Positive > Negative

If you are what you eat, then you definitely are what you think!

I have seen this statement proven over and over again but still we refuse to believe that our negative thoughts can  have a negative impact on our bodies.

Your thoughts are the first step in learning and allowing your self to heal.  

Living with MS is as much a part of our daily lives as breathing. Once you accept this as a matter of fact rather than fighting against an invisible enemy which you have made out to be omnipotent, you have won. 

If you were to wake up each day and the first thought you had was “I feel sick”, I can guarantee you, you will. I am not suggesting that all you have to do is click your heels together three times and all will be well, but simply suggesting that what if starting the day with “I feel good”, could act-as a beacon for your body to follow onto a path of wellness. 

The mind is a powerful thing. Your thoughts are the driver. Pay attention to what you are thinking and saying to yourself for one day and you will be amazed at how often negative thoughts can crowd your mind. 

I have seen this in action first hand with a friend of mine who was recently diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS. She had a great attitude, positive approach to dealing with the new challenges in her life. When her regular walks became harder and she found that some days she could not go outside, she took what she perceived to be, the first step in admitting she was sick. 

She bought a walking stick 

This was just a regular walking stick, but it had magic powers. The power to weaken her self-confidence, crush her self-esteem and plunge her into early throes of depression.

Although it was so obvious to me what prompted her sudden emotional change and outlook on her prognosis, all she could see was the MS Monster hovering over her like a dark cloud. 

The walking stick had the power to change her mindset about who she was and her value to others and her place in society. Her physical abilities had not changed, only the story her mind was telling her. It was a shift in her mindset that had prompted her decline, not the walking aid. 

Our bodies are powered by our mind and our thoughts. 

Watch what you think and see if this first step makes a difference in how you feel, how you approach each new challenge and most importantly, how you begin to heal.

I am strong. 

I am invincible. 

I am beautiful.

Be the writer of your own destiny!

  1. I think this is very true. It is much easier from man, however, to use a Walkingstick, easier to pull it off. I have one that is almost pink in color with reflective stripe surrounded
    A 66-year-old male and I get away with it. People think it’s quite amusing, and young women open doors for me. Much harder for young woman.
