The media inundates us with global issues, this can be overwhelming to me. I deal with two diseases and the loss of my daughter, the news is so depressing…. this story may be like yours.
Getting down happens. There is much to care about. Getting started, where, what, how? How can I, a woman, wife, mother and citizen make a difference? Is this easier said than done? It occurred to me that making a difference lies right here within me. Healthy, self-care. When I take my medications and watch what I eat I am validating the medical field and common sense. When I partner with my doctor, I may be uplifting them. After all, I am certain, like the rest of us they are watching the news and caring for children, parents, etc. Our hope for a brighter future is in modeling the healthiest ways to those around us. Some call this hope. Without it there isn’t much else.
So, today just once - I choose health. After all is said and done, I just want to make a difference in this world and honor the life I have been given.
