If you’ve known me for a while, you probably know that over time, I fell more and more in love with fitness. ⁣
⁣
It became my cure for anxiety. ⁣
A huge part of my social life. ⁣
An escape from work. ⁣
A pick me up from depression. ⁣
⁣
Then with my surgery, I couldn’t workout. ⁣
⁣
This past Tuesday after a few incredibly anxious days, I did something I never thought I’d be doing. ⁣
⁣
Even though I’m back to training, ⁣

𝘐 𝘥𝘪𝘥𝘯’𝘵 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬 𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘰 𝘦𝘴𝘤𝘢𝘱𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘺. ⁣
⁣
I blocked out my schedule, picked up and drove an hour to hold my favorite human for a total of 15 minutes. ⁣

⁣
I was reminded just how much I appreciate my brother in law. ⁣
I was reminded just how disappointed I felt that I missed my sister at work. ⁣
I was reminded just how special my parents are to me, and just how much in an instant they can make me feel whole again. ⁣

⁣
For a while I forgot that. ⁣
⁣
And as frustrated I get with slowly recovering from surgery….⁣
⁣
It was quite possibly one of the best things to happen to me. ⁣
⁣
Having a support system is one of the greatest things you can have. If you learn anything from me, please let it be to never take that for granted. ⁣
