“I have some issues I must deal with,” she said.
This Odd Sock just stood there nodding his mammoth, brain-case in agreement like a bobbing-head doll.
I wasn’t nodding because I agreed she had issues—it was more of a nod of empathy. I could relate to her situation because I too have issues (shocking as you thought I was perfect!).
I have issues like YOU have issues.
Sure, most of us reading this dribble have multiple sclerosis, that’s a given.
But MS just happens to be an issue “side-order” on your buffet of life.
There are so many other problems we may be dealing with, our buffet is large enough to make Golden Corral envious!
Besides MS, many of us have other health issues that we contend with each day (I for one have an itchy rash that..ah..um…just forget it).
Employment issues, debt, relationships, family problems, car repairs, marital issues, housing, doctor bills, addictions…the list can go on and on.
Collectively, these issues can loom larger than Snooki’s bar tab!
But my friend had the right perspective.
She said she would tackle one issue at a time. That’s all she can do.
Really, that’s all EACH of us can do. Just take on one problem at a time. Deal with each individual hurdle as best we can–and move on to the next one.
What perspective do you take in dealing with everything in your life?
Share the method to your madness as your words may be the solution someone else has been searching for!
Keep in mind—we are only human. And some of us are just Odd Socks!
