Year in Review
Life is full of ups & downs as we know. This year may have held more downs than ups but it has made me learn about me & work on myself mentally & physically. I know that what I’ve been through has changed me in ways that I never imagined but it has also opened my eyes & mind, let me see the world & myself in ways I didn’t before. Sometimes though, I don’t always see the light at the end of the tunnel; that’s when my family, friends & all of you come in.
As much work as I have put into myself, I know there are days I needed that support, to be heard, & my feelings validated & they were, by not only those I know, but some of you that I have never even met. You is my Endosisters, Adenosisters, chronic back pain warriors, & those who don’t have these specific illnesses but know about life & have offered me continuous support & love on my journey.
When I am told that I am an inspiration from not one, but many, I am truly humbled. Never did I think I would even be inspiring to one person. What I do know is that by me sharing what I have & am going through, it makes you feel less alone. We are all going through something, whether you see it or not. I am more vocal about my issues but that doesn’t make my problems bigger than anyone else’s.
We each have to face our own struggles & sometimes those struggles feel endless but you have to believe & know that there are better times & days ahead.
Life is full of miracles so why can’t you be deserving of one?
Wishing everyone healthy, happy days ahead. Happy New Year!
