Happy Veterans Day:
This time nine years ago I was preparing to go to #bootcamp. From sunny ☀️ #florida I made the trip to #chicago to spend 10 weeks in boot camp. Yep I was there through the winter. After a bunch of immunizations, cafeteria food, and marching through #snow ❄️, three wisdom teeth extractions, and a chronic cold that turned into a sinus infection. . . My legs started to give out. We all assumed shin splints, a few days marching in these shoes right here to give my shins a break from the boots. But it didn’t help. I pushed through my end of boot camp finals and past but the pain didn’t stop. After boot, I went on to schooling. I was placed limited duty, and the medication trial and error began. The extensive labs, medical tests, arguments with doctors and looks of disapproval or disbelief ensued for years. Family, friends, co workers. . . All of them couldn’t fathom -and many didn’t care to try-
Living with an invisible disease is the more discouraging, self worth crushing, dream crushing thing I have ever lived through. Everything hurt, all the time. That soreness after a three hour workout, plus the sunburn from a week at the beach, plus delivering a kid, plus stepping in an ant pile, while mosquitoes attempted to fly around and bite. . . That’s what I had. If you laughed or danced for a min or went to a theme park- you were lying about the pain. But the truth is some days you have enough guts to know you’ll be bed ridden for a week but God forbid you be stuck locked in your #home another moment without hope for the #future. And eventual it got to the point where the doctors had nothing left to say. According to their tests I was great. Their drugs had terrible side effects and many were rules useless by their tests but they promised it would help. No they don’t, they don’t help! So I choose to fight for myself, my life and my kids. With the same passion I brought to my fooor routine as a competitive #gymnast. With the same selfless desire to serve and #bravery to take on the world that brought me into the military, with the same trust in my body to have two children naturally I stood up for myself and said NO & found plants #hopeforthefuture
Nine years later, I pulled this pair out of my sea bag and began. It’s not a marathon yet, but it’s a future filled with hope and a purpose.
I have a heart for loving. Nonprofits, Mother Teresa, Refresh, Oprah, Ellen, Martin Luther King Jr. and on and on and on the list can go of those that have influenced and/or touched my hearts. Oprah actually mentioned that as a young adult she had opened her hand and said to the Lord, Use me. I just loved that! And that is the point I stand in my life right now. Use me, Lord.
At the same time I have had to learn to use my over active mind in a very structured way for many many many years. It was not until recently when I was reading Harv Eker and it pointed out the mindset of BOTH. Having the ability to solve problems and develop the chance to have your cake and eat it. Usually that is perceived to be around a negative connotation right up there with “Grass is always greener”. But he had a point that I could not shake.
I am an INFJ, a rare personality type according to the Myers Briggs psychological test, I have lived through many many varying experiences in one life time, and I have the heart to help others. This pretty much means. I am passion and driven to help a lot of people. Narrowing down my passions has been a struggle for years and I know it is why I have never been full contempt in any one job. I love it, I excel at it, and I work hard. Nevertheless, I always get restless. I want to do more.
I get that focus is a word I am really honing in on, but I am learning that for me, I can hone in on a few things very deeply. This fulfills a need in my soul to challenged, engaged, and of course, helping more people!
Crazy stuff, I know! If you’ve gotten this far I bet you are thinking, why this gal is way to into herself. But that is not it! I wrote this to expand why my why is big and my projects multiple.
In the words of Dr. Mike ” Don’t tell me the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon.”
Moving forward I cannot wait to see where in the Universe I will go and would love nothing more to have you along side with me!
Look forward to up and new content! I cannot wait!
Tomorrow is my birthday! Truthfully it is, but it is also a chance to change the world. Looking to tomorrow we can see where there is a need and meet it!

Save the boobies! (Just saying lol)
Everyone knows someone this has effected! It’s some of the most fun campaign across the nation! But the truth is (and of MOST cancer) that only a small fraction is caused by genetics and with proper PREVENTIVE measures we can sure fire limit the number of cases every year!
Yes love that there is a fight for a cure and so grateful my friends who have fought and won are still here with us! Even if a little worn from the intensive treatments! But there are are those that are not here any more. Cancer and cancer treatments take thousands.
I lost my grandmother this year to Cancer. I wish I could have done something more for her, but for YOU and your loved ones I can!
Flooding your body with fruits and veggies can be simple!
Plant based wellness and home care/cleaning. Is possible and affordable!
If you are ready to stand up for your health and the health of those you love please message me! I would love to join with you on the journey to save and prevent what can be prevented!
