Good evening Y’all! I hope you have had a great start to your week! I do not know where time has gone, but 2017 will be coming to an end soon. 2017 has been quite an unforgettable year, some of which we might wish we could forget! There seems to have been a lot of chaos all around the world, but I am hoping that 2018 will bring some change that is for the good of all of us!
Speaking of where did time go, I can not believe it is almost Christmas. I am normally very prepared for the holidays, but this year it kind of crept up on me! I am truly delighted that I will be able to spend time with family and enjoy their company but my goodness I am so not prepared! It will all work out though as the most important thing is we are all still here and healthy enough to make it to both my mother’s house and my in-law’s house!
As y’all already know, I had a terrible flare up from MS starting back in early October. It was a very difficult ride and tried it’s best to defeat my resilience, but I never gave up on myself. I have slowly managed to get back to my normal self. I still suffer from the obvious pain but it is not bringing me to tears anymore. Thankfully, my job has been very understanding with my situation. I have been allowed to adjust my hours and week by week increase those hours. Last week I did struggle to make it through a 5 hour day, but I did it! This week I have been and will continue to work 6 hour days! I think not rushing into a full-time schedule has been very beneficial to my health! If I did rush into my normal work days, it is very likely the stress would have caused the flare up to get worse instead of better. I truly believe that holding onto a positive mind makes all situations easier to overcome! Anything that could go wrong in life seems to all happen at the same time, but the positive thing about that is once you survive the struggles it is a success!
Life can get so demanding and it gets hard to know what is the best next step. It is important and necessary to evaluate what we are going through and try to make a plan. This is where strategy comes in very helpful. If we are able to break our difficult times into smaller pieces, it makes things much easier and not as overwhelming for us too deal with. It has helped me to just handle smaller issues at a time but still be able to overcome the entire situation!
Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my thoughts for the day! I did not do a post yesterday because I was absolutely exhausted from a long day at work but I will adjust to the early mornings and long days soon! I hope y’all have a nice and relaxing evening! I sincerely hope y’all are feeling well today and holding onto the strength I know you have! Always remember, you are not allow with anything you are dealing with in life, there is always someone out there that understands!! Much love and take care of yourself!
