Head Up, Heart Strong: The Best Advice I’ve Ever Received
I wrote a post just over a week ago about a flare I’ve been dealing with. Your comments were all so kind and have supported me through the past month, but there was comment one in particular that hit me like a freight train. happygoluckypug gave me the best piece of advice I have been given to date: "Remember you have a 100% track record of surviving the bad days. You will continue to kick ass and be awesome."
Wow. Perspective is everything. Instead of looking at the bad days that lay before me while I go through this flare (which I believe I am slowly coming out of!), I am now looking at all the bad days I’ve survived and managed to turn into productive days. I’ve still built a life even during the bad days. And I dragged myself through each and every one of them.
These words are the words I have repeated to myself daily for the past two weeks.
I just wanted to share this with all of you because it’s the most important comment I’ve read since starting this blog, and it’s true for each and every one of you—chronically ill or not.
