Light Shines

Light will shine even on gloomy days. You must seek within to see the outside.
No one is more perfect, greater, or important.

We are all being perfected. We are all a work in progress. Each of us takes our own steps in our own time.

I am not perfect. I do not have all sunny days. For I acknowledge and accept what is and what can be. I work hard to strengthen myself. Yet, in my way and my time I see the light within not only myself but in all others. We belong ♡

Trials Build You Up

As I take a moment to reflect all that I have been through and all I am going through, I truly am blessed.

Some may say ” Why would you be happy of the challenges you’ve endured?

Because they turned out to be even more blessings. Having challenges since birth, being adopted, fighting through depression, anxiety, bullying, self-confidence, 2 hard and abusive marriages, and numerous health issues. Failed acdf surgery, 9 surgeries which leaves pain, scar tissue, and more health issues.

I became stronger. All these lead me to help others in their relationships. To have empathy for those with type 2 diabetes, cervical stenosis, depression, anxiety, stage fright, neurapathy and more. Yes, I battle daily with pain, discomfort, highs and lows. Dropping things, restless nights, tears, sadness, and more. But I still smile. I am stronger each day.

Do you know I am still capable with all I have physically and emotionally going on, but the trials my loved ones are going through, the ability to still manage my life.

I have an incredible husband who is so strong, romantic, so loving to his kids and myself and others. Hardworking as a powerlineman working on his journeyman. So spiritual and funny. He truly is my best friend. Through all struggles and we both had 2 bad marriages, he was a single father that has blessed me to become a stepmother and friend to a 8yr princess ( daddy’s girl) and a 19 yr old young man . I’ll never ever replace their mothers but I will continue to love and support as they are my own.

Blended families are a challenge but such a blessing. Same as being adopted. My trial gave me 2 amazing parents and had 9 kids and adopted my twin sister and I and 2 brothers. Family forever. Unselfish, enduring love. So yes, I’m grateful for the foster care to lead me to a forever home.

The talents of singing, lyric writing, photography, art, crafts and more lead me to others to uplift, understand and love. Fighting my stage fright and coming out of my shell. Yes, the trials, bullying and low self esteem have led me to increased blessings. I’m finding my outlit and rising and doing all that I love.

Schooling to be able to go to college at 36 and a beautiful job from home where I can get my degree in family science to help others. To fulfill a long time dream. And to be blessed to work from home, be a mom, and love my husband more. To help provide while he seeks another lineman job from being laid off.

Yes physically, emotionally, financially challenges come upon us. In our own life, family, friends and those all around. So why do I smile and thank God for all my circumstances, even when I desperately want them gone at times? Because I am beautiful. I am talented I am strong. I emphasize, love, bring laughter, tears, heart, soul and upliftment to myself, my husband, my family and all those I can. That’s the beauty of it. To be there. To uplift and inspire. Serve others. Know the pain and go through emotions with whoever. Be an example.

Why I love life . Family is everything. We are all beautiful and family. We have so much to offer .

Take your trials and just ponder and see all the work and service you can do too. Not easy but oh so wonderful.

Keep shining and smiling. Know you’re loved and prayed for

Self-esteem Courage & More

Self-esteem is a trial that since I was little, I have and continue to overcome and build up. Whether it’s being a good wife, daughter, stepmom, friend, sister, singer, writer, photographer, student or other passions I love.

After having dealt with changes in relationships from abuse, dealing with bullying, health issues and more. I’ve found that the greatest joy is lifting myself up and having others being lifted too. Whether in my own family or out in the world.

One reason why I post. Not for numbers. We’re all beautiful and not a number. It’s to help fight stage fright. Work on my dreams and passions. Closer to my degree in college to help others. Find joy in all circumstances.

Know you are amazing and beautiful in your own way. Never compare. Take steps in seeing this within. Worse bully is yourself. Yet, let yourself experience emotions and use your gifts to Express. Go find you. Love you. Enjoy you. And be nice to yourself . Share that with others. No one is more important. Go get it I support and love you. As I am doing same for me.

You Are Seen ♡

Have a blessed day. I think and pray for you all. In all circumstances. Know we have our days, but we get through. You’re someone special. You have a purpose. Believe in it. Feel all the feels.

Just know you are thought of and loved. Even when you feel like you don’t matter or no one checks on you. You honestly are thought of, loved, and supported . I feel it. I see you. I notice. I can’t change circumstances and I know how it feels, but I can support you in my heart and be there .

3 key words that help me….ALL IS WELL

Thoughts for the soul ♡

Wherever you are and whoever you are, you are enough. No amount of weakness, sickness, trials, judgment, flaws, success or failure can take that away.

You have to believe in you. Believe that you matter. Your voice, your color, your talents, your soul, your passions, your heart, and most of all yourself .

I believe in the deepest of all souls. In the right to make your own decisions and free agency. Yes, I get judged, bullied, talked about, push aside and other things. I’ve been down and heartbroken. My weakness have tried to get the best of me.

Yet I am working on my progress. On my depression and anxiety. My diabetes, pain, discomfort and other health issues. Working at become better financially. Working towards a more wonderful relationships with my husband, step kids, family and friends. Forgiving. Accepting and moving one step at a time.

Using my passions of singing, writing, photography, art, crafts and more to better understand myself and others. Sharing my experiences and fighting stage fright.

Is this easy? Ha!nothing is easy. If you want something you have to work for it. Just as others do the same. May not be your way. May not be your thing. Yet, we are all in the same boat, just different places. We all matter. Go find yourself. Go uplift others. Telling myself the same. We got this.

Thoughts for everyday upliftment

All the best

WHAT I SEE. WHAT DO YOU?

What I see is different than what you may see. Same as in each other on this beautiful earth.

Life is a beautiful opportunity and blessing to get to experience, love, learn, grow, react, feel, see, and express.

Art is an expression I love in many different ways . Just as seeing others in how they act and react. How we all Express, love, and use our passions and gifts in this world.

It’s a beautiful thing. Choosing light instead of darkness. Creating magic . Look within yourself, in what you do and become. Look within others and see their worth too.

Just Get It

As long as you’re doing. As long as you are living up the moments in whatever emotions you feel. You are doing it.

You decide. You embrace. It’s your life. Your emotions. Your passions. Your choices. Don’t let others interfere with your life. Choose the good. Work through the bad. ENJOY THE SECOND YOU HAVE. JUST GO WITH IT.
Whether it’s an emotional , spiritual, or physical moment. Own it. Live it. Love it and just go get it. Be the joy . NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS. WE ALL MATTER
