Pamper your MS today. It's been working hard.




But it is difficult, isn't it?
I was supposed to attend a meeting at a local post office today to get information about obtaining new passports for my family. The content of the meeting sounded really interesting and my husband and I have talked often about updating our travel vouchers and getting one for our son. Even in these days of terrorist threat and airport dangers, we realize that travel is inevitable and often necessary. So, I agreed to attend this Passport Fair to educated us on the how's.

Well, after re-reading the newspaper advertisement for the event this morning, I realized that, though the Fair sounded interesting, I really did not need to remove myself from my home today in order to obtain a renewed passport. Passports are issued every day with out the assistance of a public gathering. And.....we do not plan on leaving the country in the foreseeable future....if ever!

So, why would I even entertain the thought of getting all dolled up (aka putting on clean underwear) to leave the house when it really wasn't necessary.

Message: Prioritize the important things. And the important people.
Today is MY day. And I will not waste it explaining why it is so.

Have a good one,
Lisa

Riding the MS broom

Do you ever feel like the ultimate witchy woman? That is actually a rhetorical question because I know you do. We all do whether we mean it or not. And guess what? We have a right to feel that way. Our brand of broom is a touch one to ride. That is why I truly believe that our supreme master, who ever/whatever that may be, doesn't throw us more than we can catch.

MSers (I read recently that this is an inappropriate way in which to refer to individuals with multiple sclerosis. The source of this judgement obliviously does not live with the disease. MS Warriors are far less offended by such a label than that.) are strong individuals who thrive on finding a purpose, a solution, a balance.

We are dependent on our co-pilot Common Sense. Care Givers are a beautiful addition to our lives, but many MSers (I did it again!) are not fortunate to have someone to clean our broom and dust off the daily spider webs that clutter the  cognitive mess of our brains. I learned that long before MS becam…

Yoga Burn gives new incentive to my morning routine.

I am not one much for online shopping indulgences, but a couple of weeks ago I allowed myself the rare treat of purchasing the Yoga Burn program advertised on Face Book. This morning I completed week one of the monthly scheduled routine and I even took time to meditate under the guidance of Yoga instructor Zoe Bray Cotton.

Laugh if you must, but I really, really, enjoyed the meditation exercise. I realize this is a solitary activity and I will never practice this in front of husband and/or son. 

I felt wonderful afterword, though. So at peace and relaxed. I always knew I was a Zen Goddess at heart.

What I really love about this program is that it "is a comprehensive online yoga course directed toward women only."  The older I get, the more I appreciate anything to do with "for women only". Weird, huh?

Zoe' voice is so very soft and inviting. As she leads me through my morning poses, I really feel as though she is my new morning bestie. Of course, I have only comple…

This Writer's Euphoric Journey

It is November and that means National Novel Writing Month. I participate every year. As always, I am behind on my writing goal for the month: WRITE 50,000 WORDS  IN 30 DAYS. 

With only two days to go, I still need 10,000 to finish. 

So...I will see you here again on Wednesday or at the end of my journey of 50,000 words. Until then, breathe.
