It is coming up on my 1 year anniversary since my MS diagnosis. It sure does make me think how fast this past year has gone, how far I have come and where my lifestyle is today.
I wonder if Dr. Wahls knows how often she is thought of by so many of us warriors. There has not been a day her words have not impacted my choices, her name not passed my lips, her studies not been top of mind. I wonder if she knows how grateful we all are for her work and bringing us all back to the middle. Understanding the importance of whole real food in our life. How far off we became as a society and what we need to do to transform this world.
I am so thankful to be in the space I am, to be living the life I am and looking forward to what lies ahead fo me. I used to tell my dad I was meant to do something great in this world….he would ask if I was going to be a famous actress or movie star…I always answered no. I did not know then what I meant and I do not know now, but I still have this overwhelming inner feeling that propels me to keep going, to keep striving. I feel closer today to my purpose.
As my year anniversay closes in on me I feel the gravity of what I have accomplished this year, the hurdles I have overcome, the joy I have found and the energy I have cultivated. I am inspired by what I see in the world around me and the transformation happening. I am encouraged to keep going and to keep spreading the word of food as medicine.
My life is full. I do not know where I am going……will I ever actually arrive? Im not sure I want to. The excitement of the journey is the best part.
