    I Complete Me

    Embracing my thyroid hair loss hat look 🤓. Thankful that it’s winter, and a special shout out to my Alopecia and cancer hair loss sisters. You do not have to be brave for me, or inspire me. I just want to say I see you and acknowledge how vulnerable hair loss makes us in a society which places extreme value in all of us with chronic illnesses being “whole again.”

    For me, courage is saying I may never be whole again—and that’s okay 🖤

    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.

    Every one

    Sometimes I have to try to be grateful for every sunrise.
    Not all sunrises are the same.

    Taking Care of Your Body is the Best Thing You Can Do for Yourself

    If you don’t have enough strength to do anything else, focus on taking care of your body:
    - Eating well
    - Exercise when you can
    - Resting when needed
    - Feeding your mind and your spirit

    Rainy Day People

    I'm in Dallas Texas and we're having torrential rain today and my body knows it. So I'm talking it easy today and enjoying the sound of rain on the roof and being thankful for all the blessings in my life... still walk like I'm 90 but hey... my mind and heart are in a good place! #ChronicBeauty #rainydays #littlepiecesofjoy #CheckInWithMe

    Today was a great day! I realize I can only embody the fullness of what that feels like because I’ve endured days where I couldn’t get out of bed ...days where I couldn’t see anyone... days where I didn’t have the courage to look some one in their eyes, knowing they were casting judgements on me! Days where I literally wanted to disappear, days I day dreamed about no longer being here. Days I didn’t want to even bathe, days where I used food to fill a void inside... days where I couldn’t stop crying..days where I was overwhelmed with shame and guilt while dancing in self pity. So today I’m not going to think about how far I still have to go. Today I’m going to rejoice in how far I’ve come. Today I’m going to stand in my power. Today I give gratitude to god knowing I have not done this alone. Today I will send positive vibes your way, today I’m sending you all the love and support even if today isn’t a good day for you. I promise it will get better just take it one day at a time!💜🌻✨✝️🌈
