The more I thought about this happy occasion we were celebrating it gave me hope. I realized that soon, when I do get better, I will go back out into this world with a fresh start. No negativity or resentment for the life that was lost, no anger toward people who abandoned me, and a new chance at life. I have evolved & changed so much already through this journey. I know exactly what I want from life, I discovered the person I am deep down, my priorities were made crystal clear & I discovered the people who loved me the most. When I am better I will be ready to conquer my world with a clean slate. The past will be the past. I will obviously never forget my life with Lyme, but it won't define me.
I think it's important to look at this moment in life as just that... A moment. Like a new baby being born into this world I will be a new me shedding the past & moving into the future. Brand new.
