<p>I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season~</p>

<p>It has been almost 3 months since I moved to Tokyo and time has just flown by.  Things are very slowly starting to settle down, but weโ€™ve still got a little ways to go.  Although Iโ€™m not sure what the New Year holds, Iโ€™m excited to take on whatever comes my way.  </p>

<p>While there is not a day that goes by that I am filled with gratitude for everyoneโ€™s continued love and support, 2015 has been a year worth looking back on, taking it all in for the blessing-filled year it was.  </p>

<p>I hope, that in 2016, we can all take on the excitement and gratitude we feel at the beginning of a new year into every new day:)</p>

<p>Tis the season!<br/>
The holiday time reminds us of all that we have to be grateful for.  It doesn’t have to be Christmas for me to feel gratitude for all the support you have given me, but I’d like to take a moment to express my thanks anyway.  <br/>
It will almost be seven years since my accident and it’s been a long, tough journey. My journey continues but it’s not a tough one anymore. Thanks to all your kindness I’m able to wake up every day with a heart filled with gratitude. <br/>
I will keep doing my best to become stronger and more independent. <br/>
Thank you so much for continuing to support me!!</p>

<p>Merry Christmas!!!</p>

<p>Hi! I’m sorry it’s been quite some time since I last posted. I have a very exciting update! I move from California to Tokyo last month!! <br/>
It’s been a crazy transition and things are still a little hectic but they are slowly starting to settle down. <br/>
For now, my mom is here helping me get things sorted but starting next year I will be starting my life here on my own! Tokyo gives me the opportunity to work while continuing with my recovery. <br/>
It’s been seven years since I’ve lived on my own but I’m so excited for this new adventure and am so grateful for everyone that has been supporting me through my journey! <br/>
Thank you!</p>

<p>This picture was taken a year and a half after my accident. I was finally able to brush my teeth on my own… And it was a lot of work to do. At that time I didn’t appreciate how big of an improvement it was. I wanted more. <br/>
Today, I can do every step of brushing my teeth by myself: grabbing my toothbrush, putting toothpaste on, turning the faucet on, rinsing my mouth, and putting everything away. <br/>
None of this comes easily, but every new thing I can do on my own, however long it takes, is a victory and I’ll celebrate every one.</p>
