Ep 74 | How to Stay Positive in the Face of Adversity with Angie Carlson She Finds Joy

    • Self-Improvement

Wow! My interview with my 1992 high school classmate, Angie Carlson, was heartwarming, inspiring, and thought-provoking. Shortly after giving birth to her son, Angie was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) 30 years ago. This disease has left her using a walker, sometimes a wheelchair, and the smallest of tasks takes a monumental effort.  

 

It’s easy to look at Angie’s everyday life and the obstacles she deals with, but she chooses to see her life differently. While she doesn’t deny the extreme fatigue, her limitations, or the hardness of it all, she maintains that she is happy in her life because she CHOOSES to be. She describes her highs, lows, and personal triumphs. 

What’s in the episode: 
Why we must ask ourselves, “How do we want to feel?”
Understanding how our thoughts create our feelings.
Embracing what is and not resisting.
Making conscious decisions that support how we want to live our lives.
Advice on how to see things from a different perspective?  
Choosing abundance, joy, and happiness in the midst of hardness.

“I feel like there is no other choice. That's the only choice I choose because I don’t want to be unhappy.” Angie Carlson
