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!

Living Your Best Life – one thing….

Hello all you wonderful people who chose to stop by today, it is always so good to see you again. It seems if the weeks are coming around a lot faster these days, or it is just me?!

Here in The United States we will be celebrating Thanksgiving next week. This time of year is my absolute favorite, the beautiful trees, the cooler (but not cold) weather which appeals to my being as I am able to spend more time out-of-doors.

So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I was wondering if you can think of one positive thing that has come as a result of your chronic illness?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, it is such an honor for me to join in your discussions.

Hey everyone, it is so good to see today!  I sure do appreciate you taking time to visit.  

As the old saying goes that there are only two guarantees in life, death and taxes.  Money is something that we must have in order to live in the world at this moment in time.  Life is expensive, especially for those of us who live with chronic illness so my question for all of you wonderful people is,  “What is one way that has helps you balance all of your financial demands?”

Thank you so very much for stopping by and taking time to comment.  I feel blessed to be able to share and learn from all of you.

Hello wonderful human beings.

My question for you today is a simple one.  Although I try to keep things upbeat, I have learned through a lot of trial and error that in order for me to heal to the best of my ability, I must first accept my present situation and go from there.  So, my question for you today is, “What has been the most difficult thing for you to accept on your chronic journey?”

 

~ Thank you for stopping by to visit and your willingness to share part of your journey.

With all the stressful things going on around the world, it takes a huge toll on our minds and therefore our bodies.  Those of us who live with chronic illnesses have very legitimate reasons to be concerned.  But instead on dwelling on the scary, we are going to focus on one postive thing we can do today to bring about contentment, joy, relaxation, or any feeling that is the opposite from the ball of stress you may have rolling around inside you.

So, my question for today is, “What is one thing you can do this very day to allow yourself to feel at ease in the world, even for a little while?”

 

~ I am praying for every single one of you beautifully amazing people, now go be amazing, even if it is from the four walls of your room.
