I realized that it has been several months since I have written. The past several months have flown by in a heartbeat because there where many trying times with different situations that occurred both in my personal and family life. I was trying to juggle so many things at once that things just felt out of balance for me. Trying to aide my health holistically while at the back of my mind I knew that I would have to do an infusion of Ocrevus, working on finishing the school year with my daughter (since we home school her), trying to be there for my family as we deal with a difficult situation, and experiencing the first time loss of our beloved Shih Tzu. So much was going on, that at the back of my mind I felt the urge to quit doing the things I love. This is what happens when you are feeling overwhelmed and it took me several months to realize this. I tell you all of this because I want to be honest and real with you and want to let you know that when you are feeling this way you have to defy the urge to quit at all costs. As difficult as your current situation may be, continue to persevere and push on. You must and you will!
In my most difficult of times, I find solace in God. That quiet time between him and I in the mornings and evenings have been crucial in providing me with strength; mentally, physically and spiritually that I thought I would never have. Despite all of this you would never know how much I have overcome as a woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend etc.
Below I am sharing pictures of the past several months. In looking at them you would never know that I am actually legally blind, couldn’t walk at one point, and also have a daughter with an autoimmune condition. I share this with you because I do not want you to think that things are perfect when looking at someone else pictures. Quite the contrary, we have so much going daily that most of the time I have to take a deep breath to continue on. But I do tell you this and share this so that you do not quit and do not limit yourself in anyway. “Remember, that the only limitations are the ones we set up in our own minds.” – Napolean Hill
