A little more about Kevin
Crippled Wisdom is a project that allows me, Kevin Chong, an opportunity to share wisdom, which is experiences and knowledge that I’ve gained from 50 years of living with Cerebral Palsy. I can also use my wisdom for good by donating all proceeds to local charities.
Living with Cerebral Palsy for my entire life has given me other ways of viewing life from big things to little things. I’ve referred throughout my life to the quote from Walter Hagen “You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry. Don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” Well I only have one physical speed, slow. When you move as slow as I do you get to smell every flower along the way.
I’ve been fortunate to live an adventurous life and even more fortunate to be told at an early age that my mind is the thing that will take you place and that it has. We all have the ability to gain knowledge. Knowledge give us the confidence to extend ourselves beyond comfortable boundaries. That’s when experiences happen and after gaining multiple experience in each aspect of life wisdom begins to guide us.
My hope with Crippled Wisdom is more than sharing my wisdom. It’s an opportunity to gain more experiences and knowledge from each individual that sits before me with question. Then each interaction promotes growth and confidence that can spread beyond a ten minute period of Crippled Wisdom.
