Day 21 of gratitude πŸ€“

Today was a day I have been worrying about! Group work and presentation at school! And on top of that I had pushed myself to attend the social gathering afterwards since my kids are at their grandmas house. 

It all went well!! 

Beyond my imagination actually. I even had some awesome conversations with several people!! Truly a great day both as a student and as a person. It was amazing to just be me and feel relaxed among people I don’t know well, but got to know better tonight. 

But my luck turned on me 😜 when I wanted to sneak out quietly I fell! And not just a small little ups! No one saw me fall down… No I had to do it better πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ so I missed a step, fell flat on the floor, with a chair on top of me and my previous broken arm under me πŸ™ˆ I tried to get up fast, but it was impossible! Lucky for me my new friends supported me, even hugged me and made me sit down until I felt okay to drive. I had only been drinking water, so it was pure clumsiness on my own behalf! Normally I would have ran out of there, but tonight I stayed. I trusted them. And they didn’t laugh, they just cared for me. 

I finally drove home, my arm is okay, but a bit swollen. I am now safe in bed and hope my body will not be sore when I wake up in the morning for another day of school. 

Today I’m grateful I trusted people around me, grateful I dared to push myself outside my comfort zone. And honestly my pride is not hurt by my stupid fall. I’m clumsy, it’s just another part of me I’m no longer ashamed off πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ

  1. I’ve bit the dust plenty of times. One time in particular I was in 9th grade. We were playing basketball at the college stadium. In bounded the ball and jogged down to the other end of the court when I fell smack in the middle of the court. No warning. No one around. Just me and the flat, hardwood surface. I’m not sure how it happened, but all I remember is one of my teammates boisterously laughing at me.

    No time to be embarrassed though. I had a basketball game to play. So, I got up and kept on running. It’s funny to think about now. Great post!!
