Just When I Stopped Looking I Saw Just How Far I'd Come In This Life
**This can sort of be an outfit post, Linds!**
Thank you for all of your positive comments on my last post. I am truly proud of myself for learning lessons at 24 years old that some NEVER learn in three lifetimes. This illness took from me what I thought I needed to survive and it gave to me what I need to LIVE. I no longer hide behind an identity that I thought I had... an athlete, a runner. Many people move from one label to another... a daughter, to a student, to an athlete, to a professional, to a mother, to a grandmother... I know who I am in relation to the onenness of us all, to the greater good. As you know, when I lost my identity as a runner and an athlete, the proverbial shit hit the fan, but now, my life has become more than just that. Thank you, RSD, for giving me this gift.
