I never really fully opened up about what got me to the place of peace, and to be the person that I am today, so throughout the next few weeks, I am going to share a few stories on the blog to show you just that.
It was September 10, 2012; I had a cluster of seizures that were totally out of the ordinary. I took my meds as I usually do, spent some time in front of the computer, talked on the phone with a friend, and then BOOM! The earth shook. I had a seizure or two or three of all seizures. I woke up not knowing where I was, all I knew was that I had to get to the hospital.
After spending a week in the hospital hooked up to EEG monitors, my doctors came to the conclusion that this cluster of seizures was caused by excessive stress. This would also lead to my decision to having surgery that would potentially be life changing. Two years later on February 5th, 2013 I was brought into the operating room for the first of two brain surgeries. On February 23rd, I left the hospital not knowing what to expect, but I was hopeful! Today, almost a year later, I am not seizure free, but I have more movement of my left arm, and better control of my seizures. The reason for this is all because I remained hopeful throughout the process. Once we lose hope, we start to see our world close in, but if we remain hopeful our world will expand.
Hope opens our eyes to new worlds; it allows us to see what we once thought would be impossible. By staying hopeful, and allowing that hope to grow in your heart, a new sense of peace and gratitude for the life that you are are living will flourish, and propel you forward to new dreams, and new goals.
Keep on keeping on,
