    Image and words are from @papercrumbs 
All of my life, I’ve collected quotes, paragraphs, lines, words, images, and those little paper fortunes that come inside the cookie at your favorite restaurant.

Consequently, whenever I needed a pep talk, a reality check, or a good giggle—I knew exactly where to go—the journal that I pasted all of these things into! 
Do yourself a favor, start collecting whatever bits of inspiration, beauty, and encouragement find you. Keep them in a safe place.

    Port is out! At last, at last, my port is out! 
Complications (of course) brought in an extra surgeon, IV sedation, 2 extra nurses, and lengthened the procedure by an hour, but its done!

The story in a nutshell: my port was way, way deeper and more tethered than they've ever seen. They had to call in an extra surgeon to help. They had to widen and deepen the incision, give me IV meds to calm the anxiety, and then clean out all the tethers after they pulled out the port. Everyone said it was the deepest, most difficult port removal they've ever had. And it should have been done under full IV sedation, not local anesthesia. (It was scheduled wrong and I got the department head involved personally on my case. He will be bringing hell upon the nurse who scheduled me and is personally doing all my follow up care.) Sore AF and already bruising, but so happy to be done with that! 3.5 years later, sayonara!  #hodgkinslymphoma #survivor #cancersurvivor #portremoval #chemoport #chemo #happy #successstories #iwon #fuckcancer #ouch #surgery #scars #cancer

    Pictured with Betty Cohen a wife, mother, fighter, volunteer, remarkable woman, survivor. The strength on display was incredible. When she left us she said, "Be happy!" This young woman of 98 years reminded us what it means to live. So resilient. So grateful. #holocaust #survivor #neveragain

    I toyed with the idea of making this page for a while. I went back and forth on whether or not I should keep it anonymous or share it with people I know, and I decided that this is just for me. I’m hoping this can be a space in which I can be open and honest and share my struggles but also my victories. Feel free to reach out and join me for the ride. 💕

    My aunt found this picture in her attic (was grandpas house). 41 years to the date. My mother is a warrior. In this picture she was a high school dropout.  Years later (1994) with three kids she quit her job, moved to Oklahoma and went to college. Got her bachelor's, got her masters both degrees in 4 1/2 years.  Reading the back of the picture paints a picture in my mind how she was just a regular 18 yr old writing girlish things. My mother the survivor has instilled strength in all her children. Her will to overcome odds is an  inspiration for any single mother that may feel their back is up against the wall. If my mother can make a change for herself and her children any woman who is raising kids on their own can too. #ladysyoucandoit #survivor #will #mindovermatter

Today I had the privilege to tell my story about being in foster care to a bunch of foster kids. I told them I was a product of alcoholism of poverty, of abuse. I told them sometimes the odds are stacked up against us and the past may not be our fault but the future will be. I told them as of today I have been sober my entire life. We are the authors of our own perspectives that shape our lives no matter where we come from or what we’ve been through. Lighting was cool so I made this video with the amazing @fawnwood song “Remember Me” go buy it on iTunes! 🙏🏽 #supaman #illuminatives #fawnwood #fancydancers #secretgigs #apsaalooke #fosterkid #fostercare #overcomers #resilient #survivor

    Don’t trust everything you see. Not everyone’s lives are as perfect as they make it out to be. People o my show you what they want you to see. Focus more on yourself and your own life and you’ll see the benefits. Now go get that watering can... 🌾

    Your worth is not defined by any of those things. You owe yourself the love and care that you give so freely to others ♥️
