“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
We’re in the city right now, and last night something quite wonderful happened. Our neighbour joined Ben and I and we walked a few blocks down the road in the mild winter air to our local Japanese restaurant.
After a casual and delicious dinner we strolled home again.
That’s it. That’s all that happened.
No biggy, right?
Except that it was. When you live with chronic illness it’s amazing how small your world can become. For the first time in a long while I went out at night. I walked to a destination and home again. And had the energy to do all of that and still feel good about it.
I hardly ever go out at night, and so to combine dinner, friends and walking feels like some small kind of very tasty miracle.
Hooray for feeling better, and for life!
Hugs and love to you, Nicole ❤ xoxo

I am smiling as I read this. Every step deserves a party!
Yeh yeh yeh for normal every day things. They are so underrated. Big love to you. 💞💞💞
But it is a miracle! It’s a huge achievement and I’m so glad you blogged about it and told us all about your success. It’s these small, everyday things that we miss so much when we are sick, just the ability to do normal everyday things. I cried the first day I could do a yoga class without lying flat on the floor for half of every move. And go to the supermarket without being so sick I had to sit on the bench out the front while my husband went inside. I’m so happy for you that you did this normal, happy thing and can feel good! x
So happy for you beautiful girl.. 🍻cheers to many, many many more of those moments to come your way.. luv you to the moon and back.. 💕💕💕💕✨✨✨✨✨😊
So happy that you’re feeling better, Nicole. it’s important to be reminded that the simple things aren’t that simple for everyone. And how grateful we should be. Sending you love and grateful for your uplifting and wonderful communications and wisdom. Thank you!
