After a rough night sleep with a dead hand trying desperately to get some air, I rolled over to turn my blaring alarm clock off at 5:30 am.
Struggled to pull up my blackout shades, brushed my teeth, and started my daily routine as I usually would. But today was not usual and anything but routine. Got into the car I rent for today, picked up my best friend and headed on over to Miami Surgical Suites.
Today is surgery day. I decided to write this post afterward to be able to digest and reflect on the happenings of today. After the reflection, I’ve decided to piggyback on yesterday and expand the quote.
“Tough times don’t last, tough people, do. But even the toughest people can’t do it alone.”
No one is self-made
Arnold Schwarzenegger continuously teaches that no one is a self-made man (or woman) for this reason alone. During these trials and tribulations of your life, it’s crucial to remember, communicate with, and find your support system. These individual whether they are friends, family, colleagues, or even the hospital workers are there to help you ride the roller coaster of life. And more specifically this down time where it feels like you don’t have the right to make it back up the hill.
Learn to lean on others
Lean on them, trust them, and be 100% transparent as they’ll help propel you up the hill to your next prominent peak. This is a time where no matter how strong you are, help from others is needed so swallow your pride, leave it in the dust, and find comfort in others. There are millions of people from the ones your closest with to random individuals on the street that are willing to help. All you have to do is ask for it.
