It’s been five months since I suffered a severe panic attack that led into a month-long anxiety attack leaving me to essentially re-learn the confidence to:
Eat, Leave the house, drive, walk into a crowd, use an elevator, fly again, walk again and run again.
I was like a new born baby. I felt my identity stripped right from underneath me. IT. WAS. AWFUL. I woke up in fear. I went to bed in fear.
For a split second I asked “Why are you doing this to me?!?? What have I done?” And in the next breath I knew.
“You have been given this mountain to show others it can be moved.”
Thanks to the support group of friends & family I have, my faith, my health, natural resources, a trusted women’s doctor & MY GRIT:
I not only learned to walk again…but I am RUNNING again.
So, when you FEEL me breathe confidence into you,
When you see me post positively & fearlessly,
When I accomplish goals,
When I RUN instead of walk,
When I tattoo FREEDOM on my body…
I FOUGHT for that! It’s not just some BS I think I’m supposed to post to get LIKES. I’m LIVING IT.
I won’t be the person that just posts pretty pictures (although you’ll see a lot of them from me!) you’re going to see the real, the raw, the peaks and the valleys. And I’m going to show you, your mountains CAN be moved.
So, this morning’s five-mile run, while not my fastest ever, but my fastest since retraining myself to run again, is dedicated to all of YOU who are fighting every day for the life you deserve!
I may not know a lot, but one thing I do know is if I can, you can.
P.S. – Do not go into the St Louis arch if you are claustrophobic
