My definitions of a “good day” and a “bad day” have changed a lot over the years, and even over the last few months. What I used to think was horrible I now consider to be pretty good. But what hasn’t changed is how it feels to have a “good day.”
Today was a good day. I didn’t do much by some standards, but I did a lot by mine. I did laundry. I paid bills. I took a walk. And I felt ok. For me, this was good. Not only was this a good day, but it wasn’t a bad day! I’ve had a lot of pain and nausea over the past week. Oh, and then there’s the fatigue, too. Actually, I’ve had a lot more nausea than usual over the past several weeks and it was really getting to me. But today I didn’t have any and it just felt so good!
I think it’s important to always appreciate what we have, but I know that can be hard. It’s so much easier when there’s a stark contrast. When one day sucks and the next isn’t horrible, it becomes clear how important the little health victory moments really are.
I don’t know what tomorrow will be, or next week, or next month. I’m just glad today doesn’t suck.
If you can relate to this, please pass it along and share the camaraderie! Thanks!
