Moving On 

Like seriously. There is no one else on this earth that is as accident prone as me. I’m sitting here now with my foot in a double bandage because according to the diagnosis I got while in ER today I have torn all of the ligaments connecting my heel to the arch of my foot and up through my toes. While getting in the truck I slipped and lost my footing on the step and bam. Damage done. 

But it hasn’t stopped me. I am still camping out in our trailer at the park. Hubby has the next 4 days off work so we decided to go on a camping trip. I don’t get a chance to get out much so there was no way I was going to let yet another injury keep me isolated at home. If I have to rest and keep my feet up for this to heal then I can easily do it just as well in the trailer as I could at home. At least now I can sit by the fire with my feet propped up and enjoy the great outdoors. Sooo much better than sitting on the couch in front of a boring tv watching shows that make no sense. 

It’s freezing cold out here tonight. I’m bundled up in warm clothes and a jacket and the wind is quite fierce but you know what? I’m loving it. I think I would be able to survive quite well if I had to live in a drafty old cabin in the woods somewhere. I love the taste of food cooked on the grill. A breakfast of tea and smokey, burnt toast is just amazing. 

So I refuse to let this injury hold me back. I’m trying to change my unhealthy ways of living and start filling my life with things that make me happy. Healthy, beneficial activities and nourishing foods. I’m trying to extend my lifespan. I’m working towards filling my mind with positivity so that I can eliminate all of the negative crap that has overtaken me. So I’m going to take care of my injured foot and rest on it but I’m going to do it out in the woods. While the mosquitos have their feast on my blood and my clothes get infused with smoke. Because that’s what makes me happy.
