Inspiration??

Friday , 3, July 2015 Comments Off on Inspiration??

Some people call me an inspiration because I made it through four brain surgeries; What they really mean to say is “better you than me.”

Not in a bad way. They think they can’t deal…but you can if you had no choice.

Let’s be honest. I am not that woman that crosses the finish line in her wheelchair with her husband pushing her so she can feel the wind in her face; Nor that man with ALS who can no longer walk and can barely talk with a smile on his face.

Sometimes:

I whine.

I cry.

I say “shit” or “crap” when I drop things.

I get frustrated.

I get angry.

Ok, I get pissed.

I cry some more.

I even say, “Why me, God?”

Then…I breathe

count to 10

or 50

or 100. Whatever works.

I remember who I was.

I hug my kids as much as I can even though my son says his are in Vegas and my daughter rolls her eyes at me every chance she gets.

I ride my stationary bike listening to tunes like Rachel Platten’s, “Fight Song.”

I have a diet coke.

I pray.

I

will

do

whatever

it

takes

to

live

this

life!
