Wow the week ahead is going to be somewhat crazy. Its midterm week, which is normally crazy but this time its a little more than normal. Normally all we have is reading plus my midterms, but this time one of my instructors assigned homework plus the midterm which consist of fourteen essay questions that require no less than five hundred word answers. And of course that is the minimum which means to receive full credit one must write more than five hundred words per question. I’m slowly seeing my plans of hiking on Saturday dwindling. Oh well such is life…of course this would be more acceptable if I were working on my Masters Degree versus my Bachelors Degree but I didn’t choose the easiest of degrees either. I look forward to the challenges of the week ahead. I know I will complete everything and receive flying colors, if for no other reason my perfectionist need in life itself.
So aside from that and work things are good. Hopefully they will still be good after seeing the Orthopedic surgeon tomorrow, but I kind of already know the outcome….surgery. So according to the MRI I apparently have a TFCC tear or torn cartilage in my wrist. And it would be just my luck that the only true fix is surgery. So tomorrow I meet with the surgeon to discuss the MRI and what to expect of the surgery. What can I say, another adventure in life awaits. Maybe next time I’ll think twice about ignoring the pain for months on end…after thinking about it, probably not. But on the bright side I can still run after the surgery, but no weights or pushups for three to six months.
Now for the philosophical side of the post….
Over the years I have come to learn and understand a few things, in fact they have become my rules of life. First off only you can make yourself happy. You must be the one to find the silver lining in every situation in life. No one can find it for you! Second you must make the best of every situation. If someone hands you lemons then make lemoncello with it. Don’t sit back and bitch about things if you are not willing to take the time to fix them. Others cannot fix your problems for you, only you can fix them. Third always be able to take care of yourself in any any situation. Never rely one hundred percent on someone else. You never know if they will be there the next day, next week or even the next year so make sure that if something were to happen that you can survive. Fourth don’t be fake. Don’t say one thing and then turn around and do something else. You can’t preach about one thing telling people do this and turn around and do the opposite, any and all respect people had for you just flew the coop. and the last thing don’t lie or pit people against one another. Don’t lie to one person about something just to change your story when your called out about it….once again loss of respect right there.
And one positive piece of philosophy (because there always has to be a positive)…always forgive, always be the better person regardless as to whether someone has lied to you, played the fake card, or even used you, always forgive them….always be the better person and move one once you have forgiven them. Why?? Because your life will be more peaceful knowing that you did the right thing by being the better person. You did not sink to their level… You can’t change who people are, they will do what they want and be who they want, but you do not have to go down with them. Everyone is free to be their own person and make their own choices. Realize that its not your fault, put those people behind you and move on with life to better friends.
Alright I’m done with the philosophical side for at least a few days. I hope that everyone had a great weekend and a great week ahead!
