An Ambivalent Anniversary

Anniversaries are funny things. They can offer a chance to reminisce about fond memories, or an opportunity to honour past events, the death or birth of a loved one.

Tomorrow marks a year since my accident. A year I very nearly didn’t have. A blessing, a second chance. A tough and difficult year.

It is with a mix of joy and trepidation that I will embark on a similar journey that I started last year but never finished. I am thankful that I can make the journey again, that I am able to return. Yet there is still some anxiety, some fear, some healing still to be done. The scars are not yet healed.

A year seems like a long time, and yet it passes so quickly. A year on, I am hopeful about what the next year will bring.
