Battling Through Adversity
It’s been a crazy past few months. There has been so much that has happened in my life with both work and my personal life that I’ve hardly had a chance to sit down and even blog it seems. Right now I’m actually blogging from my new apartment. Krista and I decided to move apartments because of various reasons but I think the biggest was because of the maintenance. Anyway, we’ve been trying to settle into our apartments and because of her very meticulous labeling system we are on our way to being unpacked rather quickly (don’t tell her that I actually appreciate her labeling ).
As I sit here and think though, with all the stress that I’ve had and how much I feel like I can’t handle things, I think of how much Krista has gone through and all of the sudden everything I have to do seems so small.
The past couple of months, Krista has been going to various doctors trying to pinpoint some of the pain that she has been having. It’s been a tough road and I’ve tried to help her as best as possible to remind her of medicines, get all of her medical history down and to go to appointments. I feel helpless a lot of the time because I have to trust in the medicines that are given to her and just try my best to help her out.
Through all of this, Krista has been a trooper though. She doesn’t complain in public about her illnesses. She keeps going to work and giving 110% with her pain. Although she could work from home more often, she refuses to do it because she wants to keep pressing on with her passions and her normal life.
I can’t even imagine how much pain she is going through. If I were in her position, who knows I might not be that strong. However, Krista exhibits such a great spirit and knows how to power through situations. That is something that I really admire. It’s one of the reasons why I feel I am lucky to marry such a woman. To have that much drive to keep going in the face of a lot of pain, it’s admirable.
So as I sit here I just have to remind myself that my troubles are not as much as other people’s. We all have our own issues to take care of and to battle through. I don’t think anyone can quite take on the stress that I have in the same way that I can’t take on anyone else’s. It doesn’t matter though because it’s all about how you battle through everything that is thrown at you. YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH ANYTHING. No matter if it’s sickness or many personal problems. Find the inspiration and drive in your life and never let go. I get that strength from seeing KristaRose every single day. It is inspiring and I feel so lucky and blessed to have such a great person in my life.
