But Despite the Pain...

It is 10:52 pm and I am waiting at the airport, exhausted and still in pain. I thought of how my day went and the pain that just kept stinging through the hours. I realized that today, as in some days, I failed to realize that despite the pain, I'm still lucky. I was still able to do the things that I wake up for, I live for. I did origami with my little girl, chased the news and beat the deadline. The doctor told me my condition should improve in a week's time. I'm still lucky it's not a matter of life and death.

Yes, sometimes when it's just too painful, I simply forget to take it easy.
