The Joys & Woes of Surgery!

So here just 1 week after surgery.... for the most part it went well. I had a rough time after surgery after the hospital with the moriphine and then let me just tell you the day after I had never felt worse pain in my life!!! I had a great spiritual experience that really helped me overcome this.

Laying in bed for 1 week can get really, really old!! I have watched approximately 1440 minutes of One Tree Hill! Yup that is 24 Hours!! Thank goodness for Seasons on DVD! So all in all I had tons of time to lay around and do nothing which is very rare in my life!! I took a week off work and really didn't have too much contact.

I love my friends and I miss them!! I am thankful for the caring people that visited me and brought me food and cute gifts! Its the little things in life that make me happy! As much as surgery sucks and being on crutches sucks, I think I'm in pretty good spirits.

My family has been so great at taking care of me, it hasn't been easy for them I'm sure but I truly appreciate it and I am so glad we are close.

There has been a lot of time for me to think while I've been away and again its made me realize that the stupid drama in life is not even worth it. Everything blows over, what we think is the biggest problem today, probably won't be the biggest problem tomorrow. It is pretty much impossible for everyone to get along with everyone, there are way too many personalities and insecurities. And I hear people complaining about cliques, but really lets be honest, everyone has a clique. You are always going to have a few closer friends that you are always with. I don't think it is at all snobby or mean, I just think that, that is how life is. I admit, I have a clique, but I do not hate anyone else or think that I can't be their friend. I love my group of friends, they are truly my support and some days I do not know where I would be without them. And I think that everyone feels the same way about their clique. I sometimes wish we could all be one big clique but that really is not possible at all, because everyone can't get along with everyone.

For some reason this has been on my mind quite a bit this week, probably because when you're not really around it and you hear about it all you realize the divisions in friends. There is always going to be people that say or do things to you that are really horrible, but they're people too and everyone makes mistakes. I'm not saying lets go be best friends with them, I'm not even saying talk to them but just don't stress over it.

As Bob Marley says "Love the life you love, Love the life you live!"

Be happy with who you are no matter what!! My motto is "You Only Live Once!!" So live it up and try your best to be as happy as possible!

Another good quote by Bob Marley

"Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I am not perfect - I don't live to be, but before you start pointing your fingers...make sure your hands are clean."

A saying I heard this week and hadn't heard in forever "He who hath no sin casts the first stone"

There is no one on this earth that is perfect so don't stress over the little things or other people live life for you!
