House bound and recovering from surgery this week has given me the time to
1. Analyse every detail of my home; and
2. Take a few photos of the pretties that surround me.
3. Remind myself that I am singularly responsible for my own health and happiness.

As much as anybody else.
It is fascinating (and somewhat heartbreaking) that I am not willing to give my own body the time and patience that I would afford to anybody else in my life to recover from this procedure.

And ironically, pushing my mind and body through the pain has resulted in what is probably a slower than desirable recovery.
What a shitty cycle to be in.
