I was thinking the other day when reviewing my medical history with my soon-to-be dental surgeon how much my choice and hard work to recover from 2014 serious surgeries and rehab have been of benefit to me. When I was released from the rehab facility (after two major surgeries, including sepsis, two stints in a rehab facility that had no right being in business) finally, I could not even stand up without help. I worked with the PT first at home. I walked every day with a walker, going a little further each day, then with a cane. I went to PT three days a week for months.
Kinda' like quitting smoking? You decide to do what is necessary to reach your goal, you put in the hard work, and finally, at the top of that mountain, is SUCCESS!.
I cannot imagine my life now if I had not persevered after those surgeries. I can STILL do all my own yard work – am now pulling up a huge patch of ground ivy that is taking over a portion of the back of my property I am swimming 40 minutes of freestyle and backstroke laps. . I can't do what I did when I was younger, but my life right now is exactly where I want it to be.
Decide! Put in the necessary hard work! ACCOMPLISH IT!
