This year has been filled with many ups and downs, but in it all, I give thanks. Last year this time I was absolutely miserable and preparing myself to fly down to Florida to heal at my moms place. I told myself I wanted next years birthday to be much better and in a more progressed state of health and I got my wish! Just being in a stress free environment, fresh air, warm weather & sun, and an abundance of healing foods and essential oils really gave me the tools I needed to progress in my healing. This summer brought me to the best state I’ve been in awhile, allowing me to get out and about more frequently and in less and less pain. I found myself enjoying the heat on my skin more and truly just being appreciative of every pain free moment, spreading my arms out breathing in the fresh air and just enjoying natures design. The day before my birthday I was feeling melancholy, stressed and overwhelmed. Birthdays can be a reminder of what you have or haven’t achieved in the past year and going through TSW can make you feel like life is on hold. I started going through the long list of things that need to be done, and stressing over how it’s going to get done, and beating myself up for not being in a certain level of independence and “adulthood”. I picked myself up this morning and gave thanks to God. There’s much to be thankful and celebrated today and I had to remind myself of that. I have a roof over my head, food to eat, family and friends who love and encourage me and a better state of health that will only progress as time passes! I’m thankful that I have this platform to share my experience and be able to connect with and encourage others in this process. Your kind words and good vibes keep me going on sharing my journey and keep me motivated and inspired to continue learning and spreading knowledge on health and wellness. I look forward to my “new year” and having more fun and accomplishing more goals. 💜
