I have lymphedema but I’ve put it to good use

I was born with lymphedema, swollen legs which get worse over time. For this reason I have to keep very fit with exercise and at 99 years old I can still touch my toes. If I did not suffer from lymphedema I might not be so fit.

Luck is frequently what you don’t get and to a certain extent you make our own luck. Most of us define luck as being something good that happens to us, but luck is often something which at the time you consider to be not good, but turns out to be just the opposite.

Things that could have happened didn’t happen, or things that you wanted to happen didn’t, but the outcome turns out to be good!

Luck is often something you don’t recognise at the time. How can my lymphedema even be considered lucky? But with this in mind I look at the positive side of things and my present fitness.

I consider how lucky I really am. Our thoughts and behaviours are responsible for most of our luck.

Accept chance there’s not much you can do about it anyway!
