For many, the new year is a time for taking stock of what we've accomplished in the past year and contemplating what we'd like to accomplish in the year ahead. What are your goals for 2015? What will you do to live your best life despite MS?
Share your thoughts below - and check back in throughout the month as several people with MS, including Dr. Terry Wahls, share their approaches to maintaining physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.
Reorganize my life to make living with MS a bit easier. Also to try to become healthier.
For me this coming april will be 2 year's since having being diagnosed. It has been a struggle since then. I use to always make a new year's resolution but since finding out about this illness, I haven't. Their are many things that I have accomplished in the past but this illness has developed and making me a whole new person that I have to adjust to first before making any resolution's. Sorry..if I sound like a wet rag. I'm really not trying to be.
I don't know if I would call this a new year's resolution but this year and the many more days that God bless me to see.. I am beyond thankful and will be the best me than I have been in the past.
Their is always something with this MS. I find it a little hard because I am limited to what I can and can't do but I will try my best on whatever it is. I pray and hope that everyone has an awesome new year... Stephanie
I read a Great saying recently: I am grateful for every morning I wake up. It means the lord hasn't finished with me yet and still has plans for me.
This year I would like to accomplish 365 days:
getting out of bed, washing my face, brushing my teeth, dressing, combing my hair, feeding myself and all those things I use to take for granted, and to remind myself to be greatful for all the helpful thoughts and actions I remember instead of crying about the ones i forget. That the cup is always half full, no matter how small a cup it is.
I will enter 2015 with a sense of grace for the blessings in my life. I have the power of choice that is solely mine. I chose to approach MS as a gift that has made me slow down so I can take in the beauty around me. It has been a gift that has shown me the blessing of a wonderful family that I should never take for granted. It is a gift that has provided me an opportunity to walk in other shoes, it has helped me learn to have more compassion and empathy. It is a gift that has provided me the chance to say thank you to the Lord for his love, has opened my soul to greater faith and has allowed me the opportunity to exercise this power of choice that is bestowed upon me. 2015 is going to be a GREAT year 👍☺️
