Finding the beauty of my life after a spinal cord injury

how i recover from my spinal cord injury

I had a car accident 11 years ago. I sustained a spinal cord injury level c5/6. In the beginning, I was confused and sad because my life had changed completely. I was happy to be alive and share more moments and time with my family. I didn’t really understand how my life was going to be after the accident- if I was going to finish college, if I was able to keep traveling, going out with friends, etc. However, some time passed by and I realized that I could do anything I wanted. The only thing that changed is that I’m using a wheelchair and need help for many things, but it’s not too bad if I think that way, otherwise I will be missing the wonderfulness, and beautifulness and how life has me blessed. I always think, I am the luckiest person for another life opportunity. Sometimes when you think, you could never do anything, move or even feel, yet you see little changes and your body gets better with rehab. That was one of the best things that could have ever happened because it gave me strength, motivation and mostly it gave me hope. I have to say I’m an architect, I finished my career in a wheelchair and not too long ago, I traveled out of the country, and started doing what I always love and like, painting. Now, I know that I’m able to do it by myself, with my own hands and I’m doing it better than I ever did, especially with my left hand, because my right hand isn’t strong enough, so when I see a finished painting I say to myself: “Oh my God, I did it”. It's not easy and takes time for me, but I do it with so much love and passion and that’s one of the most important things in the world. ALWAYS DO THINGS WITH LOVE AND HAPPINESS, GIVE THE BEST OF YOU AND DO IT WITH THE BEST YOU HAVE... no matter if you are in a wheelchair or not. Life can change completely in a good perspective and beautiful things will came. PAU FLORES
