It’s all in the attitude… “Everything’s gonna be alright”

There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. That little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.Robert Collier

I met an amazing woman yesterday, full of energy and positive attitude. You couldn’t walk away from the meeting without feeling energy and motivation. You think, “sure, nothing bad has happened to her”, oh, how wrong you are. She and her husband have both suffered terrible injuries this year, but they are both recovering and looking forward to their next adventure. Getting back on the bicycle so to speak. She is the type of person I hope to be, someone that inspires you to push forward and help others, to be uplifting. We all go through difficult times in life, the difference is how you come out at the end. Full of self pity, or drive and motivation to push through and get to the other side a better person, we all have the ability to make this choice. I’ve been to a couple of MS support group meetings and I must say, those were the most depressing few hours of my life. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. They all seemed to be drinking the kool-aide, and just accepted what the doctors told them. They didn’t have any drive or fight to find other answers. I can’t have those types of people around me, I’ve made the choice to fight this disease, it’s not taking me down without kicking and screaming. So, let’s just see who is still standing in a few years, I’m putting my money on me.

A lot of times people look at the negative side of what they feel they can’t do. I always look on the positive side of what I can do.

    I can not fathom what it would be like to have MS. But I can appreciate people who are willing to take it on head first.. Attitude is everything! Keep up the fight. Brooke is one of my friends and we are soooo proud of her. Not surprised at the course she has taken. But super proud and happy for her! Will be following your success story with prayers and good thoughts.
