I never expected my life to turn out the way it has, but I am both intrigued and pleased with how it has unfolded so far.
Without the pain I may have never truly grasped how beautiful each moment is. Without waiting around in doctors offices, waiting for results or waiting for symptoms to ease, I may have never learned patience and grace. Without sadness and struggle, I may have never understood true happiness. Without the complexity of my health, I may have never been pleased with simplicity and the joy of the little things. Without sickness I may never have learned how far I can be pushed and how strong I really am. Each trial, tear and scar has lead me to where I am today.
Life doesn’t always work out how you would have wanted or hoped for, but it does always have a point in working out how it’s meant to be; what’s best for you. I am truly grateful for every minute of life, tough or full of bliss, because in each moment is a lesson to be learned. If you can find the lessons and blessings in the lowest of valleys, consider yourself doing better than you thought.
