Sticking to my schedule

I did not want to workout today. But I’m sticking to my MWF goal to truly see how it affects me in a month with my TBI. I did a great tread bootcamp, it was fun and kicked my ass and made me push and run faster than normal with some short intervals. I’m determined […]

Happy New Year!

2021 was definitely not what anyone expected, nor was 2020. 2022 here we are! The last 2 years have taught me SO much. The last three and a half years taught me so much more. What’s important. What’s not important. What deserves my energy and time, what does not. So many losses, so many gains. […]

I got my permit today! I studied and I passed the test. I got my permit at 41 years old 🤣. I am so excited, but I am also so aware. Like I know I can’t see well at night with my glasses even so I won’t drive at night. I also know I won’t […]

R&R Much Needed

Rest & relaxation and being alone is often needed for me throughout this TBI journey. This is so not like me pre TBI. But it’s an absolute must for me now. So I had a week. I was losing my mind. Living in a camper plus 2 dogs and my husband, not being in the […]

Anything Can Happen

I am listening to Jess Ekstroms Audio book and she said this and I love it. I do not believe everything happens for a reason. I do believe you can find purpose in it all though. I have explained that in previous posts. But I do love this, anything can happen. So true. Good, bad, […]
