You’re still Here

So much that weighs on our hearts.

So many horrible experiences.

Trust broken, relationships not ever lasting.

Family became Strangers.

Illnesses with no cure.

Damage to the body that can’t fully be repaired.

Friends become enemies.

Debt is more than our salaries.

Our mental state needs assistance through counselors or prescriptions.

Some turn to the bottle and drugs to get through their issues.

With all of this… You’re Still here. You are Bigger than any of these circumstances. You serve a purpose not matter if it’s big or small. Don’t give in, don’t give up on yourself. You are needed.

Thank you,

L. O. A

I didn’t truly understand this until after I hit 30. We interact with so many individuals from all walks of the Earth and we have to be careful of what we allow to take place in our lives. I’m a work in progress but I realize how much my Peace is worth. I hope you do as well. I know this can be difficult if you have family, friends and colleagues that have toxic/negative energies surrounding them but we can choose to step away or to not let it disturb us. Have you guys ever felt like this? Or experienced this?

Staying grounded

We have busy lives. Many of us have families to provide for, and financial responsibilities to enormous debts. Many of us battle physics illness, mental illness and injuries. With all of these hats that we wear, we have to combat the world as well. 

All these factors (there are plenty more not mentioned) can add a lot of stress to the mind, body and soul. What do you do to stay grounded? 

Do you lean towards your faith, meditation or yoga practices? Or maybe it’s taking mental days to rest? Or enjoy your favorite hobby? Let me know 😊

Healing+Forgiveness

We often continue to live in the past and continue an unwanted cycle. Let’s make a decision to push through adversity and claim victory for ourselves. I believe in order for us to do this we need to Heal and forgive ourselves. Heal from the trauma that we experienced (no matter if it was big or small) and forgive ourselves because we continued to allow past trauma affect current decisions that we make. You got this, I got this, We All Got This πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺπŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ™πŸΎπŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―

No reminders needed…

On the journey of healing, I recognize the importance of loving yourself without the validation or attention from others.

It’s unhealthy to behave in this manner and to believe that if someone isn’t giving you praise, it’s a bad reflection of yourself. My dear friends, WE have to be our OWN best friend, and love ourselves first. It’s ok to have help as a secondary tool but it can’t be the ONLY tool.

It not easy to stop the codependency process but it WILL be worth it in the long run. Let’s continue to uplift one another, continue to do daily affirmations and grow. I’m here for anyone who needs help in their journeys.

As always, thanks for your support!

The MS fight continues after a great weekend.. oh Hey Selma Blair!

Hola friends! Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all are doing well. I’m doing ok! Over the weekend, the family and I had a nice family trip. The Kalahari indoor water park is a MUST go! I felt like I was youthful again, as I splashed around and was drenched by the water falls lol. Returning back home, was good up until last night.

My legs are on Fire! It’s uncomfortable to walk and I feel exhausted. How could it be? After having a great weekend, playing in the water? Oh the water! For MS patients, water helps to keep the body temperatures cool. No wonder, I felt my best at the resort. Today is treatment day. Usually after a few days from the Tysabri being administered, I “perk” up a bit. I’m looking forward to that because I was spoiled this weekend lol.

Nonetheless, your girl is staying strong and I will keep Pushing. I pray that you can do the same. Regardless of the challenges, don’t give up on yourself and keep going!

Before signing off, shout out to my fellow MS Warrior Selma Blair at the Oscar’s!! Rocking her cane and slurred speech, she looked Stunning!

Thanks for reading!

Motivational Monday: Masterpiece

Reflecting….

Why try to be someone else when you are wonderfully made as yourself? We all may be similar in traits, but we are Not the same. From the hairs on our scalps to our fingerprints, we have our own significance.

We have to apply this to our thought process. Many of us are a product if our environment and believe that’s the only way to be. In my opinion that doesn’t have to be the final answer. Just as I mentioned in a previous post, we can create our Own success story. With the proper mindset, tools, and opportunity, anything is possible.

Therefore, Be the Masterpiece that you are. Seek to find your peace, your truth, your awareness, and inner love. You don’t have to be like anyone else, you have a choice, I urge for you to choose YOU.

Thanks for reading friends!

We fall down

Hi friends, Happy Sunday!

I hope all is well.

People often ask me if I’m in pain when I fall down or how often does it happen. In the beginning, I used to be scared. However, my family and friends have been with me each step of the way so I’m never down for long. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s frustrating to fall or have the sensation of falling but I’m stronger because of it. I’m stronger not only physically but mentally as well.

I’m a proud Warrior and Survivor battling Multiple Sclerosis (MS). With that being said, I know the importance of cognitive thinking which has an influence on our attitude. I’m a woman of grace, courage and wisdom therefore, I won’t give up.

Friends, I know not all who follow me are MS Warriors, many battle other auto-immune diseases, mental illness and much more. This message is for all no matter the circumstance. Things may fall apart in your life, you may feel like things are piling up on top of you but I urge for you to continue. Slowly but surely RISE from your challenges and don’t be ashamed of the falls. You are going to be Ok!

If you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here. We are in this journey together so please don’t feel alone. Thank you all for reading!
