Short Races

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other. Walter Elliot

Living with a chronic illness there are battles we face everyday. Some days getting out of bed, or walking outside is hard battle. Sometimes just being able to say ‘Ill try again to tomorrow’ is something. All battles take determination, persistence, no matter how big or small they might seem.

It might be hard for others to understand that some everyday tasks can be big mountains to climb. When someone tells you ‘to just push through it,’ or ‘its not that hard’ they probably don’t realize that you did push through. We push through everyday. We push through to get through the day.

So whatever you battle you faced today you did it. You persevered.

You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plow right ahead. George Lucas
