I was going to post this before the New Years but I was away traveling for a cousin’s wedding and for a few days to the place I was born. So I just know have the time to sit down and finish writing this.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
As this chapter of my life ends with a countdown, I realize that I’m not countin’ down to the end, I am counting down to the beginning.
This last year (2015) felt like a lifetime. From having surgery to being diagnosed with CRPS/RSD a rare illness that only affect about 20 Million in the States and 5 Billion Worldwide.
Nothing ever happens the way you expected, and my life is no different!
Trust me I definitely learned that the hard way in 2015 from learning how to walk again to dealing with the fact that I have to live with this illness for the rest of my life!
But my faith in God showed me that there is still magic in this life.
After everything that I’ve had to go through just knowing that God will never be far from my side and that my family is by my side whenever I need them.
I feel so fortunate for having a mother like mine because with everything I’ve gone through, she has been there for me from day one and I couldn’t have asked for a better person or a Woman to call my Mother.
With everything that I have been given in my life, the good and bad they don’t compare to what 2015 had put me through…but believe it when I say that I’m far from done.
So no matter what the future holds, I know for a fact that it’ll be crazy but it will also be beautiful.
