Adaptation


"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change." ~Charles Darwin

Well, it certainly is good news that brother Darwin asserts that it is the most adaptable that survives, not merely the strongest nor the most intelligent! My best friends will describe me as many things (I am human, after all), and strong and intelligent are always part of that equation. Fortunately. And while the past several months since my eye surgery have been an interesting challenge due to the &^%$ headaches, I'm proud to state that I am definitely adapting!

What has helped me the most has been finding inspiration anywhere I can be it in nature, literature, movies, music, and people. Love is also a large factor. What I love, I love passionately. Always have. And I'm proud to have wonderful people in my life whom I love and love me, too.

And while these *&^% headaches used to scare me, I'm not frightened anymore. I know I am loved, and through my friends' eyes I have learned to see my own strength, intelligence, and adaptability. When the pain gets really bad, it's okay to feel it (even if it makes me cry), because it reminds me that I can see again. And that's the most amazing thing. Ever! There's so much beauty in this world, I'm eternally grateful to see it. A million thanks Dr. Stephen D. McLeod of UCSF...

So tell me, what do you love passionately? What can make you adapt and push through any obstacle in your path?

Tell me...
