I received my leg on August 12th. Last 7 weeks have been filled with joy, turbulence, great workouts, bad days, good days, and everything in between... Buy hey I'm shooting hoops :-)
I'm walking, cycling, driving, working out at the gym (rowing machine, elliptical machine, treadmill machine - I can do things I wasn't able to since my injury).
I'm filled with gratitude and owe of where I am and what I went through to get here. Divine guidance, buckets of love and support, amazing professionals, endless motivation, proper nutrition and deep personal work have all came together in a beautiful way.
I feel as if all pieces of the puzzle (at least most of it...) came together. I did my best to prepare: 1000 hours of physiotherapy, hundreds of hours of research, hundreds of books, intense study of human biology and chemistry, Lifelong study and experimentation with nutrition and so much more have allowed me to get to where I'm now.
I knew from the beginning that this is not a race to get from point A to B. this is a journey, a journey of life, tragedy, love, success and failure. In every thing that happens to us there's a lesson to learn. How open are we to first of all see it and then follow it is very personal to each of us.
I saw my situation as a gift (a painful one but still a gift). It allowed me to venture and dive into worlds I would have probably chosen to stay away from but this opportunity turned out as one of the greatest gifts I could have ever received.
How we deal with change and re-position ourselves to deal with it has been my biggest lesson. The value of patience, how to gracefully work with the rhythm of life and not go against it have given me a new perspective on life.
For all that and so much more I'm eternally grateful and now it's my time to go out there and share my story and message with the world.It's time to give back.
How all of this will unfold? I have no idea. But if it is meant to be, it will reveal itself with time.
Stay tuned for new developments.
Your ever well-wisher
