Focussing On The Positive Things.

Metamorphising of Gaddafi.
By Steve Bell.
The Guardian.

Most of the time I am optimistic but sometimes I get gripped by panic and fear, not surprising being on this MS rollercoaster.

Scary not knowing what will happen next, maybe better that way, rather than knowing precisely what will happen.

I still have to remind myself to live here and now, not with a list that I tick off daily, which function I have lost.

The unpredictable nature of MS keeps me feeling worried, which I do my best to not let it control me.

Focussing on the positive, is my best optlan, while I am conscious, when I am asleep my dreams are generally pleasant.

Sometmes I will wake from a scary one, but that is rare, I think this is because I try to discuss my fears and worries with Richie and write about it.

Certainly helps to stop me wasting valuble time worrying, especially now I am aware of how precious time is.

I have become extremely aware that each day is unique and will never happen twice, an amazing thought.

The weather is not very pleasant again today, typical weather for the beginning of March, on the 17 March I shall be 60, we are going to have a party on the 18         March.

The Guardian gave me a smile... Gaddafi as a cockroach. lol.

I am still tripping about the dog tax! Our Dogs (& Cats)have a tag yearly but it is a license showing they are current with Rabies shot vaccinations.
Gosh I have 6 pets...my "taxes" would stink!
Ive been struggling with the most BIZZARE nightmares lately. Im sure it has to do with stress. Still I hate it!
To think each day is unique and will not happen twice, is indeed, an amazing thought.
I must not take that for granted and live each day to it's fullest.
Thank you Herrad~ for reminiding me that♥
love to you~

Hi Herrad,
Glad you are keeping positive - it'e the best way to be. No use wasting what we have now with worry. Better to have prosecco, right? Tell bawdy jokes? Watch the doggies play tug with each other? Yay to living in the moment!

Hi Gareth,
Thanks for coming by, good to see your comment.

Hi Tracey,
Thanks for your kind words, good to see your comment.

Hi Janis,
The cartoon was good, cats are not taxed here.
Might be good if vaccinations were checked rather than if you have paid the dog tax.
I hope your nightmares go away, agree its stress and maybe grief too.
Take care.

Hi Webster,
Agree yay to being here and now and to Prosecco.
And doggies playing.

Thanks you dear friends for coming by I very much appreciate your visits and comments.
