What are your 2020 goals?

This picture is so true for me. 2017 was a year of change for me as I was no longer a kid anymore and needed to start my adult life. I was trying to figure out where I stood. It was a transition that came sooner than I was prepared for. Then 2018 is when my panic attacks started badly and I lost both of my grandparents within 7 months and I quit my job. 2018 broke me as I was grieving and going through anxiety. My stress levels were at its highest with family, school and my job before I quit. 2019, I started a new job I had minimal skill in, failed college courses, my panic attacks worsened, and I learned who my true friends were. With everything that went on this year I have now realized that it’s time to take action. 2020 will be a year of healing, meditation, action and dedication to turn my life around to how I want it. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. It’s my year to figure out what I really want out of life and what I want to accomplish. My year to set goals for myself. My year to start actually taking care of myself physically and mentally. My year to fully love myself. I aspire to be kinder, filled with love , friendship , strength, faith , hope, and courage. To not judge others and find support I need and to support others. I aspire to remember who I am. Remind myself I’m a child of God. To remeber I am worth it and I deserve to be happy.

What are you planning for 2020?

I would love to know. Share. Express.

Ready. Set. Go.

Keep Going!

Sometimes we all need this reminder; “just keep going”! For me, raising a child with special needs both educational and health, it seems hard, lonely and never ending. There have been some mornings when I have to tell myself multiple times, “Get up!” It seems like, I climb into bed, close my eyes for mere seconds before I’m either needed by my daughter or the night has ended and I need to get the day started.

Just keep going parents, siblings, friends, advocates...YOU; keep going! #keepgoing #dontquit ##BeEncouraged

Pain sucks, I’ve been living with nerve damage in my right leg for nearly 6 years. I’ve have had 5 surgeries in this time, and the nerve tumor keeps growing back.
No matter what pill or therapy I’ve tried, has a two week life, before it’s no longer effective.
My brain quit on me last year, planning my death, to escape the pain. The thought knocked me to the ground, “just die”.
From that moment, I decided to try pot for the first time in my 33 years on this earth, and I’ve been using pot to help relieve the pain. It doesn’t always work for the pain, but it does help repair my mindset.
I hope that if someone is reading this knows, that they can keep going, keep trying, even when their body is quitting.
I find daily victories, like; I had company, or went food shopping and I did a load of laundry. I try to pay myself on the back; and that has helped. ##keepgoing #dontquit #painsucks #thchero

When quitting is on my mind, positive quotes help soothe my rattled insides.


#dontquit #NeverGiveUp #youareloved #youmeansomething

In 4 days, it will be a year since the day I signed the papers terminating the rights to my son. And I'm having a rough go of it but tonight, a Texas A&M Aggie Proverb popped into my head "I've seen them win and I've seen them lose but I've never seen them quit" and how true this is. Several months ago I tried to give up and God said no, you have e a purpose and sent me back. Here I am today still wondering what that purpose is but knowing I'm here for good reason. So now, even knowing the world judges me for my decision to let my son go as well as the decision to attempt suicide, it's not up to them to make that judgment as no one ever has and never will walk my path. My path is mine alone. I don't have to walk alone but I am the only one who can walk this path through till the end. I beg you, all of you, suicide is not an option. And if it becomes that you feel this is your only way out, please reach out to someone, even if it's that person on earth you'd want to talk to. Find something that grounds you. Mine has become coloring and I'm back into my video games with my husband. I try to take life one day at a time but sometimes I still get overwhelmed such as it is. Always keep your head up and keep trying. And please, never give up hope.
