"The slow pace of my recovery has simplified my world in a way," Bareilles wrote on Instagram
Get well soon, Sara Bareilles!
The singer and creator of Broadway’s Waitress revealed on social media Wednesday that she has been recovering from minor surgery.
“I have been healing from a minor surgery removing a fibroid on my uterus,” Bareilles, 36, revealed.
In the accompanying photo collage, the five-time Grammy nominee donned a hospital gown and photographed her mother Bonnie Halvorsen and sister Jennifer Bareilles.
“In the silence and solitude of the simple task of my body seeking its healed state, I have become vigilant about what I am intaking. Physically and metaphorically,” Sara continued in her post.
Along with an update on her health, she also gave sound advice to her fans and followers.
“Be careful about how much negativity and noise you heap on your plate. It comes in abundance, but there are other beautiful things at the buffet,” Bareilles wrote. “The slow pace of my recovery has simplified my world in a way, and I am reminded to absolutely acknowledge the chaos of a very strange/surreal time in our country and on our beloved planet, but ALSO remember to come back into the room I’m actually sitting in. Celebrate what is good about that too.”
In the meantime, Bareilles hopes to return healthier and better than ever.
“I will continue to mend and hopefully return with more patience and compassion and knowledge of Game of Thrones,” she concluded.
