Difficult days.

Some days it’s hard to get out of bed. Basic daily tasks are hard to manage. But you do it anyway.

You bathe the dog.

You go to the college to get the certificate you need for your applications.

You get a hair cut.

You picture the snow capped mountains in all their glory and your heart beat slows down. You crawl back into bed and watch hours of TV. Or you play a game you used to play when you were 15. You smile.

You remind yourself ticking things off your list makes you feel remotely accomplished. For today that’s enough.

Tiny steps. Deep breaths. One day at a time.

Tomorrow is another day. Hopefully it will be better.
