Life’s Challenges

joycemeyer1No one has ever said life was easy and really truly mean it. Life comes with so many challenges along the way and many are unforeseen. There may even be times when things get so difficult you just want to give up and stay away from the outside world! It is so important that even during the most grueling times in life to stand up straight and strong, knowing you are fighting a true battle with nothing but courage!

I think sometimes facing our fears is the hardest thing to do. We all have something we are afraid of whether it be moving to a new city, changing career paths, progression of an illness or something as simple as riding a terrifying ride at the amusement park. No matter how minor or major  the fear is, it is real and frightens us. 

Most of the time life is really like riding a roller coaster without the option to slow down at all. There are so many upward hills that are followed by  steep downhill falls that can95263-Life-Is-Like-A-Roller-Coaster completely take your breath away. Then there are the twists and turns that you do not see coming until it is too late and all you can do is hold on tight and hope for the best outcome. 

It may be hard to believe sometimes, but life always has a way of working out the way it is meant to. I might have been dealt a bad hand with being forced to live with Multiple Sclerosis, but I have been blessed with so many other fantastic aspects of life. Even though I deal with a lot of pain everyday and there are somethings I have to sit out of my husband is always extremely understanding and supportive. 

I hope y’all are having an amazing and enjoyable weekend. Considering my pain levels have been very high recently, I am taking it very easy this weekend trying to rest up so that I feel better for next week. 

I want to thank y’all for visiting my site today. I always appreciate you reading my thoughts and I love being able to read your comments. If you have any questions about the different medications I have some experience with or the different things I have been through with MS, please let me a comment and I will be happy to answer in my next posts! Sending y’all lots of love and comfort always!

Amazing Realizations!

baddayI think it has taken me a while to realize that it is okay to have a bad day. It is okay to not be positive all day every day. Sometimes life might just not seem fair and putting on a happy face just does not work at that moment. It is okay to admit you do not have all the answers to everyone’s issues in life. Admitting and talking about what is on your mind is so important! Smiling through the pain can help some days, but other days it is even more important and helpful to just say “I can’t do it today.”

One day might be absolutely amazing and the next day you just wish you could go back to bed and start over again. The truth is all good days will always be followed by a bad yinday. It might not be the following day or even the same week, but it is the yin and yang to life. Rain comes with sunshine, warmth comes with cold, happiness comes with sadness, strength comes with weakness and good comes with bad, and there really is not a way around it. The only thing we can do is keep pushing forward to the next day!

No two days are the exact same for me. One day I might feel relatively normal and the next day hurt so much it is a struggle to move. I guess that is just the life I was meant to live. I do believe strongly that our lives are a gift and we are just supposed to live it the best way we can without too many regrets. On those days where my pain is at its highest, I do know in my heart a good day is just around the corner. I used to think the bad painful days were some kind of punishment and for what I never knew, but now I think those bad days are just building me as a person and giving me more strength for the next day in life.

Y’all know that I felt as though I was being negative yesterday, but so many of you graciously told me I was actually a pretty positive person. Through the comments I received you showed me how true my first statement was, that it is okay to have a bad day! Letting go of the troubles live like you were die tomorrowfrom yesterday will make way for a better tomorrow! I guess it is important to learn something from our struggles so that we know how to handle them better in the future because difficult times will always reappear. 

I hope y’all had a fantastic day and you are feeling well! Each of you have a strength that benefits someone else in your life and you may not even realize it. Thank you for stopping by to read my thoughts for the day, which let me say are much more positive! Please feel free to leave a comment and I will respond as quickly as I am able to! I hope y’all have a wonderful and relaxing evening. Sending y’all much love and comfort!!
