Well, I wanted to share with you another milestone. Seems like my whole life is about anniversaries and the like, huh? Well, it is! I try my hardest to keep tabs on things that mean the most to me, and the best way for me to do this is to give it an important anniversary date. I feel like if I lose track of the happenings, even a tiny bit, then it wasn’t important in the first place. And. Today..well, today is no ordinary anniversary for me. Today is when I had my surgery. Here is the post where I wrote about my experience from pre and post surgery…and let me tell you, I AM SO NOT THAT SAME PERSON FROM FIVE YEARS AGO! Not even from three years ago!
Which is a good thing.
No. Lemme rephrase that.
It is a GREAT thing.
While I was getting ready for work this morning, which was a feat since my husband and I have been binge watching The Wire almost every night. (Which means we were up till 2 last night, but we finally finished Season 4!! What a great show! How did I miss it!?!?!) So, while I was busting my groggy butt trying to get myself and three other people out the door to be on time for everything, it donned on me what date it was. September 29. Wow, has five years really gone by??
I cannot believe all the wonderful things that has happened to me since I took the plunge to go under the knife 5 years ago. All the positive things. All the great mental changes. All the amazing physical changes. All the things I have been able to be a part of and all the wonderful things I wanted to be a part of. Namely, not sitting out in life… ANND strapless clothes. JK. And, I couldn’t help to think about all the future things I won’t miss out on cause of my change.
It takes guts to change things in our lives, doesn’t it? Especially about us, in a personal manner. No matter how small or big we see it at the time. To put our foot down, swallow the fear, shut out our inner negative and just change, it takes courage, people! Don’t wait for life to change, cause without you making it happen it won’t happen. That is all I wanted to share about how special this day is for me before my day got insane.
Don’t fear your self-worth.. don’t fear what you are capable of doing… take charge of your life…and be great!! Know there are people to support you in this journey. That love you for you, but you have to love yourself enough to change! Loving who you are is something that took me a long time to figure out, and still am working at. That has to be the number one lesson learned from my experience. And, I look damn cute in a strapless maxi! Ha
Ok, my day is calling me .. yuk! Mondays!
Thank you all for reading! I haven’t said that in a while. It means a lot to see the comments here and on FB. And over the Summer I acquired a few more followers, which is great. Thanks for joining along! I really have been off the hook busy with my family life, that I had forgotten my blogging life. Which is a good name for this blog now that I think of it! I miss sharing my inside thoughts along with the fun stuff I partake in. I just need to make the time.
Which I will! But I gotta run for now!
