stepping Backward to Go Forward

Being raised by parents who were in the military, I was taught that you push through no matter the pain, negative consequences, or detrimental effects.

If you’re not dead, keep going.

I’m learning more and more that a true mark of adulthood is admitting when you need a break for your health and wellbeing, even if it means taking a few steps backwards.

Following my doctor’s orders–sunlight, rest and convalescing.
