I'm going to post every day this week following up to the day when I think I had the stroke. I keep trying to play through my head exactly what happened the week before or week of my stroke. Chopra tells us to try and picture where we were a year prior and what has changed what has remained the same. I have mentioned this before and I love doing it because it really helps me move forward and continue to change and evolve into a more aware person.

Grateful I can still walk across a bridge.
Last year around this time, I know I was worried about work and overwhelmed with everything going on in my life. It was the weekend so I know I was pretty active in helping folks down the stairs on the train with strollers, something I can sadly not do anymore. Why I decided to do it, I don't know! Anyway, I was pretty down about being so busy and was rushing nonstop from job, to writing, to socializing and not getting enough sleep.

Lesson Learned
This year I am not letting work run my life. I'm taking time to breathe. I am learning to say no. I am taking better care of myself. I sleep more, which makes my dog happy.
I'm grateful for being able to type without error.

Small victories.


  1. Can you believe it's been a year?! Congrats to a more BETTER you! My "stoke-a-versary" was a very emotional day. Lots going through my mind that day as I worked through it (literally). Every year will get easier though :) I submitted my story to a local photographer in hopes of getting more people aware of stroke awareness and then it can happen to anyone.

  2. Thanks! Looking forward to celebrating another year of being well. Yes! Awareness is power. Even if you're able to touch one person, it's all worth it. Good luck!
