Many know by now that I suffered a nasty injury at the end of last year that had me out of work for a couple of months. I am now back at work and start my first full week this Wednesday.
I will say that while following doctors orders and going through the recovery and healing process is important, internal and mental healing are paramount as well. I have enjoyed the past few weeks and this week being the culmination of being around those I care about, I’m around often, and feeling a sense of normalcy again.
I have said well before I founded the #imjustdrew brand that the people and the environment are what makes life and any experience great. I’m blessed to be able to experience this and be around. I am also improving on being a team player not only in the workplace, in my day to day life but also to God and Jesus. I know my plans are not always in alignment with His. I do know that His plan is the best and I have to trust and be patient with the process.
This is where having my folks, my tribe around me is important. They lift me up when I’m down and continue to encourage and celebrate me when I return and we link up. I enjoy a good conversation and dialogue and while I am tired, my heart is full.
I honestly feel the prayers, thoughts, communication and well wishes from others has helped in my overall healing and I’m definitely a rich man for that. It sounds cliché but it’s true.
