“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” -2 Timothy 4:7
The race is finally over!
After this long, five year journey with CRPS, it is now coming to a close. How freeing it is to be able to break away from these shackles and sprint to the finish line unhindered and full of new life! Though, yes, it was hell, I learned a lot during that time and now enter this new chapter with more appreciation for the little things in life that we often take for granted, like actually taking the time to enjoy the present, knowing that the past is past and the future is in our Heavenly Father’s hands.
I feel stronger, more energized than I have ever been, like I could leap the tallest building, though that may be a little too ambitious at the moment, hahaha!
I know I am now ready to embrace this next chapter of my life as I make preparations for working at the clinic as a therapist. It is such a blessing for me to now be part of the very process that gave me hope and got me back on my feet.
I want to take this opportunity to again thank you all so much for your encouragement and support. I could not have done this God through all of you coming alongside me. You came into my life at the exact moment I needed you and helped bring me to where I am now. Thank you.
Dylan Ames, one of the many fellow warriors out here at the clinic, wrote this incredible poem that really speaks to how I feel as I come to the end of this ten week journey. I wanted to share it with all of you.
Never Going Back
by Dylan Ames
“Amongst the trials and tribulations
Blossoms opportunity for rebirth
That seems so far away, yet now inches closer.
Diving into the unknown change is daunting
Deeper, farther than I have ever been
I know I am never going back.”
