It is possible to give up on your life without letting anyone know.
It was a morning like any other morning, I was walking down the steps, preparing to leave for work.
I got to the 3rd step from the bottom and I don't really know how I tripped, but I felt myself starting to go forward. My 6-year old grandson was walking beside me and was between me and the railing. I knew I could not grab for the railing for fear of knocking over my grandson.
As I started to fall forward, I remember thinking, "what the hell, I am so tired of living my day to day worries and struggles. What if I just let go and end it all right here and now? What if I just allow myself to be smashed against the ceramic tile and end all my troubles right here and now?"
But, as I started to fall forward, self-preservation kicked in and thwarted my plans to "give up!"
I fell and broke both ankle bones in my left leg. I was rewarded with a metal plate and several screws in my ankle and it took me 4 months in a wheelchair 2 surgeries and 3 years to walk again. Every day of those 3 years I kept asking myself, "what is the lesson in all of this?" There were days that I thought I would not be able to bear the pain. There were days when I thought I would never walk again without assistance. I would be struggle to my knees to crawl up even one step because I was unable to make the climb.
What was my lesson in all of this? I learned that asking for help is not easy. I learned that my health is a gift to be treasured. I learned to never take a simple thing, like walking, for granted. But most of all, I learned that I am stronger than I ever gave myself credit for.
The amount of successes that I have created in my life since that fall have surpassed anything I could have imagined for myself and I now understand that the Universe had big plans for me.
