I did a puzzle today!

Yup. I know it’s lame to the layman, but I’m super excited about it ‘cuz for me it’s AWESOME! Normally doing a 1,000 piece puzzle wouldn’t be cause for celebration, but for me it’s something I used to love to do but haven’t been able to for at least a couple years. Because of my back pain it’s too painful to sit upright that long, and leaning back and forth to put puzzle pieces in makes it worse, so my puzzle days ended awhile ago. Or so I thought…

Yesterday I felt like trying, and today I finished it! Yay, puzzle binge! 🙂 I can’t believe I was feeling well enough to do it all in one day! At times when it doesn’t feel like progress is happening fast enough, it’s so helpful to at least recognize the little things. I keep a monthly calendar in the living room, and it’s only for recording things I’ve done that I’m proud of, even the small things. Keeps the depression at bay, and thanks to the puzzle I’m glad to see that March is starting strong. ❤
