Always Be Humble

When going through you day, specially when your feeling bad, it’s hard to think about nothing but yourself. One starts to thinking they are the only ones that are living with Meniere’s & you just want it to stop. Well as hard as it is in the moment we must not forget to the be humble & patient. There is always someone who is having a harder time than you. Being patient for me is just to calm down, not freak out & wait for it to pass. I know it’s really hard but the more stress you create the worse you will feel. For me one best things is finding a great support group. One has to have a chance to vent & let others help you up. You will also find out your not alone. I know I’ve mentioned support groups before but I feel it’s really important. To sit alone & dwell on what is happening at that time can make you very depressed. I know that from experience. I normally pray for the strength to stay calm and remind myself that Jesus suffered so much more on the cross & he did it all for us. Then vent on one of my group pages. The comments I get back always make me feel better.

So try finding a good support group to help you during the bad times & in turn you will help someone else without even knowing it.

Hope everyone has a great Friday!

We Can All Help Others

In today’s world there seems to be so much negative things around. If we try to understand it can make one really depressed. It also doesn’t help when one has a disease that nobody gets it. But instead of complaining we should try to be the solution. There are many things we can do that don’t cost a dime. Sometimes people feel the only way to help others is to donate money. One of the simplest things to do is just smile at others. You would be amazed at the positive response you get back. Another thing you can do is open a door for an elderly person. Now women, you can do it just as easy as men can. I was going into a store & I notice two older ladies several feet behind me. Instead of just walking in I waited & let them go first. The look on their faces was priceless. It was as if I made their day. Another thing one can do is pay attention to people in the grocery store. There are a lot of people that are in motorize scooters than have a hard time getting up. Instead of just walking by, ask them if you need help.There is one thing that would cost you a stamp or two but would mean the world to them. Send a short letter or postcard to a person in the Military that is overseas. So many are away from home & when the mail person comes around they get nothing. There are also some churches that gather shoe boxes of little items that one would normally have at home but can’t get where they are stationed. There usually is a list of items that they can & can’t have. So make sure to check that first.

Now you don’t have to help just people, many animals need our help. It could be as simple as parking off the side to move a turtle out of the road. Or instead of throwing out your food, you can feed it to strays or birds. With all the construction many animals need our help more than ever. They are loosing their homes to us. Now if you see an animal that might harm you, call your local wildlife office & have them send someone out to move the animal to a safer location.

Also if you are on any social media sites you can spread the word about certain charities. It helps to get the word out about what they are doing to help others. You can also start a support group. For me it’s two Meniere’s Disease Facebook groups. Just having a save place to talk to others about something you have in common can help. If you are interesting here are the sites

So I challenge you all to do at least one thing for a person or animal. Believe me you will feel so much better after you did it.
