Today is the First Day

  • Why I chose this particular path & why I am sharing my Journey with you…
  • What I am passionate about, what makes me so excited people think I am just being sales y or spam-my, and what my true mission is.

There are two parts to every story is what we are so often told. And it usually rings very true. So, as in other stories mine has two parts as well. It has been a long journey just reaching this point. That point where I am ready to share, and in doing so re-write MY STORY. Redefining my future self and stop the cycle of spinning in circles.

Today is the First Day Of the Rest of My Life

It has been a bitter sweet 17 years struggling to find some sort of ‘normal’. I refused to not be that ‘normal’ and I think that may have played a huge role in me finding a way to move forward, perhaps one more, or one last time. So, why would I share my story with you?

Because we so to often judge a book by it’s cover alone without even flipping one page. We look at what we see on the outside and make a decision based on what, an assumption? I don’t want to ever do that again, nor do I want you to do that.

We need to be kinder and gentler with others for we don’t know their story. We don’t know that perhaps something terrible just happened in their life. Instead we assume. If I didn’t share what was and had happened to me you might just assume I was another one of “those network marketers” trying to sell you something or getting you to join my pyramid scheme thingy!! Of course you would. It is in our nature to assume or have doubts. We have grown up with this…media, internet, parents who didn’t know different and it goes on.

Don’t misunderstand. It is healthy to be skeptical, especially when it comes to the internet and joining things. But being skeptical and assuming are two different things.

You could assume that my world was all rosy and bright and that I could or would never be able to understand or have empathy with anyone else who has gone thru any kind of crisis. Yup, a little normal in today’s world. Or you could just be skeptical about the truth behind the words.

What else is normal is hiding what is really happening. Sometimes it’s because it is too painful for you to share and sometimes it’s because you think you are less than other people because you have an illness or disability. Like you are not worthy of having or being or doing more with your life so you settle.

I don’t think you or I are the only ones who ever felt shame and guilt around having your feet knocked out from under with no warning. ( for me, literally) It is easy to point that finger inward and cry out to God asking what did I do that was so so bad? It’s easy to find yourself depressed and lonely and that is why I am for the first time sharing my story…Hell, I am re-writing my story for whatever time I have left. And, if it helps even one person go beyond what is happening in their life then it is so so worth being this vulnerable.

Part One

And the other half of that is I want everyone to know that you have it inside YOU to change anything you want in your life. Will it be easy? Probably not but if you can rise above what you see and feel and paint a new picture of what your life can be then you can achieve it. Others have…I am…and that means so can you.

I felt it and it was REAL. Seriously real.

No it doesn’t matter what your age is…you can be 20 or 30, 50 or even 60 or 70++. Don’t let anyone and for sure don’t let your mind tell you it cannot be done or you cannot have and be more if that is what you want for your life. I am here to tell you, YOU CAN!! Don’t let any underlying beliefs you might have limit you or hold you back from your ‘MORE’! Big things are coming. Because they are… if you say so. You just have to say so.

No matter what has happened to you in the past, or what pain and challenge you’re going through now, you CAN live a life you absolutely LOVE living. It’s not always easy, but it can be that SIMPLE. All you really need is You really, really wanting it and then keeping it simply simpler.

And that’s a wrap…

Got a thought or question...share right here we'd love to hear from you!
