Any time you get an injury it always opens your eyes to the daily struggles involved with not having the use of certain limbs or being able to complete movements. We all know being in a wheelchair would be incredibly difficult but it’s not until you have to have a shower sitting down or try and carry a drink while on crutches that it sinks in just how many small movements we take for granted.
I’m still able to do most of the things I need to but I can’t carry much or get too far while on crutches. I’ve been to the outdoor gym every single day and hobble my way to coffee at a cafe afterward. After four surgeries in the past and lots of injuries throughout my life, I’ve always been on to have an enormous amount of gratitude for being able to do any sort of activity. One minute you have the capability and you never know what can happen.
Luckily, I only have two weeks post-surgery on the crutches if all goes well, and will be back to walking from basically the first days of 2022. Other than the injury, I’ve been working a bit on the blog and have transitioned to a new, faster theme called Trellis. However, you probably can’t notice because aesthetically it still looks the same.
I also launched my Patreon Page, which serves a double purpose. Firstly, it is a place for readers to support me after enjoying my free travel guides with a small monthly payment. Secondly, it’s a place where I can offer my services through mentorship and also offer different tiers of benefits such as sending out handwritten postcards, presets, and direct access to me through messaging for advice on blogging and travel tips. You can check out the full Patreon Page by clicking here to see the different tiers and membership benefits.
I hope you all had a good Christmas and finish off the year strong.
