I know life gets hard. Sometimes it seems downright horrible with multiple sclerosis tagging along. The unknown of each new day can truly be daunting, but you are going to make it. Today is a brand new day ready for a brand new YOU. Take a deep breath, shake yourself off and be prepared for an amazing day. You are the one that gets to make it amazing. You and only you.
Don’t underestimate the power of a positively focused attitude, but give yourself a break and allow your feelings to be felt. That’s why they are called feelings…because you FEEL them.
Take the time to be overwhelmed, grieve, cry, and even pout if you need to. I always cry best in the shower where I know I can be alone and where it’s easier to blow my nose. Crazy, right? There’s something about the water that seems to make it all better in the end. So cry if you must, but once you have dried up all the leaks, get yourself dressed and ready for greatness.
Shake your fist at MS if you have to, giving it a big “telling off” to clear the air and to let it know that you mean business. I actually gave it a right jab for knocking me over as I was getting out of bed this morning. It didn’t hurt MS one teeny tiny bit, but it sure made me feel better.
One day I would love to be able to say I used to have MS. That MS is no more. Sadly that day isn’t today. But do you know what today is? Today is a day full of countless possibilities, conquerable moments, untold victories, and strength even when you feel as if you are at your weakest and about to fall apart.
You can feel bad and still be great and even do great things. You got this. You really do. Today is conquerable…now get out there and conquer.
