Five years ago today I drove home from work as normal, it was a beautiful sunshiny day with bluish skies dotted with white fluffy clouds. On my drive I had thoughts of what my children and I would do that evening because it was just too beautiful of a day not to be out. But of all the things that went through my mind none of them ever involved sitting in a hospital. Not one of those thoughts were about having to relearn how to hold a pen in my hands, draw, walk and even sit for a period of time. None of those thoughts were of losing everything that I had ever known in a blink of an eye, endless doctor appointments and surgery. None of those thoughts were ever about having to rebuild my life.
These past five years have been a roller coaster of life lessons and a few failures but there are quite a few successes as well. There was a time that I despised the woman that hit me but after everything that I have endured and accomplished because of the accident I wouldn’t change it for the world. Today, I have my scars and things are still a little shaky in my life but I am happy with what I have recovered. I am thankful for the people who surround me and I am proud of myself for doing things that I NEVER thought I was strong enough to accomplish. Sometimes it sucks getting kicked around by life but I am proof that unless you’re dead than there is nothing that can’t be overcome…better yet… turned into something great!
Hope you are all around to see the next five years and what I can do! If you would like to read more about my story please visit In The Beginning – How My Photographic Journey Began
