It is funny when you think about how your life was X time ago.
An exact year ago, as a lot of you know, I was literally living in a hospital by my friend’s bed. She was there over two months and she is still not the same.
A week after our flight from Zambia to Barcelona for Christmas, with no apparent reason, she stopped feeling anything from her hips down and was on a wheel chair.
An spine injury caused by still no idea what. An immune system disease or a disease from a tick bite from Africa.
Whatever it was it definitely stoped our lives. Well, of course we kept living, but it felt like a dream, like something that was not really happening, something we were going to wake up from.
Often I receive messages about how lucky I am of living the life people guess I live. A perfect life with no problems. I used to get annoyed, as I would not wish to anyone the year we had. Frustration, sadness and fear appeared on my mind to stay.
It was not about life stoping, it was about being conscious of the now and treasure it anyway. That was the struggle.
Funny enough too, I feel stronger now, I feel I am another person than the one a year ago. More than ever, I really try to treasure the present, not the past, not the future. The now.
We all struggle, no one has a perfect life, let’s all be kind with each other.
PS. This sunset on the Arctic has a special place in my heart. I think it was one of the first times I got myself thinking in a whole year how gorgeous this moment was and how lucky I really was.
Love to you 🧡
