For those who live an active, fast-paced lifestyle, “resting” can be their worst nightmare. I know because it’s mine but I’m slowly learning that sometimes rest can actually be your best friend and not your enemy.
At the time it can feel like forever but as you look back time goes by so quickly without you even realising.
Behind the scenes I have been constantly working, and working and working so damn hard to change myself.
Today I achieved my next biggest goal on my kneehab bucket list. After 611 days, 1 year and 8 months, 87 weeks and 2 days I just stepped onto the basketball court and completed my first full contact training.
My goals are continually changing each day but my determination to want to get better will always remain the same. Some days are hard on me physically but most are hard on me mentally. I just keep reminding myself about the day I’m going to be 110% again, cause thats going to be a great day.
Welcome to week 85 or week 72359720375, (well that’s what it feels like to me) a pretty damn crucial week in the Life of Nina.
You bought me hardships, adversity, and difficulty. But, you showed me how to be brave, to be resilient and to be strong even when I was weak. You definitely were one of the hardest years I have ever experienced but there’s not one thing I would change about you.
I trusted from the moment I walked into the physio at 8:30am this morning that I would walk out with my head held high, along with the feeling that I had achieved everything I set myself up to achieve. Today was that day alright. FINALLY.
I’m pretty excited about where I’m heading, I don't really know where I’m going but I know I'm on my way.
"Wasn’t sure if i'd ever make it to the day, where I could finally step back onto the court. I have been dreaming of this for quite some time now and MY GOD does it feel amazing to be back."
You never really know how much you’ve changed until you look back on your journey.
I remember I was and especially at the age of 15, you’d never think anything like that would happen but that’s life, it’s full of mysteries
