Yesterday, marked nine years since my life took a drastic detour. I tried to make the day as normal as possible, but even with my compromised memory, I still can't forget it. Many people consider my greatest trait to be a positive attitude, but even with that, I still have my days. If you would allow me to vent, just for this one day, I'd like for those reading this blog to put yourself in my shoes . . .
Imagine - being a seventeen year old high school student with your whole life ahead of you.
Imagine - running, performing back handsprings, cartwheels, etc.
Imagine - after years of training, earning your independence such as driving, a job, etc.
Imagine - having a close knit group of friends to share your ups and downs with.
Imagine - planning for college to study for your career choice.
Imagine - hoping for that big church wedding with the man of your dreams and starting a family with him.
Now imagine losing it all in a split second!
No college, no driving, no independence, no longer in the same place as your friends, no becoming a school teacher, no becoming a wife and mother, no cartwheels (being lucky to be able to stay upright!), no roller coasters for fear of the bullet becoming dislodged in your brain, sitting around waiting for friends to call, depending on others to take you places. I could go on and on and on, but I think you get the gist!
Thank you for allowing me to rant! Now, I'll go back to my happy, positive self!
