I’m still not at a hundred per cent today, almost five years later. I may never be, and that’s okay. I have terrible days and I have good days but what matters is that I’m trying. What matters is that you are trying.

Accepting, rebooting, replanning. Now what? From here, where ? It's all possible. The fall is real and flight is in sight. No single situation is powerful enough to define you. What you do when you wake up next is what it's all about. With more love and more courage take the next step. Not stagnant in the brilliance of now and not swimming in the knowledge of what's already happened. MOVE BABY MOVE!!!!!!! It will be magic.
