    Happy Anniversary Kristy! I, for one, am very glad that you hesitated for that split second, and that I’ve had the awesome opportunity to get to know you. And normal? Who wants normal? (What is normal, anyway? Being someone you’re not?)

    One step at a time, even before you could take steps, you reforged your body, your identity, and your life. Hats off to you, Kristy. That’s what I call growing your life BIG. Congratulations on a triumphant anniversary!

      Thanks, Shelly. It’s like you said on your website. It’s all about changing. I had a choice to either accept things as they were, or make up my mind that I wasn’t settling for anything less than what I had before the accident. When I told a nurse I was aiming for a complete recovery, she told me she thought I’d maybe get about 70% back to normal. So I said I guessed I’d just have to shoot for 130% then, because I wasn’t settling for less than 100%. I had a choice, accept what some of the people who were treating me said, or not.

      So many people don’t realize that it’s what goes on inside their heads that determines the direction of their lives. And that they can’t just sit back and accept all the negativity that comes at them, often from respected, educated individuals. LOL….they need to develop their stubbornness and rebelliousness. I can tell you from experience, they make all the difference in the world! 🙂

    Thank you very much, Breeana. I can’t tell you how glad I am to have gotten to know you, too. One, because you’re a great person and fantastic author, and two…because I really do believe I came within a split second of dying that day…and am very glad I didn’t! 🙂

    Who wants normal? Not me! I know some normal people…and I definitely enjoy life a lot more than they do!
