Strolling into Monday like….

Good morning!

You have purpose. Own it.

Not everyone will understand or be supportive and that’s ok. What’s for you, Is For You. That means with the journey, you have to continue to push through for greatness.

Will it be easy? Nope. However, any journey or goal worth experiencing does not come fast and easy.

Have a Great Day Friends!

Saturday thoughts: What I’ve learned from Kendrick Lamar’s “Element.”


As I stated in my birthday recap post, hubby and I went to the “Damn.” concert, which starred my one of my favorite artists, Kendrick Lamar. The song Element has been weighing heavy on my mind and here is what I’ve learned….
When pursuing your passion feels discouraging
“You know careers take off, you just gotta be patient”. Patience, is the major key. We get excited about the possibility of what could be but we either compare ourselves to others or lack confidence. We all do this, but when do the excuses stop? When does being scared of success stop? We have to CONTINUE. Even if you move slow with your passion just don’t stop. 
Don’t let them take you out your Element
The enemy is moving quickly and working hard to take us off track. This is when self-doubt happens and those “little voices” tell us that it won’t work. Even if you have a moment of doubt, don’t let many see that. They will feed off of it and let’s face it, people are always “watching”. So, don’t miss a beat! 

Keep going Friends, you got this!!

It’s much Greater


Hi, great people!

On yesterday, I was in a really funky mood. I wasn’t feeling the best, money was acting funny, and it was chilly lol! However, as the day went on, I was in better spirits. Isn’t that life? Don’t we have those moments when we just feel like everything is going wrong, but yet things turn out right?
Battling Multiple Sclerosis, has truly humbled my spirit. I don’t take any day for granted. I appreciate the fight in me. I realize that God has given this journey to me for a reason. My Purpose will Always be Greater. I do feel that I can Motivate, Inspire and Support anyone who is in need. 
The same goes for you. Your strength, the works that you do, your drive, your passion is Greater than the struggle you are dealing with. Things will get better, You will get better!

Fight on MS Warrior

Hi great people!

Today was the Long Island MS Walk. I’ve walked every year since I was diagnosed in 2010. However, lately, I was in a rut about going. I wasn’t feeling my best physically or mentally. It wasn’t until 8 am this morning when I said, “Ok I’m going”. My team came with me and we had a good time. 


I met a very nice woman named, Margaret Murphy who works at the National MS Society Long Island Chapter. I told her that I plan to be more involved with MS events in the future. I also did my annual pic with  my dear friend Erin who inspires me so much! 


So it turned out to be great after all and I’m happy I went! I’m blessed to have my supporters from near and far. Those who have helped me spiritually, those gave those pep talks and donated to the National MS society! Because of you, someone can get assistance with wheel chairs, walkers, coverage for treatment and the list goes on. On behalf of MS Warriors, THANK YOU! 

I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far! 😊

Gloomy days

Hey great people! Happy Thursday to you!

Here in NY it is rainy and gloomy. I don’t know about you but when the weather is like this, I just want to cuddle in a blanket. I also notice that it can affect my mood too. I gain my energy from the sun and it makes me feel good. 

Isn’t that how life can be? We have those grey skies and it seems like nothing can go right. However, just when we thought we would be doomed, the sun comes out. 

Peace, overcomes us. We begin to feel a sense of comfort. I know the time frame between the gloomy days and sunny ones aren’t easy but the results are  worth it. Please hang in there friends. It will get better, don’t give up!

Let your light shine through your darkness

Hi, Great People!

We all have a past that haunts us. We all have experiences that people can’t and won’t forget about us.
Through our darkness, we can bring light to our current situation. Our past and shortcomings doesn’t determine our success or future. Often, the enemy, will make us believe that we are nothing and won’t amount to anything. Friends, that is far from the truth and is NOT your reality. 

I urge you to dig deep, use your darkest days to create brighter ones. Help the next person who is struggling as well. Link up with a community of individuals who battle what you battle. With patience and support, you Can turn it all around. 

Blessings to you all, have a good Monday!

Feel good Fridays: what puts you in a good mood?

Hi friends!! Happy Friday to you!

I love journals and I got this spiritual one from tj maxx for 4 bucks!  
Not only did the price make me smile but the inside of each page had bible verses. I find scripture to be comforting especially when I need that reminder that I’m not alone. 

Little things like this makes me smile along with many other things. It brightens my spirit and mood. What is something that puts you in a good mood?
