It's Been A Slow But Great Year!
It's almost been almost 2 years now since I joined WA and I am super proud that I made this move. I remember laying in bed recovering from spinal surgery, wondering what I am going to do with my life, and focusing on a speedy recovery. On the last week of April 2018, it was just a regular morning, I woke up and prepared for work. I had this routine of waking up around 3 or 4am. I would workout, pray and do some reading before having breakfast and be out the door by 8am to do some Postmates deliveries, and on this day, the unthinkable happened. I collided with another cyclist on the Queensborough bridge and I don't remember exactly how I landed but I know I hit my back on something. I thought I was fine at first, I was just waiting to get my breath back so I can stand up. After the crowd around me asked me if I was okay I said yeah I think I am fine, but when I tried to stand up man, the pain was just too much. They asked if I felt any numbness on my legs and I said no which was a good sign. Getting on the ambulance was a bitch! I screamed, and the ride to the hospital was painful because of the bumps on the road. I was being strong, I had so much faith and knew in my heart I will be okay and be the same person I was before my injuries, and much stronger. My back was not the only think broken, I also had 3 fractured ribs and a collapsed lung. I remember the night before my surgery I prayed and cried, and told God to please protect me, that I have been defeated and I need his help now more than ever. Two weeks after surgery I started light exercise even though I was instructed not to exercsie or do anything besides walk until after 6 weeks. I couldn't wait that long, after 3 weeks I started doing pushups, light weights, after a month I was back on my bike doing food deliveries. After 2 months I started running and working on my boxing again. My family was worried, but I wanted to prove everyone wrong. I didn't like hearing that my life wouldn't be the same. I knew I would be fine, and an even better and stronger human being. I had to be positive and I was so determined and driven focusing on full recovery, work, and building an online business. I had many up and down moments but I'm here now posting money generating content finally. I posted my second affiliate post yesterday, and I also run a courier service to earn more income. I love the bike messenger lifestyle and I am glad that I can make money riding around New York City on my fixed gear bike. No day is the same, and it doesn't feel like work. It all started with a bike and a dream.
That's my blog post for today! Wishing everyone a great day and lot's of success and happiness both financial and in health.
