I realize as I sit here and write this post that I can talk about the subject of "best day" from several different angles. For example:
- I consider Friday to be the best day of the week because it signals the start of the weekend. While I no longer work, my husband does and the weekend translates to two whole days I get to spend every waking moment with him.
- Some of the days I consider to be the best of the year include my birthday, the long days of Summer and all the holidays, especially Thanksgiving Day.
- Some of the best and most memorable days of my life so far include: the day I moved out of my parents' house, the day I found out my cancer was in remission, two graduation days from UCLA--for my Bachelors and Master degrees, the day I bought my house, the day I got engaged to Robert, our wedding day, the day I bought my first new car and the day I adopted each of my pets.
- As a cancer survivor, I acknowledge that each and every day I live past my January 13, 1988 diagnosis of leukemia automatically becomes a best day for me.
- A best day with fibromyalgia and chronic illness is a day that I have successfully stayed inside my energy envelope, paced myself, incorporated rest into my daily routine and have not experienced a flare-up of my symptoms.
- If I could wake up one day and no longer have chronic pain, no chronic fatigue and no chronic illnesses ... now that would definitely be the best day ever!
