My advice would be to try n see the positive things that happen in your life when it’s difficult. If you’re not able to, it’s ok as well; but bear in mind that things pass & you have bad moments followed by good ones. Otherwise you would not be able to appreciate what you’ve got.
What’s more; don’t compare yourself to people who haven’t got MS but to those who suffer from it & I believe you could even set up a group or online society to support others & that would be a gift you could give to universe & universe would pay back to you. Hope this message uplifts you at least a little bit. I believe in you & know you are AMAZING person!!!!
Not to mention, gratitude isn't just being happy about the good things, but the appreciative for the bad as well. What has your ms brought you? Who have you met, what strengths have developed from your suffering?
By being of service to others, you feel like you matter. When you make a positive impact in something/ someone/ the world, you feel like your life has meaning. This is important to find you self-worth and have a happy, fulfilled life. And when in sickness, This might be even more important to you. This Jay Sherry taught me.
However. Its not impossible. Look for the small things in life that bring a smile to your face or makes you less angry with your situation.
Im always thankfull when i see the rain, just because it soothes me. I try to remember. That soothing feeling when i am out in the rain getting drenched while trying to get home.
Is there a friend of lovedone who takes care of you or visits? Did you wake up today not feeling horrible? The first smells of spring.
I know it must be hard to do but try to remember you are alive and make the most of things. Be gratefull. Dont let anything steal your happiness. Eventually not having a great day and letting situations or people upset you will only bring you down. Choose to be happy and grateful.
Goodluck my friend.
I just had to get really basic. Thank you universe for giving me a soft couch to lie on. Thank you for my television and smartphone. Thank you for such a small townhouse so I don't have a large expanse between me and the bathroom (even though it felt like a really long way).
I get mad at the universe and say bad things because I was so devastated by illness.
I am lucky. I found a medicine that helps. I am much more active now and can get around most days without too much pain.
What can your body still do? Can you still hold your smartphone? Feed yourself? It's hard to say without knowing specifics, but I know there's ALWAYS something to be grateful for. Please take care and reach out when you need help. Much love to you.
It is hard for someone with an outside perspective to give insight… I have several people in my family who have different types of medical diagnoses and as a member of their family, I am grateful for their presence. I am grateful for seeing them be so strong as it encourages me to be strong too.
I think you can express gratitude for being brave to face MS daily. You can be grateful for having people around you (even if it might be only 1) for taking care of you. You can be grateful that medical science and technology are no more what they used to be, and that there are more and more breakthroughs everyday. You can be grateful that you are providing inspiration to others.
Do you have a media presence? Maybe you could start journaling your experiences and the daily struggles that you face and how you go about facing them. You could be a crutch to those who are not able to stand on their own (metaphorically). Maybe a youtube channel if you feel adventurous or even a blog.
I am grateful for having your question as it enables me to think about others more and be humbled by the immensity of life. Thank you and nice to meet you.
not this mo th, but right now… Maybe your eyes that allow you to see, your voice that allows you to communicate, you can be thankful for music, for the sun in your skin that makes you feel good and warm, for the meal you just had that was delicious, you can thank for certain people in your life… for so many things!!! Life is so freaking awesome 🙂 our planet is amazing
