Normally Friday’s posts are for newsletter subscribers only, but for the 2019 MS Awareness month, I want to open up the posts to all readers. Raising MS Awareness is very important to me, so I don’t want anyone to feel excluded. If you aren’t a newsletter subscriber already, sign up now.
This year, MS Mommy Blog’s MS Awareness logo is a heart-shaped ribbon with a lotus flower at the center.
The lotus is deeply symbolic across the world, due to the plant growing out of the murky mud into a beautiful flower. So is the same for those of us with MS (or any chronic illness for that matter): through the murkiness of our disease do we grow into beautiful beings. The lotus reminds us to be compassionate, courageous, mindful, inner peace, and wisdom. These are qualities necessary to managing a chronic illness.
So for this year’s month of MS awareness, let us keep the symbology of the lotus within our hearts and remember through our personal adversity we are still beautiful people. The adversity shapes us and makes us stronger.
