How To Keep Moving Forward When Life Sets You Back
How do we keep moving forward when life sets us back? Sometimes it takes a little while for us to get over our disappointment. It has taken me 6 months to come to terms with this video so I can share one of my most humbling and vulnerable moments with you. I have had Multiple Sclerosis for 25 years now. I know I have told you that I have re-defined MS as Modified Swagger but I have never actually shared video of my swagger with anyone until now.
I was at Obedience class with Jackson in September 2018 and our fantastic trainer Shari Morin-Murphy was taking video of us walking our dogs in between other dogs/owners. The only way I could pull off this training exercise was by using my walker. Although part of me was mortified and upset that I had to use a walker, the other part of me was grateful that I could still walk at all. I was walking like a sloth and dragging my feet behind me but I did it! We ended up celebrating this moment as "A Dose of PositiviDee."
Even though I am mobility challenged, I refuse to let MS stop me from living life to the fullest. Yes - It has taken a while for me to come to terms with the fact that I need to use a walker and a wheelchair but now I am trusting and accepting myself for who I am in this moment. I even went for a photo shoot with Sandra Costello and took my wheelchair and walker with me so she could capture my true spirit and some "Brave Moments."
I have learned that if I stay positive in my most vulnerable and humbling moments, I inspire other people to keep moving forward when life sets them back. Life is going to challenge us but we have the power within us to persevere.
