"Scars are just a sign that you are stronger than what ever tried to hurt you"
one of my favorite quotes can summarize my morning today.
I woke Up early as always, ready and excited for a day in Melbourne...
Happy but tired after food-poisening 2 days ago.
haven't been able to eat or sleep for the last days... Which is really frustrating cause I know how quickly my body get affected negatively and drops...but not much I can do about it.. Just try to make the best out of the situation.
So due to lack of energy I didn't wanted to push my body through a hard workout, (even if my mind wanted to ofcourse! )
so I decided to go for a walk and explore!
I found a playground and as you guys probably know by now, playgrounds makes me excited to try crazy things....😅
but today it didn't ended that well.
I was just going to jump over a metal table, when I slip on the wet grass and land with my shin on the sharp end.
PAIN. And.... BLOOD.
"Oh shit that hurts... "
I bended over to look at it... Oh shit (again) it's quite deep.
Dizzy from the pain and blood, did I start to walk back to my friends appartment.
I passed by a pharmacy and thought I should go in and buy something to clean the open wound.
The receptionist said
"oh shit that's deep!, I think you need to see a doctor and get stitches..."
i didnt know know if I would cry or laugh...
The pain and amount of blood pumping out I started to believe she was right.
Went next door and got to see a doctor quite quickly.
And YES, stitches (damn that was quit painful!)
in my left shin. No ocean for me for the next 14 days.. until the stitches will be taken out and antibiotics for 5 days.
Quite funny actually.
So typical me.
Anyway, I'm sitting here on a cafe with a delicious lunch (and coffee!!) with my leg elevated, a new accessorie on my shin, a big smile on my face and thinking that this is just another experience to add to my list.
Which happened for a reason.
What at doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
It is up to you how you chose to deal with the pain you go through in life.
Do you let it BREAK you, or do you let it MAKE YOU?!
