''It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult undertaking which, more than anything else, will determine its successful outcome. ''William James

Try not to worry. Try to look at what you're going through as a challenge rather than an obstacle, a time to develop patience. To achieve more objectivity, detach yourself from the struggle. Have confidence in yourself, and realize that you can change your attitude even if you can't change the circumstances.

Look closely at your troubles. Don't let them cause you to give up.

Befriend them and learn from them. Feel them lose their power over you. Allow them to teach you what you want to know and move on..Try not to be afraid.

You're a survivor. You're going to handle this.You're going to find strength you didn't know you had and grace to deal with what ever comes along. Pretty soon, you'll be on the other side, and it's just  a matter of time until you will look back on this time in your life and draw strength from the knowledge that even though the road was rocky, you persevered and carried on.

These are not my words but something I found and thought it was just perfect.
Attitude is everything in life. You can chose your reaction to circumstance even if you can not chose your circumstance.

Think about it~ everyday you are given another chance to make your life better. To look at life as a gift. To know that this is your life and you don't get another chance.

Take some time in the morning as you wake up to a new day to know that you are blessed and you are exactly where you are suppose to be!
Through good times and bad, you CAN do it!
Make your life as happy as you can. It is much more fun to laugh than to cry!~ I know that from experience!!!!

Much love to you this year. I wish you joy and happiness and laughter and family and friends and good food!

  1. Going through my journey with MS, I like to say "I'm positive I have an attitude and they are in the same sentence!" Good luck and you seem to be doing well through this journey. It is a tough one, but I have an aunt who is a 17 year breast cancer survivor and mom who is starting her 11th year cancer free of stage 3 lung cancer! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
