Let go of what you can't change

I really like this quote and it serves as a great reminder for me to think about letting go of stuff I cannot control. But, I will admit, I find it difficult to do this sometimes. Do you find this to be true, too?

Letting go. Exactly how does one do this? I try my best to move through the bad stuff, like fatigue, but sometimes I just have crummy moments, sprinkled with a bit of self-pity. I try to acknowledge these moments and accept that this is just how it will be, for the time being. I try my best (practice to progress, not to be perfect) to look forward to a new day tomorrow. 

I cannot control that I live with Multiple Sclerosis but I can control how I deal with it. Sure, it’s not easy but I must at least try. So, I write, I work, I play, I garden, I shop, I laugh, I photograph, I read, I cycle. These are all things I do that make me happy, that make me forget that I am someone who lives with MS, if even for just a few moments.

So, I guess my way of letting go is turning to things that I enjoy doing, trying to move on with life. How do you get through bad moments during your life with Multiple Sclerosis? How do you let go?

Hope you’re well.


Best always,
Christie

  1. Thanks for your soundbites of inspiration Christie. I personally do not have MS but enjoy learning from people who do, and sharing what I know about research advancements. Here I found a slideshare on stem cell therapy that should slow down progression and bring brighter tomorrows. Hope this helps you and your readers.
