Never been afraid to be myself, after all, I am unicorn…

It is not all positives in my life that made me positive. It’s certainly a lot of negatives.
When I was 12: I broke the L4 and L5 in a horse riding accident.
When I was 13: I had exploratory spinal surgery that uncovered a birth defect where my spine was never connected to my sacrum and I had spondylothesis in four vertebrates.
When I was 18: I hairline fractured my right tibia. And I fall into the depressing disorder of bulimia.
When I was 19: I ruptured the brevis and longus tendons in my right foot.
When I was 20: shortly after rupturing my tendons, the same foot stress fractures in the first and second metatarsal.
I have been in wheel chairs, full back braces, therapists, physical therapists, doctors, chiropractors. I have taken heavy medications, involuntary and voluntary time off, and although I find myself hurting in confusion and frustration I have also found that through all the darkness there shines a light. And it’s me.
I am my own beacon and my own creation and I will never let that fade. I can never let that cease. I shine bright due to my darkness and therefore I do not regret the pain. I appreciate all it has taught me and given me. Don’t look at all the negatives in your life as a negative. Because they certainly don’t have to always be that to you. Embrace. Endure. Overcome.
