Daily Reading: 1 Peter 1:7
These trials will show that your faith is genuine.
As you know a few weeks ago I was involved in a car accident. Someone ran into the rear of my car.
As soon as it happened I was gripped by fear and memories of the car accident that I was in, in 2004 came flooding back.
I remembered in 2004 how my life became trapped and I spiralled down into battling an eating disorder.
This time it is different, this time I am not letting it destroy me. This time I am stronger.
I have an amazing physio who treated me in my last accident. At the moment I am being treated for whiplash and I can’t go back to boxing for now.
This year one of my non negotiables was twice a week going to boxing. Which I was loving.
This has been interrupted first by having pneumonia in March. I had to rest and take it easy for about 6 weeks. Then the week before the car accident I went back to boxing. Then the car accident happened and now I have to wait to go back to boxing.
I have decided that I will not crumble, I will not give into the fear.
I am in pain, but I will not let that pain control me.
I feel stronger this time.
I am different from the girl I was in 2004, my life is full.
I have great friends, I am a writer, I am a blogger, I am a creative and I have an amazing job that I love.
I love the scripture- No weapon formed against me shall prosper, from Isaiah 54:17. I am standing on this promise.
I know that I will get back to boxing and I will get back to being able to dance and exercise. I just need to be patient and let my body heal properly. Oh and listen to my physio.
Watch this place.
