Bethany

Bethany

On September 7th, 2010 I was a normal 25 year old, crazy in love with her boyfriend, working two jobs and going to school full-time. All that changed drastically in the blink of an eye when my boyfriend he ran into the back of a semi pulling off the road. I suffered a severe brain injury, shattered my C2 vertebra and dislocated my C3-5. People always tell me, "I don't know how you can be so strong. I could never do that with your positive attitude!" And I used to think I didn't have any other choice BUT to be strong. Now I realize that's not the case, because I CHOSE to stop comparing my life to others', I CHOSE to stop dwelling on the "old me," I CHOSE and continue to choose to be thankful for every good thing that comes my way and show gratitude for it!

I still can't walk and there's not a whole lot I can do by myself, but I always remind myself that not only could it have been so much worse, there are millions of people in the world who have a much harder life and I am still so incredibly blessed.

I live in northwest Arkansas.
