What I Can

Yesterday started out pretty rough. I felt very sad and hopeless, with minimal energy and attention span. I started doing things, but felt overwhelmed and had to stop.

And then I thought: Okay, I’m having a difficult time. I can’t do some of the things I wanted to do today. But what can I do?

I couldn’t phonebank for Bernie Sanders, but I could read about what it entails and make posts on Facebook. I couldn’t go shoe shopping in person, but I could look at and possibly order shoes online. I couldn’t win a game of Ticket to Ride: United Kingdom against Fox, but I couldĀ learn from my mistakesĀ and accomplish most of the goals I set.

The more I did, the better I felt, and the more motivated I became. I feel so much better today!
