I woke up today, a bit cold outside. Both of my dogs, Gort and Sophie are cuddled next to me. They both get so excited when I wake up. The look they give is pure joy! We should each start our day like Gort and Sophie! Pure joy!

You hear people say this one has a great life or that one has it all. People always want someone else's life. I listen to people talk about life, what they think it should or should not be. Listening, trying to understand why someone doesn't make the life they have the one that is ok.
The fact is life is life. We all need to find our life, our way. Wanting what others have is not facing who we each are as an individual. No one’s life is perfect. We all have challenges in our lives. Some you can see on the outside, some are only on the inside.
What is important is what each one of us does with our life. Make it the best life you can have. It is not about things and items. It is about who you are, what kind of a person you want to be. Look at challenges in your life to make you stronger. Each day, start your day with a positive note and end it with a positive note. Keep that up and you will see a smile stay with you all day.
Try to always look to the future. Tomorrow will be better than today. And yesterday is over. Find something to bring your spirit alive. Each and every one of us has something to offer in the world. We all count and we all can make a difference.

This excellent blog, Finding A Purpose, inspires us to view our challenges through a different lens. Diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis are still without a cure, and the effectiveness of medications will vary depending upon the person. However, in seeing the positives in our lives, we can “remake ourselves” and endure the challenges of debilitating diseases such as MS.

For 10 consecutive years Genworth Financial has surveyed long-term care service providers in 437 regions across the country. Looking back at the past five years of survey results, the company discovered some emerging trends across the long-term care services. Overall, the cost of care among facility-based providers has steadily increased. However, assisted living and adult day health care have registered the highest increases. Assisted living costs have risen the most – 4.26 percent since 2008.
The average annual price for assisted living was $41,400 which is half the cost of care in a nursing facility, $83,950. The three most expensive states for assisted living were Alaska ($72,000), New Jersey ($71,928), and Delaware ($66,396). The three least costly states were Georgia ($32,430), Alabama ($31,200), and Missouri ($27,450). Annual assisted living costs in most southeastern states were significantly less than the national average.
With all of these rising costs it is important to be proactive about your health and living conditions. EasyUndies Medical Garments are one of those proactive products. EasyUndies can help reduce the risk of falling. Being independent as you age or if you have any kind of mobility or dexterity issues is important.
Make it safe, make it easy, make it an EasyUndies day.
