So Close To Succeeding

Standard

Have you ever had those days where you are moving in the direction of your goal when suddenly your whole world turns to chaos?

My last post I had decided that I committed myself to achieving my goal, to keep pushing myself to do what I have to, and to inspire others to see that anything is possible. I was happy, kept my nose down and stayed focused on where I was going. Then while blogging I sprained/strained my back for 3 days I could barely walk. Side note coming:

Thank you to Dr Garcia (South Miami Location) and Dr Amar (Homestead Location) with the help of the staff at Affiliated Health Care Centers I feel much better and was able to run through the terminal of Miami International Airport just 3 weeks after the incident. I’m still far from 100% but I can move without much pain! Thank you.

It was 2 weeks after my incident (and 2 swim meets later) that I got on the phone with one of my mentors. He was wondering why I hadn’t posted anything. I told him about my back, not being able to move, and just being afraid of going onto my computer as I kept thinking that I would hurt myself again… silly me.  He said something that rang true to me “I believe that when we are close to what we want the Universe throws a curve ball just to see our persistence and dedication.” When he said that a part of me smiled and I KNEW that is exactly what has happened.

It has been a few weeks since I last posted and a part of me wants to use this as an excuse to stop, but a bigger part of me knows that I am close and I am determined to succeed while leading others to have the courage to take the first step.
