A little self reminder.
Today I had to check myself. I had to remind myself where I’d been… because generally I find it’s way too easy to forget and become ungrateful for what you’ve got.
So as you can imagine, for the past week I’ve been overcome with joy and appreciation. I look like me again and it feels like nothing short of a miracle after months of escalation.
But as I’m sure you can relate, soon enough, you recalibrate your perspective and expectations.
And I caught myself doing just that. As I saw my skin clear more and more, I was no longer focusing on the improvement, but the imperfections that remained.
As I reminded myself where I’d been, I thought — isn’t this true in life that as we get more, we expect more?
Maybe today you need a little self reminder to appreciate where you are, to look back where you’ve been, and be grateful for how far you’ve come.
So here it is.
