  2. Love this Cat! I know I had self pity when I was first diagnosed with EDS 12 yrs ago. I thought I wouldnt be able to do any of the activities I loved- ie biking, climbing, etc. I think there was a why me in there too! I do however feel that many people experience life hardships and it was persistance and not wanting to be bedridden that made me push forward. I think attitude and gratefulness are a part of that .
    Wonderful read.

  4. When I was in my twenties, a wise woman once told me that life is all about the choices we make and how that determines who we become and how that creates the path that will determine our future. Those words have stayed with me for nearly thirty years. It was those words that helped me through some of the toughest times and darkest places in my life. This blog was a gentle reminder of wise words once spoken and fond memories of the woman that spoke them. Thank you, Cat.

    1. Big hugs and yes, even though life can and does throw hard stuff at us – we always have that choice in how we respond. x

  5. Terrific message, Cat! I think when life hands you a lemon, you’ve got to look at all the positives in your life, and then maybe that lemon doesn’t seem so bad. Always something to be grateful for, I always say to myself.

    1. Cheers Gwen and I totally agree with you – there is always something to be grateful for!
