No one has ever said that living with a chronic illness was easy, but so many of us do. Some of us find ways to live through the pain caused from our illness with dignity, grace and determination. After all many illnesses do not YET have a cure, so it is just best to push through the best we can.
If we allow ourselves to remain focused on whatever illness or illnesses we struggle with, I believe we would miss out on all the good things life has to offer us. It isn’t worth losing the happiness our life can hold by dwelling on the struggles we face. It is difficult and yet possible to turn all the pain and hardships we wrestle with into something beneficial, I know how crazy that might sound but it is true. Some of the ways we battle through life can be very inspiring and encouraging for SO many others.
Y’all already know that I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for 19 very long and painful years, which is more than half of my life! If I had just given up all hope when I was first diagnosed, I would never be where I am today. Yes, life gets really complicated and frustrating, but overall I am in a very good place. My husband and I have moved to a new city, as y’all already know. We are living in a great home that is where my husband’s amazing grandparents raised their family. There is so much love built into the walls of our home and I swear you can still feel his grandparent’s spirit in every inch of this house! This is a very comforting and reassuring feeling that I am thankful for.
I am pretty sure y’all already know this about me by now, but just in case you ever questioned it, I believe holding on tight to positivity can go a long way. If you are constantly in a negative frame of mind nothing good will ever really happen in your life, which could just be because you aren’t able to see something great that is right in front of you or you aren’t allowing yourself to feel it. Staying negative all of the time just creates a dark cloud over your head that follows you everywhere you go and there is no way to hide from it. Negativity can create a blind spot to anything and anyone that could actually be wonderful.
I know that it is completely impossible to be positive 24/7 365 days of the year, but it isn’t healthy to remain negative all those days either. There is always a manageable balance between the good and the bad; we just need to acknowledge the differences and keeping moving forward!
I hope y’all have had a lovely weekend and you are feeling well today! It has been a sunny and chilly weekend, which is MUCH better than chilly and rainy. Thank you so much for stopping by my site today and I do really look forward to reading your comments. I promise y’all that I will respond as quickly as I can, I am getting better at balancing work and life again! Enjoy the rest of what is left of your weekend. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort and many positive vibes!
