My daughter was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when she was 6 months old. The doctors told me all the things that she can’t do, She can’t crawl, she can’t walk with out a brace, she can’t feed herself, she can’t dress herself. All the things she will not be able to do by herself. The more times I heard it, I knew there was only one thing to do. Taking the word can’t out of her vocabulary was the next obvious step. I taught her that she could do anything she set her mind to. She did things differently but she grew up knowing that she can.
Although I took the word out of her vocabulary, I never took it out of mine. Do not speak from your heart they said, Focus on stats and risk factors, symptoms and where to get help. I was silenced for a long time. I had many ideas but was told that they were stupid and I should keep my thoughts to myself. I was told I could not write letters so I should follow templates. The more I was told I can’t, the more I believed I could not. I was stuck in a job that I was not happy in. Stuck because how do I leave the flexibility I need for my family, how do I replace my benefits and of course the pension I was building. How do I give all of this up.
After 17 years I was downsized after a major restructure by the national office. The worse day of my life…the best day of my life. At first I thought what do I do now, I can’t go back to school, I can’t go back to the same kind of work,
What can I do…. I realized that if I could take can’t out of my daughters world, certainly I could take it out of mine. As I moved forward I realized that mindset was a huge part of it. I needed to focus on all the things I could do. I got to reinvent myself. I have helped people with their lives for years, now I had an opportunity to make that my life’s mission.
I learned how to speak my truth and stand in the power of my story. I have many gifts and know that everything I need is inside of me. I get to empower women to uncover their stories and live the life that they truly deserve.
