You are always a student

"You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward." - Conrad Hall

In my days of horseback riding this was very evident. Even though I trained less experienced riders, a person always needs to take lessons themselves to stay sharp. The world is everyone’s arena and each and every one of us has to keep striving for improvement. I feel as though I am doing quite well but these migraines are still and likely always will be a challenge for me. I have learned that aromatherapy helps me to a large extent. I learned of that from a coworker of my brother whose husband suffers with migraines. I am not a fan of painkillers. They certainly have a use and are extremely effective, but I forever will be trying to develop coping skills to help me manage this pain. I am always going to be open to new suggestions for methods that have worked for others who are migraine sufferers. I think that advice from people who have walked a portion of your path is incredibly advantageous as you are attempting to balance your life. I think that life is about the connections that you make with people. People can be supportive and excellent when they are given the opportunity to do so. People who are afflicted with similar conditions realize how daunting they can be to your everyday life. Social media has provided a very useful platform for people to compare experiences. I am very thankful to you for reading, and I welcome any thoughts that you may have.
