Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on recover.
From a loss
From a breakup
From a fight
From a race
From a run
From a hard week, month, time
From saying goodbye
You recover. You do. You come out looking a little different, being different. But you recover. You don't just accept the information, you recover from it all.
You find a way to realize that the loss opens up doors. The heartache means you loved someone important and letting them go is painful, but you had that time together. A fight means you still care and are still working on it. At the end of labor and delivery, you hold someone on the outside of your body. That race, that run, it means you can do hard things so your body will recover and be strong, more able. That hard week, month, time in your life...you will be ok. Even when you feel you won't. You grow from mistakes and rejections. You might replay the goodbye in your head over and over, but you will recover.
Health, mind and strength, you recover.
