I’ve been thinking about the importance of small wins, lately — breathing, waking up with the sun, watching it set… One of the difficult things about survival mode is: it can make you feel as if you aren’t accomplishing anything. You put all of your energy into making it through the day, but when your head finally hits that pillow, you always seem to be two steps behind. But, maybe you’re accomplishing more than you think.
