Sometimes bad things happen that are actually blessings in disguise.
A seemingly bad thing was that I got a disease (MS) that took away a lot of my skills and caused me to just sit. Before MS I used to push myself to my limit every day and never give myself a break. Relaxing was something I never did. (At bedtime I’d be so exhausted that I’d practically be asleep by the time my head hit the pillow!)
Pushing myself to my limit is still what I continue to do but now I know when to stop. A blessing of having MS is that I gently allow myself to enjoy a bit of down time. In other words MS taught me to relax.
I’m glad to learn from my trials. I love looking back and recognizing good things that come from bad. (Beauty risen from ashes.) At first my trial of MS threw me for a loop but it was exactly what I needed.
