One thing that I think about every day is how much I miss 'home'. . .home as in Idaho, my family, Bryan's family, my friends, my community. . .and my horse. There are days I struggle with feelings of resentment that life has taken me so far away from all those things I love. BUT I am always reminded to be grateful for all the wonderful things I have wherever I live. Life post-transplant has taken me away from the life I loved before my transplant, yet it has given me a life of opportunities and new friendships. No it's not exactly the same kind of happiness I get when I am home but it's just a different happiness. Every day I think of how amazing it is that I even got a 2nd chance at life and that is something I am grateful for. I firmly believe that we decide our own happiness and I am choosing to be happy.
I have to really focus on all the good things I have in my life and I have more blessings in my life than I can count. I have goals I am working towards, I have already had some awesome opportunity to act/perform and life is just an amazing gift every day. I am grateful for what I do have! I can think what I WANT is what is best for me, but I believe God knows and gives me what I NEED.
