A YEAR AGO TODAY I GOT A SECOND CHANCE

It is hard to believe it has been one year since my surgery. It all went by so much faster than I ever thought it would. I am just amazed with the things I do now. There were so many things I'd dread doing, like getting dressed to go shopping, or cleaning, basically anything that was active and not laying around. My life has changed so so very much. I am still mentally challenged every day when I want a handful of this or a nibble of that or something I know I shouldn't eat and I've accepted that this is something I will have to deal with for the rest of my life. I just tell my self everyday, "today is a new day" so any errors I made yesterday are done and over and I have to start fresh today, there will never be a "well starting next week, or starting Monday, or I mine as well wait until the first of the month. Everyday is a new beginning for me.
