Gratefulness…

Hey beautiful people,

You ever looked back over past situations and thought about how thankful you were because of the outcome? The hard times you experienced and how Far you have truly come and what You’ve become? I do too.

Quite often, especially when I’m in midst of the storm (as mentioned in my last post), I try to keep things in perspective and know that there is good present. Our cognitive thoughts has a big effect on us and with little reminders that our Story isn’t over yet can be helpful.

This is one reason, I’m able to still find some joy and happiness despite battling MS, and grieving for my loved ones. I know that with my faith, I’m not alone. I know that I’m not taking the Brunt of the Battle. I’m human, you’re human, we have to take it one day at a time.

I hope this helps someone today. I know what you are currently experiencing is tough but you’re tougher. It could seem like you will never find happiness but with finding Peace, happiness can follow. You have a meaning regardless of what you’ve heard. Please, hold on.

Thank you for reading!

Motivational Monday: the Sunrise

Happy Motivational Monday friends!

I know Mondays can come in tough especially when we had a busy weekend and a pending busy work week ahead. I, too, have to really push myself as well but today was different.

I over slept today, had to rush to get my son ready for preschool and as we were waiting for his bus, I saw the sunrise. It was at that moment that I picked him up to view it as well. Now, I know you may be thinking what’s so special about that? It’s special because I haven’t been feeling well.

Ever since the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, my left leg has been on and off weak, I’ve been experiencing nerve pain in the left side of my head and a new recent issue with my ear. I have not been able to HOP out of the bed, I’ve needed walking assistance during the first steps after getting out of the bed. Also, as I held my son watching the beautiful sky, I realized that I haven’t been able to hold him for that length of time the past couple of weeks. Therefore, I immediately thanked God.

As a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Warrior, I have to be grateful for those moments because the disease is unpredictable. I’ll feel great now then a hour later, it can go down hill again. On today though, I had another chance at Life. Just as the Sunrises, I know many are fighting their lives just to see that and I won’t take that for granted. I’m here for a reason, another opportunity to succeed while the sunrises for my soul. If you’re reading this, you too had another opportunity at the hustle and bustle of life.

Friends, I hope you have a wonderful week, I’m grateful for your support and I’m here to support you as well!

Thanks for reading!
