It has been almost ten days since I have posted anything on this little ol' blog. Many things have factored into that. My parents came for a visit and we were supposed to leave on a much anticipated trip to Napa Valley but some things happened not as planned. The trip was cancelled and I also had to deal with a court case that has been hanging over my head for quite some time now.
If you don't know me well, you probably have no idea what I am talking about. February 3rd will be two years to the day that I was struck by a car while walking our lovely pooch Haiku in Los Angeles when we lived there. I can't even go into details enough as to how this situation has changed my life. It was one of the most scary situations to be involved in and made me realize even more that pedestrians don't have the right of way, even if they are supposed to. People are in too much of a hurry these days to pay attention to other humans. It is a sad, sad thing but I see it even more clearly after this horrible situation.
I am trying to keep a positive mind with the outcome but after almost two years this has become a little bit harder to stomach. I have a much dreaded trial coming up on December 1st that could last up to ten days. As of right now, I really just want to try to focus on the truth. My hope is that this whole thing will make me stronger and learn that the truth does truly prevail. I am too much of a realist to believe that this happens every time though. I do so much hope that this happens in my case.
I have never, in the several months of writing this blog ever been so upfront and personal. I think that is where I am at right now. A little wilted, tired, and vulnerable. In my first post ever on this blog I said that this blog would be totally me if I allow it so here I am. My resilience will pull me through, I know it. xoxo. Anna
