Two years ago today I changed my life forever- shattering my C1 vertebrae in two places. I was told a lot of things, by a lot of great doctors. Thankfully due to my stubbornness and a great deal of support from the people Upstairs, as well as love from friends and family- I recovered beyond what thought possible. During the “halo time” I had periods where I struggled, and I had periods where I didn’t let it stop me from living my life. In the time since I’ve hiked 95 miles in Patagonia, conquered my developed fear of waves at the beach, learned to sail my 38’ Beneteau, gotten in better shape than before the injury, and even learned some pretty sweet yoga moves. The moral of my long winded spiel is that nothing is impossible. Create the life you want to live, and make it happen.
