I’m quite at peace with where I’m at.
Of course, there will always be things to work on and move towards,
and every once in a while I will get overwhelmed with everything that’s going wrong and experience a meltdown for a while – it’s part of the healing process too.
But to be here,
present in this very moment,
with a fragile body that hurts twenty-four-seven,
and still feel alright deep down
is nothing short of an achievement.
The way things were going,
I didn’t think it was ever possible – this ability to be okay with a disability and exist without too much dependence on someone.
Nature always does something to me. It gets me thinking (in a good way) and in some ways, brings out the real me in me.
As I sat there by the water today, looking at the magnificent colours around me,
I knew it was all okay. And going to be okay.
I was there with my knees swollen but my heart was full of love and gratitude.
All that I need in this phase of life, I already have.
A big thank you to all those who are a part of my journey.
