Just like a sailboat, we have to keep moving to reach our goals. Living with an Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury and Chiari Malformation makes daily life more challenging, but each step taken makes reaching my goal of walking without assistive devices closer.
I remember the day the doctor told me, “sorry, but get used to the wheelchair. This is your new normal.” Yet, I knew deep down that this was incorrect. Well, my faith and stubbornness would not let me settle for what I was told. Through prayer and hard work, I have made some headway.
Never give up on yourself! Regardless of what you are facing, God is there to carry you through. It often takes perseverance, but the outcome is amazing.
