To uplift, to nourish, to inspire, to light up and to always turn towards the light.
Welcome to my new emblem - choosing the mighty sunflower has not been without a lot of thought. While my journey started with endometriosis, we are trekking through many other terrains of illness along the way so this blog is for all walks of the chronic illness life.
The sunflower 🌻 is an amazing specimen, reaching every taller to overcome challenges and always searching for the sun light. As I put it in a previous post - her halo is always seeking out the light, turning her nose up at adversity, shining in all her unique beauty and embracing her battle scars.
This illness battle, be it endo, fibro, depression or whatever you might be going through makes you stronger, with a little more knowledge, makes you wiser; and a rare beauty in a field of grey.
So embrace all the challenges you have overcome so far, look at how strong you have been and turn your face towards the sun, to shine a little light on the maze that is chronic illness.
Love this. Sometimes the hardest things we go through push us into the best things for us. Reflecting today. I’m so grateful for the good and for the struggles I had this last year.... I know I’m all the much better for it. I made a promise to myself after I got sick that no matter what I would make the most of each moment. I already have had so many amazing experiences. I can’t wait to have some more. #happysaturday#embraceyourchallenges#themiracleisalreadyhappening#beyou#liveyourpassion

"Your journey in life and your business will pass through doubt, fear, anger, selfishness, frustration, disappointment, hopelessness, self pity, resentment, worry, and cowardliness..."
Through all these challenges, only one thing will get you through... "FAITH"... It is all about “BELIEVING”... You don’t know how it will happen, but you know it will...”

"To some analysts, the fact that we are sending so many of our best and brightest young people into professions that are, let's say, not known for their level of personal fulfillment or deep social value is simply the continuation of the phenomenon that so many Riverdale teachers spoke to me about: kids who worked very hard but never had to make a difficult decision or confront a real challenge and so entered the adult world competent but lost" (Tough, 2012, p.184). #EmbraceYourChallenges#Learn#Grow#KeepGoing#KeepGrowing#Competence + #Confidence#Success

We live in a world society that makes us think that if we cry it means we are weak and it’s the opposite It shows STRENGTH. It shows not only that we are human beings but also in many cases like mine for example we can use it as POWER. I like to keep it real whether it’s good or bad I’ll always keep it Real with you that’s just ME.And that is my goal during my journey of Success , to keep it REAL with others especially during his or her process helping others become successful too , let them know it’s OK to cry it’s OK to take a time out when needed just don’t get out of the game especially the game of Life because it WILL try to knock you on your A*** what matters is you get back up and punch it back in the face and tell it you punch like a B***!

How will you ever grow or be elevated to the next level by being exposed only to “good and the best” people? The experiences and lessons from the bad and worst people in your life pushes you closer to your destiny. Everyone serves as a purpose; good or bad. 😉Matthew 5:44 KJV
 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
🗣I ALWAYS SAY THIS!!! Everybody wants to be WEALTHY, but the FIRST time a challenge arises they're the FIRST person out the door! You'll NEVER EVER become rich like that, EVER! Rich/Wealthy ppl own businesses, but all a business is...is someone had a problem, they CREATED A SOLUTION and then SOLD IT! How you gone SOLVE something you're UNWILLING to CONFRONT? #EmbraceYourChallenges#BeSolutionOriented
