We can do anything we put our minds to if we try hard enough. We just can't expect it to be easy all the time. I survived cancer and I can survive this and be the person I want to be.
When I drive to work or a store I find one of the furthest parking spots from the door and then I feel it adds steps and walking to my day. Also using stairs instead of escalators or elevators adds extra steps.
When everyone else takes the escalator I run the stairs and beat them to our destination:)
