This blog started as merely a travel blog; something to document my upcoming travels in. But as my life and circumstances changed, so did this blog. It’s become one of the most important things in my life. Every week, I pour my heart and soul out to the world wide web, expecting nothing back but almost always being greeted by the most amazing interest and feedback. Growing up with a rare muscle disease was not easy for me for a very long time. I was often depressed, lonely and sure I would never find anyone out there like me and certainly would never find someone to love me. But with the words that go down on these pages, I’ve been welcomed with nothing but love and I’ve met so many other people (with or without a disability) who have felt or are going through the exact same thing I am going through or have gone through. I’ve felt more able to connect people in my own day-to-day life because of it and have made some great new friends too.
I want to thank my awesome parents for raising me…a task that I know could not have been easy as no manual for “How to Raise a Disabled Child” existed back then. I don’t think any one person could have been raised in a more loving and supportive home than I was. To all my amazing friends who have encouraged me along the way and embraced my being so vulnerable for the world to see, I thank you and send all the love in the world out to you. Thank you for the endless hours of listening to my issues, my boy problems and my tears. I thank those (both good and bad) who have inspired so many of the posts I’ve written on here. It’s not always easy to put yourself out there for everyone to read about but it means so much to get an award like this that acknowledges that that vulnerability has been recognized.
I dedicate this blog and this award to all those who feel different, anyone struggling to find their place in this world, all my Single Ladies and the wonderful people I’ve met and will continue to meet in this amazing thing called life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
