2017 was undoubtedly the most transformative year of my life.
Challenges are what build us. They push us, make us stronger. This past year I went through a challenge that changed my life forever. This image I took back in June after my accident. It’s something that I can’t articulate into words, an experience that will haunt me no matter how much I try to push it away.
I’m learning to grow, and a part of my ultimate growth from this experience is voicing and coming to peace with the reality.. It’s been left a mystery so I’m using this to come to peace with it and let it go.
On a Friday night, I was driving my scooter over to a friends house. It was late evening, dark. I was lost in my own world. Wearing headphones, blasting music, no helmet. My purse wrapped visibly around me ; going 60km per hour. Before I had the time to process what was happening, 2 men drove up on a scooter alongside me and attacked me. They kicked me in the side while driving, as I fell the man grabbed my purse and threw me into the road. I smashed into the street and tore up the entire right side of my body. Conscious, but I couldn’t move. All I could do was lay there and scream. They took all my things, and left me in the middle of the road covered in blood.
As rough as this was, I’m thankful. I’ve come to peace and gained a new perspective. Life is a GIFT. We all live days as if tomorrow is guaranteed. Through this I’ve learned that life is a blessing and we can’t assume that we have tomorrow. Since this day, I have been living life to the highest potential. I haven’t looked back. I’m pursuing what I know is my destiny and not questioning my power.
Let this be your sign. To let go and live. Pick up the phone. Confess your love, give back in gratitude. Buy that plane ticket, and go even if you’re scared to go alone. This is YOUR life. Heal your wounds. Rise above what it is that may be holding you back. Pursue your passion. This is your sign to let it all go. I am here for you, just as all of you have been here for me. Let's seize the day. Bring it on, 2018. I’m ready for you. #2018
