 i was watching part of an episode of katie couric's talk show the other day & it was about the "cost of beauty".  one of her guests was a woman who got a staph infection from silicone injections & ended up loosing both her hands & part of both legs.  she had an amazing spirit & made a comment that really stuck with me.  she said something to the effect that before she took everything she had for granted but after what happened to her she feels like she was reborn, given a second chance at life & she wasn't going to waste it.  she's currently training for a triathalon.  amazing!

while i have not had trails & tribulations such as this woman or others that i have known, i have had issues in my life i've had to over come.  we all do.  & when i've over come them in a way i'm a "new person".  we've all heard the expressions "starting a new chapter" & "that was my old life", so prehaps while we may only get one physical body we are blessed to have many "lives" within that one body.
