I recently participated in a book collaboration project. In the book, Absolute Will, 20 other women and I from 7 different countries linked arms to bring the readers our most vulnerable moments, our struggles, our heartbreaking life events and yet tell them in such a way as to INSPIRE and EMPOWER them beyond perhaps what they even believed was possible. The book is available as an eBook and paperback on Amazon.
My chapter is MS stands for Mindset Shift. I write about being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in the first year of my dream job; teaching high school education. I left teaching 10 years later and went on long-term disability in 2007. Despite, grieving the life I lost I have learned to live with MS each day as the best version of myself. My morning mantra is - - I will begin today as my best self. If for some reason this doesn't last I will not give up because there is always tomorrow. Tomorrow beings a new day with new possibilities. As a result, I live a meaningful, purposeful, and joyful life.
