Stive for progress, not perfection.
Love this! I was in the grocery store on the weekend and there was a woman, who had no assistive devices, but clearly struggled to walk. It could have been pain or a disability but as she passed me I realized how lucky I am. I want to be stronger (and with that, be more compact than I am) but I can breathe and I can walk, and I can eat most things, and I can drive a car, and I have a job, I own my home, and I am loved by my husband and my family, and I have friends who are thoughtful and fun.
Maybe I am already living my ideal life - holidays and a "polished" looking house are superficial. Maybe more satisfaction from my job and feeling stronger in my body is really it ... everything else is great because I am blessed.
