This year on the three year anniversary of the tragic day, my life took a leap forward. This time, I was fast asleep on a high speed train traveling to Prague in the Czech Republic from Germany. When I awoke, I was in a foreign place with a language I could not understand and people that sometimes looked rather angry. For the first time since the accident I briefly thought about the day and the pain but instead of mopping around I was doing something with my life. I was moving forward, literally. When we (I was on a study abroad trip) got to Prague, we walked to our hotel. I walked! We wondered all over the city and saw such beautiful sights. In the evening, I was even given the opportunity to pick where our group would eat. It was no longer the accident day it was the day the accident happened but also the day I went to Prague. It felt like I was letting go of the past and allowing myself to move onwards. To do great things and live my purpose. Change happens, if you let it.
