I recognize how much I've learned and how I continue to grow as I reflect upon my story and life experiences. I wrote this book as a tool to remind me of what is working for me, and as an invitation for you to join me in choosing the D.R.I.V.E. mindset.
Living with a diagnosis of disease requires courage, faith, and stamina, as well as respect and compassion, while moving forward into the unknown. In my case, it is multiple sclerosis.
Some people choose to remain a victim of the disease. However, this influential little book positions you to be the driver.
As someone living with MS for more than 17 years, I discerned that choosing my mindset was the most important decision that I could make with regards to managing disease. This mindset is based on a set of five keys (D.R.I.V.E.), using principles and practices that diminish disillusionment and generate greater inner peace.
My book is a practical self-help guide, combining the study of the D.R.I.V.E. keys and reflections for dialogue. I offer you hope and inspiration, as well as suggest effective strategies and tools for attending to your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The journal exercises invite you to work with the insights you derive from the keys and help you choose the changes you would like to make in your life and begin implementing them.
Get the keys!
Do it for you.
