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.

It’s Okay Not To Be OK

Some days the words just don’t come out, and that’s okay. It is usually on those days when I have had multiple seizures, but it is also on those days when I feel too drained by the ups and downs of life to express how I think in words; this is when I pick up my pen and write. I write about not necessarily my worries, fears, or anxieties, but I write about my blessings. I write about all the things that life has provided me with and continues to offer me. 

I look up instead of looking down and focus on how good my life really is. I know that life is not going to be easy, and I have a choice to either make it harder on myself or make it easier by not choosing to dwell on the negative circumstances put in my way. By choosing not to overthink my circumstances and accept them, I am allowing myself to live a happier, more grateful life.

We all have the ability to do this; we have to allow ourselves to focus on what’s right in our lives. Your life will not be perfect, and there will be days that you just want to stay silent, and that’s okay; but allow yourself to realize your blessings, allow yourself the time to rest, and bring yourself peace. Focus on healing and getting your body and mind back in order.

Stay strong, remain positive, and continue to embrace your beautiful, messy life.

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.

My broken brain and Gratitude

As this new week opens up, I am thankful. It is four days before Thanksgiving, and I want to remind myself that while my life is not perfect and I don’t have everything I want out of it; yet, I am thankful for what I do have.

I have a brain that might act up sometimes and tends to misbehave when I least expect it to, but at least I have a working, operating, thinking mind. It allows me to complete simple tasks, and it enables me to complete large ones, too, even though those tasks might take a little longer to complete than others. It is a brain that is complex and hard to figure out, and as each new day passes and the more complicated it gets, the more I begin to realize that I must start to appreciate the three-pound mass inside of my skull.

I am not in the best living situation right now, I may be alone, but I am not lonely. Sometimes when I feel lonely, I remind myself that I am not alone and that I have people in my life who are there to help.

I have connections near and far, and it is those connections that keep me grounded and keep me pushing forward. I am thankful for each person I meet, and I am grateful that they continue to be in my life.

I will continue to be thankful for this new day and this new week. It is gratitude that keeps me moving.



As you approach this week, be thankful for the little blessings in front of you and be grateful for those small victories too. It is those small victories throughout our week that add up to the big things and make things feel good.

Don’t take this life for granted, and be thankful for it all. Keep on keeping on.
