Good Days and Great Days (#42)

For someone who struggles with mental health issues, I have heard I only have good days and great days. The good days are when things are going really well and life is easy. Great days are when you are dealing with hell and still manage to use your tools and find gratitude at the end of it.

Today was a great day.
