The worth of difficulty
It takes a lot to be able to see one's growth within the time span of a single month. I used to be able to see consistent and relevant growth around the end of every year. Then I had my accident, a mountain bike spill on a jump track that left me with a broken neck and uncertainty for the future. With that and certainty came a new battle, I wasn't trying to aim for perfection both physically and mentally and I wasn't trying to conform to the most widely accepted definition of success. When the world seems bleak, the smallest success, picking something up without dropping it, moving in an environment on your own, any sort of action that brings independence is real success! And with everyday struggle, there is a sort of constant self worth bubbling to the surface past all of the hardship and the self-doubt. Truly, I'm starting to see a new beginning with new adventures for the future. And I'm excited to be able to share this with so many whom I love!
