“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dreams, we all them. But no one person, dreams for exactly the same thing. As a young girl, many of us dreamed, of the handsome man we would someday meet, fall in love and get married. Or maybe we had loftier dreams, being doctor, lawyer, astronaut, or even president. But none of us, dreamed that migraine and chronic pain, would be a part of our lives. That every step we took, migraine was right beside us, how it could have the power, to change our dreams. Until we took that power back, by learning all we could about migraine. Finding the right doctor to partner with, to form a treatment plan, that would put migraine back in its place.
Sounds too simple, you say? You’re right, it takes hard work and dedication. Finding the preventative medication, that will work for you. Doing an elimination diet, to find any food triggers. Making lifestyle changes, adding relaxation techniques, biofeedback or mindfulness meditation, and sticking with it. This is what you must do, if you dare to live the life you dreamed of for yourself!
Go forward and make your dreams come true! I have seen this happen, within my circle of migraine sisters. Remember dreams are different for everyone. Two swan with dolphins, one returned to college and received her Masters in Nursing, another took an extend road trip with her husband, still another took two road trips with her boyfriend, something she thought, she would never be able to do, one is very active in a organization called ZimKids, and yet another as returned to college to work on getting her Master degree, and lastly one is very active in a foundation for young women. Starting this blog, was a dream come to true for me.
Your journey with migraine, doesn’t have to keep you from your dreams. You’re in the driver’s seat, make the most of it. Yes, there is going to be rough times and rocky roads, but know that you have the strength and hope, to get through them. Most importantly, you are never ALONE!
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
Live with hope,
