Our Choices…..

download (6)The choices we make today, may impact us tomorrow, next week or even next year. We will never really know when or how the impact will occur, but it will. All of the choices we make will have either negative consequences or provide us with a reward of some kind.

 Maybe I am wrong, but I do believe when we face various situations there are two roads we can choose to travel down. I am not saying the two roads are crystal clear nor do they2 roads have sign indicating which road is the correct way to go. However, I think we all know the difference between right and wrong, but we are all human-beings that make mistakes and may not choose the wrong road the first time around.

After taking the wrong road numerous times throughout our life, this teaches us many valuable lessons we will cherish. If you are anything like me, you beat yourself up for days because you made an incorrect decision. It takes me much longer to forgive myself than it does for me to forgive someone else. Sometimes we might make the wrong choice images (2)several times, but the lessons learned from this will stick with us.

Have you ever tensed up and or panicked when asked a question about something you may have done wrong? This can pretty much be considered a “fight or flight” reaction and the end results more often than not, are not a good one. I do not believe anyone reacts well when they are badgered with the same damn thing for days or even weeks! I don’t know about you, but this type of situation makes me shut down completely. This often brings up SO many negative emotions and memories for me which I have tried so hard to forget themimages (5).

Life works in mysterious ways and there are so many struggles that come along during our lifetime and normally without any warning. No matter what trials and tribulations I may face, I still believe that everything happens for a reason. I know I will never understand why I am forced to deal with certain things, like living with MS, but what I can say is, as long as I am breathing I will never surrender or give up. I have always believed firmly that the only way we can fail is to give up and this is something I will always refuse to do!

ff309e10cdfddaaae004ed16f196e947.jpgI remember, when I was first diagnosed with MS at the young age of 19, I wondered what I did so wrong to deserve this as my punishment. Although as I have gotten older, I do not view living with MS as a punishment, but I see it as a way to prove my strength and determination to survive! I also view living with MS as a way to help others realize that life does go on, but some adjustments may need to be made. I strive to show others living with a chronic illness and even those not battling an illness, that there is still hope and how remaining positive will be a benefit!images (3)

Thank y’all so much for visiting my site today! I hope your weekend has been lovely and you were able to do things that made you happy. After the crazy week I had, I treated myself to a manicure and pedicure. I can say without a doubt that the pedicure helped the pain I was feeling in my feet and lower part of my legs. I think a pedicure a month should be required and even prescribed from my doctor! Even if it is short lived, it is amazing how much the foot massage helps my pain. I hope you are enjoying the final days of the weekend and you are prepared for the week ahead. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

  2. This topic has been on my mind this weekend. Was just thinking about how to cut out candy since I’m very addicted to sugar. Also, I had 3 bubble teas last week and was very mindful each time I had one… I also gained weight and felt super depressed today and fat. I think it was due to the extra calories I’ve been consuming. So today, I’ve decided to be more mindful of the consequences if I were to consume bubble tea and other high caloric treats. Is is the short term gain bringing any benefit besides the quick dopamine rush? Is there any way to make a healthier version of these drinks and treats at home? Is it even worth my time making healthier versions?

    Long story short, I was able to say no to buying a bag of the most tempting candy today and avoided all of the bubble tea vendors with no issues at all. Hopefully I can keep this up without relapsing again.

    • I am so sorry for how you are feeling. I know life gets difficult and various foods or teas are what we enjoy. I am more than certain you are far from being fat, but I do understand as I feel that way a lot. I think many decide to get healthy, but then over-do-it. I think the most important thing is to make ourselves happy. We only have one chance at our life and happiness is important.
      It sounds like you are doing well and said no to a bag of candy. There are some candies that are not all that fattening. Cutting back on things need to be done slowly because if we don’t do it gradually, nothing will work.

  3. You’re right we are all human and throughout our lives will make mistakes but that’s ok because that’s how we learn and figure out what works and what doesn’t work for us. Unfortunately none of us are perfect and we all have a story to tell. We make the best choice for ourselves based on where we’re at in our life. We are all unique in our own way and have many strengths and of course weaknesses. The ones that love us should focus on our good qualities and never back us into a corner creating fear which in turn changes how we react to a situation and/or question. Fear is not love and shame on anyone that does this to another human being. Unconditional love means loving, supporting and protecting that special person in your life. Doubt, suspicion, mistrust is not unconditional love and is unacceptable. Yes we have choices and that type of behavior should be a choice we all refuse not to tolerate. Respect and love yourselves and know you all deserve better than that. All my Love & Support, Mom……

  4. My heart aches for 19 year old you, wondering whether your condition was a punishment. I’m glad you don’t see it like that now, you are such a special person & I wish you weren’t going through what you are, but you are one hell of a tough cookie. As always, a very thought-provoking post with wise words, especially where learning from our choices and growing is concerned because I’m a big fan of seeing life a continual learning curve.  ♥

    • Thank you Caz! I do feel that what I went through all those years ago and what I deal with now have made me a much stronger person. I want more than anything to share my experiences and hopefully help someone going through a difficult time! As always I appreciate your truly kind and fantastic comment. This was definitely something I needed after the hellish day I had! I hope your week is going well and you are feeling great! xxxx
