Remember when you told me I wouldn’t work again… I was scared of what you could do… but I kept trying and I kept working.
And you… you who told me that I’d never amount to much… Well to some people…I amount to their whole lives… so that’s a lot I think!
And to the ones who said I was hard hearted and would never be able to love… well you got it wrong… I am capable of more love than you can think. You were wrong for me… I was ok.
And to those who said I’d never walk again… I don’t walk. I run :)!
And those who said I won’t be able to….I did. I finished. I moved on. And I started all over again!
To those who said I can’t or I wouldn’t- I can and I did!
When you said I’d leave because it was too tough…I stayed . I learnt. I won.
When you kicked me…I got up and fought just a little bit harder.
When you hurt me…I didn’t waste time on tears… I moved on- stronger, harder and more determined.
And when I was laughed at… I laughed with you… and learnt how it felt and never did it to someone else.
For all those who called me back to tell me that they didn’t believe …I learnt to try and help you see… see the world thru my eyes.
To those who hated me- I tried to make you see me for who I am…. But if you still hate me… it’s your loss not mine. I’m a pretty awesome person (even if it’s just my husband and family who says so!)
I’ve lived. I’ve learnt. I’ve hurt. I’ve loved. I’ve fought. I’ve dreamt. I’ve had heart breaks and I’ve caused a few. But whenever a door shut… I found that if I took a moment there’d be another door wide open and waiting for me.
Thank you for teaching me that life is full of challenges….I look forward to spending the rest of mine jumping hurdles and winning the race…
You may never see me for who I am but you’ve allowed me to see how much strength , talent, love and beauty lies within me!
