It’s hard to believe it is December all ready. This year flew by with lightening speed. On this day last year, I was having surgery to remove my ovaries. Not a difficult surgery but leading up to it was difficult mentally for me and it was definitely the lowest point in my life. I felt so old and broken. I had had such a traumatizing experience during my mastectomy surgery 11 months earlier when I ended up in ICU on life support due to an allergic reaction. So I was pretty scared I wasn’t going to make it through. Anyway, I did make it through, using every tool possible, with a new lease on life and a sense of gratitude that is larger than I could ever dream. It has been a tremendous year of healing and growth for me and I am stoked for 2020.
I saw this today and I felt proud. Proud of how I’ve learned to embrace the darkness with the light and how I am trying my best to handle it all with grace and love.
You never know what people are dealing with on a daily basis. Be kind to yourself and others.
Until next time.
Only joy, only love,
