Halfway There

I feel like I've wrapped my head around all the changes, challenges and heartbreak of this journey. I'm no longer mourning what happened and who I was/planned to be. I love who I am now, I appreciate and see the need for all the changes I've come through, people can no longer tell I'm a stroke survivor until I tell them; I can now just put my head down and work on my future.  Look out world I'm coming for you, I'm halfway there!

I'm sorry it didn't work out. I'm sorry for how it ended. There are things I can't take back, this is the only event that I would go back and do differently... It would come to the same end though, so I'm not sure what good that'd do. I'll be the bad guy, but I still know that this is for the best; for the both of us...I hope you'll be able to see it one day.

I must admit I'm still feelin' pretty gangsta; how many people do you actually know that have gone on vacation and just decided to stay? Not go back home settle your affairs, say proper and deserved goodbyes; just stayed. Found an apartment, opened a bank account, got a state I.D., even a treasured library card without using their return ticket; but not at all premeditated. Simply going to surprise a buddy on his birthday with a 2 week visit. It's the first deliberately, unapologetically, selfish thing I think I've ever done (as an adult). It's amazing because I also really believe that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be. Follow your heart and tell your mind to stay in the moment, and always listen to your gut.

There is no time limit

Please don't let well meaning medical professionals tell you it's too late to get anymore progress. Just because it's what the books say, or because they haven't seen it before DOES NOT make it impossible.
