Never the one to make social media my diary, writing this comes completely out of my comfort zone. And, while I certainly did not write this with the intent to receive any sympathy, I do hope that through my transparency someone else will be encouraged and inspired.
In recent months, I was diagnosed with a rare blood disease. My whole world upside down. I've told very few people aside from my closest friends and immediate family. I pretended all was well in my world while having to constantly go through several rounds of intravenous treatments (not fun 🙄). As I sat in a room with patients undergoing chemotherapy, I kept thinking to myself, "How the hell did I get here?". As I sat there glum and feeling sorry for myself, the patients around me, despite their critical condition, were FULL of life, positive and happy. Despite what they were going through, they smiled. Needless to say, this was the exact wake up call I needed. Every once in awhile, we all need a reminder of just how blessed we are, despite the obstacles that present themselves. I won't say that every day will be easy and that I won't have my moments of sorrow, but I do vow to genuinely try to approach every situation life hands me with a positive attitude, submitting and trusting God's plan. 💞💞💞
