I know that not everyone likes personal posts, so if that’s you, you might want to look away now. But I think for my state of mind this is something I need to post and I’m sure there will be a few people out there that can relate.
One of my new years wishes was positive thinking. I’ve always tried to be a glass half full kind of person but when you’ve been through some horrible things it’s hard to think positively. In December I decided that there was no point being depressed and sad all the time and that I would appreciate what I do have rather than focus on what I’ve lost. It’s easier said than done and I know for some people it’s not that easy but for me picking myself back up was the most important thing. I think having things to focus on really does help. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut and not enjoy the things you used too, but ultimately you’re not helping anyone.
So I’m not going to be one of those people who thinks that a new year will change them, but I do think that the new year, even though we are almost a month into it, is an opportunity for me to realise that if I want positive things to happen, I’m going to have to think positively and get off my bum and work hard. So that’s what I’m planning to do. I’m going to love and cherish every happy moment and take every opportunity I can. It’s amazing how adjusting how you think can change your outlook.
As for my health recovery, I’m doing just fine. Things are pretty much back to normal and the 3rd of February should be my last test. Bring it on!
