Life is a marathon…

There are times when I realize that my Dystonia is my sign to calm down, to take challenges as they come and to let life be.  I always remember Dr.T has always said please don’t stress out, when you stress it puts too much stress on your system and takes everything a moment to recalibrate.  Sometimes I forget I am a robot, sometimes I let life get in the way without trusting.  Trusting that everything will be okay. I am a product of trust.  It took many years to convince myself to have DBS.  I was afraid.  I was afraid of being in a wheelchair, I was afraid of being paralyzed.  It took almost 2 years to take the leap.  To realize that my alternative was going to be living in a wheelchair anyway.  The 2 years of torment, fighting having a surgery that was life changing could be my biggest regret or my biggest gift.  DBS has changed my life everyday, DBS has given me the gift to run, to raise awareness and the reason to challenge myself to new heights daily.  If you are reading this today, go for a run, go for a long walk, don’t talk your life for granted,  Enjoy each moment!
