Positive? Not Always…

Tripping Through Treacle

I try and stay positive, I really do. When I shared that I’d recently been confirmed as having secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) on my blog and on Instagram, everybody was absolutely brilliant, giving me so much support and praising me for working hard to keep going, despite the dark diagnosis. And I am generally positive. As regular readers will know, I do try to keep as healthy as I can be through diet, exercise, and meditation and I truly think that doing that helps to keep my mood stable to some degree. However, as positive as I can be, I can also be downright miserable and grumpy and sad and scared (just ask my husband). It’s not something I like to share too much on social media; it makes me feel so much better when I share uplifting content rather than depressing content. But that’s not the true face…

Blog Networking: 9/14/17

Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most.  But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog.

Back on the Path

I’m a planner. I like planning things out, making my “to-do” list, and checking things off. There’s only one problem — life (and fibromyalgia) doesn’t care about my planning and “to-do” list. That has become quite evident in the last week and a half.

I spent Labor Day weekend and the first two days of last week going back and forth to the hospital, basically acting as patient advocate for a family member and a go-between for family/caregivers and the hospital staff (I’m the only family member who lives in the area). I was happy to do it; there are so many things I can’t do now, I’m always happy to do the things I can. It does take a toll on my body though, and honestly, by Tuesday, I was completely worn out. The only thing keeping me going was prayer.

On Wednesday and Thursday, we were busy…

Two Unlike Poles… Attracted

Dream Desire Achieve

Searching, pondering,
Where do I belong?

Then I realise,
I belong to You,

Like a magnet we are,
The sinner and the Saviour,

One notorious,
The Other Revered,

Two unlike poles,
Divinely attracted,

Drawn to each other,
By the cords of the Saviour’s love.

Daily Prompt: Magnet, Magnetic

Biasini Speaks: Look At Me Go!

HorseAddict

Well, Dear Humans, I think many of you will know that my human, Ma Leueen, is away visiting her offspring, her “son” as she calls him in another country. She has taken my friend David with her.  So, this means that Coach Belinda is riding me and also Trainer Lynsey.  With Trainer Lynsey I do some fabulous stuff; not dressage AT ALL!  Now with Coach Belinda I do dressage and I work VERY hard because I want to show her I can do well. But with Trainer Lynsey we just have FUN!

She takes me up to the big grass field at the back and we warm up and then she canters me out into the forest loop and then back up the hill, onto the grass field and across it to the loop again. Here….take a look!

As you can see in that video at the end I go…

One Minute Recipes – Skinny Microwave Banana Mug Cake

The Purple Almond

For this week’s morning videos, I’m going to focus on “mug recipes”. While I don’t typically advocate using the microwave, sometimes it’s warranted, due to lack of time. For today’s recipe, I have a healthy “Banana mug cake”.  If you can’t have nuts, swap the almond butter for SunButter (Sunflower seed butter). If you’re like me, and can’t eat oats or grains, use Cassava Flour (NOT tapioca flour).

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Let us stop for a moment to pray and meditate.
