Do you believe you can make a difference?

Hello Everyone,

I start off my post with a question because I was so moved by watching the inauguration and listening to our new President’s speech. I believe everyone in society has a purpose and somehow makes a difference in one, two, maybe several lives. The key is to find that purpose and accept it, share it and stand by your work and word.

I feel good today and have accomplished some chores. On Sunday I was able to make it to my church, Santa Barbara and attend mass. I had prayed to my Lord to give me the strength to wake up on time, get dressed and attend. Well, he answered my prayer. It was interesting because I am not easily awoken. I do not get restful sleep without some type of medication. So, I am either tossing and turning or taking medications that help me sleep. I have tried going without the medications and lasted for a short period of time. Inevitably, I end up requiring the medications or end up experiencing extreme pain and fatigue. Adrenaline can only take me so far. I am still experimenting by trying to eliminate medications and it is not an easy road to take. I don’t apologize for requiring them, but want to someday be free of them.

I hope and pray that sharing my information helps someone today.

You have two very powerful things with you ... HOPE and Faith.

I think both are so important, and sharing your own can bring strenth to others. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us Viv.

I guess the easiest way to make a difference is to focus on loving the people around you: Kids, spouse, partner, family and friends.
But being kind to strangers also helps spread that message.
Thanks for you great post! Your strength is inspirational.

Your friend,
