Hello everyone it's Fancy1959. I'm writing this post to remind everyone, all 1600 Plus members in this chat room to never give up on your dreams and what you love despite your MS. Where there's a will there is normally a way and if you work hard and if you fight this monster tooth and nail you can achieve your dreams. Even if you have to modify those dreams in order to achieve them. This past weekend we went to O'Bannon Woods in Indiana and camped and rode our horses on the trails there. With the help of my husband and Sons and a handy picnic table or tree or two I was able to ride King. One of our walking horses that we have owned for over a dozen years! It was much easier for me to feel confident, comfortable, and have better balance on a full size horse since that is what I was used to riding for years and years. Dusty Rose, my pony, did great and my husband wound up riding her and loved her smooth gait! We rode on Sunday for about 2 hours and on Monday for slightly over two hours. Was I physically worn out when I was finished, you bet. But it was a great feeling and a great feeling of exhaustion knowing I'd achieved something I hadn't been able to do in almost two years. 🐎🐴🖒😉
I challenged everyone, here and now to safely work toward a dream of yours. When you achieve it or if you've already achieved it let us know and share it with us. This positive reinforcement is part of keeping a good mindset and helping ourselves to feel great about ourselves. Jimeka boost our morale with her fantastic cartoons. Let's each help one another achieve a big smile and feel good about ourselves instead of letting this monster drag us down. Hats off to everyone and I can't wait to hear your adventures and your achievements! 🎩👒 Fight on MS Warriors, fight on!😆👍💪
Great picture! It feels like being on top of a mountain when we find a way to overcome an obstacle. Even when my mountain is more like a molehill.!
