Lucky and Blessed

I've felt blessed since my eyes opened, and in my recovery blog. http://www.toeupto10k.blogspot.com/, each week, I write about an inspirational person. They are not hard to find. There are lots of inspirational people around in many different ways - its just that I focus on those who have recovered from spinal cord and brain injuries.

Sometimes I can't help but think about those who did not survive, and feel sad, and lucky at the same time. And the same goes for those who had to have limbs amputated for survival - and with those people, who have recovered, I get extra inspiration. 

In a Christmas Carol, Ebenezer the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, provided the trigger for Scrooge to change his life.  I'm not physically 100% yet, but meningitis and the resulting transverse mylenitis have caused me to make adjustments physically and socially, but it also provided me the trigger to start a new chapter - doing what I've always wanted to do for a living - that is to write  - and hopefully, alos provide inspiration to people who also are recovering from spinal cord injury.
