About 13 weeks ago I suffered a stroke… my husband, who was unexpectedly and luckily home when it happened, thru a series of good decision making on his part, is the reason I am alive today.
So, bear with me, it’s messy times over here… because what I lost were my stories, my voice and a certain wind from my sails.
The aftermath has left me slowly rebuilding… my relationships, my words and everything that is somehow me. As I work through this time of my life, therapies and personal goal setting are paramount.
They are all I focus on.
I want my life back. I want ME back. And I will get there. But here’s the thing, I am working towards so much more. I’m learning how to count again. I am learning what balance feels like. I’m learning how to eat properly (without chopsticks, of course)... all of the things that came automatically before.
So, I feel that the ME that it is in-creation, is that of a much better, more intuitive and wiser me… so watch this space.
And if it all feels like too much… this is simple… I pretend that I’m somewhere tranquil, like on this beach perhaps, laying in the sunshine, with Johan. 💫 More on the blog....click link in bio ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

For those who don’t know, My mother in law had a very bad accident. On May 7 2019 Sheila had a stroke while driving and flipped her car into a ravine full of water. She was underwater for 15-20 minutes before first responders were able to resuscitate her. While in the ICU she was placed into a medically induced coma, suffered two cardiac arrests, and a few mini strokes. She has left ICU but will remain in the South Health building. The accident has left her blind in her left eye, and minimum vision in her right. She has lost the ability to walk, as well as many other functions we use in our day to day life. Her coworkers have started a GoFundMe to help aid in the cost of various items that will be required to live comfortably. I have attached the link in bio for those who are willing to donate, or for those are able to re share to get the word out. Thank you all so much ❤️ #gofundme#yyc#strokerecovery#southhealthcampus#roadtorecovery
