Multiple Sclerosis ... Just a Bump in the Road!

As a Motivational Speaker, I get to speak to lots of people across the country. Many of them REALLY like my "MS... Just A Bump In the Road" tagline -- matter of fact, they prefer to visit my website by going to instead of my actual name, That's OK.. I don't take it personally. "MS... Just a Bump in the Road" is easier to remember AND it's a GREAT affirmation to be reminded of each day. The way I look at it, if you remember "MS.. Just A Bump in the Road" and it sticks with you, then this is the beginning of an alternative attitude that you can have towards the diagnosis of a chronic health condition, like MS. You will start to believe that it can be "just a bump in the road" and that you WILL overcome this challenge and live life to it's fullest! Anything is possible! Your thoughts are very powerful... don't underestimate them.

You see, the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis can be just another bump in the road of your life. Yes, at times that bump can throw you off course a little bit (it may even make you spill your cup of coffee ) , but it can be "just a bump" depending on how you choose to look at it. I always say to people "no matter how big the bump seems, there is always the other side to the bump!" You can get to the other side of the bump and see a smooth road.

For me, the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis was an eye opener. It taught me that life can be very unpredictable and at any moment something can happen -- so why not cherish the present moment. It also taught me that worrying about the future is pointless (for the same reason above -- anything can happen, and I make it a point to give equal weighting to the possibilty of a positive outcome .. actually, I give more weighting to the positive then the negative, because I truly believe that what we focus on most shapes how we experience life.)

If you have just been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, know that it can be "Just a Bump in the Road" (even if it doesn't appear that way right now). Contact me at and I will share with you how you can maintain a positive attitude and life a rich and fulfilling life, despite the diagnosis of MS.
