I relish every little detail of every little day. It doesn't have to be New Year's Eve for me to make a resolution to live my best life. Now, Lupus is not a certain death sentence. It's an uncertain one. (In that you can never be sure when it's coming.) Oh, come on, you know that was funny. You're just afraid to laugh because you don't think you should.
But you should. You should laugh. You should love. You should live. And nothing will make you more sure of that than being diagnosed with a chronic illness. Now, if only you could get up from your chair, right? Ha! Don't worry, there will be days when you can rock it. So hang in there and wait for your moment.
But until then, do what you can. Because if there's one thing Lupus does for you, it's to make you appreciate life, even when it's not 100%. Even when you're not 100%. Even when nothing is 100%. And let's face it. Even without Lupus, life is never 100% awesome. If it were, you wouldn't be able to appreciate the bits that make it worth living.
Lupus is awesome at life appreciation 101.
Oh and Happy New Year!
