Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day!

Happy cerebral palsy awareness day to everyone with CP out there! This is the day when we should all reflect back on our lives and see how far we’ve come despite the struggles we face. A year ago, I would never have thought I’d be so happy as I am now. CP has made me a stronger person, who had to fight and never give up to achieve her dreams. I am extremely grateful to everyone who has helped me along my journey – pushing me along to  watch me succeed. Last year I was hating myself for being different and not being able to do things that others could do, I wished I didn’t have CP.

However, today I am a completely different person as I’ve realised that being different is great – it makes us unique. It has made me grateful for all the little things in life. Recently I gave a short speech about myself in school for them to see that nothing is impossible and if they really want to do something they can. A disability doesn’t stop you!

This year has been great-I have met new, amazing friends, one of which also has cerebral palsy. She is an amazing, strong and determined woman who is always willing to achieve her goals and help others. She’s inspired me, helped me accept myself and taught me how to love myself! Thanks to her, I have now become more open about my disability and won’t let it hold me back! It feels amazing to have someone that is like you, someone who you feel comfortable with and who you can be yourself with. If it wasn’t for my friends who accept me no matter what, I don’t where I’d be now. This is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I thank them for that.

My message to all of you is if you believe you can achieve. Writing these blogs has helped me believe in myself, connect with people in a similar situation and be more open about the difficulties that I face because of CP. But, despite my difficulties, I still get through and manage to achieve great things. My life has been full of obstacles but they have made me the woman I am today!

We are able to do so much – even if we don’t think so, let’s continue fighting and working hard for success!

Happy CP Awareness Day! I am so grateful for all my supporters!! Hope you all have a great Easter xx
