Everyday heroics is not pushing yourself to go further and faster. It’s not about battling against your circumstances, whatever the cost. It’s not about insisting on living life as you did before.
It’s getting up and starting another day, even though yesterday sucked, and so did the day before it. It’s finding the courage to face the reality ahead of you, and deal with it one small step at a time. It’s recognising that some days it’s an achievement to have got up and gone out the door. And other days it’s a struggle just to get your socks on your feet.
Everyday heroics is about celebrating victories no matter how small. It’s about developing the acceptance, resilience and compassion to face those everyday difficulties and challenges with realism and determination.
