I very much believe that my attitude is what has gotten me through the last year or so. It started with post-natal depression and then WHAM! came Eilidh's diagnosis of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. I could so easily have chosen the other road, the road to putting my head in the sand, to forgetting to live, to not striving for the best future possible. But I didn't, "I took the one less travelled by, And that had made all the difference." I am certain that my choosing a positive attitude has had a knock-on effect on my direct family and friends, giving us all the courage to walk with our heads held high and to be proud of ourselves. With this attitude we realise that the bad days, the difficult times are fleeting and temporary, that we can do this, that we can go on living... We survive the tough times by choosing each day the attitude that serves us best, knowing that that very same attitude makes the good days, the fun days all the more colourful. I just wish more people would choose their attitude and embrace their day.
