“You’re so plucky, I love it!”


A few weeks ago someone said to me, “You’re so plucky, I love it!” And I had to google what the word meant since I didn’t know 🙈
That being said… ☝🏼it’s one of my new favorite words and after learning the meaning, I took what she said as such a compliment. It’s a word I’m sure many people who deal with chronic/invisible illnesses would be proud to be described as.

Thursday’s Tips & Tricks: Don’t Be Afraid of Taking The Leap

Thursday’s Tips & Tricks 💠
Don’t let an opportunity scare you! If something excites or interests you, take a chance on it. Maybe you don’t have all the aspects figured out–but just say yes and everything else will fall into place after. Change can be scary but change can also be awesome. 

  
Don’t hold yourself back from something just because you’re worried it won’t work out or because you don’t have all the parts figured out. ☝🏼️ 

Thursday’s Tips and Tricks: Wave Bye Bye To All Them Haters 👋🏼

All of my Friends enthusiasts will appreciate this week’s Tips and Tricks advice:

It’s hard not to feel uncomfortable, nervous and afraid when you decide to put your story and journey out in the public for people to see. I know I was hesitant for a while when choosing to share very personal blog posts about my health journey on things like Facebook, where everyone can see and read about what I’m going through. 👀

Here’s the truth, y’all: Some people will encourage you. Some will judge you silently. Some will praise you for being brave enough to share. Some will question you and everything you’re facing. 

But no matter what ☝🏼️ just keep the mindset that those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. 👌🏼 If you get questions or judgment from outsiders, just pull a Joey and don’t put any thought or care into what they’re saying 🙅🏼Because you’re awesome and brave, and sharing your story matters to so many! 💛💛 do you booboo 💁🏼 

Tackle Your Tuesday

Even when you hit your lowest point, take some time to recharge and then get back to fighting. Putting in effort time and time again even at our weakest will pay off way more than if we just throw in the towel and call it quits. I’ve tried both, and I never saw myself grow or progress even the slightest when I chose to give up.

Keep fighting, you beautiful soldiers. 🌺💪🏼🌺

What’s the Word? –Intrepid 

  
What’s the word?

📍Intrepid
People with any physical, mental, or emotional struggle who put themselves out there and share their stories–they can be described as intrepid. 

In any case, those of us who put ourselves and our stories out there are fearful of the future and fearful that we’ll never see progress, find answers, or be judged along the way. However, we are living boldly, bravely, and fearlessly. 

Keep on, keepin on 👏🏼

Tackle Your Tuesday 

If you believe, you can achieve ✨   
 me and my brother entertain ourselves way too easily 😂
But on a more serious note, give yourselves a daily reminder: no goal is too big, no dreams are too far out of reach. Be strong in your efforts and courageous to take on slightly intimidating goals. You’ll be surprised what you can accomplish.

  

   

Monday Mantra 

  
Trying to adopt this and implement it in all aspects of my life today, next week, and beyond. 

Fear is inevitable (for most people. Superman, Morgan freeman, and Chuck Norris excluded, obvs). There’s nothing wrong with feeling fear. It doesn’t make you weak or inferior. It makes you human. Don’t let people tell you to not be afraid. Frankly, because no one else besides you knows what you’re up against.

However, don’t let that fear take over your life. Instead, let it fuel your fire and push you toward learning how to strike that fear from your life.

Don’t let fear hault your progress. Don’t let fear make you stop in your tracks, because what’s life if not a journey? Fear is just a small part of it.
