One of the simplest but most effective ways to build a more positive outlook has in my experience been to ask more helpful questions as often as possible.

Tie My Shoes is a story about Lonnie E. Shipe, my life.  Born premature with cerebral palsy, living and functioning in a normal society while attending a public school system. Battling the struggles with leg braces, crutches and a “funny voice” and trying to be “normal” when my body, was far from normal.

 Some educators and medical doctors had little hope of me succeeding through school. As one medical doctor stated, when I was in the ninth grade, “This will be Lonnie's last year of school, CP'ers only go to the ninth grade.”

 

But with my dreams, hope, faith in God and the attitude my mother gave me in my childhood, “Can't never did anything, try and try again,” And working hard against the odds of physical barriers, the educational system a for nearly a decade, to earn my Masters Degree in Counseling Education with a post Graduate School Internship.

 Then adding to this struggle, “to just belong” I fell off my crutches and broke my neck. Life seemed to be ten times more difficult, in a millisecond.

The struggles of dating, sexuality, self-worth, depression, suicidal thoughts, to a wonderful marriage, a beautiful daughter and two grandsons. All of this because my mother kept repeating, “try and try again.”

 

With my desire to help inspire someone, sometime, somewhere, somehow, hopefully my writing will do so.

 With my desire and passion to help inspire someone, sometime, somewhere and somehow, hopefully my writing will do so.  Hopefully, with my story, "Tie My Shoes." We can help change the world together one person at a time.  This is my personal dream to share my story and this is extremely exciting.

 
Let us be passionate for others.
 
 Have A Great Blessed Day!
