As I sit in CHOP awaiting my room where I'll be firmly planted for the next month or so it's hard not to think about what I'll be missing. My favorite season, the coolest holiday, and of course the family that is unable to come see me. But there are ways to feel more connected.
I brought pictures of family and friends and pictures of leaves falling and Autumn. I intend to make sure I see Fall in one way or another. Halloween window clings will fill every available window. All of this is to shed just a bit of normalcy onto my extremely abnormal life. But it's all temporary. It's important to remember that everything is temporary.
Life is constantly changing. For better or worse, it changes. You can either roll with the punches and get back up or let life knock you down for the count.
Life is constantly changing. For better or worse, it changes. You can either roll with the punches and get back up or let life knock you down for the count. But that's not an option. Staying strong and remembering that my life will not always look like this is what keeps me getting up, knowing my situation is temporary is what motivates me to write these blogs every week.
Stay strong and know that whatever you are going through is only a temporary situation.
