A lot can happen in 24 hours – you can fall in love, or get a promotion; on the other hand, you can receive not so great news. Sometimes life doesn’t hand us the cards we expect or want. I sure didn’t want to end my 23rd birthday by visiting the hospital due to a bad reaction to a thyroid medication. Even though I thought I was not going to survive, I made it through.
Although the first year working on naturally healing my thyroid was one of the most challenging years of my life, both physically and emotionally, I still made it through the good days and the awful days. I’m still on the journey to going into remission from Hashimoto’s Disease, and some days are great while others are not. In fact, I’m sure you have each experienced in your own lives that the bad days just seem like they’re impossible to get through, but you can get through.
The day that you embarrassed yourself in front of the class and you just wanted to go home.
You made it through that day.
The day you were rejected by the person you really liked.
You made it through that.
The time you thought, “This is the end.”
I’m here to say and celebrate with you that you made it through that!
Regardless of what beauty or pain you have been through, you have successfully made it through. You should be proud of yourself; you’ve survived every great and every difficult day thus far! You have made it around the sun a few times now, you can make it through anything life throws at you! There’s a few things I hope you take away from this blog: each day has 24 hours, 1,440 minutes and 86,400 seconds, so if today isn’t great, tomorrow the clock restarts. There is always hope for a better tomorrow.
