I think it’s time for me to take a break from focusing on MS. I say that because even though I am all about not letting it stop me, it actually does when I think about it too much.. Remember those sayings like:
You become what you think about.
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” Napoleon Hill once said.
“The mind is everything. What you think, you become,” Buddha taught,
Well I don’t want to become Multiple Sclerosis or any disease for that matter. I have no intention of doing that, so what if, just maybe, I spent the next month focusing on something other than MS – not writing about it – or complaining about it – or letting it get me down in the dumps.?
I wonder if I go on an MS fast, what will I feel like at the end of the month.
True it is November 2nd, so I missed a day, but I am going to give it a go. 29 days without the letters coming out of my mouth, pen or keyboard! I am going to be MS free.
So here is the question, without my faithful companion to talk about, what will I focus on this month? The world is so big and colorful and bright, the air is feeling balmy and clear, the people on the street all offer different types of expressions, what have I been missing?
And now that I am replacing two letters in my brain, I need to think of something, one thing that I will work on this entire month and give it as much attention as I do the disease. I will look at groups to join about it, people to engage with that are involved in it, and find a whole new tribe of folks who know nothing about what it is to live with the Monster.
Yes that is what I am going to do all month. I haven’t decided on what that focus will be just yet, after all it is NANOWRIMO so I could use it to write a novel, but I am just not ready for that this year, I could work on my spiritual evolution, that always needs some attention, or I could concentrate on a way to make a difference in this world. Even with my limitations, even though I am only a regular woman, I can focus on something that will help others and help create positive change.
When I get back to you I will tell you what my focus for the month will be.
