Yesterday I heard the most incredible woman with a story, you wouldn’t wish for anyone in the world to have.
I had the privilege to hear the award winning standup comedian and motivational speaker, Kathy Buckley.
She is born deaf and put in a school for retarded, and it wasn’t until the age of 8 they figured out she was deaf. She experienced sexual abuse from her father and a friend, she has been diagnosed with cancer twice and at the age of 20 all her bones in her body was broken because a truck ran her over. The doctors told her that she would never be able to walk again.
But she did! Guess she didn’t heard them!
She learned herself to speak by the help of the vibrations through a balloon, she learned to lip read people, she learned herself to walk again by daily swimming, she forgave her dad, and in her first 30th got proper hearing aid and now experienced all the things most of us take for granted like singing birds, the traffic, farts (lol).
The girl diagnosed and labelled retarded is now an award winning comedian and international motivational speaker helping others to transform their lives and she is doing it by being herself, an authentic shining star willing to change her thoughts so they support her and propel her forward.
So don’t let your past define you.
Dont let your self sabotaging thoughts define you and destroy your present and future.
Don’t complain about your life, your weight or all the other stuff people usually complain about.
Be grateful for everything in your life, allow yourself to shine and value yourself each and every day.
If you find it difficult try this exercise Kathy guided us through
Close your eyes and imagine you just woke up in the morning, not able to move your body not even your head, not able to speak or tell people you hurt or how you feel.
You still don’t think you have something to be grateful for?
keep this in mind:
“No one value you more than you value yourself”
love & light
