Back To Life & Reality
It’s hard to swallow every time. I had the most productive week I’ve had in over 38 months. A huge part of me thought the old me was coming back. Just to drive myself a few places on my own was big. Having the opportunity on consecutive days to be there for others was even bigger.
Then, I woke up this morning knowing the bitter truth. Yes, I’ve made some improvements and regained my recovery momentum. However, my condition overall is still the same. I can’t drive anytime without great consequence. I can’t sit long in any position without great discomfort. I can’t run back to life as I once knew it without feeling like I’ve been hit by a car.
No, apart from a miracle my old reality in this life is over. I’ve got to accept it and respect it. My condition forces me to account for this nerve damaged body with every step. Praise God I’m not where I have been, but I’m far from where I used to be. I believe one of the toughest things to accept is our limitations. I’m thrilled to be back to living life. But, I must continue to recognize what is and is not good for my health. Maybe you do too!
“You say, “I am allowed to do anything”–but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”–but not everything is beneficial.”
(1 Corinthians 10:23)
