Settled In & Happy!

xmas2018

WOW! I’ll be glad to say goodbye to 2018 in a few short weeks, but I’m excited to share that I am now in my own place and received today a good bill of health from my cardiologist!  While it has been a rollercoaster ride, I am finally off the ride. I am now on a journey with God following His plan and living with less stress and better than ever health and much happiness!

It’s a good feeling when just two short weeks ago I felt like I was slapped in the face with some reality that truly set me back. The doctor confirmed what I was experiencing then was an ‘event’, but now that a little time has passed, I am no longer in jeopardy.  He also said I look better than I ever looked. Though, he also said that my heart does not tolerate stress very well at all anymore. So it is important, more than ever knowing that I could experience another episode of broken heart syndrome from stress, that I remove all the stress from my life that I can.

So here’s some things I will be doing in the New Year and encourage you to do the same, because stress is not worth getting sick over, or dying over! Take control of your own health and wellness. Change what you can change! That includes your reactions to those stressful situations!  I started reading my own book, “Break Down Your Walls!” and am taking my own advice about everything I learned over two years ago so that it is fresh in my mind again. You can get it on Amazon!

  • Read “Break Down Your Walls”
  • Start Your Day With God
    • Pray
    • Read Devotionals & His Word In the Bible
    • Journal
  • Use Young Living Essential Oils (believeinessentials.com)
    • For Overall Health, Emotional Support, and Spiritual Support
  • Meditate
  • Excerise – I love to take walks with God!
  • Spend Quality Time with Friends and Family
  • Join A Support Group and/or Church Group
  • Listen to Your Heart and Do What Makes You Happy!
  • Do Not Compare Yourself to Others
  • Do Not Judge Anyone – Everyone Has a Story
  • Be Kind to a Stranger – Pay It Forward – Give to Give; Not Receive!

Enjoy the journey you are on, and I wish you less stress in 2019!!!

Break Down Your Walls!

This is an understatement for me and when I saw this post I knew immediately I needed to elaborate a little on why!
change
God never said life wasn’t going to be hard, but He did say He would always be there for us and He would get us through. My relationship with God these past two years has grown tremendously, especially after my heart attack in 2016. He has given me so many signs over the years, but these last two years His prescense has been more and more visible to me through His Signs. I now know that with Him, I can get through anything.
Change has to come from us though, because we can’t change anyone else. We can only change our reactions. We have to learn what our limits are; our priorities; and, what we are willing to endure. Change is not easy and I think everyone would agree on that! With change there are lots of emotional battles fighting the change, which can lead to depression and living through some of the toughest decisions you will ever have to make or are forced to live through. Again, God never said life would be easy.
I can say though, that God has brought me this far, and God will get me through. He has shown me so many signs, left me so many messages that I feeled totally blessed to have been able to recognize. Again, this morning He took me back to my very own book, “Break Down Your Walls: Be the Person God Created You to Be…Be a Better You!”, and it was my very own words that got me through my morning prayers and reconfirmed His Will for me and lightened my soul knowing that I am taking the right path….His path for what I need right now.
This journey so far, for sure, has been eye-opening and the signs I have received …. absolutely unforgettable!!!
