The past several weeks have been quite difficult for me, but with that difficulty have come some amazing and uplifting moments. Today I got a heaping dose of good energy, positivity, and new connections.
I stumbled upon an Instagram account earlier this summer for the Invisible Conditions Conference which was focusing on IBD. Today I got to attend that event and it was just amazing. I’m so very appreciative for the event and all the people that I got to meet there. It was amazing to connect with so many people that fully understood what I’m going through with my disease.
Itwas incredibly uplifting and just what I needed right now. The timing was great and I’m so thankful!
I got to have a deeper conversation with one of the organizers after the event wrapped up which was quite beneficial for my adapting to life in Vancouver. He was kind enough to listen to me and chat about various topics and ended up giving me some excellent advice that I’m going to follow up on.
You know, one of the most amazing things a person can do for another person is to just listen. That can be such a gift. This person did that for me today. I really appreciate it.
After that, I walked through the rain for a bit, which was kinda enjoyable, then went to work the closing shift at the coffee house with a co-worker I’d never worked with before. She and I got along swimmingly and we chatted away while cleaning up and stuff. It was a great end to the day.
Overall, I’m just incredibly blessed, thankful, and hopeful. Today was amazing.
I hope that you also had a great day! Whether you did or didn’t, tell me about it! I’d love to hear/read what you’re up to! 😄
