Hello dear SP friends,
thank you so much for taking the time to watch the videos, I like to share something which I found very funny.
When sitting down reflecting on what to write like now, I sometimes struggle with what to type and before joining SP I had never written a blog. I am surprised that I am here and now doing this and just hope that you find it interesting.
Today I have thought about how our words can and do influence our moods. I am becoming much more aware of how the more I focus on moaning about this and that the worse I feel. Or if I am constantly around people who are complaining, I am pulled into their misery and sometimes even make it worse.
I learn so much from my beautiful adopted sista who has multiple sclerosis, and over the 17 years that I have known her, slowly I have seen her adapt to her changing body which no longer is able to walk, or move. BUT nothing stops her, she always looks at her glass has half full and travels all over the world. She no longer can use her left hand, but instead focuses on using her right hand, and constantly gives praise to the rest of her body.
She now has carers but even if it takes her 3 hours to pull herself out of bed, she does it. She goes to the gym and works on the parts of her body that she can strengthen.
My dear friend sings like an angel and she works voluntary in a hospice. She has an amazing life story and I often encourage her to write her autobiography so everyone could be inspired by her. I will be encouraging and know that when the time is right she will.
So although I have detracted a bit she teaches me that words are truly powerful and so are our thoughts. She begins her day with great gratitude and focuses on what she can do not what she can not do.
I am blessed to know her and learn so much from her. Each week I remind her what a wonderful person she is.
HAVE A GREAT DAY
PEACE AND LOVE
