Lesson of the little things

The past couple weeks have been an interesting challenge. After spending the last couple years becoming completely independent and realizing just how capable I am of taking care of myself alone, I was hit hard with a new lesson. One in which small, easy, and little things had become nearly impossible tasks to accomplish.

That's when realization that I do actually need help from others sometimes, despite how much I don't want to accept that fact (far too often) had set in. Some people surprised me and ran away when I asked for help, others came out of nowhere and surprised me with their kindness and willingness to help me so much.

My faith in humanity has been restored, and I believe again that most people will go out of their way a little to do some good for others given the chance. This experience has been a blessing, even if it was mostly painful, and I now see much clearer who my real friends are. Thank you everyone who helped me during this time, even just a little bit, it meant so much more than words can express accurately.
