With everything that’s going on around the world since the election, I am seeing lots of emotions and stress everywhere. I even felt it a little once the election was over too. Although it has been a frustrating road for many people, I have chosen not to let myself react to all that’s happening around me.
I’ve worked hard to better understand my life with Sjögren’s syndrome these last few years and have to choose how to adjust to situations as they come up. Politics. Enough said. That’s about the extent of my conversation with anyone. Haha! I understand the need to vote and the difference one candidate can make over the other…..but this election I have seen tempers fly, voices raised and even friends arguing. Wow! It has been one heck of an election and is causing some chaos all over the world.
I have been sitting back and watching everything that’s happening and how the world is revolving around me. I will admit the current situation has had me thinking about a lot lately ( I think more than any other election ever). I’m not very vocal about my thoughts and choices but I do evaluate the situation at hand, quietly.
I’m moving on in my life…..continuing to raise awareness, provide resources and support and take care of myself. The health and wellness of those living with an autoimmune disease is priority and we need to remember what’s truly important in our lives. My focus and motivation to live healthy and be happy is what I am working towards and helping to make a difference in many lives is still my goal.
Less stress is the way I choose to live each day and politics or not I will continue on my merry way……
Learning to make adjustments in life is hard. It has been an uphill battle from day one for me and the benefits and life lessons have been so valuable! Struggling to understand why and how of this disease and me……..how did I get chosen to live with this autoimmune disease? There are some questions that will never get answered and I have accepted my life as it is now. Just like the current situation.
We have a new president coming into office and whether anyone truly understands the why and how of what is happening, we need to accept it. This is how I plan to move forward with this election. Life goes on…
START EACH DAY WITH A GRATEFUL HEART!
Please remember everyone’s body is different and unique. Always discuss any areas of concern about your autoimmune disease with your doctor.
Hugs to all…..You can do it!
Don’t be afraid of failure. If you never try, you will never succeed.
