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.💜
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.

Keep on keeping on,
What are you thankful for today? Let me know by leaving a comment or writing them down in a journal.
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.

What are your intentions for the new year ahead? Write them down in your journal, or let me know in the comments section below. If you don’t have a journal, you can check mine out below.
You’re alive today, isn’t it grand? You’re ALIVE today, give yourself a big hand. There were so many people who weren’t given a chance, to wake up with a smile on their face and say I have one more chance.
You’re ALIVE today, so allow yourself to smile, to feel the air in your lungs, to walk that extra mile.
Feel the wind on your face, listen to the birds chirping too, smell the sweet air around you touch the people you love; hold them near, use all your senses and be happy you are here.
You were given this chance, don’t take it for granted, embrace the beautiful mess that is yours, and be grateful for it all, there are so many people who didn’t wake up to fall. Falling is a part of life, we can’t get away without stumbling once or twice, but think of what a privilege it is to do so, isn’t it nice?
Choose to dance even if you can’t, feel the rhythm of life move you, and embrace the energy running right through you. There are so many out there that can’t walk and are wishing they could, so feel the rhythm, and be happy that you can move at all even if it’s tough for you.
Allow yourself to let go, and be who you are. Be silly, be stupid, be weird, and laugh at the mess that you’re, there are so many who weren’t given that chance today, consider yourself blessed, even if at times you may feel stressed.
Life can seem tough at times, but when you’re grateful you will see, that life is a privilege not given to everyone, and how beautiful it can be.
A poem about our inner voice, and how it can heal.
The voices you choose can save your life, the voices you choose can change your life.
The voices you choose can cause you harm, make you feel sad, or can 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 it can be 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.
Stop saying; I can’t, it can’t, I hate, it’s not easy, it’s easier said than done, I have; no time, no patience, no control over. I’m too old, I’m too young, I’m too fat, I’m too skinny. My life is; not easy, not good enough, so screwed up, too hard, not worth it. No one; loves me, likes me, wants me, thinks of me, needs me…
To be happier do this…
I can, it can, I love, it’s easy, I will not rely on my excuses. I have time, if I want to, I’m peaceful, I am in control, I’m just right. My life is messy, but it’s beautiful. It’s not easy, but what in life is easy? My life is; good the way it is, imperfect, but it’s mine, my life is worth it. I am likable, I am lovable, people are thinking of me and I feel supported, I am needed in this world.
Don’t forget your friends when; you become rich, if you become poor, if you start a new career, or end one. Don’t fail to remember your friends if you’re happy, if you’re lonely, if you’re excited, or you’re sad. Because a true friend won’t forget you, and if you’re a true friend you won’t forget them too.
Don’t ignore your friends even if you’re married, dating, falling in love, or falling out of it. Don’t ignore your friends, if they forget to text you back, miss your Birthday, or don’t mention it even if they didn’t forget. Don’t close your eyes to your friends if have a minor disagreement, or any disagreement at all. One day they will need you, or you will need them too, and because you are holding a grudge, you are taking away the only way for them to reach you.
Friends, whether you consider them family or not, are a gift to have. Choose to focus on the gift they are to you instead of holding a grudge because they couldn’t call, text or be there for you, even when they wanted to.
Just like you, they may be going through something similar, or at times worse, so reach out to them even if you’re hurt. Because friends like yours, and mine, and all of us combined, are only here on this earth for a limited amount of time. So, reach out, call, text, or write to them, and keep them close to you .
When you believe in yourself there is nothing you can’t do, when you believe in yourself you will develop the power to pull through. The world becomes larger, and clearer each day, and you start to develop the courage that you need to get you through even the darkest day.
Your life may seem tough at times, and that’s okay, continue to believe in yourself and your abilities anyway. The challenges you face may seem so much harder, but when you believe in yourself, you will be able to handle them much smarter.
So believe in yourself, and know that I believe in you too, know that there is someone out there who is thinking of you. There are people out there who want you to succeed and do your best, there are people out there who believe in you, and want you to pass the test.
This test of yours is life, and you can get through, just by believing in yourself and all that you can do.
Love is hope; love is peace, love is happiness and joy. Love is warmth, love is a comfort, love is safety, and it is calm. Love is loud, love is exciting, love is eye-opening and is also uplifting.
Love is only present; it doesn’t think of the past, it allows you to live now, and create the life that you want, love is the opposite of fear, it lets you push through, it has no judgment, it lets you be you.
When we choose to love the world will seem clear when we choose to love, all that we fear will disappear. Our eyes will open up to new miracles surrounding us, and the world becomes bigger just knowing what’s around us.
Be kind to yourself, and be helpful to others, show them love, but most importantly show yourself love to because the love that you have for yourself will give you the strength to pull through.
So choose to love life, all you’re and what you have. There is only one chance at it, choose to love it choose to feel it, choose to be open to it each day.
