Today’s guest Deborah Akbar was such an inspiration. She has lifted herself up and overcome major obstacles and she is determined to keep going. She spoke today about the challenges of being differently-abled, learning how to forgive, and how she began healing herself.
Highlights from the show:
- After her accident Deborah put herself through college, met her current husband, had another child, and entered the Miss Wheelchair American pageant.
- Deborah spoke on the importance of listening to your own body and finding health care professionals that you fill can meet your needs.
- Forgiveness is an important step in healing from the past, not only forgiving others but forgiving yourself.
- Letting go of the past and allowing the positive in your life is crucial for healing to begin
Deborah will be traveling to Miami, Florida this week to receive a treatment that has a 98% success rate of giving her back some functioning in her limbs and even the ability to walk again. She will be coming back to the show to give us an update on the treatment and her progress.
Until next time, enjoy the journey to self and everything in between.
