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?
Bless you for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits. I have decided to take a summer break from blogging as my oldest daughter will be leaving for college in 6 weeks and I want to spend a lot more time away from my computer. Time flies………don’t let it pass you by.
Thinking about regrets, it is my guess that every person on this Earth could verbalize at least one thing they wished they had or had not done. It is also my belief that having regrets in life is just part of being human. We live, we learn, and if we never had a regret then I am not sure we would be truly living and/or learning. We make the very best decision we can at the time and hope and pray for the best.
Now we know we can’t go back to re-create our past, but we can think about our future selves. So my question for you today is, “What is something you will regret if you do not complete/accomplish/do in your lifetime?”
~ Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit and comment. Your presence here is a blessing to me and so many others.
With 2020 just around the corner, I have been thinking about blog posts for next year. One of my goals, besides keeping the Living Our Best Life weekly questions, is to review at least 6 books that are written by an author who is chronically ill.
Not only do I know what it is like to live with multiple chronic illnesses, I also know how much work goes into writing and self-publishing a book and the enormous amount of effort it takes to promote your publications. So next year I would like to help out my fellow spoonies and promote their work.
If you would like me to do a review of your book, that I will purchase, please leave me a message in the comment section. The book does not have to be about illness, but the author must live with at least one chronic ailment.
I look forward to reading your work!

The Holidays, even if you budget for them, have a way of putting a strain on your wallet. While my kids were younger, I worked very hard to make sure they didn’t notice our limited budget by keeping Christmas a fun and active time while remaining focused on the true meaning of this holy season.
