My PH StoryIt has been five years and I think the hardest part of all of this was waiting to feel like I used to. Here’s where the learning to be a different version of yourself comes into play: I know now that I probably won’t ever be a jogger again….but I enjoy walking. I won’t ever have the ultimate energy I had….but I enjoy slowing down and really seeing what is around me and hearing what my kids have to tell me every day. I am blessed with teenagers who understand that life is not guaranteed – so I have close and special relationships with each of them. I am blessed with friends, colleagues and family who have held me up through the tough moments and will likely need to do it again before it’s all said and done.
