A very lucky view. I’ve decided to change my account up again. I realized that I don’t want to show you everything I’m eating. It’s an important factor in my weight loss and health journey, but it’s not everything, and it stresses me out to always be thinking about my phone or presentation! Instead, I’ve decided to document moments, whether they include food or not. Food is a huge part of my life. It’s a creative outlet for me, so there will definitely be some food pics and recipes, but I want to document this journey in a way that feels good to me. There’s been a change in my health, for the better. I’m not sure if it’s because the seasons changed, because of what I’ve been doing to help myself, or if it’s simply my body getting better with time. Time has been a huge factor in my healing. But I wanted to stop in this moment and think about where I was last year around this time. I was still where I am now, but my health was much worse, and my life was completely miserable. It was the months following one of the biggest breakdowns of this time for me. It’s so easy to lose everything when chronic illness hits, especially if you haven’t saved up for it and weren’t rich to begin with. I certainly hadn’t saved up at the age of 26, and I’m certainly not rich! So everything came crashing down around me. It’s crazy to see how quickly things can fall apart. And at the same time, a part of me feels lucky to have seen it. I understand better. I see people who are struggling better, and I understand them. I see disabled people so much better now. I see how life can turn upside down quickly, and how people leave us in the dust. I’ve decided I’m fine with it. With being left in the dust by some. I will dust myself off and never look back at them. I am working to change my whole life for the better. I’m finally thinking about EXACTLY what I want, and working to go after it, even while I don’t have much. I’m rebuilding my life from the ground up. Symptoms may come and go, and I’m not entirely sure what to say about that, but I’m okay with not knowing what to say. We’ll take everyday as it comes💜 . . #chronicillness #healingfromchronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #keepgoing

Raising this Princess with little to no help has not been easy. Throw in a 9-5 job, weekend job and entrepreneurial hustle and you’re looking at a potential mental disaster!! 🤦🏾‍♀️ ✨ But the truth is, for me, I’m so happy and rejuvenated daily by going after my passion. Before I had a child, I experienced depression and all sorts of negative thinking. I’m not saying go have a baby. Lol I’m saying that regardless of what’s on your plate, you can find joy and pursue your dreams & desires. ✨ Here are a few ways I stay joyful: 1) I stay in a place of #gratitude by constantly being thankful. 2) I remain organized by laying out our clothes and packing our bags every night, writing and looking in my planner consistently, sticking as closely to my schedule and having a place for everything in the home. 3) I #journal nightly. A short two paragraphs most times. 4) I listen to motivational videos or #podcasts. 5) I #read daily. Books that motivate me and stimulate my mind. ✨ So, no secrets 🤷🏾‍♀️. I found choosing the life you want for yourself is half the battle. The other half is getting started and being consistent. Sometimes we need a coach to help or a real breakdown to force us to get on track. You can overcome anything!! I definitely believe that you can make it happen. ✨ 📸: @ttortasil #Daughter #Princess #Mom #ItsInTheBag #Manifesting #TheSecret #KeepPushing #Motivation #PowerPlayers #ChronicIllness #ChronicIllnessWarrior #Dreams #Visions #ForTheLegacy #SickleCell #Bermuda #LifeCoach #PurposeDriven #HungryForever #BornAnEntrepreneur #NaturalAchiever #Leader #EntrepreneurLife #Metanoia #SalintaeT

This is my mantra ❤️ Sometimes not being able to do the “normal” stuff others do, is so hard on my confidence. There are days I can’t get out of bed or make dinner for my family. Sometimes I can’t empty the dishwasher or do laundry even though it’s critical. I do not have a choice. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I can only do what I can where I am with what I have. ❤️ I have a hero, who is always there for me, lifting the burdens the best he can. He is my husband and my rock 👫 @menduserjoikkesygud #menduserjoikkesygud #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpain #lif#lifewithpain #myhero #myhusband #myhusbandmyhero #dothebestyoucan #withehatyouhave #whereyouare #quote #life #motto #kro#kroniker/a> #kroniker #kroniskesmerter
