I Can't Run So I Will Fly Part One
By Michelle R Kidwell Power In The Pen

Rated "PG" by the Author.

I know now that I may not have an entire lifetime to make those dreams come true , that does not mean I am going to act as if I am dying tomorrow. It simply means I am going to work harder, and dream bigger.

I am here to make something clear.

I am in a chair yes, but I am not depressed.  I am not asking why me.  I am slimply living my life.

I am dreaming my dreams.

So many people think that once someone is hurt like I was and ends up in a wheelchair that automatically means they are going to be depressed that their life is going to be over.  But that's not true .

I am young still only twenty.  I am not ready to go on acting as if my life is over.

It was less than a year ago that my life was forever changed, but not all change is bad.  Sometimes change wakes you up to a new realization.  It certainly did me.  I came to the realization that if I couldn't run I would fly. 

I did not let my dreams diminish instead I came to the relization that life is not always as long as we expect it to be, time does go by fast, and we should live our lives, not sit around feeling sorry for ourselves.  Sitting down doesn't mean you can't dream, you can't achieve your goals.

I know now that I may not have an entire lifetime to make thsose dreams come true , that does not mean I am going to act as if I am dying tomorrow.  It simply means I am going to work harder, and dream bigger.

I may not run, but I am going to fly.

And I am flying.  Soaring thorough this thing called life, and doing so, because my Faith allows me to do so.

To Be Continued
