One of the most important things I have learnt from MS is that everything happens for a reason. To paraphrase the words of Eckhart Tolle; Life will throw at you whatever you need to wake up. It is up to you to do the rest. If you don’t take control and fix what is wrong with the way you are living, how can you expect yourself to recover?
MS is not the end of the world, it is a wake up call – listen to it! It has empowered me to take control. It has reminded me that I am alive and that I need to respect my body by not filling it with junk food or thoughts. Feed your body with the fuel it needs to repair itself and to maintain optimum health. The thoughts we think and emotions we feel are just as important and capable of doing a lot of damage. We need to calm the mind and learn to take life in our stride. Stress has enormous consequences on your body’s health, learn to deal with it properly and avoid it wherever possible. Stop taking everything personally, try not to over-think it all, just let yourself be and enjoy the present, don’t forget that it is all we have.
