"A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are for what you have."   unknown by {lisa.anne}

Living life with a chronic illness is like being on a Ferris wheel. You have your ups, and your downs. Sometimes it takes forever, but other times those ups and downs come very quickly – in a matter of hours.

Thankfully, right now, a very very long flare has broken. With the help of an increase in prednisone, I have been able to feel amazing the past few weeks. I consider myself very lucky to be on the top of the wheel right now, because I’ve spent so much time on the downfall.

Usually, I’d be worried about when the wheel will start moving again. It would preoccupy my thoughts, making it impossible to enjoy this time. But for now, I’m just so thankful to be able to be active and have a taste of normalcy. I’m going to enjoy this time and use it for all it’s worth.

Eventually that wheel will start moving again. But when it does, I’ll be ready.
