Motivational Mondays: Accomplish your goals

Hi friends! I hope you had a good weekend! I was able to spend time with some girlfriends and enjoyed church service yesterday 😊

I want to share something with you all. Since, 2014 I began writing my MS story. I would constantly say, “I need to hurry and finish my draft” and of course I didn’t. So fast forward to the present, I expanded my writing with each chapter but never quite “finished” it. Therefore, this past March, I told Steve that I would be done with the book by the end of April. Friends, I held on to my word. Yes I finished my first draft to my story! I feel so good and like one weight was lifted off my shoulders. 

Have you ever put your mind to something, set a goal and then accomplished it? It’s an awesome feeling isn’t? I encourage us all to do this more. Life is about taking chances and having that feeling of joy when we claim victory. My suggestion is to jot down some ideas or goals and set a REALISTIC deadline. I guarantee you will feel great and motivated to do more. I hope this can help someone and please feel free to share this with someone who may feel stuck in a rut. Trust me, those days don’t last forever, especially when you put your mind to something.

Thanks for reading and sharing!

Feel good Friday: Our struggle is not in vain 

  
Lately, this has been me. I’ve been feeling that the battle with MS is serving a purpose. It’s extremely difficult, especially when you don’t know what “normal” feels like anymore. I walk with my head held high, I smile even when I’m not happy, but it’s those moments that only my husband sees. He sees the tears, the pain, he carries me when I can’t walk. 

I share that not only because it’s MS Awareness month, but also because not all diseases are visible and I know in my heart this journey has been for a reason. I’m going to continue to fight, I can promise that. Friends, I know and understand that not all are vocal about their struggles or issues but you are not alone. Your strength that is gained from the struggle is a part of your story. Let’s stick together in this race, we call life. Don’t give up.

Motivational Monday’s: you can still come out on top!

Many times we feel like we are thrown against a wall like the lemons that life threw at us. Please hang in there. Get ready for your major comeback. Last night I had a tough time as I was thinking of all craziness going on in my life, however I know that my new season is Near. Your season is coming too, and you have to claim it. Regardless of what it is, relationships, career, legal issues or finances. Things will get better, but in the mean time, strut your stuff and act like the champion that you are.
