Today is 4 weeks post surgery!! 4 weeks ago my life changed forever! It has been a really rough 4 weeks and it really made me have to dig down deep and remind myself just how strong I really am! I not only had the pain from surgery, but I am dealing with a minor setback from surgery that I was not prepared for at all. A setback that is not of major concern, but to me...it was the end of the world. To be honest, I became a little depressed, lost sight of who I was and what I was doing and found myself in not a very good place mentally at all. The girl who was always strong, brave and would stand back up every time I fell down...was down and I couldn’t stand back up. But here I am, today, 4 weeks post op and 1 week with my wound and I can finally say I am standing back up. I feel strong again. I feel ready to keep fighting, keep healing and to wipe all of my tears away and start believing in myself again! Life happens. Life can be hard. But those hard moments are when we learn the most. Dealing with this wound has been one of the hardest things for me. I have found a strength I never knew I had. Slowly I began to dust myself off and keep standing back up. I realized just how strong I really am. So yea, things can happen in life that can make us upset, frustrated, and wonder why did this have to happen to me. But without those moments we would never grow, never learn just how strong we really are and we would never be able to look back and think, without those moments I would not be who I am today.
So thank you body for being strong, thank you legs for healing and continuing to support me through all of this, thank you wound for being on the right path to healing, a huge thank you to all of YOU for all of your continued love, support and prayers, and thank you to all of my friends and family who came to visit and day by day helped pull me out of this hole I have been in. Finally, thank you to me for never giving up!
