    My Happy Places

    When thinking of happy places, I'll try to remember some of the happy trips I've taken with friends or family. This is in OH, where I visited a former college roommate this summer. #Travel #encouragement #Relationships #Beauty #Outdoors #Hope

    Hello, I think the beach 🏖 is an excellent way to #DistractMe and my mind! What about you? Where is your happy place? Where do you go when you need a distraction? #CheckInWithMe #Beauty #Nature

    Train your Eyes

    Whether you have a chronic illness, emotional issue or any other struggles in life, it is very easy to feel defeated and to constantly see the ugliness of life. However, it is because our lives are full of trials and trepidations that it is vital that we train our eyes to see the beauty that surrounds us. Because my chronic illness has robbed me from many things I love, I intentionally look for ways to see beauty. I find beauty in writing, reading and taking photographs. Would you believe that the first thing I took a photo of (photography art in my mind) was a mold on the ground?🙈 For some reason, the mold intrigued me. There was something in the way it existed, the color and the shape, so I snapped a photo. After, I edited, it, no one would have been able to tell that it was a mold. I wish I had kept it. It would have been really amazing for you to see.

    Anyway, moral of the story is, beauty surrounds us everyday. However, we need to be intentional and train our eyes to see them.
    Here’s one for you all! #Beauty #MentalHealth #ArtTherapy #migrainesufferer #HemiplegicMigraine #warrior #dystoniawarrior #Dystonia #Serenity #ocean

    "Happiness comes from within." I have heard before. However, what if it doesn't? What if it is something that must be created? Humm..

    Well, Today is the day for you to choose happiness.

    The Power of Our Community Is The Beauty From The Pain 💝💜💛 #Community #Beauty #ChronicBeauty #MentalHealth #Depression #Friends

    For every person in our lives that left us in the horrible ways that they did-
    We have new, amazing friendships forged here.

    For every person that treats us despicably-even family, friends, and even medical professionals, and adds layers onto our other related past traumas we have been healing from, we only have to open The Mighty app and reach out to each other and we can count on the most beautiful, empathetic souls reaching back to be by our side so fast.

    For every morning we wake up with pain coursing through our bodies and/or our minds from illnesses that are beasts, together we pull from each others’ inspiration and strength and we fight through each day as the warriors that we have become.

    For any time we feel so alone in this, we can always post or join in a conversation here and see that we are never fighting our fight alone/never dealing with the hard blows of this kind of life alone.

    For any time situations in our life cause very real anxieties that are overwhelming for anyone to handle, there is an army of us right here living in solidarity to help quell our anxieties.

    For anytime we feel like we don’t exist, that we aren’t seen, that we aren’t valued and valuable, so many of us Mighties will always quickly let us know how incredibly important each of us are, and how cared about we all are by so many of us from all places around the world.

    And this is all a great, bright light from the darkness. This is all a comforting balm to soothe the pain coursing through our bodies and our minds.
    This is what makes us all rich instead of feelings of living in scarcity.
    These are all the gifts that we have been given that is greater than any gift you could ever think you wanted.

    We are each others’ wings that allow us to soar above it all.

    Sorrow won’t be finding us no more when we know all of these things.
    Emptiness and hopelessness cannot exist when we know these things.
    We have so much to be joyful about.

    Let us all keep seeing all of the beauty and gifts from the pain.

    Let us all keep rising stronger together and show this world all of the greatness that we are, even on our worst days.

    Let us all continue to save each other and continue to save ourselves.
    That ultimately is the power we have and the responsibility we have - it ultimately is up to us to be the change that we want for ourselves and for others.
