Just driving to the airport from an amazing vacation, I couldn’t be more thankful to have experienced Costa Rica. I saw things I’ve only dreamed of or things I thought I’d never see. My favorite part was the culture; and how breath taking it was the experience the food, music, wildlife, the friendly locals and so much more with my love.
At our first stop the Arenal Volcano 🌋
(it’s ok I know he loves me, unicorn mom was in no real danger in the taking of this photo)🤗
I keep forgetting that we did this because I turned 30 😱! Unicorn momma is getting old 🦄🤷🏼♀️… Splitting a big ol’ Imperial with my love while looking out of the beach of Qupeos, Costa Rica 🇨🇷!! #LastStopUpper left corner is my homie Sid. I almost gave up on the actual existence of this “mythical sloth”. They say how easy it is to see these things online until you actually go. They are slow and sleep 97% of the lives soooo how you spot that in a tree top 50ft high?!? I don’t know how my bestie Erika found him, but I worship the ground she walks on now 🙏🏼💜
But as we drive to the airport all I can think of is I’m 12 days away from D-Day. I don’t want to leave. I don’t want to leave this amazing country to come home and have brain surgery. It scares the unicorn poo out of me. I cried on the drive. But my boyfriend says if you didn’t cry you wouldn’t be human. So I cried a little more. I know that I’m going to be ok. I’ve read the statistics and all that medical jazz.
He makes my frowns upside down #Cheesin 😍
Right now I think I need to just take a mental break. A pause form the stress of life and start working on my mental health. I’ve been feeling more and more detached from society, family, work and friends. I’ve been physically present but for the last 9 months I’ve been in La La Land focusing only on brain surgery.
Insert mental break here.
I am not sure if I can return to work as a dental assistant. So maybe I am going to give school a try out, one class first and see how that goes. I know I will never be able to return to heavy lifting and crossfit again, I also have alternative ideas for that. But for the next 12 days I’m just going to focus on my kids and myself. I need to get attached to reality again and the idea of my life is about to change, for the good and the unknown.
As an amazing woman used to say “The next right thing “🌴💜💐 Why can’t I recover here for 6 weeks? Dr. Trumble let’s do a Chiari retreat!!
All I can say is that I’m ready to start feeling better and I know I am on the right path. I just need to stay focused on what’s right in front of me.
Sincerely,Unicorn Mom. 🦄
