I’ve been inspired to start this blog while visiting Yangon, Myanmar. If it doesn’t sound familiar, it used to be called Burma. It’s just west of Thailand. I came here to visit a wonderful friend, and to start a journey through Asia. I started to realize how amazing it is that even with all that I have been through with Narcolepsy, I’m able to be here today. I don’t want this blog to be about me though. I want it to be about how YOU can also fulfill your dreams. I use a myriad of coping mechanisms to mitigate the symptoms of narcolepsy. As we all know, there is no cure. Maybe not all of my alternative remedies are right for you, but I hope you will try some out and see if they can make even the smallest impact on how you feel.
Today I want to talk about the one that sounds the simplest but may be the most difficult thing and that is the power of thinking positively. It is so important for you to understand that if you think you are going to feel bad, you will. If you think you cannot do something, you won’t do it. Over the past couple of years, I have learned that how I think has a HUGE impact on how I feel. So let’s start small and take a few moments every morning to decide that today is going to be a good day.
