Although it wasn't always like this, since the process of my book getting published, I wanted to share my experiences with the world so that people who feel defeated can know because they see that there is a way to not feel that way or anyway that speaks less than as long as you're willing to do the work. I want to encourage by example by sharing a word or a smile to the people that look for it without saying it because a true giver of encouragement can tell. I want to empower by example. I want people to look at me and see many things, but the one thing I want people to see is, the strength and power that works within me.
Some people may not notice my physical differences right away, but I know they're there but I made a choice. That choice was to accept the things that I could not change ((The Serenity Prayer)). I have learned to accept the fact that these things are a part of me. These things make me who I am. These things challenge me daily. These things about me are rare but they are real. I have them as mine, but they do not the ability or the power to get the best of me. Through my writing, I do not leave any stone unturned. Everyone that reads Part One will see and be able to feel the emotions as they play out in the book and that is something that I am proud of.
For me, the title speaks of cerebral palsy, amniotic band syndrome, and hydrocephalus but I wanted the title to be customizable to the reader. When someone is reading the title, they're speaking of themselves and everyone has something that they like/dislike about themselves. Whether the world sees those things or not, I want every reader to know that they are undefeated no matter what!
