First, I apologize if this is scattered. It takes me so much effort & time to put thoughts in order, which you will understand ‘why’ in a moment. Thank you for your understanding and patience!
A few years ago I thought how therapeutic blogging would be. While that though came and went, as life happened, it is never truer than today! While it took me awhile to start, with the help of my amazing (computer wiz) brother I am finally starting this new adventure! Thank you for joining me!
In my journey I have found that MY REAL PASSION is to ENCOURAGE OTHERS! I love seeing others find what makes them smile and sets a fire within! THAT. That just makes my heart jump with joy! #findyourpassion
What led me to blogging, you ask? On December 16, 2016 my life changed and I started a new journey, where I would learn much about myself (and not always like what I learned). I have always been an independent, strong, outgoing and (very) social person. I’ve always tried to be positive, live life to the fullest and don’t put limits on myself! Because, after all, I CAN DO ANYTHING! With this ‘new me’ I have learned that I must pace myself and I simply cannot do what I did before… NOT YET! So, my blog will be a little of everything; Sharing life lessons and experiences, great products I find and some I make, and encouraging words and quotes.
THE SHORT VERSION
My Story: I was in a head-on collision (no fault of my own), that literally changed my world! I broke my back, cracked ribs, bruised lung, got a concussion, along with other multiple other issues; but the worst… the concussion (brain injury)! The broken bones healed (although still ache) but this brain! ugh. To add to the already injured brain, 2.5 months later, I was hospitalized with cerebral meningitis. Talk about a trying time and a walk of faith. For 2 years now I have been saying ‘I will be better’, and I WILL. For now I cannot do what I once did and as hard as it is to confess, I have limitations, I must. (and may I add, if you know anyone with a TBI, learn about it so you understand the beast they are dealing with).
I can no longer do my j.o.b. due to balance issues, inability to concentrate & remember, sensitivity to noise and lights, be on computer or focus for very long and how overstimulated my brain gets, with any and everything! I am finding what I thought I could do is more limited than I had hoped but I do what I can as my brain cooperates. I have always LOVED encouraging, helping people, sharing great products and been an entrepreneur at heart and had a home business!
I WILL NOT GIVE UP!
So, HERE I AM, the temporary new me, doing and sharing what I love! Trying my hand at blogging (I never would have guessed that!) and believing it’s part of my journey to healing. I truly believe everyone should find their passion, purpose, joy in life and a #sidehustle….for sooo many reasons that I hope to share with you. I hope to inspire you to find encouragement, opportunity, passion, and maybe even yourself while doing what you love!
I do have some side hustles which you can find on my site so please check them out! Before my accident I actually had energy and brain power to work all but now I do as I am able but still love them all. They are my therapy! My side hustles, which because of my #TBI, have become my main hustles (although I’m not able to do much still) are… Grit, Grace and Gratitude -encouraging others!!! #findyourpassion | Legal Shield/IDShield – Independent Associate | Rodan + Fields – Consultant | Junque Princess – Home decor, furniture and more! I am CEO of each of these and love every moment because I get to meet and help people like YOU!
ME summed up = ’Change your attitude and change your life!’ I’m a mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend till the end, a DREAMER, a doer, and yes, a Jesus Freak! To read more about me visit my ‘About Me’ Page.
