Fourteen Years Later

Recommended Posts

Today it is 14 years since my brain decided to play silly devils.

After an initial struggle to come to terms with what had happened and many months of recovery I now have a good life.

It may have knocked my sense of balance and memory off kilter but I look on it as doing me a big favour in the long term. Positive thoughts. ;)

Yes, I know I have to use a walking frame but that hasn't stopped me enjoying life, I look on it as my bit of independence.

 

I was unable to go back to my profession due to the balance problems but I eventually made a new life for myself that I enjoy. Unable to do most of my housework (something I hated but necessary) I now have a cleaner. In fact I do very little in the house. I spend most of my time doing things I enjoy doing.

I can travel when I want, no adhering to a set holiday routine and I do love to travel, exploring different cultures, Europe only though because of insurance costs, but so what, I am following a dream of my younger years. 

 

Initially I thought that the SAH was the end of the world, my opinion on that gradually changed and I now see it as a positive event in most ways.

 

The message here is, look on the positive and not the negative. Your life is what you make it in spite of possible difficulties, there is always a way round them.

 

I have gone on to make a good life for myself, you can too.

Happy Anni-Versary  Super - you're certainly and inspiration for people who may think that their life is over or crave for the person pre SAH/NASAH.  You're living proof that life does go on and, indeed, can be better than it was before.

 

Here's to many more journeys and experiencing many more cultures xxx

Happy 'Anni'versary SuperMario!  Have a great day and thanks for posting such a positive outlook!

 

Life is about making the most of your opportunities, and after a SAH they change, but they are still opportunities!

 

I travel too, short haul and long haul and having had a SAH, it makes me appreciate seeing the world even more!

Thank you,  that was a really lovely post to read, very uplifting. I haven't even reached my first anni'versary yet, but I do hope when I reach my 14th I can be just as positive as you about it all.

Well I'm a bit late to this party, but I do congratulate you on your accomplishments and joyous attitude. ( and I too would love a cleaner).  May you have many more journeys and adventures.
