The other day I was putting up my video on my blog’s Instagram when I happened to cross a video that was telling everybody what they should be doing. It struck me and it stayed with me. This video had thousands and thousands of views. I went and checked how many people had liked the video: thousands and thousands of people had liked the video as well. Why I wondered. Are we all so desperate for belonging that we need to be told how to be and what to do.
I sincerely hope not. In full disclosure, I give you all life lessons in both videos and blog posts, but I never want any of the lessons that I have learned, and choose to share with you all to take away from your own experiences and make them less than mine. I want you all to live your best life as you see fit and if you get something out of one of my posts. That is fabulous.
I share my story with you to process my own life and to lead the world know what it is like to live and thrive with CP. I do not pretend to have all the answers. In fact, I am always going to be learning how to live my best life. It is just important for me to let the world see and understand CP better. As a bonus, I can help people with ways to figure out their own challenges and make life a little easier than all the better.
What I am trying to say is that I do not have all the answers to how to live life well and I will always be learning but to have you all come along for the journey is a privilege I do not take lightly. I want my platform to be helpful and positive for every one of you and that is what I am going to continue to share my story in my life for. I want to motivate you all to live your most authentic life every day and that means showing you my authentic life instead of telling you what you ought to be doing. This post is my heart laid out for you all to feel and I hope you feel the sincerity in my words.
