Resilience

30 years ago today I came into the world.

I nearly died in my first two weeks.

Later on, I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Albeit mild, the prenatal damage to my brain was enough to nearly paralyze an entire side of my body.

But life finds a way. One of my older brothers worked with me to teach me how to walk. A doctor recommended Tae Kwon Do to improve balance and coordination. My brain slowly rewired itself.

And now, in 2014, I’ve biked 3,000 miles already this year.

Never give up.

    That’s about 15 miles a day of biking, not too shabby! Hope you took the day off on your birthday, though. Cheers.
