the-inside-my-head-tag

I received this tag from an amazing and very encouraging blogger Wendi from https://simplychronicallyill.com. She writes amazing posts that I find inspiring and she gives some great educational information for those with children. Not only does she battle chronic illnesses, but she is a fantastic mother that is devoted to her family! If you have not already had a chance to view her blog, I definitely encourage you to do so, you will never be disappointed with her posts and❤ I think she will inspire you just as much as she does me every day!❤

❇The Fun Rules❇

° Thank & tag the person that has tagged you

° Attach the tag photo

° Answer the ‘This or That’ questions that I have answered

° Tag 10-20 friends

🌸Here are my answers, I hope you enjoy!🌸

°How do you feel at the moment?

I will be completely honest with y’all, there is a mixture of gratitude for being able to meet so many great people through the blogging community and a tremendous amount of pain!

° What do you need more in my life?

What I need the most in my life is courage to make it through all the trials and tribulations that occurs.

° What would make you happy right now?

What would make me so happy I know will never actually happen, but I would still love for there to be peace among the world. Peace and love are so important in our lives, but also so neglected.

° What is going on in your life right now?

My husband and I are planning to move to a brand new city in a few months!

° What am I most grateful for? List 10 things.

  1. My husband that is always there for me in more ways than I could ever count!
  2. My mother that has always supported my dreams since I was a child!
  3. My mother in-law that has treated me like her own daughter since we first met!
  4. My 2 loving and precious cats that always greet me at the door and give never ending love!
  5. Even though my health is not great, I am grateful it isn’t any worse because it always could be.
  6. I have grateful to have a loving and comfortable home to come return to every day.
  7. I am grateful for a loving and compassionate family as I know many are not blessed with this!
  8. In all honesty, I am grateful that even though it is painful right now, I am happy that I am still able to walk. I thought when I was first diagnosed I would loss my walking abilities and be in a wheelchair in the first few years, but almost 18 years later my fears were not correct.
  9. I am incredibly grateful for all the friends I have made through the blogging community!
  10. I am grateful to have the opportunity to write about anything and everything I want to write about!!

° When did you experience joy this week?

I was over the moon excited that I received a top 50 MS bloggers recognition. I was so happy that my blog is actually helping others as that is my goal!!!

° List a small victory/success?

This is a rather small victory, but I managed to get some organization in our kitchen cabinets! I like things to be in an order that make it easy to find everything. I even like our can goods to be lined up perfectly and in alphabetical order. I know I sound a little crazy, but it looks nice!

° What is bothering me & Why?

If I am being totally honest what is bothering me right now and continues to bother me is how the government is behaving. I have always found politics very upsetting because I don’t feel the politicians are being honest, ever! It is very upsetting what I feel our president is behaving and harming the country.

° What are my priorities at the moment?

At this moment my priorities are taking the best care I can of my husband and 2 cats, but also trying to reduce my stress levels.

° What do I love about myself?

I think that I am a pretty compassionate and empathic person, so I find that to be something to be proud of.

° Who means the world to me & why?

My family means the world to me because they are the ones that are always there for me and never hold a grudge. They are understanding and extremely supportive. I do not want to single just one person out because family as a whole is important and we do not get a second chance for a family! Of course we do not get to choose our family, but I lucked out and have a fantastic family. My husband, mother, mother in-law, step father, father in-law, sister in-law, niece, aunt and uncle in-law (I think that is the right way to phrase it!) are all amazing!

° If I could share one message with the world, what would it be?

Always treat others with kindness and compassion because you never know what is going on in their lives!

° What advice would I give my younger self?

Never give up and aim for my goals.

Focus on what brings you the most joy and do not worry how others view that!

 ° What lesson did I learn this week? 

I have learned that you can not fix anyone else’s problems, but you can only fix yourself. I always wanted to fix everything for everyone else, but am slowly learning you can not change or control anyone else! This is rather frustrating for me because I try to be the fixer in everyone’s life!

° If I had all the time in the world, what would I do first?

Without a doubt I would travel and definitely write the book I have been dreaming about writing!

° What’s draining my energy?

Negativity of the world is EXTREMELY draining!

° What does my ideal morning look like?

Opening the windows to the beautiful sight of the ocean! 🏖Of course this only happens on vacation at the beach, but it would be amazing if I could have this view every day!

° What does my ideal day look like?

I guess if I stay on what my ideal morning would look like, my ideal day would allow me to see the ocean every day. 🏖I find the sight and sound of the ocean absolutely amazing and incredibly relaxing. When I am near the ocean is the only time I do not feel any stress at all!

Now if I am being logical, my ideal morning would start off slow and carry onto a job that I really enjoy and am passionate about, not just going to the job for a paycheck! I would love to be able to meet my husband for lunch, as it is always refreshing to have some us time during the day. Then I would envision coming home, being able to relax after a long day at work, then have dinner with my husband and of course have our beautiful cats nearby!!

 °What makes me come alive?

I think positivity makes me come alive where negativity destroys my ability to come alive!

° What/Who inspires me the most?

Even though my grandfather is no longer with us, he still inspires me greatly! My grandfather was an amazing man with a heart of gold. He was always offering his help to everyone that needed it. He did not know hate and never judged anyone, which I appreciate. I have never and never will be judgmental of anyone else! I think my grandfather and I think alike on this, we are all human no matter what our color, sexual preference and religious beliefs are!!

° Where does my pain originate?

My pain originates in my back and legs and sometimes with a bad migraine!

° What are my strengths?

My strengths are my ability to be compassionate and understanding of others. I always try to see things from their point of view and try helping from that stand point. I have a tendency to always want to help others in any way I can!

I do my best to hide the pain I am feeling and just enjoy life the best I can and also try to make everyone around me happy!

° What is something I’ve always wanted but too scared to get?

I would love to go rock climbing, but I am a little scared because of the issues with my legs. But, someday I hope to do this!!

° What is something I would love to learn?

I would really love to learn Yoga. I have heard how beneficial Yoga can be, but I just do not seem to have the patience to teach myself by watching a YouTube video. I never know if I am doing it right, then I get frustrated with myself and give up!

° Where would I want to live my ideal life?

I would love to live at the beach! But not just any beach, I would want to live at a beautiful tropic beach with white sand and amazing waves!!

°Where would you like to travel in the next 5 years❤?

This is a great question! I actually want to travel back to Jamaica, where my husband honeymooned❤. I would like to do this for our 10 year anniversary which will be in 2021. I have some time to plan this, but I think it would be magical❤!

° What can I do to take better care of myself?

The most important thing I could do to take better care of myself is learn to reduce my stress. Stress is a killer and causes so many issues for everyone, but especially those with MS.

° What hobbies would I like to try?

I would like to try scuba diving. I love the ocean and ocean life, so I think it would be fascinating! My husband and I tried it briefly on our honeymoon, but I want to do more and be more comfortable with it!! My mask did not fit when we did it, so I would definitely need a smaller mask!

° When have I done something that I thought I couldn’t do?

I would definitely say snowboarding! When my husband first introduced me to snowboarding I never thought I could do it, but it has been about 8 years and I have gotten a little better.

° At the end of my life, what do I want my legacy to be?

I would want my legacy to be that I was a kind and understanding person that people enjoyed being around and felt comfortable sharing with.❤ I would hope people would remember me as always being willing to help and offer great advice, of course advice I never took for myself though!

  2. This is a brilliant tag & it’s great to read your responses. In the UK, I can empathise with frustration regarding politics. And as for organising the kitchen cabinets, that’s no small achievement, that deserves a big pat on the back! Want to do mine? 🙂

    • Thank you so much! I typically do not like mentioning politics as it seems to be a sensitive subject, but that is the thing that bothers me the most! Are politics in the UK as bad as the states? I would love to do yours for you!! It was actually lots of fun for my crazy little mind!!
