I felt like writing something, but I didn’t know what to write. I remembered that old nursery rhyme, the one that starts: “Monday’s child is fair of face”. I thought, what does it say about Saturday’s child?
Apparently, “Saturday’s child works hard for a living” is the line from the most common version, according to Wikipedia.
I don’t work right now, I can’t work right now, but there are times when I work hard to stay living: think that counts?
To me, working hard to stay living means being fastidious about your medications, disciplined about exercise, vigilant about your thought patterns, proactive in your social life, appreciative of the positives which come your way, grateful for small mercies and open during therapy.
I feel that I’ve left some things off the list. What would you add?
