It’s not often I cite Biblical passages, perhaps because I feel blasphemous because I don’t read the Good Book nearly enough. A passage (Mark 6: 30-32) came through in an email the other day. It is a passage about Jesus looking for and seeking solitude. The email also contained the following information that spoke to me as I reflect on my new normal, my new life as a person with M.S.
(a) Make a list of the things that only you can do, then delegate the rest or let them go;
(b) Learn to take small steps and celebrate small accomplishments;
(c) Don’t allow the stuff that’s still undone, to undo you;
(d) Strive for balance; don’t become addicted to what you enjoy;
(e) Don’t compare yourself with others; work at your own pace;
(f) Take time for the people who matter, otherwise you’ll lose them.
