Hills in Life
Sometimes it is easier to forget the hard stuff in life. It was bad enough the first time, right? My 20's and 30's have taught me not to forget the hard stuff. It is part of what makes me who I am, and always gives me a reminder of why I want to constantly improve my life. After all, if I only remember the good things, I may never want to change.
So I remember the 60 pounds I gained in my 20's. I remember the miscarriage I had and the subsequent year of infertility afterwards. I remember the insulin dependent gestational diabetes during my first 2 pregnancies, and I remember the cancer.
You would think it's hard to forget things like that. But as time goes on, it becomes easier to not think about times that are too painful to remember. Without those hard times, I wouldn't be the person I am today.
