When I was a teenager, I never thought by the age of 40, I would be diagnosed with chronic pain. You are so wrapped up in starting your life and striving your goals, that we tend to forget reality isn’t that perfect fairy tale.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
I didn’t think that I would be starting a new job by the age of 43, because I had to quit the first job due to a health decline. However, through these trials I have learned to appreciate the things that I can do. My independence as a single mom was a big thing for me. Now since I am married, I learned to suck up my pride and be a team player. Which has allowed me to grow as a person more ways than one. The two serious relationships didn’t result into anything except becoming a single mom with serious trust issues. I just learned to do what I can to the best of my ability, and I did. I was really good as a registrar at the high school… but as years went by my health couldn’t keep up. Very frustrating and not what I planned at all.
Sometimes the best things, simply do not go according to plan. Without that health decline, I would have never found my strength. Which was to prove that I wasn’t “as disabled “ as the doctors were making my sickness out to be. I had enough faith to prove them wrong, and by the Grace of God… I did just that! At the age of 43, I’m in the healthiest I ever been. Healthy enough, to start easing back into the workforce.
Money is nice to have, but when it causes you to have a health decline due to mental stress. It’s honestly not worth it. Two years to get my health back to normal, which turned out to be two years of no money coming in. That itself was beyond stressful, but I have learned my limits & I’m making improvements everyday. You never get rid of your sickness, you just learn to adjust your lifestyle to make it better!
