Let’s get this recovery show on the road! Surgery went well once it started, but it was delayed. As a result I was very dehydrated and hungry when I woke up, and that led me to being pretty dang nauseated. We got home from the surgery center around 9pm and once I managed to eat some dinner I felt worlds better. I’m sore and swollen today, but that’s to be expected! #fasciotomy#injuredrunner#surgery#compartmentsyndrome#recovery
It’s the last day of #mindfulnovember I’m so sad it’s coming to an end. I’ve really enjoying posting every day!! So today I was thinking hard about what beautiful means to me. I immediately jump to the material ideal of the word put to us in the media today. But it’s not always about physical beauty what about the beautiful moments too?
And then that got me thinking about some of the beautiful moments I have had this year (of which I can share!) and this photo did bring in both aspects of beauty for me. Because on this day I felt beautiful and I think you’ll agree the other bridesmaids looked stunning. But this moment was so special taking this photo and seeing my best friend meet with her dad just after this was taken and the moment between them was so beautiful.
And as for my bestie; she always always looks stunningly beautiful but on this day she was so graceful and radiant ❤️ but not only that she is beautiful on the inside too and she was so concerned about everyone having what they needed on the day we almost had to tie her down to her her own hair and makeup done 😂
Day 26 Challenging
So many challenges over the past few years and so many to face in the future!
There’s the daily challenges to overcome and the big future challenges to face up to and tackle head on ❤️ It’s ok to admit things are hard and it’s ok to admit that things can be challenging for you. It’s ok to admit that things are too tough and to ask for help; but if you don’t try to face up to the hard bits in life you’ll never know how strong you are!! even if that means you get there with a little help 🌸
