Day -16. Wait a minute. Wasn’t last week day -16? Yeah, it was, but not anymore. When confirming the official date with my donor, they requested to move the date back another week. So here we are, at day -16. Again.
I’ll keep this post short and just share some thoughts and lessons I’ve collected along the way through this “journey” —
- Patience is a virtue. A virtue that I’ve not enjoyed acquiring that much, but it sure helps keep me sane.
- Yes, it is possible to eat too much pastry. I never thought I’d ever utter those words, but it’s true.
- Your time on this earth is the best blessing you have been given, for free. Use it to the best of your ability.
- Savor life’s simple pleasures. A warm summer breeze; calm, cooling rain; the ability to breathe and walk; happiness and laughter; the list goes on. These are the things that, when stitched together, make us human.
- Nothing feels as renewing as getting red blood cells when you’re severely anemic.
