what makes you strong?

Okay again as I am busy "YOU" get to put your thinking caps on again. This is actually fun I must do it more often. The question today is:

What makes "YOU" strong?

Where do "YOU" find your strength?

That is two, but I make the rules so what I type is the rules. As usual no need to reply unless "YOU" want to. There is no need to be embarrassed just to think.

What makes me strong is believing in me and knowing it is against the rules to deliberately hurt\harm myself. Yes, that RULE again.

I find my strength in knowing that there were others before me that have gone through much worse. I am the same species as them, if they could so can I.


This is only Relapsing Remitting ms RRms), I have this and I CAN DO ITso can "YOU"

I am strong for my two daughters, so I can be there for them and so I can be as good of a role model for them as possible. I am strong because of what I learned from my mother. She had high expectations of her two daughters. Also, she lived with MS for 40+ years (had no medication options and was a quadriplegic for the last ten years of her life). In terms of living with a chronic illness, I learned what to do and not to do from her.

Great question ~ what makes "YOU" strong? I find it hard to answer, and I am not sure why. Perhaps it is because I am searching for 'the' answer. So, allow me to somewhat answer that it is my faith, my love of my family, who, in turn, really love me back, and my stubbornness to never ever give up, and always adapt, adapt, adapt to my 'new' challenges.


Attitude is EVERYTHING

Keep Smiling and Stay Strong

And listen to/read what this gentleman, Royce, whom I shall call friend, posts!

I have the strength of those who came before me, the power over what I’ve already been through, and the knowledge from those who have suffered more than I ever will or in ways that I will never know. I find strength in knowing that my weaknesses of mind are temporary, and from the hope that I have for the future.
