‘The MRI scan shows you’ve got a devastating injury’, said the knee surgeon in a very matter of fact way.
He went on & on for about 10 minutes with words such as, ‘major trauma in your knee’ … ‘it’s worse than we expected’.
I honestly was waiting for him to say, ‘Osmaan … you won’t be able to walk on that leg again’.
Thankfully he didn’t.
All of this happened completely out of the blue & as a result of taking my eldest son trampolining … yes seriously! (I kinda wish it was as a result of something more ‘interesting’, like snowboarding down the Alps or jet skiing in the Caribbean).
But let’s just say that the last 3 weeks of my life have been not the most fun & in all honesty the most challenging times that I’ve personally experienced.
It’s truly been a roller-coaster ride filled with ups & down in term of pain, mindsets & emotions.
The good news is that I’m getting back on my feet & managing to hobble around the place with my crutches.
So on this week’s podcast episode, I wanted to share my experiences & learnings from this journey with you, along with 7 key things to help you bounce back when the unexpected happens.
- How you can’t plan for everything
- The power of language
- Finding the silver-linings
- The curse of in-decisions
- Gratitude is key
- Put yourself first
- Health is the most important thing!
It’s definitely one of the most vulnerable episodes I’ve recorded.
I really hope you never have something like this happen to you, but the lessons remain valid for a whole manner of set backs or when things don’t go quite to plan.
