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

WE ALL MATTER ♡

As we go through life, we suddenly can lose loved ones in a blink of an eye. Everyday many around the world pass away. Through sickness, suicide, unexpectedly, or horrible tragedies in many ways.

It’s not something we can plan for. Thinking about all of us around the world, we all go through this. I captured this beautiful photo at a graveyard awhile back.
To stop and reflect on all lives. For those that I have known and those that I haven’t. Knowing everyone makes a difference and they are somebody. We are all someone beautiful. Whether gone or not should be respected and cared for.

In times now and ahead. May we always cherish the memories. Even if we may not know who one may be. For they are special too. There will be tragedies. As hard as it may be, it’s better to become a loving unitity then enemies.
Love all that’s gone and love all that’s here. Life’s short but see beauty in all.

We all will be together one day ♡

OWN YOUR EMOTIONS

Emotions are what we have on a daily basis. They are a source of feels that grow to making us a better person in all eays.

There’s no time limit on when we should stop feeling. You can still experience life and joy as long as you keep moving . Just own it. Own your feelings and embrace them.

Be yourself and release all the inner power you have. You don’t have to be brave all the time. Don’t worry about being happy all the time.
Our learning through emotions is what makes us who we are. Accept yourself. Release it. Love it and keep going.

MANY BLESSINGS AMONG YOUR JOURNEY

Finding happiness in all circumstances is very important. Joy is all around, whether you are enjoying a fun, sunny day. Or there are storms that come upon you. Sometimes there are calm and beautiful days.

Emotions that you feel inside, should be released. You don’t need to put a fake smile and feel that your feelings, experiences, dreams, knowledge, relationships, physical, emotional, spiritual or financial problems don’t matter. Because they do. Why?BECAUSE THAT IS YOU. YOU FEEL. YOU EXPERIENCE. IT’S YOUA.

Take every experience and turn it into your visions, passions, joruney, learning and move forward. Express your feelings no matter what day you’re having but still find joy in the moment.

No matter hard it may get or feel. Know you’re not alone. You are loved and appreciated. See it within. Now go live. Climb the trees, feel the breeze, watch the storms, or feel the peace. You are a work in progress, so make sure you are giving yourself the love, attention and opportunities. While doing so, others are following your example.

Experiences are what defines you. They are also beautiful examples to life others.

Love yourself and your passions

Finding yourself, lovingbyoursel, coming out of hiding on your passions brings so much joy.

I am learning and growing with my art, music, photography, writing, and a health journey. Realizing the only approval I need is from myself.

Fame doesn’t exist in my world. Visions and dreams do. As I continue to be a work in progress, my heart loves to see others progress towards their happiness. Fulfilling their passions and supporting themselves.

I surely love seeing all the talent in this world. We’re all amazing, beautiful and instruments for others in our gifts, love, support, and upliftment.

I’m not the best writer but I have accomplished few books on amazon. I’m not the best artist but I am me and Express which brings me joy. I’m not the greatest singer but it’s my passion and will make a cd one day. I have much lyrics and songs.

I would love to know what you do. What would you like to accomplish? What are your passions? Are you needing more support? Encouragement? Upliftment?
Well I would love to do what I can to uplift and help inspire you . For it’s important.

I waited too long and hid for awhile and let the world, my thoughts, actions, bullying, abuse and more take over. Use your experiences for good but move forward. You’re not alone. You’re amazing. Share xoxoo god bless. Keep shining ~jackie
