TOUGH TIMES CALL FOR TOUGH CHOICES

I know how it feels to be fully fit one day then your life change overnight. In 2016, I went in for a routine surgery which definitively changed my life.

I was on the operating table for 13 hours. Since then, I’ve had 5 major operations – 1 spinal fusion and 4 hip replacements.

WHY AM I TELLING YOU THIS?
Because it ranks pretty highly as one of my toughest times in my life professionally and personally. And if you ever face a really tough time, you’ll have to make a tough choice. I’m here to tell you making the tough choice is the right one.

THE CHOICE
I could allow it to beat me OR I could choose to pick myself up every time and push through it to live life – in a slightly different way than I’d anticipated granted. However, for those that know me, I’m not one to ‘stay down’!

WAS IT EASY?
Hell no. I was the main earner of the family and had to hold down senior change agent jobs in between surgeries; I battled my way through the health and insurance systems to be heard; I tried to do as much as I could on crutches (never an easy task!); rehab and physio became my daily discipline and the hardest part, I had to watch my husband and children become my carers.

BUT THE PLUS SIDE IS I MADE THE TOUGH CHOICE.
This choice has armed me to deal with any kind of setback – to move quickly from the emotional impact through to the learning and action. And for that, I’m ironically thankful.

I’m living proof that tough times don’t last. Tough people do.

And I’m sure I’m not alone…this is dedicated to those of you who know exactly what I mean.

It’s your journey – travel it well with Turas.
