Today has been a roller coaster of emotions for me. It’s been 1 week post surgery and my abdomen is still swollen and I am unable to do “vigorous exercise”. Although I want to do my high intensity workouts, physically I am still very sore. And that is the crux of my problem. See, exercising is my way to deal with my anxiety. It eases my stress and puts me in a place of “seeing” clearly. So, in the meantime while I “know” I need to “take it easy”, I also am focusing even harder on the things that make me happy each day.
Without further adieu, here are today’s Happies:
- Drove my kids to school this morning! I normally drive them every morning but since my surgery a week ago, I have been unable to. The time I spend holding my children’s hands as I walk them into school is PRICELESS!
- Enjoyed a very nice healthy lunch with my husband at Whole Foods and was able to grocery shop (although slowly pushing the cart).
- Got the AWESOME news from the pathologist that they DID NOT find cancer in my fallopian tubes. I have other a “female issues” that were addressed with the surgery and a history of problems that I will blog about later.
So, while there are some issues I am still struggling with emotionally and the other day to day life obstacles, there are still those precious nuggets of happiness that SHINE above all else.
What happened today that has brought the sparkle to your life?
