Hey Clare. I couldnít imagine breaking another bone, especially after a year of recovering. It takes so long to recover physically, mentally, emotionally. I was in a depression the first 6 months. And just a few weeks ago, I decided that whatever I was doing wasnít working for me. So I turned to God, and I let Him bear the burden. I feel like a new woman now, and can move on with my life regardless of my leg. Iím thankful to still have a leg. Many people donít have both of their legs.
You canít think about the years ahead. You donít know and canít control what happens tomorrow, but I know youíre not going to have a very good tomorrow if you decide to dwell on how bad tomorrow will be. Speak your good days into existence. It works. Wake up and say ďthis is going to be a great day. I am going to be the recipient of a blessed day. I am incredibly thankful for the riches I have, the tangible and intanglible priceless blessings that other people donít have. I am thankful for my bed. I am thankful for food. And I will feel better soon.Ē Positives words turn into positive thoughts. I pray things get better for you soon.
