I Go Red!!!! 💃🏽#nationalwearredday2021
I have participated with #GoRedForWomen❤️ faith based initiatives for several years. I loved being a part of #havefaithinheart and #empoweredtoserve It was something about getting information out to the community about stroke and heart disease that I absolutely love.
On November 5, 2018 all of the information that I shared, with others, I now needed for myself. After my first day on a new job, I was rushed to @thechristhospital and it was determined that I had suffered a stroke. It’s been a journey for my family, my friends and myself. Fortunately, the quick response by a school secretary and a school nurse got me the help that I desperately needed.
After leaving the hospital, I was in speech therapy for months and I eventually entered counseling to deal with the depression and anxiety of everything that was going on in my life.
I Go Red for myself, my family, my friends and to inspire others with my story of resilience.
My prayer is that my life experiences are a blessing to others. Remember, we are blessed to be a blessing.
I encourage you to
💃🏽Know your numbers.
💃🏽Choose to move.
You can’t help others heal if you are not well.
Last year I signed up to work with Denise Bryers and through her program I learned the importance of working out and eating well. I began her program weighing 315 pounds. Not only do I now workout on average of 10 times a week, I eat mainly whole foods and I have lost a little over 51 pounds.
I look forward to sharing my story and I pray that it blesses and motivates others.
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
In March of 2020, after our governor announced a “Stay At Home” order because of Covid-19, I signed up with a local trainer who was offering an online workout program live on Facebook. I figured I could support a small business and maybe this would help me lose the weight that I had been carrying for years.
The end result was me discovering parts of myself that I never knew existed even though they were always present. As of this moment I have lost nearly 50 lbs and I have never felt or looked better. My days are now filled with at least 1-2 workouts, healthy meals and encouraging others that if I can lose the weight, you can too.
Today we are thankful for so much. 🙏🏾
The selflessness of others.
The kindness of others.
Today we pray for so many who
Are in the hospital.
Are mourning the loss of loved ones.
Are essential workers.
Are missing the community of church and family.
Today we know that
We should have an attitude of gratitude.
That if we look back over our lives and think things over,
God has always provided.
If we can’t thank Him for this, we can thank Him for that.
In all things give thanks.
Evolving Takes Werk – Episode 10 – Evolving Takes Werk
Sometimes you can find love at an inconvenient time in your life.
It’s both magical and annoying.
Soul searching and reflective.
Demanding and rejecting.
Later, you realize that it wasn’t love.
Rather, the illusion of it.
Only illusions are painful.
