On Thursday, I had a very long day. I woke up with a HORRIBLE headache. Emotionally, I was all over the place. I was late to where I needed to go. I didn’t think I was going to make it through that day.
When evening came, I couldn’t believe I had made it. My head still felt like it had gotten run over by a Mack truck and like it was going to fall off, but I made it.
So I made myself an ice cream sundae, and it made me very happy.
At that moment, it hit me: it’s so important to find joy in the little
The big things weigh us down….especially those of us living with head injury in some capacity. But if we can’t smile at the little things, we can’t make it through. We can’t even live!
It could be as simple as an ice cream sundae, going to bed early, or being with your family. What have you found joy in?
Keep fighting, and don’t forget to smile. :)
