I am so thankful for friendships I know I write about friendships a lot but to me it’s the best gift you can get.   My birthday is coming up and I’ve been asked what I want and I don’t want anything.   People are my favorite gift.  I don’t want things just to say you gave me something,  love, family and friendships is what is important to me!

“The greatest gift you can ever give to others is unconditional love and acceptance.” — Brian Tracy.  I believe in this people are the best gift you get friendships that are always accepting of who you are.  It’s not always easy to feel accepted or making new friends;  when you are different or have a disability as the world sees difference!   That is  disability is,  a difference and everyone is different!

I just went to a friend’s funeral whom I never showed her how much I enjoyed her friendship because I thought she was healthy and would around for a long to come. It’s so sad and hard knowing that everything can change so fast. So be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you always!

You are helping someone right now even if you don’t think so.   It might be thought your outlook, maybe textting someone just to let them know that they are loved may be your words are what keeps them going even if you think it’s not enough it is!   Always do what your heart tells you,  when it comes to supporting someone;  you can never go wrong if you know you can help do it.  There are so many people who are hurting or lonely and don’t  feel loved.  You can just send a simple text not knowing how it would help someone.   Giving to others in the best gift you can give,  and its needed more than anything else!    Just Give and Love!

These last few days I been wishing a friendship would come back.   I know somehow it’s still apart from me but there are days when I wish my heart felt a little different but I don’t,  I do;  I know I can always think about it and it makes me happy and I know we always have that.   All that to say people are my best gifts and this week I’m thankful for amazingly friendships.

“Being a little weird is just a natural side effect of being awesome.” — Sue Fitzmaurice  Be who you are because there is only one of you and is amazing!   !  !

Why can’t we just do what our hearts is telling us to do?   It’s a question I ask myself when I listen to what my heart is telling me that I could do;  but I don’t think I can!   Or I don’t want to do it because people might think weird.   When I don’t care how people see me,  I should just do it, and see where the journey go on leads me to;  but no it is not that easy….  I want to love others so much to where I make them uncomfortable or think I’m crazy; when I should not let  others tell how to love.  But I don’t really understand how often we say I love you but we don’t really mean it, I do maybe too much but I am good with it.   Because there is not enough of real love;  it is so needed!

Dear you!

I have been following some different life coaches on facebook.  I’m wanting to become a life coach;  I think it would be awesome not because I want the title behind my name but I think it would help in my goal of having my own business or on line community,  be for now I just lean from other life coaches the idea of going back to school lol; does not sound fun!  But anyway these a life coach who does a ”dear you”, I love it.   I think I’m going to start doing it, let’s see how it goes!
Dear you,   I can see your difficulties , difference I understand hiding them and be so called nominal would be easier,  to make friends,  to become independent,  but why be nominal and do the same thing as everyone else!   You are unique that is awesome you don’t need to be normal.   You are so loved,  needed.   Love yourself more than anything!

Looking at the difference people trying to hide when we should able to be who we are.  We are all different which I love!  I don’t care if you have a difference,  if you are in my life it’s ok. Why push people who have a difference away.

This week I am thankful for love!  Not only love I have;  but also I love making others feel important!  It is what keeps me happy, it’s what makes me me.   My daily life I need help with everything physical it’s the best feeling to give to my loved ones;  I might love too much but it is me!  “Real love is opening your heart to the unlovable. Real gratitude is giving thanks when things aren’t perfect. Real generosity is sharing when you have very little. Real courage makes the ‘impossible’ — possible, with real faith.” — Bryant McGill

Life is amazing  as I think about what I’ve decided to do bloging as inspire, support and love others through writing; when the funny thing is I can’t spell that well. But I love writing and doing it my childhood wish is actually coming true!  I love it!   I was in a place,  at the beginning of this year where the bad thoughts was not helping, in to thinking that I couldn’t do this.  But it was not me.  We all going through times where the bad thoughts takes over but at some point you get out of it and start moving forward.  Depression has been a topic I feel like I could support.   I didn’t go to school for it,  but it’s been in my heart to others.   Depression among other disability have always interested me. For depression is something people are afraid of, why.  It’s different disability but it is a disability! I know a disability means you need to help and you can’t help who you are because of that differences you can not help it!  All that to say I want to bring more awareness to all kinds of disabilities!

This weeks gratefulness is to something that to most it must not be something to give thanks for, but for me it is. It pictures and memories that remained with you always! Each day I get excited to look facebook and look at the memories for that day a year ago on a few years back! It’s a great way to remember people who may not talk to as much but the memories helps to know that time will be yours to think back to!

”No one wants to be discriminated against. No matter who you are, you have the same rights to life and equality as everyone else. This is the purpose behind the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. These standards as issued by the Department of Justice and the Department of Transportation ensure that Americans with disabilities have the same rights of access to public buildings as every other citizen of the United States.”(http://accessadvocates.com/why-the-2010-ada-standards-for-accessible-design-mean-equal-rights-for-you.)

Think about this;  as if someone discriminated against when there is nothing wrong with you,  you are able to do everything but someone doesn’t like something about you.   That what someone with a disability feels like what we get discriminated just because we are different.   We are all different the only difference between someone with a special need and the able-bodied is,  year not see their disability.

“Nothing is more important than empathy for another human being’s suffering. Nothing. Not a career, not wealth, not intelligence, certainly not status. We have to feel for one another if we’re going to survive with dignity.”
— Audrey Hepburn

This is so true, I love this.   Sometimes we don’t help people because first we may not know how to help or we feel afraid that they may not understand how much we care! Do it anyway!

This week I’m thankful for the things that made me smile;  like the scenes changing into summer, everything seems new.  The sun shining on everything making things look happy and healthy like life is starting new again,  in a way it is.   I love sitting outside thinking about everything I have.
