Cuddling the Shake / Abrazando el Movimiento de la



Greeting glorious ones and welcome to ATBAL.  Today I wanted to highlight a brilliant idea generated from the mind of the lovely Maggie at The Indian Savage Diary .  The concept centers around acceptance, more specifically, self acceptance.  The title of the project is "Cuddle Your Defect" and, as the name implies, it is intended that you would take something about yourself you do not like and, instead of being ashamed and hiding it away, you would proudly pull it into the light and share it with everyone.  It promotes loving yourself and it also helps other people connect and learn more about one another.  What better way to build a bond than to be so brave and open?

El saludo de glorioso y bienvenido a ATBAL. Hoy quise destacar una brillante idea generada de la mente de Maggie encantadora en The Indian Savage Diary . El concepto se centra alrededor de la aceptación, más expresamente, mí aceptación. El título del proyecto es "el Abrazo afectuoso Su Defecto" y, ya que el nombre implica, se quiere que tomara algo sobre usted no le gusta y, en vez de estar avergonzado y esconderlo lejos, lo tiraría orgullosamente en la luz y lo compartiría con cada uno. Promueve el cariño de usted y también ayuda a otra gente a unirse y aprender más el uno sobre el otro. ¿Qué mejor manera de construir una obligación que ser tan valiente y abierto?

My choice took a while to come to me.  I have many defects but I was lacking courage to share them.  And then it became very clear; something I have been dealing with and embarrassed by most of my life, my shakiness.  I have a mild form of Parkinson's disease known as an essential tremor.  My father has it, his mother had it.  What it means is I shake all the time, usually not too much unless I am nervous or tired or upset.  It has often robbed me of confidence in situations and I have avoided circumstances that might highlight it for fear of someone noticing.  No matter how sure of myself, no matter how bold I feel inside, still I shake and appear exactly the opposite.  It makes an already shy me much less likely to speak up or want to be noticed.  And, if I follow the path my grandmother and father went down, the shaking will get worse with age.  Already I think I notice more of it.

Mi opción tomó un tiempo para venir a mí. Tengo muchos defectos pero me faltaba valor para compartirlas. Y luego quedó muy claro; algo he sido tratan y avergonzado por la mayor parte de mi vida, mis temblores. Tengo una forma leve de la enfermedad de Parkinson conocida como un temblor esencial. Mi padre lo tiene, su madre tenía. Lo que significa es darle todo el tiempo, generalmente no es mucho si estoy nervioso o cansado o molesto. A menudo me ha robado de la confianza en las situaciones y circunstancias que pueden resaltar por temor a alguien lo note he evitado. No importa cómo seguro de mí mismo, no importa cómo negrita me siento por dentro, todavía me agite y aparecen exactamente lo contrario. Un tímido ya me hace mucho menos probable que hable o quiere llamar la atención. Y, si sigo el camino de que mi abuela y mi padre bajaron, el temblor va a empeorar con la edad. Creo que ya he notado más.

So celebrating such a thing was a real challenge for me, cuddling it seemed impossible.  But I made the effort and tried to look to find a bright spot regarding it.  For instance, any massages I give are automatically vibrating massages :)  But I never would have thought to discuss it let alone try and embrace it without this inspirational idea.  If you want to participate, I greatly encourage it.  Just tag something on Instagram with #cuddleyourdefect and tag @theindiansavage .  She will then share it on her IG and her Facebook as well.

Celebrando así que tal cosa era un verdadero desafío para mí, me parecía imposible abrazos. Pero hice el esfuerzo y trató de buscar para poder obtener un punto brillante sobre la misma. Por ejemplo, cualquier masajes que doy automáticamente vibran masajes :) Pero yo nunca hubiera pensado discutirlo y mucho menos tratar de aceptarlo sin esta idea inspiradora. Si quieres participar, grandemente la fomentarla. Sólo la etiqueta algo en Instagram con #cuddleyourdefect y @theindiansavage de la etiqueta. Entonces ella compartirá en su IG y su Facebook también.

I hope that if you are not already following Maggie, you will do so.  Her blog is filled with wonderful fashion and tips that I promise you will enjoy.  Thank you so much for your visit and spending some time with me.  You all get shaky but very warm hugs from me and wishes for a wonderful day :)

Espero que si usted no sigue ya Maggie, lo hará. Su blog está lleno de manera maravillosa y consejos que te prometo que disfrutará. Gracias por su visita y pasar un rato conmigo. Todos tienen tembloroso pero muy cálidos abrazos y deseos para un día maravilloso :)



Oh and you get a picture of Buddy too :x)  /  Ah y consigue un cuadro de Buddy también :x)

Oh dear Shamu! I do understand your state of mind and why you would be filled with self doubt at times. But it was so brave of you to share this on your blog. I admire you so much. I am sure you inspire many people.I was moved by this post.

What a great idea from Maggie! I must have missed this out on your Instagram since I don't tap into it and scroll all the newsfeed every day. I didn't know about your mild form of Parkinson. It must have been a "defect" that is so hard to cuddle since it is something uncontrollable and caused you much embarrassment throughout the years. I'm so glad that you've plucked up the courage to embrace it.

This is a great idea from Maggie and I think you are extremely brave to share and "cuddleyourdefect". I can totally understand how this must make you feel at times and why you feel embarrased and timid but you seem to be such a marvellous person with such a big heart that this small defect must be quickly overlooked by most. I admire you, as I am sure every one of your followers and readers do.
Love, Amy.
P.S. Great photo of Buddy. xoxoxo

So very wonderful of you, dear!!! That is so encouraging to see these words from someone I respect and care about so much. Makes me think maybe I am making a difference and being heard. I do not think my shaking will get in the way of any relationship I would want to have is the positive spin I will put on it. Words like yours help build my confidence though for certain :) Buddy and I love you too, dear :) xoxoxo

Wow, what a great idea! I like your perspective as the form of Parkinson's giving a vibrating massage! That's brilliant! Maybe I should do a post on mine! Not sure if many people will notice what mine is in photos the way they do in real life!!?x

Ahrgh, it didn't save!!! I love this idea and I love the way you found the positive of your form of Parkinson's as making a vibrating massage! That's cool!
I must do this with my defect. It's one that most people probably wouldn't notice on my blog but people, especially kids usually do instantly in real life!!x
