When Life Influences Your Change...

On the evening of July 31, my life changed exponentially, with my first major surgery a few days later. Hey, I had made it to 60+.

After spending thirty days - the first two-ish weeks in the hospital, and the 2nd two-ish weeks in physical rehabilitation - I came home with a, basically, healthier body and mind, than when I entered the emergency room, that evening.

I could have let the financial woes, the physical pain, etc, take me into a very dark place - which in the past, had been my "go-to".

In contrast, I was able to meet every challenge calmly and rationally - such as advocating for myself, figuring out what needed to be done, letting the medical team do what they needed to, etc.

I didn't do it alone - I have been working hard, particularly over these last four years, to practice gratitude, with the help of my supportive circle - though relatively small, we are mighty - thank you for all of your support. I am NOT leaving out a peace that can only have come from above.

I also had my Seester, who came to see me, almost every day, and took care of Motion - the amount of driving, alone, was almost three hours, daily. For this, I will never be able to fully express my gratitude.

I am still healing - Tylenol Extra Strength is my current "verybestfriend"; but am growing physically stronger, every day.

Have you ever had something in your life that caused you to majorly change? I would love to hear your feedback.

Thank you, have a good day, and be safe... #2022YOU ****** #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes
