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, […]

Feelings 💰🌲🏡🚽✈️💬

I don’t know why, but I am having such a wanderlust to go somewhere new and experience something new and to honestly take time for myself and to learn more about myself. Or is it just that I am anxious and so ready to be done living in our camper? It’s been since July 1st […]

7/25/2003 18 years!

July 25th, 2003 I was married in Negril Jamaica. It would have been my 18th wedding anniversary. That’s so insane to me. I was married a month before I turned 23. My husband was great, it was everything I ever wanted. But I was so young and life changed so much over the years that […]

3 Year Reflection 🧠

Main picture is at 4:32 pm on 5/16/18. It’s the last picture from that day. 15-20 minutes later my husband would get a call from my friend that I was in a bad accident just before 5pm he got the call. On 5/10/21 we went out to look at some homes to put on my […]

Jaxson is 16

Happy 16th Birthday to my son Jaxson. I can’t believe he’s 16. This kid amazes me daily with his strength and determination and no excuses attitude. He works so hard daily between school and baseball and conditioning himself in between both through strength training and mindset. I can definitely say I must have learned my […]

Understanding Your Brain Injured Friends

It makes me think of expectations that people have. Like people saying “well you haven’t called” or “you haven’t invited me over” as a reason why they don’t call or keep in contact. It makes me think of how so many people that we were pretty good friends with are no longer in our life […]

No Alcohol For 4 years!

4 years! I never anticipated I would remove alcohol from my life and be happy about it and one hundred percent ok with it. But I did and I could not be happier. Alcohol did not serve me. It was not what was best for me ever in any amount. I couldn’t just have one […]
