5 Challenges. 5 Small Victories. Make a list of the 5 most difficult parts of your health focus. Make another top 5 list for the little, good things (small victories) that keep you going
1-humility that comes with things like personal hygiene taking a backseat at times
2-pain that nothing can quiet
4-guilt that I've ruined my parents lives & plans
5-not seeing a future I can handle or a future I might could have had if I hadn't gotten sick
1-getting my pics & story published in a magazine
2-feedback from people who identify with me-or one friend who said she wanted to be a good friend to her newly diagnosed friend & reads my blog for advice
3-the sense that I'm fighting with every pic, blog entry, etc.
4-seeing who my real friends are...strangers, old friends reconnecting, etc
5-taking my loss of photography that I loved overseas & repackaging my subject as I turned the camera into myself, soul, & opened up the raw nature of my life. I found immense freedom in that!
