It has been a gift, really....something I never would have imagined needing, as I'd always prided myself in being a strong, independent type. It is tough to admit "dis-ability." I think somehow, our
culture has morphed the concept into a dreaded lot-in-life to be avoided at all cost, as to admit it would equate with throwing-in-the-towel.
The truth I have found however in coming to embrace this new life I'll be facing, is that the inner drive to overcome, and that drive to keep on, keeping on is amazing. It is a STRENGTH. As I have shared my struggle and this journey, I feel honored to have met so many others overcoming obstacles of all types. There is really something quite sacred about joining together in this space....something which is deeper and more real than anything I have ever experienced in my lifetime until this point.
It is with a grateful heart that I'm moving forward with this huge life-change. I am grateful for all those who have also shared how they have risen from the ashes, and have shown me the view from the other side.
I know there's a long road ahead, but this is the beginning of a new life, and I've found some great fellow-travelers. I'll be looking for more....there's a lot of life out there to explore!
