recovertofit Going stir crazy - not so patiently waaaiting to go to the airport and start my trip back home !! ️🌎 Recently I had a conversation where I was asked what I would do if I could choose anything - travel the world - was an automatic response. Sitting here now, if I could choose wings instead of these legs I think that would be a quick choice too. My legs were never my favorite body part, chicken legs as they were called growing up were always way too long pure bone and just meant I was taller than every other thirteen year old. Once I hit 16 and had my accident only a couple weeks later, my body filled out quickly. New hormones mixed with a lack of exercise for someone that's been an athlete their entire life is no joke. I didn't care about the length anymore because the width was absurd. I totally felt like Texas when I sat down. I hated what I saw and definitely struggled with the feeling of being worthless but I have a new view on life these days.

Seems we always want more than we have or something we don't. I'm so grateful and blessed to have people that mean so much to me; never mind the fact I have the ability to go back to the place I call home and spend time with them. Today I said I want wings instead of legs which is true -if I had a superpower- I would choose to be able to fly. I wouldn't have to wait for this connection flight back to #NewYork and I could go anywhere any time I pleased BUT in reality I wouldn't trade these legs for the world. They have held me up through every battle and every tunnel I questioned I would see the light in. I wouldn't change them for the world because I'm to busy changing them for me. After 25 years of hating on them I'm making it a priority to sculpt my legs into something I'm proud of. I don't need a superpower because I was already given a super power in the form of a body and this thing we call life. Like your body life is what we make it, you're in control so what do you want ?
