I don’t deny that some days are so bad that they seem to darken our lives irrevocably.
But that’s usually not the case.
It saves a lot of anxiety and stress if we learn the difference between a bad day and a bad life.
I continue to be inspired by women I know with debilitating chronic illness, symptoms so bad they can’t leave their homes. And yet, they still find joy, they are still productive–even as they acknowledge the pain in their lives.
I don’t know how they manage. But when I think about them and their courage, their tolerance, and I do, often, they lift me up.
