Perhaps these last four years of finding #OneGoodThing in the day have helped prepare me for the isolation of quarantine. Isolation itself isn’t new for us—that’s been a side effect of living with chronic illness and being a caregiver. That feeling of isolation is actually (in part) what prompted me to start the #OneGoodThing project.
It hasn’t always been easy to find something good on crummy days. Today I felt mentally and emotionally worn out by life. These beautiful lavender flowers gave me a bit of cheer as I took in some fresh air in our backyard. But by late afternoon, I gave up on the day and got back in bed. When Mama came to see me, I didn’t put on a chipper face, but let her see my tears. It felt good to own my feelings and not hide.
Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was recognizing and accepting that this is a more challenging time than ever to find something good in the day—which only makes it more important to do so! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! Kindness is Everything.
