I want things right now. I am a hard worker, but I am a person who likes instant gratification, a sad trait.
Having a stroke has really made "day by day" stick. I had to work hard to get my right hand have the little movement it has, I have had to work hard to learn to read once again, I have had to work hard to learn to write again... learn my number again, increase my memory, increase my memory (hehehehe), etc... It has been a long 14 months, but I have grown so much... the little things that bother me, I am letting them go, I worry about my own problems before other's issues, I have learned to say "no" (which is so very hard to do!) and I take time for myself. I may not have the social life I had before, but I like spending "me" time... the knitting, beading and walking I do are therapeutic and are helping me heal and get stronger.
Day by Day... I am increasing my knowledge of this statement, day by day.
