I've made a decision to be more optimistic in my life.

The past few years have been difficult for me and my family.  I've considered divorcing my husband, (due to severe marital problems), been dealing with a serious worsening of a chronic disease I have called Multiple Sclerosis. (My son was born in 2006 and he can't remember when his Mommy was able to walk, pick him up, or drive a car.)  I've often wondered if taking my own life would be easier than dealing with it.

I've been down and depressed for so long; I don't want to be that way anymore.  

He is my declaration:

I choose to be optimistic.

I choose hope over despair.

I choose joy over sadness.

I choose love over anger and resentment.

I choose to see life as a precious gift, and never take it for granted.

I promise this to myself and the world.
