Thirty Days of MS Awareness Coming Your Way. Ideas welcome.

Awareness – Together We Are Stronger


Last march I committed to posting a blog post every day in March to raise awareness of MS. Although I have yet to see much information in the media about this for 2017, I am taking it upon myself to repeat my commitment.

Starting Wednesday, March 1, I will be posting a blog every day in the on the of March. That's  lot of planning and posting, friends, but it is my mission. Since March is my birth month and the green month of St. Patrick's Day, this ids a gift to my self.

I am looking for ideas for my daily post. Although this blog was originally created to share my journey with the MonSter, I have been known to include a variety of topics...I mean, life isn't ALL about MS, right? 

So far, I plan to discuss books and share some of my reviews. If you follow me at all you know of my passion for the written word. But, I am not the authority on books, so I welcome any suggestions. In fact, if anyone is interested in forming an on-line book club right here on Lisa's Page, I am ALL FOR IT!

I will also be following my MS in relationship to the changing season. Spring always presents issues of allergies, over the counter remedies, and good ol' West Virginia sinus issues as our bodies acclimate to what is supposed to be Earth's rebirth into warmer temps. How does this affect your MS?

Of course, I will be talking about my knitting...or lack there of. Yesterday I was right on track with my latest project. (I am knitting  socks on straight needles...hmmm.) So excited to count the correct about of stitches on my needle. So thrilled to be doing something different. Anxious to share my first sock with bestie Jodi. And then...it happened...I counted again. I am still looking for those two lost stitches. I swear my cat stole them right out from under me. She's like that.

And, then there is the issue of camping. I LOVE to camp in Bemis, WV, and the time is drawing near when my family will be yearning for those mountain breakfasts, camp fires, and fresh stream fishing. Ahh...Are we there yet? So, I want to hear about your little peace of Earthly paradise because Bemis is definitely mine.

I also like to do a bit of research, and am more than willing to put my librarian skills to work for you. Give me your MS questions and I will enthusiastically put my undergrad degree to work.

Wow! That's a lot of writing to do. I had better get busy. So...

There will be no post on Monday. Gearing up for the big reveal on Wednesday.

Have a blessed weekend and I will see you then.

Love and Light,
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.
