This summer has been flying by! I can’t believe it’s almost time for school to start again. It’s officially been over a year since I’ve been in college, which sounds crazy to me. Two years ago, I would have never believed it if someone told me I would be taking a year and a half off of school to heal from a Chronic Illness. It’s been a year of growth, reflection, painful times, the best of times, laughter, tears and lots of faith. I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, which helps with the whole healing process more than you would think. I am so excited to push past all of this and start my life again. In the meantime, I am going to try and enjoy this phase as much as I can and see all of the good that can come out of it. I have learned to be so grateful for the good days, and still have a positive outlook on the bad days. I’m not perfect and definitely have those times of struggle where I am down and out, but I feel much more hopeful after those times pass. I am so thankful to have friends and a family that support me with getting better, and a boyfriend who is always there for me, helping me through this phase in more ways than he knows.
Summer is a season of lots of sun, and good memories. It’s a time where I look back on the past years and can remember those times with a nostalgic feeling. They’re remembered with sand, salt water, messy hair, tan lines, good food, and even better company. This year is another very memorable one that I will never forget. It’s been a rougher one because of going through Lyme treatment, but there have been some amazing times spent with the ones I love most. It will be interesting to reflect back on this Summer next year and to see how far i’ve come!
I hope you all are having a blessed Summer and are making some amazing memories!
