Brain surgery, strength, and the will to never give up.

Last Friday, I had to have brain surgery done to repair a shunt that had malfunctioned; I have been experiencing headaches and nausea for some time, as well as some changes in my seizure activity, and so my doctor had said it was time to fix the issue.

We all fall and encounter roadblocks in our lives; these past few days have been draining for me, but I have not let the roadblocks in my life stop me, don’t let them stop you.

Continue to believe in yourself and know that you’re stronger than any obstacle put in front of you. Keep on keeping on, and have a great day, everyone.💜

More recently I have started to become at peace with my current circumstances. I can’t change them at the moment, the only thing I can do is accept them completely and try my best to be at peace with who I am right now, what I have in this moment, and where I am in my life at this moment in time. I am grateful for my beautiful mess, and I am at peace with it. Today be at peace with who you are, what you have, and where you are in life at this point in time. Keep on keeping on and have a great day everyone. 💜

Move forward on Monday

It’s a brand new day of a brand new week. Open yourself up to the newness of it, and do your best even if you don’t feel your best.

I woke up today not feeling my best, but I will make the best out of my today.

Keep on keeping on and have an awesome day everyone.

The Voice inside us all.

A poem about our inner voice and how it can heal.

For the longest time, I allowed myself to listen to the negative,  unloving, deceitful voice inside myself; each day, I would awake, and I would move forward with my day,  but in my mind, I was still be held back.  I didn’t see the beauty in my life and the uniqueness in myself; I only saw the darkness surrounding me and the roadblocks up ahead.

When I chose to see my life positively and listen to my positive inner voice,  my life and my perception of it began to change.  I saw things in a new light,  and the roadblocks were now wide open roads for me to travel on and move forward freely with my life.

The voice you choose to listen to can save your life; the voice you choose can change your life.
The voices you choose can cause you harm, make you feel sad, or give you new hope, even during those times when you feel at the end of your rope.
The words you speak to yourself will cause you to feel down or will allow you to keep your chin up when life feels unsound. These words can sting, or they can sing, but most importantly, they can heal.
So, If you continue to look up, even when you’re down, your life will start to turn right around. It may not happen fast, it may take some time, but the voices you choose will make you begin to feel just fine.
Each new day will bring something different, so allow yourself to speak, feel and let go, allowing you the room you need to listen to the voices that will help you grow.
Life can be either messy or sublime, but when you choose to talk to yourself with the right voices, life will seem less complicated, and in the end, reassure you that life is not terrible all the time.

New Year, New Intentions

It’s January 1st, 2021, and I have never been so ready to move forward into a new year than this one.

I intend to love more; not just others, but most importantly myself. By choosing to love myself more deeply each day will allow me to open myself up to loving others, and sharing in their joy and happiness more freely.

I intend to heal more; life is sometimes unkind and can cause things that are out of my control to happen. I choose to step back and breathe and focus on myself when I need to and allow my body, mind, and soul to heal.

I intend to inspire; I will move forward into this new year and encourage more people with my story. Inspiring others is a fantastic feeling, and I cannot wait to do more of it.

Finally, I intend to continue to stay grateful for my beautiful, messy life; I only have one life to live, and while it may not be perfect, this life is mine, and I am grateful. My body might ache, and my brain might be a little broken, but all in all, this life of mine is amazing, and I am thankful.

Merry Christmas to all of you that celebrate! May this day be full of love, happiness and joy for everyone. The Holidays can be filled with stress; don’t allow the stress of the past, stress of the present, and stress of the future to turn into something even bigger for you. Accept it, acknowledge it, and let it go. It is allowing yourself to feel joy. Keep on keeping on everyone, and have a Merry Christmas. ✌🎄

Don’t take this life for granted.

I have contemplated the thought of suicide quite a bit throughout my life, and I have tried to end it on numerous accounts, with my last attempt being in September of 2012. Over these past seven years, I have realized that no matter how difficult this life might get, suicide is not the answer. 

Life is more beautiful than death, and I am grateful for this life, regardless of how much it seems to get me down sometimes. I am thankful for the tough times; they have made me stronger, and I am grateful for the strength that I have to get through those tough times. 

AND I WON’T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED

Each new day I am alive is a gift, and I promise myself today not to take this gift for granted. I woke up this morning, and I have air in my lungs, and I have two eyes to see and two ears that allow me to hear. I will choose today to allow myself to be grateful and promise myself not to take this day for granted. 

My brain and my body sometimes do not cooperate; I might have a seizure that causes me to stiffen up, but I will not take it for granted. My brain still works, and my body even moves, and I am thankful. 

Life is a mess, but it is beautiful; embrace it. When you wake up at 5 AM, and your body aches, and you wipe the sleepers out of your eyes, and you feel the air in your lungs; before you complain about your aching back, how tired you are, or that it’s too early. Be Thankful that you have aches and pains and air in your lungs. 

The more we promise ourselves to be thankful for the little things in our lives, the more those little things become big things, and the more we allow those things to create a better feeling inside our hearts and minds. 

Be thankful, choose hope, and promise yourself every day to embrace life.

I’M GOING TO MAKE IT.

I am feeling good today, yesterday was not so good, but today is better. I will continue to stay encouraged through this beautiful mess and not get discouraged. 

I took a break from much of anything yesterday, mostly because I couldn’t think through the pain that I was experiencing. I had a kidney stone working its way through me, and I was too tired and also in pain to do anything.

I choose to feel encouraged

But I am not complaining. Today is a new day, and while although yesterday I couldn’t do much, I am not going to get discouraged. I am going to continue to move forward and appreciate how far I’ve come. I feel a bit better today, not perfect, but better, and I will continue to embrace my challenges and choose to allow them to make me into a stronger person.

As you move forward through today and the rest of this week, don’t get discouraged by a setback. Stay encouraged, and continue to move forward. If you feel that you can’t do something, step back for a minute, and allow yourself a moment to breathe and realize that life is never perfect, and nothing in life is ever permanent either.  

Continue to stay grateful, and if you encounter a setback through this week, remember that a setback is a set up for a comeback, and when you feel yourself falling back, pick yourself up and fall forward. Keep on keeping on.
