Ok so this one is going to be a big #tellyourstory2014 moment for me.
Let me back up a little, originally my D word was going to be “donate” because I think what we chose to donate says a lot about us. Do you donate old clothes and household goods to Good Will? Or funds to your favorite charity? Maybe a walk or a run to raise awareness? Do you give your time to a cause that has touched your life? Or have you offered advice to help others get through a journey you have lived?
So when I dug a little deeper I knew my D had to be dyslexia. This is the D I donate all of my everything. My time, my funds, my ideas, and my stuff if they needed it. 🙂 Why…. because it it touches my life each and every day. I won’t bore you with all the details, but if you are interested you can read more about it here. https://www.learningally.org/dyslexia-the-first-eleven-years/
What I will tell you here, that I didn’t talk much about over there is how the last year has been a true self analysis of who I am, what I am capable of and how and why I choose to do the things I do. How dyslexia has defined me, with or with out me knowing I am dyslexic. It is part of who I am.
