Life in Recovery

I've gained so many insights while in recovery from major back surgery.  Lessons about patience and acceptance abound.  Years of a high-intensity lifestyle brought to a screeching but necessary halt.  Wearing a brace for 3 months felt like a form of prison ... bars around my freedom.  Yet, in the grand scheme of things, the restriction was short-lived and required of me should I wish to return to a robust life of activity.  Perspective gained, I became grateful.  Thankful.  Full of joy and cheer for the chance to get up and get going again.
