Tourette Syndrome Talk-Book Excerpt-Don't Miss the Forest

I’m wrapping up the Introduction from my book “You Can Do the Impossible, Too!” in today’s #TouretteTalk. Just sharing these blog articles over the last few weeks has helped me gain a new perspective on living with Tourette Syndrome and any other “impossible challenge” that you and I may be dealing with.

As you read the book excerpt below, please keep in mind the simple idea of “missing the forest because of the trees.” It’s very easy to get caught up in the things that are right in front of you, including the immense difficulties that you may be dealing with. When someone makes fun of you and hurts your feelings, I want you to remember that this too shall pass.

I know how difficult it can be to live with uncontrollable tics. I know how easy it is to get lost in self-defeating inner-talk. I know how depressing it can be to not see any end in sight to your pain and frustration.

Tourette Syndrome Talk-Book Excerpt-Get In the Ring

In today’s #TouretteTalk I continue to share an excerpt from the Introduction of my book “You Can Do the Impossible, Too!” As I outlined in last week’s article, I’m getting more and more comfortable getting vulnerable and raw with the world about living with Tourette Syndrome.

Interestingly enough, what I find happening is that as I share about living with TS, I also get more and more power over it. What was embarrassing in the past is becoming a source of strength.

Ideas are coming to me on how to empower other people living with Tourette’s, autism, depression, mental health disorders, and more. In fact, if you have ever felt ashamed or like an outcast, I want to be someone who empowers you and helps you realize what special gifts you bring to the world.

I guess we will all see how that manifests itself here on my blog. In the meantime, I hope today’s book excerpt gives you encouragement.
