I will admit it. Yesterday was a tough day in my recovery process. I have been so incredibly positive about the entire situation, but reality finally crept in and I collapsed under the pressure. There are so many things going on in my life at this moment in time and breaking a hip has not exactly made any of it easier. So I just cried and vented and frowned and sighed a lot and by the end of the day I had it out of my system.
I just needed some hours dedicated to feeling sad about my circumstance in order to come back to the positive side. Hopping around on crutches for another 3 weeks, still feeling discomfort and dealing with a foot long scar on my rear are things no one should have to endure, but they are part of my reality now and I am dealing accordingly.
So here’s to accepting a difficult day and moving forward to a time when all of this is just a story 🙂
Even though I was not in the best mood for most of the day I still had to eat.
Breakfast involved some cottage cheese and handfuls of one of my new favorite cereals – Honey Nut Chex
Lunch was a typical salad with turkey slices that I forgot to photograph, but dinner was an incredible concoction of Trader Joe’s goodies: Brown rice, salmon burger, kale, mango, asian dressing.
And guess what? I made this meal completely on my own in the kitchen. Yup! I hopped around sauteing kale and cooking salmon and it felt great to be the chef of the house again.
So the day ended on a high note and smiles after playing with this goofy ball of fur.
What makes you smile on a tough day?
