On Monday, I found out that I needed to have brain surgery done; I haven’t been feeling quite right for some time, so I finally decided to go to my neurosurgeon to get everything checked out. I have known my surgeon for practically my entire life, so I wasn’t nervous when discussing what he needed to do; I didn’t expect him to tell me that the issues have been like they were for so long. As we talked more about the procedure, though, which will be a shunt revision, I did start to get a little apprehensive. Thoughts ran through my head about all of the what if’s of having the surgery, and I began to panic.  

My stomach tightened up, my palms got sweaty, and I began to think about all of the possible things that could go wrong. All of this ordinary, but none of it necessary. When I left his office, I began to breathe again, and as I walked, I started to think a little clearer about what the doctor needs to do. I called my parents and girlfriend and explained what needed to be done, and even more, my fear began to disappear. I began to believe that even though this is a not-so-good day, something good will happen for me by moving forward with this surgery. 

As the week progressed, I continued to believe that something good will happen, and despite feeling not my best throughout this week, I am hopeful that getting this surgery will make me feel better. 

I promise myself to believe that even though life will throw me not-so-good days life, there will always be good days to follow, and I will embrace them. 

Make yourself a promise today to believe that a good day is always around the corner waiting for you, so even when you have a not-so-good day, you will have the hope to continue to move forward.

I believe in you. Believe in yourself too.

When you believe in yourself there is nothing you can’t do, when you believe in yourself you will develop the power to pull through. The world becomes larger, and clearer each day, and you start to develop the courage that you need to get you through even the darkest day. 

Your life may seem tough at times, and that’s okay, continue to believe in yourself and your abilities anyway. The challenges you face may seem so much harder, but when you believe in yourself, you will be able to handle them much smarter. 

So believe in yourself, and know that I believe in you too, know that there is someone out there who is thinking of you. There are people out there who want you to succeed and do your best, there are people out there who believe in you, and want you to pass the test. 

This test of yours is life, and you can get through, just by believing in yourself and all that you can do.
