Yes, spinal-cord injury is hard. But like so many other things in all our lives, it is just one of a myriad of past experiences that I live with in the present and doesn’t have to stop me from flourishing in the future.
Just a dream I once had. It was surreal and yet so real, unexplainable yet totally understandable, joyful and yet painful. You know, like most dreams… but not.
Happiness, like most good things, doesn’t come easy. It takes work and resilience and is ours for the taking.
I’ve been so focused on the “new me” post-injury, I didn’t notice the old me slipping away. And I am kind of okay with that.
