My Journey

I am a 57 year old retired/disabled teacher. I have multiple sclerosis, so I can't get around as much as I would like. I have used that as an excuse, but now I've decided to do something about it. I want to be as healthy as possible for my granddaughter. I'm tired of waiting for the other shoe to fall and end up back in a wheelchair. I'm going to LIVE....and be healthy doing so. MS is not going to rule me anymore!

I know M.S. is a serious illness, so I applaud your hard work to be healthy. I remember reading some years ago an article in Yoga Journal about a man who'd been found to have M.S. and not given much hope. He said he went to several doctors who told him he'd be in a wheelchair. He then found a Yoga Master who told him he could stay healthy. As a result he went to India and studied Yoga with BKS Iyengar and he'd been an instructor for 22 years. He still had to deal with M.S. but he walked everyday on his own two legs.

NEVER discourage ANYONE
who CONTINUALLY makes PROGRESS
no matter HOW slow.

- - PLATO - -


Always remember that a step in the RIGHT direction, no matter HOW small, is STILL a step in the RIGHT direction! Don't be discouraged by SLOW progress for progress is progress no matter it's speed! As long as you focus each day on getting better & on moving forward, you will continually be moving in the direction of CHANGE, in the direction of HOPE & in the direction of SUCCESS! Each day brings reason to CELEBRATE!!! Choose to LIVE in the MOMENT!!! Choose to APPRECIATE each & every step that brings you closer to the BIG goal! YOU are STRONG, you are CAPABLE & you are DOING this & THAT is ALL that matters!!!

Stay Positive,

Jes
