I feel like this single words sums up my ultimate daily goal while living with chronic illness. .
I can not (to an extent) change my illness, I can not change the reactions of other’s to my illness, I can not change what my doctor says/does, or if I will get certain things in life that I want or wish for.
This is a very difficult practice, but one that I have really come to appreciate and respect, because it brings me a great sense of peace when I am just accepting of life’s circumstances as they are and not trying to change things. It brings great peace of mind when living in the midst of chronic illness. .
Here’s to all those with , keeping your S&%# together while everyone else would be loosing it dealing with what you face everyday! .
