On Recovery

Although I'm writing this in advance, this is a personal post from C.

When this post goes live, I will be recovering from an operation. Although I have had many (more than I can count on my fingers and toes), they are something that one can never get used to. So I have to stop and think to myself, that I have happiness right here. Even though it sucks that I cannot be out partying, or that I am missing days of school, I have started to learn that I need to be happy with myself and where I am right now. (this is from a lululemon bag, judge me.)

I want to encourage everyone else to join me in the attempt to try to be happy with myself at this moment, appreciate what I have and what I can do. The last thing I wanted was to visit the hospital yet again. But I remember how blessed I am to have some of the best doctors in the country working on my body and trying to make it function better. I have parents and friends that love and care about me, and of course I have a doggie who will be with me too. I have knowledge that I will be better and things will improve after this.

If any of you all are struggling with anything, write down a few "positive" notes on your current situation. If you lost a family member, think about the times you had and how he or she would want you to live. Maybe you went through a breakup. Think about all of the good things that can come out of a seemingly tragic situation. (I know how hard this is, trust me.)

Life is too short to be unhappy with your current life.
Love and Support Always,
