Those days when, after your shower, you’re doing your regular daily sciatica exercises and you realize that, “hey… things aren’t as bad as earlier this week. I’m stretching further, and breathing deeper. I feel stronger.” It’s a strange and wonderful feeling in contrast to six days ago when you couldn’t walk properly or take stairs.
And as you’re lying on your back, you reflect: sometimes bad things will just happen, but it takes work to make good and positive things for yourself and others. And that’s okay. It’s good, even. It means it’s always worth working at being better.
