I know I only wrote a little while ago but here is just a quick thought.

What is Crohn’s, or any disease? Actually what is any knock in life? It is baptism under fire. Bruce Lee said ‘Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one’. And we do. I trained for 3 hours yesterday. I couldn’t walk 6 months ago.

I have had to make sacrifices. Change my lifestyle. Accept what I can’t have and enjoy what I do. I have been unable to move because moving would make my skin physically crack and start bleeding. I am nowhere near out of the woods. But this is my baptism.

If life was formulaic and easy, there would be no need for thought. It would just be unnecessary because the formula would tell you how to live. Struggle makes us dig deep. Without it we are too afraid to dig deep because of the fear of what we might find. Like failure.

But I think we are stronger than we give ourselves credit for. We are also weaker that we like to admit. But this baptism under fire forces us to accept these strengths and weaknesses.

That is all I think. Sorry for the brain vomit but it needs to be done from time to time. Now for the tune. Please turn your headphones/speakers up. You will be disappointed you didn’t.
