In August, 2012, My Positive Perspective aired an episode that featured memoirs of two published authors. My Positive Perspective founder, Jason Deierlein, and author GL Giles shared their stories of growing up under different, challenging circumstances.

The things that now made me different in life were going to allow me a chance to do things I never thought possible

In August 2012, My Positive Perspective founder, Jason Deierlein, shared the published book, Return From a Comatose Mind. The book tells of Deierlein’s childhood days as a champion swimmer and how that prepared him for a car accident that required strength and perseverance to overcome. Without doubt his previous mental and physical conditions were helpful in shaping the extent that his rehabilitation would allow him to recover. While recovering from his injuries suffered in his car accident, Deierlein developed his positive perspective from befriending fellow patients at the hospital.

Published author, GL Giles speaks about the book she wrote about her life titled, A Wild Wonderful Walk in which she refers to as, “Something that could actually be called A Nerd’s Walk.” During the episode, Giles recollects that she was an outsider during much of her adolescent years. She proclaimed that she was hard for other kids to be friends with because they did not fully understand her.

This was something that Deierlein fully understands since he was put in a position that made him different not only from other people, but also different from whom he was before his car accident. Looking back on the incident, Deierlein says, “It was hard for me to accept this new person that I now was, but I knew the only way through it was to stay positive and optimistic.” This was going to open doors I never knew existed and it was going to allow me to experience something I would not be able to put into words how great it was.

The two authors put their life stories’ into context during the episode and was summarized perfectly at the end of the episode when author GL Giles commented by saying, “Do not be ashamed of who you are, the things that make you unique is always something to be proud of.”

My Positive Perspective is committed to the advancement of lives and believes that we all should appreciate everything that gives us motivation to put negative things in our lives behind us and move on to the next positive accomplishment that makes us proud.
