Which turkey would you rather eat? Technically they are both the same so what makes the difference in your choice? The process
Ask anyone who has had surgery and they will tell you--it takes time to heal, there is a process. Sure, there is much fanfare that goes along with prepping for a surgery that can be just as crucial as the surgery and recovery itself. Yet, one often finds that the real work begins after the surgery/procedure.
As I reflect on my own surgical experiences, there was one reoccurring theme: it takes time to heal. I continually looked for every possible variance during my recovery: the appearance of scars and suture lines as well as my overall feeling and strength level from day to day. I compared my preconceived timeframe coupled with the surgeon’s for when I would be able to return to life as usual. What I learned was . . .
DON’T RUSH THE PROCESS; GIVE YOURSELF TIME TO HEAL
My surgeon was patient but would remind me that everyone is different and it takes time to heal. Things don’t always look like you want them to but everything will eventually be fine. Sometimes it takes longer for one area to heal; sometimes things happen that change the recovery process and time frame. Sometimes you hurt more than you anticipated or pain transfers to different areas that normally would not have been affected. Nevertheless the end is the same: with time you will heal and possibly be better than before. The ending holds true whether it’s surgery, heartbreak, loss or addiction that you are recovering from. Sometimes there is a new normal that is a blessing (with time) compared to your old normal.
