Now that I am getting close a full year of recovery I feel like I am seeing the light. I can start making plans again and most of the time I can follow through! I still have some pretty challenging days here and there but overall I feel more like myself each day. I don't think I realized what an effect it had on my mental clarity until recently. I have been re-inspired to begin working on the projects I love and have really been able to fully focus for prolonged periods.
I continually look for the lessons in this experience. It has been mentally challenging because I tend to be very goal oriented and it is hard to have any time-sensitive goals when you don't know what your body has planned for you each day. I think I am continually learning patience, acceptance, and compassion for myself and others. People always say they are so sorry I have had to go through this but I'm not. There is no denying that it sucks but you don't grow or develop when life is easy. I still feel blessed and grateful for every aspect of my life no matter how bumpy the journey has been. The fact that I can walk again and I can still see my clients and teach classes makes my heart smile every single day. Everything we encounter in life is all about perspective and from my perspective I feel like an extremely lucky girl.
