It’s been 3 weeks since I broke my collar bone.
I was in a lot of pain and so upset with myself. “What did I do to deserve this”? The accident depressed me because I was not able to take care of myself or my family due to this injury which left my left arm disconnected from my body.
In my recovery I had to surrender and relinquish control. And by doing that I was able to relax and stop stressing about all the things I couldn’t do. I thought this injury would have a negative effect on my marriage since I could no longer be super wife and Mom. But instead me and husband grew closer.
My husband was gentle and patient with me. And I was grateful and thanked him constantly. We started to appreciate each other more. A week before the accident we were arguing a lot (something we don’t do often).
By slowing down I realized that the stress I was feeling in my life had a lot to do with me and the pressure I put on myself . This injury was a gift. I was able to take a “time out”- sit still and watch. And what I saw was a beautiful husband and daughter doing all they could do to help and get me back to good health.
So whatever happens to you out there please remember that everything happens for a reason and it’s usually a good thing. Please feel free to comment and share your experiences. Love to hear from you.
