“Vision: It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture.”
– Robert Collier
The Blessings of My Journey….
In today’s busy life it’s so easy to overlook all that is wonderful in life.
Somehow even the slightest negativity never fails to bring down my day. At the same time, I find myself never appreciating – really appreciating – even the most exciting news. I cannot recall a time this was not true, though, admittedly my brain has not had the opportunity to actively consume positivity the past year.
It’s a shame really – those countless times the pain has been so overwhelming, like a haze.
Looking back, it’s amazing to see how much life can change you…and how much power you have to create that change you desperately seek out. You see, a year ago I had just completed my first month of physical therapy and still was unable to walk on my own. It hasn’t even been a year since I could allow my foot to get wet after ten months of solid dryness.

Now begins the process of moving to Maryland to begin a new career in the political capital of the nation. To new adventures that afford us the opportunity to create more blessings!

“I guess that’s what saying good-bye is like–like jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice to do it. Once you’re in the air, there’s nothing you can do but let go.”
