Strength

A lot of people have a word of the year, which they focus on for the whole year. Instead of having a word for the whole year, I have a word of the month. I look at what's happening in my life and find something that seems very relevant and something that I have been struggling with and focusing on that.

So that leads me to what the word of the this month is: strength

This word has several meanings to me this month. One of the meanings behind this word being my word this month is that I am working on strengthening my quad. I know it might be a silly reasoning behind choosing this word but this is something I am struggling with in PT. In order to get my brace off I have to build the strength back up in my leg. And I am really struggling with this. I lack confidence in my leg without the brace on and I'm mentally struggling with being comfortable with my leg.

Along that same lines, I have been struggling just in general with my knee surgery. Apparently I haven't come to terms with this surgery being a good thing. I have struggled and hurt and been uncomfortable nonstop for over a month now. I don't find any good in this surgery yet. Yes, logically I know this was the best choice because my life will be better in the long run thanks to my knee staying where it is supposed to be. But right now I'm not seeing that.

So like I said I choose the word strength.
