A daily dose of minor accomplishments can go a long way, it seems.
For instance, today I bought gas so I could refill the lawnmower so I could go mow the lawn. Nothing extraordinary by any means, but completing simple tasks has allowed me to crack a smile or two throughout the day. And this is one+ more smile than usual when you mope around like I have for the past year.
Every little victory leads to me becoming a bit more confident than the previous day, eventually building up to a point where I can be 100 percent “whole” again.
