A Little Bit

Last night, I ate some ice cream. That’s not that unusual. But I ate a little bit less than I normally do. I got a smaller bowl. The other night, I was about to watch a wrestling match. Instead, I turned it off and went to bed. I wrote just a little more this week. I edited just a bit more. I rode my bike once, as soon as it stopped pouring.

None of this is revelatory. None of this should be celebrated, necessarily. But I’m going to do just that, because the little victories matter, especially when you battle against yourself. Cue Scrubs monologue music. Ba da ba ba ba, ba baaaaa.
