Why I Blog and the Benefits to Reading my Blogs.

Why I Blog and the Benefits to Reading my Blogs.

Writing diaries is something I’ve done from childhood, they’ve been vital for my daily survival and development. The methods used to keep diaries may’ve changed over the decades as technology has progressed but the fundamental reasons behind writing have largely remained the same. I suppose the question you maybe asking yourself is; Why am I sharing my experiences and diary entries with you? What benefit to reading my diaries and blogs is there for you? 
I’ll try and answer that now.

I’ll start by telling you what I’m NOT trying to achieve and DON’T WANT.

  • I neither seek nor need your attention.
  • I don’t need anything from you.
  • I don’t need you to feel sorry for me.
  • I don’t need you to motivate me, i’m a self-motivator.
  • There is no need to be critical of me or my circumstances, there is no need to be critical because I critique myself daily, no one could be more critical of me than me.
  • If you don’t like my posts for whatever reason scroll on by, there is no need to comment & no need to be; unpleasant or abusive.

Now I’ll tell you what I’m TRYING to achieve and DO WANT

With the support of my team- 
  • I do want to raise awareness of the physical and mental challenges faced on a daily basis living with a brain injury disability & other neurological conditions 
With the support of my team- 
  • I do want to promote the work I am doing on behalf of the parishioners, businesses and stakeholders of; Braunstone town, Leicester Forest East & the wider demographic area in my role as a democratically elected Independent Councillor. 
With the support of my team- 


  •  I Do want to raise awareness of all forms of; abuse, hostility and prejudices; to encourage survivors to speak and to seek the support that they may need.


With the support of my team- 

I do want to promote my

Not-for-profit award-winning literary works which have been written to support and encourage; other survivors, businesses, service providers and service users to improve their personal and professional circumstances & the services they offer through my experiences.


Finally I’ll advise you of what the benefits are of reading my blogs and visiting my websites.

BENEFITS

The human brain is a complex organ. The way in which we (as humans) process, function and survive differs greatly from one being to another. There are similarities between us but the fundamental principles are the same. It matters not a jot who you are or how much wealth one has acquired, everyone has their own pleasures they live, difficulties to overcome & their own life’s journey to undertake. Through my literary works I want to share my journey with you so that you can understand how I’ve used reflective practices, experiences and techniques to overcome adversity (with the support of my team). By reading my posts, by communicating with me and allowing me to share my world with you, it is hoped that you will enhance your understanding of the complex world around us. In so doing you will improve your professional and personal circumstances which will have a positive impact upon the wider community. If I can inspire at least one person to overcome their problems and one organisation to improve the products and services they offer then the bad experiences I’ve overcome will have been worthwhile. 

My motto is ‘To triumph over adversity is my greatest strength’.

Week Ending 16th February 2020

Saturday, 15 February 2020

This week has been a challenging week.

Living with a brain injury disability is very challenging on a daily basis. 
One of the most frustrating aspects is when I cannot recall what I was doing a very short time ago. It’s very time consuming to repeatedly refer back to CCTV and audio recordings to establish what I was doing a very short while ago. My home and outbuildings are covered by internal and external CCTV and audio recording equipment, the recordings happen 24/7/365. It’s my way of trying to manage the best way I can.

In addition, I wear tracking equipment which can be remotely tracked by Leicestershire Police and other agencies in the event I become lost or missing.  I frequently forget what I was doing and find myself in places and situations that I never had any intention of being or able to provide a reasonable explanation of how I came to be there. Thankfully I can be remotely when the need arises.
