I’m gonna keep dreaming, even if I’m in a wheelchair. I’m 23! I have so much life left, a life that can be full! Why would I let an unfortunate tragedy rule over me for the rest my life? Yeah, what happened to me sucks A LOT but it’s not worth sitting sorrowful and reminiscing of the good times when I could walk. That would make me miserable and I don’t want that for my life. What negativity have you been holding onto? Do you want to be miserable for the rest of your life? I’ve already been down the road of regret and it led me to greater regret, remorse, and shame. As time ticks, that road gets long and lonely, darker by every step. You forget who you are and the only thing you can remember is who you used to be. You sit through each day withering away, becoming a waste. BUT you can stop it now and change your life. You have a purpose. Let God change your life. God met me on that road, turned me around, and pointed me back to my passion but if it wasn’t for him I don’t know where I would be. Because He fought for me, that is why I am going to dream. I am going to make my life count for Him, I’m not going to wither away.
I made a list of life goals. No, not a bucket list, which I do want to make one day, but a list I feel has deeper value. It’s not a list of destinations or thrill seeking attractions, it’s a list of goals that could change the trajectory of my life. If it is the end of my life and certain things aren’t in my destiny than I won’t be upset, rather, I will be proud that I dared to dream.
If you are feeling down, I hope this inspires you to make a life goal list for yourself!
I want to inspire
I want to live in my own house independently
I want to travel to new places
I want to graduate college
I want a family
I want to move my hands again independently
I want to walk again independently
