For most of my life I’ve wanted to be normal. Now I don’t even know what that means. I don’t want to be normal anymore if that means living a life of fear. I want to prove that a woman with cerebral palsy can run a successful business, be a wife, and a mother. Normal wouldn’t be honoring my granddad’s wishes before he went to Heaven. He wanted me to imagine bigger. He could have never imagined my life now.
As of yesterday: this blog’s reach went international. Y’all I have followers from the UK and Canada on Facebook. I also have two followers on Twitter from Africa. The fact that people from other countries care about what I have to say and my journey to thrive blows my mind in the best way possible. Nobody in my family is well known or rich. That this is what my Father had in mind makes me cry happy tears. I’m living proof what can happen when you take a leap of faith. The sky is the limit for this blog as long as I keep doing the work I’m supposed to. I know that now.
My brother/journey knew a long time ago that I was destined for a bigger life than I had planned. I was terrified of what that could mean though. I should have known he knew better. He can see me in a way I can’t. This blog post is tell everyone of you thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming along on this journey with me. It is also to tell you to do the thing you’ve been dreaming of that scares you. I’m proof positive leaps of faith pay off. The world needs your gifts. Imagine a bigger life for yourselves because that’s how we change the world. This I know to be true, now.
