We’re scared so it’s..No

We are Scared. We have Fear. We are Doubtful.

The Unknown is what makes us give the quick answer of “No”. We get frightened because we have to step out of our comfort zone. We make excuses of why we can’t be great. Therefore, we choose to give up.

Friends, our biggest challenge is to take that leap of faith. We get so close to achieving our dreams, so close that we can Taste it! Yet, we fall short.

Let’s make a conscious effort to try for that leap. We can write down our vision, do the research, and finally execute! Believe in yourself. You Owe it to yourself. Be Happy and not afraid of Success.

I’m here as always, thanks for reading!

Pushing Through

Hi friends, happy Tuesday!

Push through…

That’s something I continue to tell myself during challenging times. It’s not easy battling a difficult disease like MS, but I can’t give in to it. I know many that read my blog, are battling other autoimmune diseases, mental health issues, or spiritual brokenness. I also, know that Caregivers have a challenging task when it comes to watching someone they love suffer. WE ARE NOT ALONE! Together, we can lift one another up because Support goes a long way.

This past week, I had my Tysabri treatment and the days after were rough. I had difficulty walking, it was a task to get dressed, I fell twice and I cried because of the pain and weakness in my legs. Even during this time of despair, I promised myself that I wouldn’t give up and I would PUSH through it all at my own pace. I urge you all to do the same. I went to the gym on Sunday and did my best with what I had for that day (I do the spoon theory in my head lol). The amount of support that was given to me was overwhelming and it truly melted my heart. People re-posted my video and tagged me as Inspiration for them to exercise.

Please continue friends. Don’t give up on yourself or the process. Below is the video that I posted and keep in mind that days prior, I was not able to walk far alone. God is good. 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!

Whatever don’t……

“Whatever don’t kill me, Gets me through the day”

All praises to the Lord for providing me the strength and guidance to Keep Going even when my body is attacking itself.

My hope is that anyone who is going through the storms in their life, please remember you are NOT walking alone. Sometimes the weight of physical and mental health leaves you to feel as if your too weak, no my friends you Won’t FALL!

Motivational Monday: Waiting for your time to Shine

Good morning on this motivational Monday! I hope all had a wonderful weekend and will have a great week.

I truly believe that we can Win, and be successful. We do, though, reach our personal success at different times and in different ways. Some are born with resources while others have to network to get through the door. I believe that our circumstances build our character. While we are busy working towards our goals, waiting for it to come into fruition is hard. Friends, we control 2 things while we wait: 1) how we wait and 2) whom we become during the process.

How we wait is important because it’s truly the “make it or break it” for our ambitions. If we have negative thoughts because what we want didn’t happen yet, we can start to believe that it just might not and give up. Friends, we can’t do that. If it takes daily affirmations, vision boards, praying, support groups of like-minded individuals, please do it. The last thing you want is to have regrets because you were too impatient.

Who we become during the process is important as well. We can become that person who held tight to their dreams and worked hard for them to become a reality or a person who watches others make moves and remain in a fantasy world. This is a challenge because Life happens so it’s easy to strike out to curve balls. This does not make you less of a great person, but it does set the tone for your future.

Giving up is easy because the responsibility is off of our shoulders. However, being persistent and Not giving up is Courageous.

I hope this post finds you well, and can aid in the process of what you are trying to accomplish.

Comparison, a possible tool

Good day friends!

I’m sure most of us has heard the quote by Theodore Roosevelt “Comparison is the Thief of Joy“. Which basically says that if we keep looking at other’s lives, we will ultimately become unhappy of our own. I have so many views on this and I’m sure this is often a topic of discussion amongst people. We can be hypocrites on a topic which imo is Normal.

Yes, if you try to keep up with the Jones’, you will get frustrated if your expectations aren’t met. However, using the Jones’ as a tool could benefit you. Seeing the surface, the glitter, the green grass can be flipped for us to figure out how we can achieve that status on our own.

Some of the ways that we compare ourselves are by our appearance, lifestyle, cars, career choices and more. When we see others living the “Life” that we want, many start to believe that they aren’t adequate. Our bodies aren’t good enough, the nice apartment we have is no longer cool, our car isn’t great anymore, all because we are comparing it to the “ideal”.

We should take the initiative to find ways to be the “challenge”. That “ideal” becomes our goal and we can put our own spin on it. Want a healthier and better body? Get to work. Want to go on extravagant vacations every season? Get more sources of income. Keep grinding to get your dream house and luxury car.

All these things are great and achievable. However, do not Lose yourself. You have to love YOU and be proud of the accomplishments that you have made. Keep your eye on the prize and watch the benefits come!

What are your thoughts? Do you compare yourself with others? Have you made the decision to use that as a tool? Let me know ☺️
