We all want to be loved the way we are,even the things we would like to change about ourselves. But if we hide the things we don’t like about ourselves. What if we didn’t hide the things we don’t like about ourselves,, would you be able to do it? Love is meant to be true, love the other person whole heartly but I don’t think that happens much nowadays. We feel as if we can’t be different because no one will love us with our difference. So what! Just be you!
How was everyone’s Holliday? Mine was amazing I was with my family in Holland! I just got home last night, so I am getting back to things here and I have to try to get over the time difference (jed lag) it can be hard to get back on track and knowing where I am. But my time with my brother was amazing, we got to see a lot of Holland and I enjoyed the time! It was raining for the most part, but we still got around: one experience we had that we all thought was a little surprising: we took the train to the big town for a day and my brother and dad had to left my chair on the train, on the way home we saw that they had a ramp out for someone else to use, so we thought I would be able to use it but no we had to call a head to use it, we were all surprised that they couldn’t let me use it for a couple minutes then we guessed that it was because of other people who didn’t need it, were using it. So they had to do something to make it harder for anyone to use it, which is fine but it makes it harder for those who really needs it. My brother lives in a small town so we could go for long walks which I loved!
I am going to Holland tomorrow for two weeks I’m over the moon about seeing my brother and family! I am getting family for the holidays what could be better! As I am getting older I am happy to get loved ones as a gift! I think we get older we realize that people are far more important than anything you could buy, family and friends are everything to me!! Yes I do want to get things but I love my family and friends more than anything in the world! My family is all over the world and, which can make Christmas hard for me, I have friends who are like family to me!
Happy holidays to all you! I will be back writing in January!
My services are: contact thought email,a month worth of emails back and forth for $20. I sometimes need more time to write back.. I hope to have a network of support for anyone who is different from the so called normal people think you should be to fit in. We are all different, all needed! So what if you are disabled or you have depression, a mental health problem you amazing loved! The difference you have is what makes you needed! I am a mentor who knows what it’s like to feel lonely just because I am different. I understand it’s hard to have explain why you don’t act normal, what disability you have half the time you meet someone new. I will talk to you and try to understand you and than come up with something to help you deal with your differences!
Most people think of being rich is having a lot of money, it’s so not! It is Love and it is giving more than you get! I have a disability I can’t have a normal job but I’m able to help people and I know I have Love, so I am rich!!! I can do something meaningful with what I have! Baby sitting to helping friends who needed someone to listen and help them when on one else would,,, my life is rich with love!
Life can change in a second, take everything it comes but still dream for more!! Never stop. You may be in a place where you think you can not get out of: but with the right support and love you can overcome anything!
These days I am whing I had more tiwouldme to get everything done and have lots of time to read! But I’m not making great Schedule choices, really reading is taking over my time! I am trying to take an online class, while I’m using my tablet my computer keyboard is a special kind while I can’t get a new one but it is the only kind I’m able to use. what now? You might be asking,,. Since I write to keep busy and I am working on starting my business: I need twouldo be able to write, it’s important to me. I would love to have a normal job but I can’t do it. So I am trying to start my own business, where I can be able to help others! It has been my dream to be a mentor, because of my disability my speech is something you would have to get used to it.. So I have come up with this idea that I can mentor through writing. All that to say I can use my phone and my tablet through my joystick on my wheelchair, it is amazing. Now I just have to get used to my new setup! I am excited but it’s going to take me time!
Thinking about the differences we have: nomatter if you are able or not, we still have needs that are different from everyone else! I think that is what makes us special as well as you are needed! You are here for a reason!! As I wrote yesterday my CP is a little different than most others and I know it is what makes me me! You can walk and talk so you don’t need the kind of help as someone who has a disability. But I’m sure you can have some needs that makes you special! That is what makes the world so beautiful!! Having that special need is awesome! I would like to see more people see that is amazing! We are different in all we need, so why do we think we need to hide what makes us special?
I have my tablet back, so I want to see if I can write better and faster with it. Trying something new can take time, especially if you have a different kind of disability which mine is uncommon! Sometimes I like but I don’t; because new things for the disabilited people, isn’t always easy for me to use.. I have had this tablet just about all year, I have not used it much because some of the things I need to use it with was not working in the way I needed it to, but I am trying it again! I think I like it!
“There will always be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life or you’re the one that will change theirs.” — Angel Flonis Harefa’’ I believe this quote it true, each person we meat there is a reason maybe we need them or they need us! We may not ever know the reason but everyone we do there’s a reason. A friendship or any relationship is a gift that could make our lives better.
“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful. Thich Nhat Hanh” Someone, somewhere needs to hear this! Our lives are full but of the things that bring us down and we start to think if we can make a difference or even worst loved. May be you are going through something that you are not ready to talk about it, you are feeling alone like no one will understand your feelings. That makes you want to hid behind the smile like everything is ok, but really just be the you everyone loves because really you are loved, and your smile is needed! That is not said enough!
What is the best thing you can give someone? When it really matters; if you know they are going through the hardest time and wandering if it could get better. Giving them your time they could make all the difference.
I read this and loved it! I know how just knowing you are loved can help in ways you can only Imagine. “deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu”. Knowing that you have somebody any time of day just makes everything easier.
‘’Acceptance is the road to all change. If resisting has failed and frustrated you, try to accept what is. As hard as it is to believe, acceptance can open different opportunities for change than resistance. Struggling can sometimes swallow us even deeper into the quicksand of our problems. Difficult problems take time to resolve. The more frantically you pick at knots, the more entangled they can become. To untangle yourself try relaxing. Gently and patiently work with your difficulties and in time you will be freed from what now seems impossible. You are being called to heal yourself, not to agonize over your mistakes. Quit overthinking; this is what surrendering really means. Don’t focus on your problems and don’t obsess about “fixing” things. Avoid forcing “positive thinking.” These thoughts can be psychological irritants. Just leave yourself alone! When you pick at things, they never heal. Simply relax and give yourself some time.— Bryant McGill’’ Change is necessary but it can also be hard. How do you cope with changes in your life? Or what helps you? We sometimes think that asking for help, someone to be with you; many make others think you weak but really we all need help sometimes! Love is the most important thing we can give someone!
March is cp awareness month, my idea is instead of an awareness month that promotes treatment and cures why don’t we have a cp pride month that encourages people who have to be proud of cp to be proud of who they are and cerebrates are uniqueness.
February is my favorite mouth because it’s all about love which is my word. The best feeling, the most important thing that we can give and get! And maybe even hard to give sometimes but so wroth it! It’s the one reason I do this; helping others. I have had a few hard things had this week and I kind of took it all harder than I normally would have, it just means for a little while I have to do things differently. At first I was not happy or acting like I would; I wanted it fixed right then, just as if I couldn’t life without that one thing but now as I look at the way I acted I feel so selfish! I have otter ways in which I can talk to others, I didn’t need to act that way; mostly it was because I didn’t think it send love though text to people who I always am there for. I wasn’t thinking about the other things that can help me do that! Yes it makes my life easier but really I can do without for a few days there are more important things I cannot live without like giving love to others.
When you can’t help someone you love with all your heart is can be the hardcore things. But you know just loving them is what they need more than anything else. Its still makes you want to do more but really love fixes everything.
Think about what you can do daily to keep yourself happy? Its music! I have to have music on whatever I do. Its first thing to get my day going, there some things that we do daily that makes life easier for me its music! I love hearing a song that remains me of someone or may me want to dance around like crazy because no one is watching! What is your one thing that gets you happy? Do you write in a journal that also can help some.
Each day do you wake up joyfully? It’s not always easy but I like to think I do. I know I don’t; but being happy is not about having everything you want I think. I think happiness comes from love! Knowing that you have people in your life that do not care when you call them or how you look, act or anything else about you. They love and care for you; that is what I think happiness is. It is not everything else that we think of when want to be happy, it’s looking inside yourself and knowing that you are loved for you! What brings you joy? What could you do if you don’t see joy daily? Because joy is everywhere you just have to see it in the little things and know how you are loved!
What makes you happy? Do you have a dream that you don’t think can come true? I can tell you stop putting yourself down! Its hard not to; because others judge you not on what you can do but your differences. Learning to be ok with yourself sometimes, but it is the best way to make yourself happy.
Over 16million people in the US have depression, which that number could be more; because there are many people who don’t want to say they have depression. Why? I wonder why could someone not tell anybody; oh yeah I know because people judge and think that you are making up illness, just to get love! What the hell! I’m still learning about depression, because I know how it seen. Hid it not going to help the person who deals with it, no it’s the other way I think, having someone who can listen and maybe give their ideas that could make a difference in their life or even just to a friend. That is my goal for this business is to be a support when you need to be heard a mentor. If you are interested you can email me or if you are on facebook me.
I am so excited today I got my business signed up with the state of Colorado it’s a small step to my dream! I am not ready for business just yet but I will be soon! I want to tell you all; if you have felt different or like an outcast don’t let them tell you, you cannot do something. You are you for a reason; you’re beautiful/needed to make a difference in some way!
The best time of the year; thanksgiving and Christmas the time to be with loved ones and give! But not just things but also love and to give back. It’s the best time right? For most yes, but for me it’s just a little harder not because I don’t like Christmas. My family is so far away I don’t get to spend time with them and feel too. But as I start getting ready for the holidays its not that bad. I am actually excited for the New Year and making new goals for myself! As we all try to keep to the goals but somehow things get in the way or we think we can’t do it. To better our lives we should work on goals and help each other with them. My goal for the New Year is to get my business going. I think I can do it; there is still a lot to learn. But I want this bad enough that I know I won’t give up!
I would like to try something, I want to offer to a mentor to my follows. Just so I can start building my experience I really want to be able to help others, I also have hard times and I know what it’s like to be lonely or miss-understood. Thank you
Today I am trying to write on my new tablet, it’s exciting but I am still trying to learn how it works.. I got it to help me with my writing and also it’s helps me talk if I need! Technology has helped me so much to do more independently!! I am so thankful that I am able to do what I love doing, which is helping people! I don’t feel as disabled when I have the opportunity to work and help others!
Self-love is most important but sometimes it’s the hardest to do. We all think we could be better, different but we don’t have to. The way life is we think being different isn’t well taken by others. But I think it’s awesome; who why would you want to be normal? I know I don’t want to be normal. But if someone who has a differences and because of it; they have been made fun of or out cased they would not think as I do.
“Seeking love keeps you from the awareness that you already have it — that you are it.”
— Byron Katie’’
“Know thyself. Accept thyself. Love thyself. No matter what you have done, where you have been, know, accept, and love who you are.”
— Iyanla Vanzant. Do you accept, love yourself, do you know yourself? Life can be hard even if you have everything going right. Sometimes we don’t like who we are just because life wants us to think that if we have a difference it’s not ok but guess we all have some kind of difference so it should not be a big deal. But there are people who are hurting because the public makes us feel that different is not good but it is. Love who you are.
I like this quote because we all get this feeling sometimes where; when we have something we want do maybe in our lifes or even something else. You think that you can’t do it. Just keep trying!
“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher”
“Somebody needs what you have to give. It may not be your money; it may be your time. It may be your listening ear. It may be your arms to encourage. It may be your smile to uplift. Who knows? Maybe just like that little baby, putting your arm around somebody and letting him or her know that you care can help begin to heal that person’s heart. Maybe you can give a rescuing hug.”
— Joel Osteen. I love this so much. We don’t recognize how much love is needed to heal. You can say you are happy but love makes it all worth it
“Real love is opening your heart to the unlovable. Real gratitude is giving thanks when things aren’t perfect. Real generosity is sharing when you have very little. Real courage makes the ‘impossible’ — possible, with real faith.” — Bryant McGill
I think I understand how love is needed, how much love can change lifes! If you are in a low time in life and you know you have somebody who you can talk to at anytime, knowing that helps just they would do anything for you. Its hard to find people who will do that. Love is not thinking about what others think it’s how you feel. Sometimes I wish there were more ways to explain how much I love, I want them to understand how much I love them, but I don’t think I can!
“There will always be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life or you’re the one that will need to change theirs.” — Angel Harefa
I think there is always a reason why you meet the people who are in your life. You may not know it but there is a reason always.
My CP can be so tight and in doing excise or anything else can be so hard, but I keep going yesterday was an tighter day. I had to go to project walk and nominally it helps. But not yesterday, I have so much that I’m excited for that it makes me tighter then normal. CP is not the same every day well least mine isn’t, that is what is the hard part of my cerebral palsy. But it’s what I have to deal with to keep moving forward, all that to say there are many people who have it hard, and may not think they could be supported but you are; your journey may be hard but you are not alone! Don’t hide you!
Your heart is not broken. Hearts don’t break. What you are feeling is growing pains. Your heart is expanding in wisdom, compassion, and strength, so one day, you can love even more.” — Bryant McGill
Look around do you see people hurting?
People waiting to be loved the way they are.
But they hide because nowadays
people think to be different is bad
it’s not, it is what makes us all unique and special.
Being different is what life is about!
“Stop comparing yourself with other people. You are an original.” -Joyce Meyer
Why do we like to compare ourselves to others all the time? We are all different so what its awesome the person that you are there is only one amazing you! Why hide who you are when you are amazing. You have some differences that you hide because you are afraid others might not like, that just means that they aren’t good enough have you because you are AMAZING!
“What are you feeling blessed for today?” — Simple Reminder. Easy Love. Love always! !
“The greatest gift you can ever give to others is unconditional love and acceptance.” — Brian Tracy. I believe in this people are the best gift you get friendships that are always accepting of who you are. It’s not always easy to feel accepted or making new friends; when you are different or have a disability as the world sees difference! That is disability is, a difference and everyone is different!
“Being a little weird is just a natural side effect of being awesome.” — Sue Fitzmaurice Be who you are because there is only one of you and is amazing! ! !
I have been following some different life coaches on facebook. I’m wanting to become a life coach; I think it would be awesome not because I want the title behind my name but I think it would help in my goal of having my own business or on line community, be for now I just lean from other life coaches the idea of going back to school lol; does not sound fun! But anyway these a life coach who does a ”dear you”, I love it. I think I’m going to start doing it, let’s see how it goes!
Dear you, I can see your difficulties , difference I understand hiding them and be so called nominal would be easier, to make friends, to become independent, but why be nominal and do the same thing as everyone else! You are unique that is awesome you don’t need to be normal. You are so loved, needed. Love yourself more than anything!
Life is amazing as I think about what I’ve decided to do bloging as inspire, support and love others through writing; when the funny thing is I can’t spell that well. But I love writing and doing it my childhood wish is actually coming true! I love it! I was in a place, at the beginning of this year where the bad thoughts was not helping, in to thinking that I couldn’t do this. But it was not me. We all going through times where the bad thoughts takes over but at some point you get out of it and start moving forward. Depression has been a topic I feel like I could support. I didn’t go to school for it, but it’s been in my heart to others. Depression among other disability have always interested me. For depression is something people are afraid of, why. It’s different disability but it is a disability! I know a disability means you need to help and you can’t help who you are because of that differences you can not help it! All that to say I want to bring more awareness to all kinds of disabilities!
“Nothing is more important than empathy for another human being’s suffering. Nothing. Not a career, not wealth, not intelligence, certainly not status. We have to feel for one another if we’re going to survive with dignity.”
— Audrey Hepburn
This is so true, I love this. Sometimes we don’t help people because first we may not know how to help or we feel afraid that they may not understand how much we care! Do it anyway!
I think this is so true, love is everything it is everywhere. I know love can do so much for someone especially if they feel alone or if they are going through a hard time.
”Let truth, beauty and love be your guide. Truth is found in the exaltation and protection of beauty. Beauty is like a pristine peak on the landscape of life; yet un-savaged by man’s gruesome defilements. Simple truth is ever-awaiting under the patina of common falsehoods. And how can you know something as subjective as truth? You can know something is a lie when it has no love in it. Hence, truth is the spirit of all that is good and worthy through loving. Love has perfect eyes for beauty. Love can see the limitless beauty within self and within others. Love is open to all possibility. Every great master knew love as their only master. Love exalts because it is exalted. When you become love you become divine because love is divine. The self-realized spirit is merely a spirit emancipated from fear, judgement and knowing. When you feel lost turn towards love. Become a seeker of beauty in all things. Each moment has an unrealized dimension of beauty that only your perspective can liberate. When we become seekers of truth and beauty, we are creating truth and beauty. Your perspectives change your realities. Your vision determines your destination.
— Bryant McGill”
It is easy to know your purpose in life because you choose your purpose in life. A purpose does not just happen; it is cultivated. A purpose does not come as a grand, all-encompassing and final solution or supreme-understanding. A purpose is more like a positive daily-grind, with gratitude and a smile. A purpose is nothing fancy and is not reserved for spiritual teachers, so-called geniuses or impassioned artistes. There is nothing more practical, down to earth and easily accessible as a purpose. You will find your purpose revealed in every single action, once you realize that — you — are your purpose. Your life is your purpose. We don’t “get” a purpose. We are witnesses to the unfolding of our purpose as our purpose is revealed to us daily by how we live life. The people who seem to know their purpose are sometimes just more present in their own choices and more focused with their gifts; gifts all of us have — yes, even you. But your purpose isn’t to merely craft and showcase your gifts. Your purpose is deeper than the busy-work of talent. Your purpose is with you at every moment. Your purpose is simply what you do each day. Your purpose is what you are experiencing in the living of your life. Your purpose is a great unfolding; a distinctive honor granted to all life — highest among those honors is the gift of freedom of thought and choice. The purpose of your life is the purpose you bring to it, choice by choice, and recognition by recognition. If you don’t know your gifts, your gifts and purpose know you — and if you are open, you will not have to find them, because they will find you.— Bryant McGill
It’s hard to find out what is your purpose in life is. For me, it was always a feeling that I would help others. I love being able to be there for a loved one or support someone who is going through a hard time. I don’t know why but I have known I could make a difference in people’s lives.
Hi my amazing friends. Hope you are well. I wanted to tell you guys that I won’t be able to write for a few weeks. I am going home to South Africa and I get some time with all my family; I feel a child on Christmas morning! This trip is huge for me I have no had my whole family together in one room in years so you can understand that feeling! Yes, I have a great family here and I love that my close friends have become my family and I could not be more lucky enough to have friends who think of me as their family I love them more than I could say! But it’s a different feeling going home. And I can not tell you how happy I am! Remember love is everywhere.
“Somebody needs what you have to give. It may not be your money; it may be your time. It may be your listening ear. It may be your arms to encourage. It may be your smile to uplift. Who knows? Maybe just like that little baby, putting your arm around somebody and letting him or her know that you care can help begin to heal that person’s heart. Maybe you can give a rescuing hug.”— Joel Osteen in “Somebody needs what you have to give“
Love this quote, its so TRUE. Love can be a light to someone who is going through a hard time more than you may realize! Maybe you are the only friend they have or by you be a support they don’t feel so alone! Love that we give may mean more to them than we could never know!
“Everyone comes with baggage. Find someone who loves you enough to help you unpack.”— Unknown Author
in “Everyone comes with baggage“
Finding someone like that can be hard most of the time we don’t want to deal with someone else’s baggage or hard time. But when someone can see you thought the baggage you know that relationship is for good.
“Make a gift of your life and lift all mankind by being kind, considerate, forgiving, and compassionate at all times, in all places, and under all conditions, with everyone as well as yourself. This is the greatest gift anyone can give.”— David Hawkins
in “Lift all mankind by being kind”
We forget that the best gift of all; is the relationships we have. People who in our lifes. We think a gift is something we buy, but the best gift we can get is each! Each relationship we have has something different that only you and that person share which makes it special it’s yours, nothing else is the same as that one relationship with that person! We could have everything in life the right job, a huge home, and money but that is not what makes us truly happy it is the people who make us feel like we mean something to their world!
I have always said that family, love are two things that never change. If they do then it was not meant to be or maybe it has changed but if the friendship matters the way you feel never will! You may not talk or have seen a family member or a friend in some time, and I know that can be hard to feel like they still love you. But I realized that shouldn’t matter. When you really need them that is what matters! I have talking to old friend who I met in high school we met on one of my walks with my dog Skye I was trying to get back on the sidewalk and I started watching kids , it was the first time I got to babysit! She was home but doing house work but I could keep them busy and she would have to do her stuff I really loved the opportunity to have a job, then she started helping me with homework and other things. It was great to have some where to go after school, we became friends which I loved the two kids were so cute! We did a lot together; then they had to move and somehow we didn’t talk as much but she came back for my high school graduation which meant so much to me. But then we got busy with life and didn’t talk forever, but somehow a few mouths ago we started talking and it’s like nothing ever happened; our friendship is the same awesome I feel closer to her now actually. But all that to say when any kind of relationship is meant to be, it will always be there! I am so happy that we are close again!
