Appreciate the good days!

arthritisI’m watching an old episode of the West Wing and the “President” – Martin Sheen – just said “one of the good things about having MS is that you learn to appreciate the good days”.  I don’t have MS, but I do have a chronic condition with good days and bad days and how true this is.

  When I have a pain free day – like most of today – it’s a great feeling, almost “high”.  Last summer I had a couple of months of good days, and felt so good that I almost made some very bad career choices, luckily a few of my trusted advisors took the time to take me aside and convince me there were better options, so I’m back in a trusted advisor – pretty low intensity and low stress – role and loving it.
