Happy new year everyone!
My first blog post of 2012 ended with me saying “so here’s to the new year-2012. May it bring more joy and fulfillment to my life. I hope to accomplish many more things and continue growing.”
Well, it brought all of the things I hoped it would and more. The biggest thing I accomplished was graduating Normandale community college with my Associates in communications. I also got accepted to the University of St. Thomas and will be attending this spring. I’m excited to be moving on and starting new adventures Avenue campus.
On August 29 Blake and I celebrated one year together. This is the joy and fulfillment I was looking for in my life. Love is amazing and I’m happy that I found it. I couldn’t ask for a better person to spend my life with. Sometimes I find myself drifting in and out of dreams about the future.
On another note, this year was also the 10 year anniversary of my accident, November 1, 2012. I also celebrated on this day but it was my life. I’m glad to have lived through everything I’ve been through. I believe that all of the things that have happened to me have been for a reason. I’m grateful to be alive and able to inspire and help others.
I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions, but my plan for this year is to keep on keeping on. The way things are going now couldn’t be better, so I look forward to continuing with life as is. I do have goals that I’ve set for myself that have to do with therapy and movement. One is to become stronger and be able to do more at once. It’s hard to push the limits with which my body is comfortable, but I’ve done it before and I know I can do it again.
So here’s to another year-2013.
