    Play is Important 🦋

    I bought this kite for my inner child today. I had so much fun!

    What joyful thing does your inner child like doing?

    Need you help!

    I want to compile a list of celebs who have been open about their mental health struggles and those who are fighting to bring awareness to it. I count those struggling with addiction as well. #TheMighty #MightyTogether #MentalHealth

    Stifled Creativity

    I have always had a dream to write and illustrate a children's book and I have finally found my perfect idea. But... My depression isn't letting me start. My anxiety isn't helping the process either. I am bogged down by the idea that I won't be good enough, it will be a waste of time, it will take too much time away from my family. And the crazy things my mind tells me has me convinced that this is an awful idea and will ultimately just get people upset with me for doing this.

    How do I express my creativity and fulfill my dream when my heart knows that I want and need this but the demons that live in my head are constantly making me second guess myself and are constantly convincing me that I can't do this? #Depression #Anxiety #creativity

    Just one of my drawings....

    Healing with Music, Art, and Writing

    #UlcerativeColitis #IBD #Healing #creativity

    I have been relying on my creativity lately. I have been painting acrylic paintings, playing guitar and ukulele, and piano, writing blog articles, and working on my book about my ulcerative colitis journey. It is full of humorous poems and illustrations. :D It is finished and will be released by Oct. 1st. I'm excited! This will be my seventh self published book.

    I had my colon and rectum removed four weeks ago due to severe ulcerative colitis. Healing has been a bit slow but that was to be expected. It was very major surgery. I'm getting used to Ostomy Life, but it can be difficult some days. I feel much, much better overall though now that I don't have the inflammation from the disease. I was in pretty bad shape before the surgery.

    I'm attaching a photo of my tuxedo cat, Tracey who likes to sit on the piano when she shouldn't be...ha.

    What outlets do you have when you're coping with something big?

    Growing Pains

    Back in the day,

    We used to play outside till dawn

    Now, we're just another government pawn

    Back in the day,

    We used to live, laugh & grow

    Now, we are forced to work our asses off bro

    What is this shit? (mind my language)

    Death is a trap to try and get us to submit?

    As kids, we couldn't wait to be adults

    Now, I reflect and I am like that was truly nuts!

    The days when we could cry and be comforted

    Childhood turned to adulthood and those days plummeted

    Now, we're struggling to make ends meet, Who would have thought, childhood was only a treat

    But it's life,

    So put away that knife

    It is what it is -

    God is good, all is his

    Better days are ahead

    So, go and continue to chase that bread!
