Pathways

Hello…after a long time away from writing.
It seems to be that my last vice –¬† chocolate – is now causing too many pains and symptoms/reactions to my nervous system. It has been my only intake of caffeine however I bow to the demands of my MS.

My MS is on it’s own path…a slightly downhill path and so I must roll with it. Sometimes I try to stop it; fight it; liaise with it or even try to understand it as a disease…however my cognition needs to save this energy and just listen to the signs that my ruler provides me with. We must become a valuable team and coordinate together. No fight…just more and more peace. Be at one. Become one.

I’ve been trying to fathom how to redefine my life and my journey so to include satisfaction; sense of achievement; purpose and direction. However I may be starting to see that my journey is in today. Today is the day which I am living in and this is where my body needs to be in order to function with greater ease.
Today I was thinking about others whom may be drifting in their lives…through relationships or jobs or avoidances of other kinds. I’ve never been comfy with drifting…I’m a goal setter. Perhaps my new goal needs to be drifting?!

Having health conditions teaches us so many things. It teaches our closest people too. Listen to yourself and be on your own side.

A Change Of Tune

It’s been a while since my last blog entry and whilst that time has been surfing by I have been feeling better and better.

I’ve started reading an intro to the Alexander Technique however only a few pages and I am already thinking a bit more about posture and how my different muscles are working and being utilised.

So, after my awaking experience that I wrote about in my last blog I have come to discover so much joy. It seems that what I naturally discovered was when in a peaceful space, to review useful stages of your past whilst staying in the present. This exercise can guide us onwards.

One thing that is standing out to me is that when I get a pain I then acknowledge it and relax. The result is that I still have pain however I am easing my muscles and my mind in my responses. My nutritional supplement intake is going well and I believe that by taking the copper to ease the absorption of the zinc this then works as a team. Certainly my supplement intake is keeping things balanced. Having sorted out the garden here I am turning to other forms of physical exercise by this week starting back on the stationary bicycle. I seem to keep busy with every day jobs.

I’ve started to feel I’ve a clearer thought process and my memory is still varied however I’m relaxed about this. This all makes for a happier mind and soul…and body.

So, recently I turned into another decade of my life and had an amazingly lovely birthday. What’s more I actually feel younger than I have done in about twenty years. Having gone through some very low patches in my mind this year I feel so appreciative to have this good time…for however long it lasts. Yes, I feel human!

Last week was a ground breaking moment for me…I got the buses into a town where I had a meeting with my last voluntary place of work. I’m returning there again, after a four year break. In fact I even trained the manager to set up a social network site and have been invited to their Christmas party next week. My sensory processing has vastly improved whilst I’ve been practising the techniques taught to me at the start of the year. So this means I can now tolerate being around people and noise/movement etc…which of course raises the happiness levels. Anyways…after I went to the voluntary centre I then went to my partner’s place of work and then out to a busy venue for an after work Christmas meal. Lots of people and noise and fun. Success! It was a great experience for myself and for my ever supportive partner. And I felt fine the next day…and five days later am still feeling good.

So I wish you lots of what I’m having so that you also get to change your life and view things with benefit…whatever your need or desire.

Long may we learn from our health…listening to our internal messages and taking peaceful moments to absorb the wonders of how we can improve ourselves. Be yourself and you will be eternally happy.
