Have you read about Yvonne in the paper yet? StarTwo, Youth section, page 4 & 5 title Plucky Teen. A brief online version here.
Read and I hope everyone is inspired as much as I. She had to give up a lot of things due to her medical condition. Here’s is part of what is written,
â€œIâ€™ve since put (that loss of) the music passion behind me,â€ adds Yvonne, who then found that she was not even able to sing because of erratic hearing and imbalance. â€œFortunately, I was also reminded that I am someone who has always been able to adjust to new environments very quickly.â€
Music was not the only passion she left behind, as Yvonne also did ballet, figure-skating and karate.
â€œI canâ€™t do those things anymore so all of that energy has shifted to writing. I have found that writing is the only thing that I can do in the long run. Nowadays, it is what I concentrate all of my energies on,â€ she says.
She adapts…..with guts.
Oh ya, support Yvonne in the blogathon this Saturday. And all the other bloggers too.
