I am managing to fight through the urge to rest most of the time. The fact that I can still be upright after living with MS for over 20 years tells me something. It tells me that a positive attitude and fighting through the fatigue has, for the most part, worked for me. I know that it doesn’t work for everyone. I am very blessed.
I realized the other day that not only am I very blessed, but I am happy. Not everyone has that, I know. That isn’t to say that life is perfect. No-one’s life is perfect, but being happy in the moment and understanding that you are where you are meant to be and are content with that, brings happiness. Now, if I could just get my finances under control. Oh yes, back to contentment…
Here we are at the beginning of August--more than half way through the year. I still can’t get used to the fact that it is 2015, much less that we are half way through the year. Every year brings something a bit different, and gee, they seem to fly by so quickly. I do still long for retirement, I must say, but I have figured out that I need to be in a better financial place to be comfortable retiring. I just need the MS to cooperate and we’re good.
I also need to find a new level of patience at work. I am working in an area that scares me. My kids will tell you that I like to believe in rainbows and unicorns. I believe the best in people. So, working where I have to be worried about cyber security doesn’t exactly align with that. But it does pay well. So, I shall hang in there a bit longer and, hopefully, manage to make a reasonable contribution while I’m there.
So, I seem to have wandered through this blog today, not really having a point I suppose, but it’s that kind of day. It’s a beautiful Sunday, a day of rest and reflection. It isn’t meant to be a day for major work. So, I shall just go with the flow.
God bless everyone and I pray that you find your flow……….
