This is the sequel to part one. Part one of this Self Avenue article series is available by clicking here.
So after five years I finally recovered physically, mentally, and emotionally. It took a lot of determination and (especially) patience. Time went so slow for me as if I was in a slow motion video. I even used to say back then “someone has hit the pause button in my life.” Very true.
I got through the daily challenges, but I felt like I was in a fog all of those years. My memory was terrible. I had neurological problems which I had never heard of before, and a series of mini strokes. Was unable to drive for three years also.
That was hard. I really depended on my dad for shopping. So one day my life was sweet, cruising through life very happy, and then boom - a car accident. Life shattered. I am not writing this as a poor me article. This is to show people that there is a door opening at the end, and what a joy to be able to walk through it with confidence.
That is why I say to you all...never give up.
Imagine your life the way you want it to be. Don’t you feel that you deserve happiness regardless of your health?
It is so true that sometimes (and unfortunately) when we hit rock bottom, we then get a view of our life.
Why do we have to do that?
Should we not be making changes in our life to better it?
I know there were days and years I had no hope. I felt I was slipping away slowly, sinking deeper and deeper into a dark hole. Once I recognised the dark place I was in, and then I knew it was definitely time to jump out.
Therefore if you're in that hole now; take a leap forward and jump ahead to another place in your life. You must not let fear or anger in the way. You need to take control of your own actions.
We all have one life to live. Live it well, and create your life story with fun and happiness. It is your time now to create the life you have always dreamed of. Take a small step today and you won’t ever look back.
Nobody really wants to live an unhappy and miserable life. That is not why you are here. You are here to learn, to help, and to find your bliss in life.
In the end I can say now after all those years, that although I went through tragedy and trauma, I am still here, and I have learnt an important life lesson.
Help people find their happiness. Give my knowledge and experiences to others to learn from, and have the acceptance to gain a greater understanding of human nature.
