I will be forever more condemned to wear boots
outside in the yard
After my last fall my family has demanded
I wear boots in the yard!
Oh well to protect my knees
that have gone on me, I will obey.
The coming of Spring always reminds me of what I can't
or shouldn't do because of possibility
of further injury to my already damaged body!
It has been 15 years since the accident that changed my life
and I still struggle most mornings to
just get out of bed and begin a new day!
Blogging has changed my life in so many ways,
it has given me an outlet to let go of frustration
and accept my life for what it is - wonderful!
I have a home and a loving family!
A place to be and I can walk!
I am so grateful I can walk.
Acceptance that I may never be famous or rich.
I was very ambitious back then and very good with computers.
The internet has all this online training running 24/7
I made those classes for colleges before they
ever went on the net.
It all developed from computer based training.
I have had to redefine who I was after my job
and the education that went into it.
It was gone in a flash
I was barely able to do anything
much less think clearly and communicate
without some random thought
blanking out my mind.
It was really bad in the beginning,
my poor family.
It is only now that I realize how very lucky I am to have them.
I was a woman who needed a purpose for being!
An identity crisis until one day my husband and daughter bought me an iPad.
Using a computer is almost impossible for me for any length of time.
Sitting or standing for to long in any position causes problems.
On the outside I looked pretty normal
on the inside everything was kind of a mess!
Including my brain!
Jump ahead 15 years to now!
I think clearly most of the time !
I sew most days and truly enjoy it!
I get around sometimes slowly but I get there!
I blog - writing, reading, sewing all stimulates the brain!
I find pleasure in life!
I truly believe that someone out there has it worse that me
so I shouldn't ever feel sorry for myself. I have found this to be very true.
I could have it a lot worse and thank God for saving me in so many way.
Why did I just write this post?
I am not really sure except to tell you
that whatever you are going through don't give up on yourself!
Things change it may be quickly or take years.
Nothing is impossible you just might
have to learn a new way to do it!
Thank you for listening to my ramblings!
Create something and be Uniquely You!
