Why yes. Yes there is. I can live my life the best way I can. Does that sound defeatist? It's not at all. You see, after I made that Facebook post, I decided to get to work on my garden, in hopes of growing food for the hungry. But before that, I thought I'd warm up by writing the great American novel, self help book or at least jot down a bunch of crap that's been in my head for a while.
About two pages into my epic book, I was done. My thoughts were hopping around like bunny rabbits. I couldn't seem to stay in the same “person” and as much as the subject matter appealed to me, the focus just wasn't there. So, I decided to get going on that epic garden.
After about a half hour of weeding, I started seeing spots in front of my eyes. I had to sit down, inside, in the shade to gather myself. That was when it hit me. With Lupus, epic is a relevant term. Just growing my own garden with Lupus is epic. Writing this little blog with Lupus is epic. In fact, just about everything I accomplish with Lupus is a triumphant victory.
I am simply drowning in epic on a daily basis and I didn't even know it. So thanks, Lupus, for showing me how epic my life already is. I don't have to break any records other than my own or do anything spectacular at all. This battle I'm fighting is epic enough, thank-you very much. Now, where did I put that remote?
