10 Years Ago Today

I wondered what this entry would be like when I wrote 5 Years Ago Today. Now I'm here and the sentiments expressed in that blog entry are just as true today as they were in 2008. 

It's been ten years since I was officially diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Even though I was diagnosed on Friday 13th, I decided my life with this disease wouldn't give credence to that dark omen.

I can honestly say that I am now internally happier, healthier, more positive, more determined, and ever more thankful. I've been given many gifts. 

The initial nudge I received from the Divine has most certainly come true. The prompting I received ten years ago was this: 

make your body as healthy as it 
can be 
and you will be as blessed as 
you need to be 

The definition of "body", for me, has always included the mind and soul. 

The only real struggle I have really had over these last ten years has been understanding what it means to be "as blessed as you need to be." 

I am pretty sure I will spend the rest of my life coming to understand this concept a little better. Maybe I might even understand it by the time I meet my Maker. Until then, I strive to continue to make my body as healthy as it can be. 

At this point, I would like to inform my readers that I currently have my water bottle raised in the gesture of a toast (grin). Cheers! We are all very blessed people. The most important thing I wish everyone to know is that God loves us and knows us. You are beautiful just as you are.
