Why should we focus on the good things in life? Why is it important to be able to point out the good things that have had happened in a bad situation?
Since November of last year I’ve been dealing with a health issue that has been stressful to deal with. Even though the surgery didn’t go very well, the surgery part is over. Now it’s time to figure out how to live with parts of my body that is gone.
It’s been a difficult situation to process and deal with. I find myself struggling with the “new identity” that’s been handed to me. I say “new identity” because I’m having to figure out how to be a woman without some of my woman parts. This can be emotionally difficult to navigate through.
One of the most important things I’ve learned is that I have to remember the good things in life. I need to be aware of how lucky I am. Things could have been much worse than what it was. Even though I’m still struggling to find peace with this situation I can always focus on the good things in life.
The first few things that come to mind when I think about positive things in this situation is for a fact that I have a wonderful husband. He has been by my side through this whole process. He’s been in my life since late 2006. I’m blessed to have him in my life. He has been through the sickness and health part many many times with me. He’s been an absolute blessing to have in my life.
Another good thing I have is good health insurance because of my husband. He has worked at the same job for 13 years now. He’s a dedicated man and a hard working man.
I have two people who have been there for me since day one with this serious health issue that started in November. My husband and my youngest sister have been a great support system through all of this scary stuff. I am beyond grateful for them.
It’s so important to remember those good things in life. These are the three main things that come to mind during this difficult situation. It’s helped me to be able to remember these three positive things.
Whenever you are faced with a difficult situation I hope you remember the good things in life.
