I think I was in an eighth-grade science course when we studied biorhythms (albeit briefly, though perhaps not briefly enough for a science class but, hey, it was the 1970s). I’ll not go into the plotting of the physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, and other cycles other than to say that one hopes to find a time when as many parts of the biorhythms are at a peak. That came to mind as two beautiful aspects came together on Friday morning.
We all know there can be "good days" (or at least "better than other" days) with multiple sclerosis. I’ve been having my share of challenges these past few weeks.
Friday seemed to be a bit better on a lot of fronts as I did my morning inventory. It was also a damned lovely day here on the western edge of my island.
I seemed to have a bit of energy, I was down a notch or two in my LWM(3)S numbers, and (and this is a big and) the summer weather was bright and warm, but a cooling sea breeze and a few puffy clouds made for an incredible August morning here.
What to do with it?
On my less than great days, I make a list of the things that I would rather be doing than slogging around with a big ol’ sack of MS all day. It might be a silly list to some people, but not to me.
Weeding the garden in the shade of the old ash tree, baking a couple of loaves of wheaten bread (one to eat and another to give away to a neighbor), walking the dogs to our little marina park to watch them run about in the tide, having a cup of tea and a fresh scone at a favorite little café, going to the farmer’s market and chatting with the local producers (YES, that’s a Friday thing here!), perhaps a nap under the sycamore trees with the two dogs at my side…
I say we take the days that aren’t so good and jot down a wish list – an attainable wish list – of things we would like to do and that we can do. Tuck that list into your drawer for the good days. It might seem a bit dreamy, but even put down a few things for the wonderful happenstance when an MS good day meets a good weather day.
Those will be our “Great Days.”
Our puppy, Maggie, was spayed on Thursday, so splashing at the strand wasn't ticked off the list, but a good book can pair well with either that kip under the trees or the scone and cuppa… what the hell, on a day like Friday, why not both?!
How about it – do you have a “good day” list? Sound like a good idea? What might be on your list? Nothing too mundane as it’s whatever YOU want to do the next time you’ve got the energy.
Wishing you and your family the best of health.
