As a person who is different I have always found I have faced more and or different barriers than others. I have compensated doing what I can do very well. I have always felt the need to go above and beyond to prove myself and to break down barriers in stigmas. I still feel this way but I now realize making life harder on myself For another person’s benefit is not something I necessarily have to do. I put that pressure on myself. And the people who want to be around me and like me for me shouldn’t be putting that pressure on me. Just seems like common sense now that I understand it but it took me forever to wrap my head around and now I have I feel as if life is going to be much different but different for the better. I’ll be living life for me…

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! With that I will say i’m weird when it comes to holidays. I don’t spend them with my biological family, why? because. Instead of chosen to spend holidays like Thanksgiving with friends and often it’s a really great time. This year though I decided not to do anything, I’m OK with that, and it meant I could stay in bed all day and do whatever I wanted. Why is this big for me? I am only now learning about myself and figuring out who I really am. I am an extravert for sure but I am also an introvert and love my alone time. For the first time in years I didn’t feel sad about not being with my family instead, I embrace it and loved every second of my alone time.

This post will be very different from anything I have posted on my blog and or my site ever before and could be triggeringIf you have ever dealt with an eating disorder of any kind. Earlier this week I went to my pain specialist, I have a muscle condition, and use a wheelchair, as well as mental health issues. I was talking to the nurse in front of the scale he was asking me if I added anything to my chair or if he could just use the weight he had on file for the chair. They weigh the wheelchair separately once and then they subtract to get your actual weight. I was nervous because I never actually weighed myself and since recovery I have gained weight I’m probably way more than I ever have. I’m trying to be OK with that. When my doctor came in and said, Doctor:…

You would think after getting beat up by the Garmin took yesterday I would be careful around things like that. Well today I needed to grab something from my storage room which is cordoned off from another room using a curtain. Guess what fell on my head – yup not only did the curtain fall, but the tension rod holding it up fell as well. Now that hurt. I thought I may have had another concussion but no I think it’s just a goose egg. I don’t know what’s worse the factI am used to this or that it keeps happening. I need to watch out, at the same time I’m just me living life, and it just happens. I can’t wrap myself in bubble wrap, although knowing me a trip over it and end up on the floor. Now that would be funny. I should say, I make myself…

Happy international day of persons with disabilities everyone. In the spirit of today I was going to make a video, but I thought twice only because I don’t have the energy required to make a video editing video and post a video. So, I thought I would blog instead. I don’t want this to be a negative posts so I am going to focus on the positive, which is what I do most days, and thankfully there is at least some I can talk about. I have spoken before about purpose. Quite honestly, I probably do it a lot. At this point in my life, purpose is what drives me, I don’t know if that would be different if I was “able-bodied”but I know I have always been looking for the why behind a thing. I think this is why floundering is so hard for me, I have a hard…

Sometimes you meet people out of nowhere and they stay in your life forever and sometimes you meet people that you’re just vibe with right off the bat. That was me today with my new hairstylist. I should say for any family who maybe meeting, I have not gotten rid of my old hairstylist, OG, I just need a change. I found one whom my manicurist recommended and it seems that we just get each other. Which is nice when you’re dealing with something like hair -being such a personal thing that we have to look at and wear all the time. Reflecting on today though are you ago I would not have even asked for recommendations and if I did I wouldn’t be one too reach out to other people I would’ve been too nervous were scared where as now today I did it without thanking about it which…

Some days could be considered “normal” “boring” or just same old, same old, until something happens, and this something was furry and four lagged her name is Mocha and she is my tailors daughter’s dog. She just made my day after some unforeseen things took place. Either way it’ll all work out and I was glad to have this little one to keep me company. I think she has become the unofficial mascot of the shop. I doubt she minds a bit. And to top it all off I got my dress fitted. What more could a girl as for.

Today I actually put myself first. That’s something I thought I would never say or do. It was in a little way but baby steps right. So let me take you back a step. I worked from home today because I had an appointment, Before the appointment I was dealing with an issue, it is really got resolved after some time but was a little annoying. Once I got home from the appointment I was so tired I can’t even tell you. So, I said screw it, and let myself sleep. Knowing that when I work from home and when most of my coworkers for it from home you do it because you need flex time so I knew I was going to make up the time that I “took off” if I hadn’t already, I didn’t take either of my breaks or my lunch at this point so I…

The key is learning that turning the page is OK. Starting a new chapter is how we grow and sometimes ending one book and starting A sequel is a necessary thing to do. Where ever you are in your story know that life is about the Journey not the destination. It sounds corny but every experience good or bad is more to the book. Don’t be a pop-up board book be an intellectual periodical that teaches someone something.

Be nice to people. You never know who’s the world you will change with your words.
