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. 💜

The Pills That We Take.

Medication; it’s our lifeline,  or is it? We go to our doctors,  and they give us our prescriptions, then they send us home and tell us that all will be okay,  but will we? Medication; we have to take them, but that doesn’t mean that our Medications have to take us.

The side effects alone may cause us to feel sick,  and to lose our sense of self,  but the drugs we take do not mean that we  have to lose hope.

There are days when we might feel hopeless, and like we are ready to give in, those are the days we have to remember that gratitude is warm coat we have to wrap ourselves in. 

Medication; you have to take it, don’t let it take you.  You are so much more than the pills that you are given, and if you’re finding yourself feeling down,  continue to look up because you only have one life, embrace it, and be grateful today,  tomorrow,  and always

I PROMISE TO BELIEVE

On Monday, I found out that I needed to have brain surgery done; I haven’t been feeling quite right for some time, so I finally decided to go to my neurosurgeon to get everything checked out. I have known my surgeon for practically my entire life, so I wasn’t nervous when discussing what he needed to do; I didn’t expect him to tell me that the issues have been like they were for so long. As we talked more about the procedure, though, which will be a shunt revision, I did start to get a little apprehensive. Thoughts ran through my head about all of the what if’s of having the surgery, and I began to panic.  

My stomach tightened up, my palms got sweaty, and I began to think about all of the possible things that could go wrong. All of this ordinary, but none of it necessary. When I left his office, I began to breathe again, and as I walked, I started to think a little clearer about what the doctor needs to do. I called my parents and girlfriend and explained what needed to be done, and even more, my fear began to disappear. I began to believe that even though this is a not-so-good day, something good will happen for me by moving forward with this surgery. 

As the week progressed, I continued to believe that something good will happen, and despite feeling not my best throughout this week, I am hopeful that getting this surgery will make me feel better. 

I promise myself to believe that even though life will throw me not-so-good days life, there will always be good days to follow, and I will embrace them. 

Make yourself a promise today to believe that a good day is always around the corner waiting for you, so even when you have a not-so-good day, you will have the hope to continue to move forward.

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.

The Biggest Decision Of Your Life

There are big decisions, and there are little decisions that I must make today, but the more I think about it, the biggest decision I need to make today is to be happy. As time goes by and life moves forward, my happiness is the only thing that matters today. 

I could look back and continue to dwell on my past and focus on all of the things that I did wrong; I could continue to regret the people I hurt and the things that I did not do, but I only have today, and today I am choosing to be happy. 

My life has never been perfect, and I have never been perfect either, but I know no such thing as perfection in life, only flaws in this messy, beautiful life. I choose to embrace these beautiful flaws in myself and my life and be happy because I only have today; what happened yesterday is gone, and what might happen tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. 

New doors are opening for me, and I will enter them with open arms, choosing to be happy, hopeful, and grateful from this moment forward. 

Each new day is a chance for you to start fresh and embrace what’s new and good for you. Allow yourself today to let go of your past and put aside your regrets. You have this brand new day to thrive and move forward, and most of all, to be happy for all that it is.
