Oh hello! Mama has been busy on the Grow!

Hey guys!

I know I have been MIA for a bit, but I’m still tripping along. Many of you know that I am expecting another baby in April (IT’S ANOTHER BOY!) and I’m so excited. I feel that boys are fun and my son can have a best friend as they grow older. My husband and I have another little cub in our “Wolf Pack” So, it’s all good.

This pregnancy has been VERY different though. With my first, there were times I forgot that I was pregnant or that I battled MS because I barely experienced any symptoms. However, this time around the moment of finding out it seems I was reminded every day that I was carrying life and the immediate changes that occurred in my body. I still have weakness in my legs at times, my belly popped out sooner and I’ve been very achy. Through it all, I’m still standing and remaining thankful.

I know pregnancy is a privilege to many and I don’t take it for granted. It’s also a responsibility to our families and communities. What we teach and how we teach our youth can determine how they create themselves to the world. Therefore, raising two young men, holds a lot of importance to me. I promised, their Mother to do my best by them for eternity and I have faith that I will.

Thank you for reading and for your patience as this mama is busy on the Grow.

Top Fundraiser

Last night, I had the honor of attending the National MS Society Long Island Chapter event. It recognized the top fundraisers for the Walk MS 2019. Team Nicole Cherise earned a little over $1700 and we were placed at number 64!!! I’m so thankful to those who have walked with me and supported our team for such a cause that is near and dear to me. Next year will be TEN years diagnosed with MS and I will continue to spread awareness and fight for a cure! God bless you all and let’s get to work for 2020!!!

Updates!!!!

Hi friends!!! I want to say thanks so much for all the love and support as my family is expanding! I’ve been very tired and haven’t been blogging like normal, my apologies 🤦🏾‍♀️ however, I do plan to get back on it soon and sharing videos as well. Thanks so much for your patience.

Also, this the reason why I haven’t posted my Tysabri treatment photos because I cannot receive treatment while pregnant. Ohhhh the New Journey! Catch you later folks!

Thanks for still being faithful readers and SM buddies

Don’t think you’re not experienced

Hi all! Happy Motivational Monday!

Something that weighs heavy on my heart is the term experience and what it means in our lives. We know the definition of experience means: practical knowledge, skill, or practice derived from direct observation of or participation in events or in a particular activity.

We tend to read literature of how to do something, or how to be better at something, but yet we still can feel lost. We tend to think we are inadequate if we don’t use the big words like the scholars, or if someone is older, we feel more of a subordinate.

Listen, forget all of that! We DO have experience. Rather, it’s parenting, marriage, a religious calling, technology, etc.. If you have done it for a while, then you are worth being listened to.

As I write this message to you, I’m talking to myself as well. We are capable of so much, but let formal education or our youthfulness get in the way. Don’t settle yourself short, you are wiser than you think.

Thanks for reading!

Balance

One of the biggest lessons that I’m learning is that BALANCE is necessary. The Highs and Lows, the Sunshine and Thunderstorms, are Needed. I find that it keeps us grounded, we learn, we grow and it’s humbling.

Think of being back in High school. You might not have been the best English or Math student and no matter how much you studied, your test marks didn’t go above a “C”. However, one day you DID receive a high remark on a test. I don’t know about you, but I know that I felt like I was on cloud 9 when I finally scored a B or better! It was at that moment when we realize ok, this IS not my subject, but I will continue to give my all.

Don’t give in during the Lows and Thunderstorms of Life. It is NOT easy and requires a lot determination and strength, but you can do it. Clear your thoughts, have fun with some loved ones, write in your journal, and set affirmations. You got this!

Don’t get your panties in a bunch!

Happy Motivational Monday! Through this journey… this is One of the BIGGEST lessons that I’m learning. I wear my heart on my sleeve, I dont take criticism well, I don’t like the feeling of rejection and more.

I’m not proud of these traits but they are apart of me. What I’m beginning to understand is that i DON’T need to take the little things personally. Someone doesn’t like a post? Cool. Someone gave a critique that I didn’t want to hear? Cool.

What I needed to understand is that I can learn from all of those experiences. Guess what friends? So can you! If you’re like me, this is no simple task, however, You are more than what lies on the surface. You are NOT a failure. The BEST of your story hasn’t been told yet! Hold on dear friends, we are in this together!

Thanks for reading!

Chose wisely

Happy Motivational Monday friends! As we all know in life we have to make choices. Some are easy while others can be very difficult. We have to learn to think thoroughly and critically. Usually inpatient and haste decisions can bring hardships later.

I can admit that MANY decisions I’ve made weren’t the best ones but I’m learning to accept it and figure out other alternatives. We also can grow from our past mistakes. There are no losers, simply developing WINNERS. Have a fantastic Monday!

Thanks for reading!
