This morning my daughter told me, “I need some “me time” so I’m taking a walk in the park, got some coffee and than I can face the anxieties my life has.”
Myasthenia Gravis makes us refocus on things in a different way. Our “Me Time” has to evolve into something we can do. The important thing is never giving up trying to reshape our life.
Let’s say I can’t jog in the morning, but maybe I can walk.
Let’s say today I can’t walk without help, than I’ll sit in a nice comfortable chair to appreciate the little things in life and the wonderful sounds we can hear in a park.
Let’s say that today I can’t sit straight for long periods of time, than let me sit up on my bed and listen to my favorite tunes or read a magazine or book.
Myasthenia brings good and bad days and we can’t just wish the bad ones away.
I believe we can do most of the things we love in life, just with a little twist to them.
Negativism brings nothing good, it’s much better to stay on the positive side of things.
Like Mother Teresa once said, “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.”
So my dear friends, rekindle your love for “me time” we still have the abilities inside of us to live our lives the best we can. The only difference is that we have to reshape things to fit our realities. It’s not hard after a while, you just need to believe in yourself.
Thanks for keeping me company in this path we call Myasthenia Gravis. It’s not about the journey, but about all we can learn each step of the way.
