56 Answers to the questions

butterfly weekendEarlier this week, I had re blogged a post from Discovering Your Happiness about Find out who you are (56 Questions). It has taken me a little while to answer the questions because I have not been feeling all that great, but I promised I would post my answers! I hope y’all enjoyed answering the questions and I hope you enjoy my answers! I did include what the questions were just in case you did not still have them!

  1. Do I believe that everything is meant to be, or do I think that things just tend to happen for no reason at all? I am actually a strong believer in, everything happens for a reason. 
  2. Do I forgive and forget? Or do I forgive, but always remember? I try to forgive and forget, but I will not lie sometimes the forgetting is hard. I do not hold a grudge but sometimes I do remember if I have been hurt too much
  3. If I could give one piece of advice to everyone in the world, what would it be?  My advice would be to never stop showing love and respect. Those two things are so important to me.
  4. Do I think that people can change, or that they just are who they are? This might make me a bad person, but I do not think people can change unless they admit where the issues are and work to make them better. But in my life people are just who they are.
  5. Would I consider myself to be religious or spiritual? I am more of a spiritual person but I do have my religious beliefs that I hold strong to.
  6. Would my 10-year-old self be proud of me? I think the 10 year old me would be very proud of whom I have become because I am a stronger woman now than I was at 10 years old. 
  7. What do I think is the best revenge? I do not like revenge because it doesn’t get you anywhere. All revenge will do is cause more issues. So I guess my best revenge is to let go of the negative situation
  8. What would I change about myself? I think the thing I would change about myself is sometimes, I am too compassionate. Sometimes being too compassionate can allow people to take advantage of you.
  9. On the flip side, what would I never change about myself? I would never change the part of me that tries to see the good in everyone. I am the type of person that always wants to help others more than I would help myself.
  10. Can I confidently say that the path I am on in life right now is the one that I (and no one else) would want for myself?  ? I am for the most part on the right path because I am happily married. I just need to get my flare up under control and removed from my life.

About Positively Alyssa

I was diagnosed 16 years ago, when I was only 19 years old, with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I had gone to my eye doctor because I had lost vision in my left eye. Prior to my appointment, I had prepared myself to have the doctor confirm that I would be blind in my left eye and that was all. Never in a million years did I expect to hear the doctor tell me that after consulting with his colleagues, that I need to go for an MRI that day because they were thinking that with my symptoms that I had MS. Just a couple hours later I went to get the life altering MRI. I remember that phone call like it was yesterday. My eye doctor called me from his home at 9:30 at night to confirm what they suspected, I in fact had MS. He immediately referred me to a specialist he knew and I was able to get in to see him that same week. Luckily, after a round of steroids, my vision came back in my eye just leaving me with leg pain that would continue to be part of my life. Through the years I have tried numerous different medications that are meant to slow the progression of the disease down. I was never good at the injections and it wasn't because of the needle, it was because the medication burned like fire going in. Still after all these years I still go through my battles of denial, anger, frustration and sadness. However, I have always said that I would NEVER allow MS to control my life but I would control the disease. For the most part, I have been pretty successful with that. I mean we all have our bad days but it doesn't make the situation any better. With this blog I am hoping that with my experiences, endless amounts of research and a powerful fight i me that I can not only help others going through this but that I can learn from others as well. Living with the ups and downs of MS can be challenging but the power of the mind can beat anything that is thrown our way!

  1. I loved reading your answers Alyssa! I hope your pain subsides soon. I know you’ve been having a rough time with it. I know it’s hard to stay positive when you’re in so much pain, but you always manage to find something positive in all of your experiences, and I really admire that about you!

    • Thank you so much Terri! I try to be positive and sometimes it is not all that easy. I want to do another post, probably tomorrow about getting through the difficult times with a chronic illness. It might take sometime to do. Hopefully I will start feeling a little more alert and myself tomorrow! I really appreciate your kind words! I hope you are doing well today!!!

    Alyssa, i enjoyed getting to know you a little better and it was just a little weird how alike we actually are! Qu.25, you didn’t answer but A book that changed my life was “Life Lessons” by Elizabeth Kubler Ross and David Kessler…I’m wondering if you were to read it would it have the same impact on you?
