Welcome to The World Through My Dyslexic Eyes

This is my story and my life. I have a goal and dream I have been chasing for over six years now. It all started back on August 6, 2011, when I started writing, and that night I decided I want to become an author. I believe I have a unique story, and I think the world needs to hear it. Just like the world needs to hear all of our stories. I had my struggles and ups and downs just like everyone else. I was definitely down for a long time. Over the years I have found a way and kept battling to make it through my dark tunnel. Even with my learning disabilities, I felt like everything was against me. I realized everything wasn’t against me, I was using it as an excuse and being lazy.

I’m not saying I’m better than anyone else. What makes me different, or at least my opinion Is I finally decided to do something about it. I stopped feeling bad for myself, and letting everything get to me and decided to make a change. I created this blog and website to share my story with you, and try and give back and help people. Mostly kids to not make the same mistakes that I did for years. Wasting this precious gift that we call life, I wished my childhood away and now I’m 28.

I’m Still Learning

I’m still working and trying to figure out what my purpose is and what’s next. I think now I can finally say after all of this time, I’m starting to understand life and the direction I’m heading. I’ll admit, Peter A. Harrower is not a household name YET. If you’re going to have a dream and goal, then you should make it big enough that it scares you. It should be worth fighting for. If nothing else hopefully I can give you that little extra push to keep going and keep fighting. Welcome to The World Through My Dyslexic Eyes.

My Book is now available on Amazon on Kindle and Paperback.

About Me

Where to begin

So you want to know more about me, well you have been warned haha just kidding. Well for starters I was born on March 25, 1990, in the beautiful Amish country in Lancaster PA. That was the day the world was in for some trouble, aka my family. I’m the youngest of four, and also the only boy of the family. So if you are wondering I’m the favorite of the family. Yes, if you are wondering my sisters might have played dress up with me. Also, maybe they treated me like one of their dolls at times. What can I say, I thought it was funny and I wanted to be with them. What younger sibling wouldn’t want that? My oldest sister is 12 years older than me. You could say I was a mistake or I was a gift to the family. Either one works, but realistically it’s the second one haha.

One thing I do remember, I have always had an Imagination, going back to my earlier years. I was always daydreaming thinking about this or that, anything really that didn’t have to do with school. I think one of the main reasons why I remember that so clearly is because I’m Dyslexic and I have a Learning Disability. With that, I had to think different be different, and look at life and well school and everything in front of me differently than most. At the time having those burdens, I thought I was being punished or I did something wrong to be that way. Thinking to myself, I thought I was stupid, dumb, an idiot you name it I thought it or probably called myself it.

I didn’t like being different

Changing schools in 2nd grade. The school I was attending couldn’t really help me anymore. I just wanted to be normal and hide in the back and just roll with it and finish the day and school and move on. My school wasn’t prepared for a kid like me at the time I guess.

In the later years, I was told, my situation was all new to them. Even though it was hard changing schools, and I developed a lot of personal issues from the transfer and my disabilities. A lack of confidence in myself is one of the main ones I picked up on my journey. I didn’t care at the time, call it selfish or bitter or the fact I was six years old, I was just too young to really think about it. Maybe my situation helped opened up the school’s eyes to my issues, and help prepare them for kids after me? I guess if that is true then it would be worth it, being the guinea pig going through it all first to help pave the way for them.

Dealing with the ups and the downs

All the lows that I have had or battled through the last 27 years. I think I might have finally found my purpose in life, and why I went through all of these issues and hills I had to climb? My goal and purpose in life are to show people that even though I’m dyslexic or have a Learning Disability, and had these roadblocks all my life. That is no excuse anymore, and that’s not a valid reason for why I can’t or you can’t be successful. We all have our own personal issues and battles we go through every day, or in are a lifetime. Some way worse than others absolutely, I won’t disagree with that.

Now with my new purpose

I now have new goals to aim for I now feel purpose and feel a little relieved. Sure I still have my moments; of course, nobody said it would be easy. Now my new goals are driving me to be successful. My goal now is to become a published author and enter a field that I sucked at in school and accomplish something I would never have imagined in a million years. Peter, a writer, and an author, no way I can’t do that you’re crazy?

In school, if you would have told me that was going to be a goal I would have laughed at you. I would then go off to practice for whatever sport I was playing at the time. I always thought sports was going to do it for me, not books and writing? A number of books I actually read in school cover to cover, I could probably count on one hand. Now in the last two years alone, I have read over 30 books. Within the last six years, I have written three books with the word count ranging from 75,000-90,000 words.

Being successful

Fixing your way’s and changing is possible, and to show you first-hand you can to do it. I’m just a regular guy trying to be a part of something bigger than myself. I want to help people and impact their lives. Someday’s I still want to keep to myself and not share my story. Then I realize what good is that going to do for the world? In the end, I could be doing more damage than good, by not opening up and sharing my story.

I’m here just to share my story and maybe show you with a little hard work that anything is possible. We all look at the world a little different and we all have different goals that we are working towards. Or maybe different battles we went through. I’m just one opinion and a different pair of eyes just trying to show you a different perspective on life. Trying to share with you that anything is possible if you are willing to work for it. Welcome to my life, welcome to The World Through My Dyslexic Eyes.
