My Gorgeous Godchild Olivia Is Up, UP… & Walking Away!
While suuuper clever (alright fine! I admit, I may be slightly biased…), this little human’s brain was but a blank canvas only a few months ago. Not to mention the fact that, as a baby, she doesn’t even have proper kneecaps just yet. Can you believe she’s up and away?
If you’re learning to walk or re-walk (as I once did), and/or on any other journey - whether it be of healing & recovery or a more simple one that life has thrown at you… Let little Livie be your inspiration! If she can do it, you can too!
Wash yourself clean. Allow yourself to be reborn! Step-by-step is the perfect way to learn. Fluency comes in time for everything. Your inner strength can move mountains. Tap into that (along with some serious patience!) and slowly but surely - you’ll get it!
Want to know a secret? It took approximately a year to get me walking again after my accident. Longer if you count stairs. Even longer if you count the fact that I only recently ditched the cane. Alright then, so I’ll admit… it’s taken almost 3 years for me to properly learn how to walk again.
I’ll try to dig up some footage of the intense physical therapy I went through. Pain, pools, panic. It’s all in there. Nothing pretty about it though. Apart from the peace that I feel now. (So many ‘p’ words! I know! This is like some sort of incredibly depressing Sesame Street segment…)
At the end of the day though (and I know how frustrating it is to hear this sometimes! bear with me!) we CAN walk. And through our physical lessons, we learn countless emotional ones as well. As our bodies grow stronger, so will we.
Amaze yourself. xx
