This year I asked for a treadmill so that I can get back on my feet and not have to worry so much about getting caught out in the heat in summer or the cold in winter. I did get one and managed to find and identical one (I didn’t know I was getting one) for my Dad the day before. So now my Dad and I have matching treadmills! Dad has had a chest infection for a few years and consequently lost a lot of his basic fitness. This way he can rebuild it in his own time and not have to worry about running out of steam and being a long way from home or trying to keep up with anyone else. My wonderful husband organised for my family to come and visit and spent the day making amazing delicious diabetic friendly food. I cannot thank him enough. He also brought home some beautiful carnations for me.
Life does not always work out the way we expect it to or the way we plan, some times it’s for the best. I am on a new journey of finding the best me I can be in my new brain. This year I will start doing some the things I put off for years due to my illness. The first will be climbing the Story Bridge. I also plan to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Auckland Bridge, for now though I'll settle for the Story Bridge.
There are always things in life sent to challenge us; it is up to us how we respond to them. You can bemoan your woes or you can look for the opportunity in them. Stay safe, stay healthy and happy.
