✨you never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice✨
We are so used to just going through the days and our daily routines, checking off to do items, going to work, food shopping, the gym, repeat but then something comes out of your control and blindsides you. It disrupts your busy life and derails you. This stuff we don't plan for or even think will happen but you have no choice to put life as scheduled on hold for some time while you work through it.
When I was hospitalized then found out I needed surgery I was nervous, scared and many other emotions. I knew it was the only solution though so not having it wasn't an option. I couldn't believe that something could escalate to such a serious situation so quickly. One part that no one realizes is the toll this takes on a person mentally. I started thinking what could I have done differently? Why me? It turns out the bacteria that was in my lungs was nothing I could have prevented. It was not from working in the hospital, weightlifting and my nutrition had nothing to do with it. I had to accept that it has happened, is out of my control and move on. I've had to dig real deep for strength and how to push through these tough times. But all I know is I am on my way up from here! Happy Memorial Day everyone ❤️💙
