Health Activist Writers' Month Challenge. It wasn't on my computer any more when I turned it on yesterday.
So this time around, I'm not finishing the whole challenge, but hey, I made it three-quarters of the way through.
There was a time that not finishing something would have bothered me. That was back when I was a perfectionist, and always expected the best from myself.
Lupus has taught me to accept a lot.
I now know that:
- It's better to find the easy way to do things.
- Close enough is usually quite good enough.
- If the worst consequence of a mistake doesn't actually maim anyone, the mistake wasn't that bad.
- Procrastination is sometimes a survival mechanism.
- Not all problems have solutions. So I'm not a failure if I can't solve everything.
- Plates, cups, etc, even the ones marketed as unbreakable, will break when they randomly attack me. It's just stuff. It doesn't matter.
- If I can find one good thing about a day - it's a good day.
- I don't have to be the best at anything I do. It's OK just to be me.
- Little things are worth being happy about, but not worth getting upset over.
- Housework is never actually finished, so there's no point in feeling guilty about not getting it all done.
- I need to find ways to enjoy the life I have now, because any wonderful future I plan might not happen.
- Even if I don't get out much, the internet enables me to have a social life, and to know some wonderful people.
