Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.Neil Gaiman
What is your dragon today?
Though I often find myself battling with OCD, anxiety, and depression, those do not make me don my battle gear this morning. Today the dragon that needs slaying is an old foe: pain from Fibromyalgia.
This quote came at a good time this morning, because I was surely feeling defeated. The way my illness wins is if I give up and do not in fact persevere through the pain and fatigue. I will in fact take all this pain and use it, pour it into my art, and create some pieces with meaning today.
My dragon is pain, and today I will be the one who wins the day.
What is your dragon and how will you defeat it? Even just for today.
