers by the hand, showing them that we can think about and perceive our lives differently, no matter our starting point. Give me a chance to prove to you that my books can change the way you think about and perceive your life.
