I have gone to a therapist to help me to deal with MS and I have learned so much along the way. I have many more demons to slay. These are just some of the things I will work on...
I will work hard at physical therapy.
I will write more. I
will read more.
I will write a book about MS from my personal experiences and
some of the funny ironic things that come from hardship.
I will not be a victim
or be victimized.
I will make my voice heard.
I will do things that I am afraid
I will not procrastinate or use MS as an excuse just because I am afraid
to try new things.
I will think big and not beat myself up when I backtrack or
need help or feel weak and small.
I will see the people who come into my life
are all there to teach me something whether it is good or uncomfortable or
I will do the best I can and I will rest when I need to and I
will eat well and I will get out into the world more and experienced life and
the things that I love to do.
And I won't feel guilty when I need to sleep a
lot and not think of all the time I wasted not doing what I thought I needed to
I will listen to my body.
I will live a more Zen- like life. I will
meditate more and I will live a more spiritual life and that will be my first
My belief is that we are here on this earth to learn lessons from the
hardships that come our way and so I will do my best with the disability I have and do it with the best attitude I can muster.
