It seems like life is like that commerical which coined the phrase, “Life comes at you fast”. Life does change in an instant. From the day you were born. When you think about it, its a bit profound. One second you were still a fetus in the womb of your mother and then a second later you are officially ALIVE! Amazing and miraculous the way life works. Today I felt heavily about quick life is and how surreal occurrences can be. Talking with a friend who I met after the accident she encouraged me and really pointed out how my life is not normal. How its not everyday you met someone studying engineering who had forgotten all of her math. Its not average to see someone who has stepped forward even if she still struggles with headaches and head pain and remembers words, people and events. She smiles and she perserveres. Ok so my friend didn’t say all of that but that was the point she seemed to point out to me. I hope this all doesn’t sound egotistical, as I try to stay humble because I know that this point in my life that I am at has not been an easy climb. It’s taken so many days of hardship, working through tears, crying myself to sleep, or trying to distract myself from the agonizing pain my brain is feeling. Its HAS NOT BEEN EASY! I may have a tendency to make it seem that way because I don’t like to complain. I learned from the accident, as I was going through therapies and tons of doctors appointments that my life may be a struggle and be difficult but its not the worst thing. I have met people with Traumatic Brain Injuries who struggle to think or speak on their own, or don’t act their age. I have met people who have been through so many surgeries since being born. I have met people that struggle to move around when they wake up in the morning. I am so blessed with the healing G-d has blessed me with. All I know about my life, G-d has led me to be. I don’t know how to answer the question about how my face looks so beautiful (or at least I think so) and yet it had been broken and swollen for almost two years. I don’t know how to tell you that your face will heal other than by the grace of G-d. I don’t know how to tell you that you can learn math after struggling and forgetting ALL of it. All I know is G-d in my life has and continues to lead me in the path which I am walking. He has been there every step of the way, good days and bad. He is the reason I am here, he save me. He has helped me to learn my through patience with my cognitive therapist and my many professors and tutors. He has shown me that I have to do my part in order for him to do his. Life is wonderful and amazing and so blessed but sometimes for me it can start to feel surreal. It must be a divine occurrence as I acknowledge G-d’s almighty power. MIRACLES HAPPEN.
