Mom made another comment last night that quickly caught my attention. She says she notices that yes, not only do I like being with my friends, but I don’t mind being with the family either. I enjoy being at home, working and relaxing while I can.
I was raised to have a very strong work ethic, and I do consider myself a perfectionist. In my book, this can be both a good and bad thing.😂 In elementary school all the way through middle school years, I was always the student that had to have every single assignment done perfectly. I didn’t and still don’t want to miss a beat! When it comes to my job now, I’m the same way. I like to leave work knowing I’ve accomplished what needs to be done for the day. This is just how I am, and there’s a lot I’ve learned from it.
Not everything in life will work out the way you want it to. Sometimes things happen, and you just don’t have any control over it all. Step back and enjoy the things that matter most, like family and friends! When I think about it, those were the first people around when I was diagnosed. I like to keep things very simple, too. I look at each day as if it’s just another chance to enjoy what I love most. 😊
Never lose sight of what’s most important in your own life, and as usual, live each day to the fullest. ❤
I think it’s important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy. ~ Paula Cole
