May Your Road Be as Bumpy as Needed...

"When you're broken, in a million little pieces, and you're trying but you can't hold on anymore, every tear falls  down for a reason. Don't you stop believing in yourself, when you're broken."
 Sometimes things just don't work out the way we had envisioned. Maybe, as one of my favorite blogers writes, "We Broke Our Surgery". Maybe you had to put your life on hold for a few months like me because your surgery didn't go quite as you had planned. I spent nearly two months being in pain after my sleeve surgery. I couldn't walk, couldn't sit in a car for too long, couldn't sleep and most importantly... couldn't get ready for my social work licensing exam or get a job.

"Little girl don't be so blue, I know what you're going through don't let it beat you up. Hittin' walls and gettin' scars only makes you who you are. No matter how much your heart is aching there is beauty in the breaking."
The beauty of it all is how we deal with our brokenness. We can shrivel up and crawl under a rock and raise our little white flag, or we can choose to keep our heads high and prevail. We can choose to acknowledge our imperfections and deal with them.
"Better days are gonna find you once again. Every piece will find it's place."
Always hold fast to the knowledge that sunny days are ahead of you. Eventually things will get better. Even if they don't get better, by learning to cope with them you can still find the happiness in your life. A bump in the road is but a stepping stone on the journey of life. May your journey be as bumpy as needed for you to appreciate the dirt path.

  2. Yep Cracked and all... We do own our chit!

  3. <3 I tend to whine that I am raising the flag, then accept it for what it is. But I resist as much as I can. I'm a big goobery baby
