From the Blogabout me

Dear 16 year old me,

You have just visited your doctor, he has referred you to a specialist, and you will soon be diagnosed with a medical condition which will change your life forever.

Are you going to be prepared for this?

I’m sorry to tell you but, no you’re not prepared. But you will get through it over time. I’m not going to lie to you. It will be hard, and will take a significant amount of time and effort. Just keep taking small steps in the right direction and it will get better.

worrying


This is what type of advice I would have liked to have heard, from future me or anybody, when I was leaving the doctor that significant day. Even if I wasn’t ready to listen, if I just had somebody tell me this advice, it would have been noted, and one day down the road I would have remembered it.

I plan to open up to my journey I have been traveling on for almost 20 years, what I was worried about and what I was afraid to travel on for too long; but have started to embrace and be more comfortable to travel this journey.

 

 

Better Have a Green Thumb w/ Relationships…

The obvious: Relationships are too much like a garden. Beautiful and enchanting to look at, but you must maintain the flowers and prune the weeds, while small, or they will overtake its beauty. You must always be willing to work at it, and treat it with respect, and it will continue to take your breath away.

Not so obvious: Some times you need a few piles of cow crap before blooms start again.
