Having relapsing MS isn’t only something that I have to live with, but also something that my family and friends have to live with. I have an amazing group of people to help support me during tough times, and it’s only fair that they also help me celebrate my successes.
It doesn’t matter how large (positive results from my latest MRI) or small (completing a project) of a success I have, I like to celebrate it. For me a celebration can be a small dinner party or a weekend away. The most important part of a celebration for me is the people I choose to celebrate with.
Sometimes it may be a personal success that I want to celebrate on my own. In this case, I will often do something that I enjoy such as treating myself to a pedicure or just relaxing outside and reading a book.
For the most part, every day that I can continue to live the way that I want, I consider being a success. I celebrate these days by looking forward to the next one.
