Default Re: Hope it helps others

Very well said Pete. Thank you!

We all have good days and bad days. I allow myself to grieve, and even have a pity party (without sending invitations...) for a time. But I also work hard to not let it consume me. I have ALS. It is what it is. I can't change it. Acceptance has helped me move through this challenge well so far. When I'm trying to move through the bad days, I ask myself, is this (attitude) how I want to spend my time today? Sometimes the answer is yes! Most times it's no. Then I try to accept my feelings, and move towards better ones.

Wishing you peace within the storm.
Margaret
