Living Our Best Lives – indulgences

I don’t need to remind anyone who lives with a chronic illness that our lives have restrictions, and for many of us, this includes not just physical ones but also what we are able to consume.

So, my question for you this month is, what food or drink do you indulge in that brings you happiness.

As always, thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by and join in the discussion. Each of you is amazing and I so enjoy interacting and learning from you.

living your best life possible – choices

Almost every single person who is diagnosed with a chronic illness is forced to give up something.  And if we are to be deeply honest, it is usually a bucket filled with somethings.  It sucks, there is no other way around it.  But, this doesn’t mean that our lives are not worth just as much as they were before,  things are just different.

Sometimes we are forced to give up something after our diagnosis and sometimes we choose to give up things that we believe will make a positive impact in our lives.

So, my question for the week is, What is one thing that YOU have chosen to give up that has had a positive impact on your life?

Thank you so very much for sharing!

Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas – On a Budget

Raising a family of 6 on a budget, I understand the stress that Christmas can create, a time when we feel the urge to overdo everything: gifts, parties, meals, and decorations. Of course, all of these activities and preparations cost money and can distract everyone from the real reason for the season.

Last year I wrote a book that lists many of the ways that I celebrated the holiday season as I raised my children on a tight budget –  Frugal Seeds 101 Ways to Celebrate the Holiday Season on a Budget The book can be read FREE with KindleUnlimited and is available on Amazon in e-book and  paperback.

I would be humbled if you would take a moment to check it out, thank you.

Hello wonderful humans, I hope today is treating you well.

My question for you this week is a simple one.  Although I try to keep things upbeat, I have learned that one of the ways to heal to the best of our ability is to accept the present situation and go from there.

So, my question for you today is,  If you were given the chance to do ONE THING that you are no longer are able to do, what would it be, and have you found a suitable replacement?

I know for many of us, how we can spend our perfect day may have changed over the years.  Even if the activities that we can participate in have changed, we can still enjoy OUR lives to the fullest, especially when we are having a good day!  So my friends, my question for you this week is, “Describe how you would spend your perfect day?”

~ Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment.  I hope today is treating you well.  

living our best life – change

Change, such a small word with so many connotations, and a word that those of us with chronic illness can relate to on many levels.  Yes, change is a part of life no matter who you are, and lately all of us have been going through at least some minimal changes in our daily lives.

 

My question for you this week is, “What is one way that your life has changed since the pandemic started and has this change had a positive or negative impact on your living situation?”

 

~ Thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by and and respond to this week’s question.  Please know that I am praying for all of you and I wish the very best for each and every one of you.
