DEAR SHARON IFEOMA......

Hey guys!

It's my Birthday again Yay!!! Thinking about how old I am really gave me the opportunity to re-evaluate myself, my life and how far I have come. It is a great opportunity for me to really think about who Sharon Ifeoma really is. How I'm living my life, I'm I inspiring, encouraging and touching lives as much I should? I'm I fulfilling God's intended purpose or I'm I just occupying space?

You see, everyday people tell me I inspire them in different ways. The things people tell me via calls, messages, emails etc about how I have touched them positively sometimes scares me. I wonder if all they say about me is all there is about Sharon Ifeoma. 

I know there's more to me than what meets the eye but to be honest, I am scared! Thinking about the ideas I have locked up inside, on paper and vision board scares me to death because I feel like the expectations, responsibilities as well as criticisms will increase. I also know that doing something you love and are passionate about exposes you to fame and limelight, I really don't know if I can handle all the judgement that comes with that territory.

WHAT IS "NORMAL" ANYWAY?


Lately, I've been thinking a lot about 'Normality'. What is normal anyway? It is so common these days that people feel ashamed to be themselves, they cover their scars and flaws nicely, they don't share their personal struggles so as to feel/be 'normal'.We hide parts of our lives from family and loved ones. Why is that? Well, I'd say because we want to Feel 'normal' ... Be 'normal' and Stay 'normal'. 

You this this photo up there, I would NEVER have shared it for anyone to see because that to me is not 'normal'. It's not just about my slim leg, if I have my way, I would even out my bum too. Insecurity you say? Yeah! try being in my shoes. BUT ain't we all insecure about some things in our bodies or lives?

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: A PATHWAY TO ACQUIRING DISABILITY



Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, yet we often excuse, deny and overlook the problem of domestic abuse in our society. Most times, the abuse is more psychological than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it.

Domestic abuse and violence are used for one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you. An abuser uses different means to hold you down. Fear, guilt, blackmail, intimidation and shame to wear you out and keep you down. An abuser doesn't play fair at all.

It occurs within all age range, race and economic levels. Domestic abuse often escalates from threats to verbal abuse to violence.

Set yourself free don't live in denial. Talk to someone you can trust about your situation. Help is always NEAR.

GRIEVING THE LIVING

"Grieving is a Multifaceted Response to Lose.... it is Physical, Emotional, Social ...."
Each time Mum returns home from a hospital visit, she changes to a complete different person. She cries a lot, talks to herself, the sky and anyone around, prays and she would ask questions that makes sense and those that really do not make any sense. My Mum is "grieving the living" ...... My aunt has been very sick for a while now and it's a little complicated. She's been moved from one hospital to another, different test has been carried out, seen by specialist doctors and money .... loads of money have also been spent and well she is still at the hospital and all we family can do is HOPE and pray.

Seeing my Mum grieve her living sister is very unconventional. It's not a situation people often pay attention to or talk about but, if we look deeper, it's happening in our society. It is a real issue faced by real people.

It doesn't make sense to grieve to grieve someone you haven't lost yet as death is often seen as the prerequisite for grieve However, we forget or don't pay attention to individuals who grieve their living loved ones because they are either in pain or helpless / hopeless situation. The situation is like watching your loved one slip away and there is nothing you can do about it.

DEPRESSION IS A WHISPERER

People especially adults often get told to ‘snap out of it’ …. This is easier said than done. We forget that it is extremely frustrating and difficult when an individual cannot fully control how they feel. This is not to say that people who are depressed can’t see any good in their lives or are always sad. It just highlights how bad and dangerous depression can be. Depression is a whisperer. It tells you everything you are not doing right, it magnifies your mistakes and short comings, gives you tons of reasons to be by yourself and to shot people out……. Most times, the voice in your head over powers you to the point where you begin to listen and give in it what it say.

FEEL MY PRESENCE

"When you feel my presence I will live within your soul and consciousness" _SharonIfeoma

The presence of something or someone in our lives has aura, emotion, power and energy that comes with it. everything in this world has energy and that includes inanimate objects. All you need to do is to pay close attention to your feelings and the aura that comes from what draws your attention. 

As an observer, you will be amazed and fascinated at how much information and knowledge you ignore just because you choose not to see beyond what is visible to your eyes and feel the presence and energy a person brings.

I have chosen to re-write my narrative and help others with disability tell their stories as should be told and to help make their presence felt through the things I do. 

Persons With Disabilities are beginning to find their voices and making it heard through their gifts and passion. You now find Musicians with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, blindness, Designers with speech defects, on wheelchairs, facial disfigurement ..... Engineers, Doctors, Lawyers, Artist professionals in various fields of life with different forms of disabilities changing the game in various industries, making their presence felt in more ways than before because it will be a disservice to the disable community if we keep hiding away and letting things go down south.

KEEP MOVING FORWARD


Our eyes are in front and not behind for a reason. It is much more important to look ahead than to look back. Do not dwell on the things in the past. Learn from them and keep moving forward. -Unknown

No matter where you've been, mistakes made and no matter what you think have gone wrong in your life, keep walking because so many good things are coming your way.

Life is full of ups and downs just like it is full of possibilities. Be curious about the good things that will happen to you soon....... See there's light ..... I can see it and I know you too can.
