Warning, the following post may cause some sibling rivalry to flare up. Already I imagine younger brothers and sisters ready to protest the title. “An older brother’s wisdom?” they read in a questionable tone. “Blasphemy!” they decree before dismissing the read. WAIT! Please entertain me for a few more minutes.
You stayed?! Thank you. I understand emotions can quickly escalate when discussing siblings. So let us all take a deep breath. Now to journey onwards!
A recent chat with my older brother Bill inspired today’s post. Maybe that makes you wish you could hear our conversation. You can! The dialogue remained a part my efforts to let the world better know those I mention in my cerebral palsy memoir Off Balanced. Therefore you will find the aforementioned discussion at my Youtube channel.
MY Older Brother’s Wisdom
Essentially then I am not referencing just any older brother’s wisdom. Rather to clarify, I am spotlighting MY older brother’s wisdom. Praise I risk going to his head. After all, he always claimed to possess more smarts than our younger brother Nick and me.
Hopefully you read the above sentence as a humorous tease. On a serious note, I am glad to celebrate Bill’s wisdom if the results lead to others adopting his attitude towards people with disabilities. Watch the video and you should instantly recognize what insight I am keeping in mind.
Only the Beginning!
Obviously I am bias, but I believe my video with Bill proves compelling to watch for multiple reasons. There stands his attitude towards people with disabilities. An insight I simply allude to vaguely here. Consider my attempt to guarantee you click “Play” on the video.
Additionally, despite my CP Bill calls our brotherly relationship “like any typical set of brothers.” He shares why he would title his potential adolescent memoir The Boring Life. Bill also offers his takeaway from reading Off Balanced.
Perchance Bill’s thoughts on Off Balanced interest you in the read. You can find Off Balanced available on the Kindle and Nook. Or perhaps our video motivates you to hold a similar conversation with your older brother. Return afterwards and comment with how your dialogue went. I am always intrigued by your feedback.
