How many times a day,  does someone tell you that they love you?   Do you feel loved?   We don’t think about how much love can make life better, or even just knowing that someone is there for you no matter what time.  We all have hard times,  hurting or feel as if we are alone.  We need to feel loved so much,  I think that is more than ever.  Look around and see how different our lives are now;  love is not at the top as it should be.   If you are depressed or goes through something;  it seems like you get pushed away like no one cares when you should feel loved and that you are cared for.   Its like we are too busy trying to have a good job,  enough money to make us happier,  but somehow the thing which could really make us happy we have forgotten that it is all we need that is love.

To a special friend!

You are so amazing
I know it hard right now but it will get better soon.
You mean so much to me!
I might not be able to be with you but you know whenever you feel lonely I am just a text away.
I just got you back I’m not losing touch again !!
You have me always!!
I so can wait till you can come here!
I love you so much Don’t forget it!

Each day is a gift

Every person who comes into your life is a gift

You meet them for a reason

Hold them close

Let them know how much they mean to you.

Never let go

There are saying and Bible verses that says love is forever; love never gives up.  Lately I’ve been thinking how today we don’t think about love as being never ending.   We get upset by a person and we say anything to not show that they have hurt us;  trying to act as if we are ok like we don’t want them,  but we know we love them its never ends.   But sometimes we don’t think it’s there,  if the other person doesn’t seem to show it.   That they need it most!   Just Love It’s always there!

“You were created to make somebody else’s life better. Somebody needs what you have — your smile, love and encouragement.”

— Joel Osteen
in “Give love and encouragement

I love this quote because I think love is the greatest gift you can give someone!   I know we going through things that we push out love or maybe we don’t even know why we are doing it,  but just giving them love you are helping them in ways you don’t think you are!

when you help others

Today world people don’t see what can come out of supporting someone else who is lonely or going through something that they don’t think they can share with the people around them; maybe they feel that if they don’t talk about it,  it will go away.   But I think if we were meant to be alone we would .  We have family and friends who care about us.   We all going through times in our life that we need have somebody to talk to.   I want to be a support when you feel like you don’t have anyone who understands whatever you are going through.

What truly matters,  what do we need most and instead we think we can be good without it,  like somehow we’re happy on our own.   We can not!  It is important for us to show love even they don’t give it back,  I have been thinking that if I love it should come back to me, but that doesn’t seem to matter as much to me.   I know I have people that love me but I realized that it means more if you always awoke not worrying about what others think.  I am happy and I know that I have something that most people don’t see,  loving yourself first than you will be able to do things for others when they don’t think that you are there for them and that is a gift you can give no one has to know.   Love is the best gift!  It took me a while to understand how something so simple could be what makes me happy;  loving others!

LOVE NEVER ENDS!

Love always it is the light of our lives!
Love can change lifes.
Could be the light that,

helps us when things get to handle.

its the light that we could not live without!

I have not been writing a lot lately;  I’m sorry I have been going through some things, and I haven’t been wanting to write.  But when you are depressed or going through something hard writing it out,  is one thing that can really help.  I don’t have depression that bad to where I need help I just need to write about it in my journal and let time help me to get through it.   I know it is not that easy for some of you,  but maybe it could help you some.

Today life is based on how someone looks not on what they do.   As I have said many times before we all have differences that makes us who we are.   Being in a wheelchair and all the things that make me,  I have a disability one that you can see before me sometimes, but I’m ok if you don’t see me behind my disability because its what makes me.   But there are times when I wish I was more able I wish I could talk and be understood I sometimes wish I could go anywhere without having someone take me;  but most of the time I am happy with who I am.   I know I have stuff to work on,  but I am me, not changing.   And you can’t change because you are the way you are for a reason.

Life takes us on paths which sometimes we are not ready for.   I am in a time where a lot of things are amazing and I am happy that I have so much,  but there are somethings I know I need to work through and it hurts so much knowing that I could have still had something very special.  I am letting go, but I know I will have that memory forever! I have to just got to keep looking at the great things that will come if I let go of that one thing I don’t want to let go of.   Though love will be there!

Life’s Angels

I believe in living Angels,

Because I know a few people who have shown me that they are more than what we see.
ANGELS in the living!

 Do we take them for granted, when they are helping us.

When we are in need?
But they don’t mind,

they are there for you!

Caring about you no matter what.
Daily we don’t see them as

they let you be you.

Angels are real!
We just need to believe.
Angels are Love!

last night I realized something which I already believe but somehow last night it really sank in, I love you all my heart and even if someone is not in my life I am still going to send them love; maybe that’s when it means the most!

Love never gives up !  !  As we start a new year; what is something that we could change within our selfs?  We do something like this every time we begin a new year thinking we will stick to it, but most times we end up giving it up life gets in the way.   Or maybe you don’t think you can do something that would better your life;  you are not good enough but you are!   I know that feeling of giving up;  like there is nothing else you can do.  This next year let’s work on something we all need and maybe you don’t think it would make a difference in life,  but it does.  So one of my goals for the new year is to love without thinking about what I want from the other person.  Maybe there will be more that I want to change in my life but for now that is what is on my heart the most.

Each year there is at least one thing I can ask for as a Christmas gift idea, but this year there is nothing I want nothing you can buy. But here is what I want the one thing I went more than anything.  I want to find a way to let people in my life how much love I feel for each of the special friendships I have had in my word that had made it great just by understanding me.   Especially this year when I have been starting out on my own.   I never thought I could live independently from my mom who has done for me.   Now for the time I am independent and I am so happy that I can live on my own.  I just want to find a way to say I LOVE YOU SO MUCH over and over!  Thanks toall the support though this year.

I have been going through some things that have been helping me to realize that I need change parts of my life,  and at first, I couldn’t think about it being a good change.   Change can be hard for anybody,  and during the holidays which are already kind of hard for me, missing my brothers, my family who are far away I should be used to it.  But I am not!  This season is supposed to be happy for me this year I am not doing that good with it; and I everything else would want but the people I wish I could be with this holiday season.

I am starting to be more independent,  living on my own the best I can,  I have a job and living life as close to normal as I can.   Looking to next year I am going to do work on changing a few things that I do that I don’t like about myself , , I am to work on growing my business and Ms. Wheelchair Colorado.   I want to write more on differences.

​”Be careful not to attach your sense of worth to your performance. When you’re dissatisfied with something you have said or done, talk with Me about it. Ask Me to help you sort out what is truly sinful and what is not. Confess any sins you’re aware of, and receive My forgiveness gratefully. Then live in the freedom of being My beloved believer. Don’t let your mistakes and sins diminish your sense of worth. Remember that you have been declared ‘Not Guilty’ forever! There is no condemnation for those who are in Me—who belong to Me. You are precious to Me, and I take delight in you, so refuse to condemn yourself.” —Jesus Always by Sarah Young

​You are the forward edge of life’s advancement; in this moment in time you are the finest expression of life’s brilliance. All of history has pointed its refining focus to your life this moment. You are the culmination of all that ever was. You are the highest point of the vast pyramid of history and of your own life. Eons of suffering, brutality and struggle have paved the way through the corridors of time to create this moment, where you exist as an exalted expression of life. Life is ever reaching for strength, vitality, survival and the fulfillment of perpetuating its inherent message of continuance. You are that reach! Nature has placed you on the throne of royalty as the heir of all life that preceded you. Did you not inherit the Earth and all of life? You are the grand estate and administrator of — now. Do not squander your endowment. Dare not surrender to weakness you divine creation! Stand-up! You are the apex, the zenith, and the capstone. Your power and brilliance is the most awesome force life could muster. Do not forget or take for granted the splendor of your majesty. Your mind, your motion and your expression is an animation to marvel and to praise. All of life and history is holding you on its shoulders so you can stretch one atom further. Seize this moment and feel the glory of life’s gift coursing in your deepest sinews. Relish in this moment. Be astounded. You are nothing less than a miracle!

Speechless!

In all of my vt  watching,  I am very excited to see ”Speechless” as I ever have been about a tv  show;  not only is it about disabilities,  but it’s about a boy who has cerebral palsy like me. I don’t know why this chose to do a show about cp, but that is what will be airing starting tomorrow night,  I’m so excited about this;  but I have wondered why don’t do it with all different kinds of disabilities and have it be a show that can be to help people get comfortably around people with disabilities.

This year I have realized more about TRUE gifts that you can’t buy;  something that can make life that much better.  Other than your family,  it is knowing that someone thinks about you just as much as you do them.   Its not about anything else but how much they are always there;  just to say, ”I love you”.  Life is busy and through you want to talk to someone everyday its not always easy t let loved ones know what they are loved and special every day.   But it’s so needed!

One of the greatest blessings in life is to find out who your true friends really are. Don’t mourn for those who weren’t there for you in your time of need and don’t fault them. Be grateful that you’ve learned who really cares so that you can free yourself and your life from those who don’t; and fill your life with those who do. -oksana

I think I finally know exactly what I was meant to do ,write/bloging,,getting awareness out, teaching people that being disabled doesn’t mean that we can’t do everything. don’t you know we all have some kind of differences that is what is a disability?”” And I want to be able to have depression and disability be in one blog.

Lately in my life there has been a lot of loss and changes good and bad.  Sometimes when going through a time like this it’s easy to feel like you don’t want to let anyone else in; I have had that thought and feeling that loved ones who I don’t know how I could handle losing them.  But I can’t think like that I can’t not open my heart to someone, that is not who I am. Loss,  change can be hard and sometimes a little overwhelming if you can’t see the end of this season,  or maybe you just want to know if you will be ok at the end of this season in life.  You will if you keep trying and don’t let the sadness get you down so much that you forget what you have.  Some people will change but those who are meant to be in your life will always be there!  What is meant to be,  will always come true!   

Choose to be happy now! Everyday life presents you with a full-service menu from which to choose — peace or anger; sadness or joy; forgiveness or revenge; trust or suspicion; and love versus hate. Your response to the behaviors of other people, as well to life’s challenges, will determine your perception of your own happiness. Remember— when things go wrong, don’t go with them! Happiness is a choice that you make every moment of every day. Hold it in your mind; pursue it with your passion; show it on your face; create it within yourself; and then bring it out for the world to experience in the unique spirit of you! You have something special! You have GREATNESS within you!! — Les Brown

Amy

Life is not measured by how much money you have 

its about how you look at life 

How you can over come the hard times with strength .

You have amazing!
Dancing through life with your confidence nothing stops you!
You are my hero!    

I am thankful that I call you my dear friend.   

I love you Amy!  

Do we realize that everything could charge in a moment?   Do people really know how much they are loved?   I am thinking about these two questions during this time in life .  Trying to be happy because I am healthy and I have great life and I am loved!   But sometimes I don’t always feel happy and right now I am not totally happy,  a friend of mine is very sick I can not even go see her,  there is nothing anyone can do for her.  This time for her family and friends not knowing what will come next it so hard I am praying for her and everybody who loves her.   

My thoughts on the movie ” me before you”.

Me before you is a movie about newly disabled man in England and I have been reading all the disappointed disabled community who think the main idea people are going away with after seeing this movie is that; people who are injured or in a wheelchair will all want to end their lifes.  I don’t agree,  I know each person is different each of us has a different view on life; some of us if ever faced with an injury that can make you depend on other people to get out of bed,  eat and every physical need you once could do without even thinking about it.  But after the injury for some people that independence might be gone;  could you even imagine ?  Even I don’t think I would have a hand time facing a life where the only thing I could move is my head,  and I already need a lot of help. In the book/movie the main guy was a business man and had a great life going for him, then within minutes everything in his life would change.   He went from being independent to always needing care, he became depressed and he could not aspect his life in a wheelchair no-matter how much he had or if he could get all the help in the world,  he would never be happy with his new life, even having a caregiver that was willing to be with him ; he didn’t feel like this was him and he was in so much pain everyday all day,  yes he was happy at the end but it would never be comfortable and he knew he could not better.  He wanted to take his own life and though his family supported him in that.   I could understand why he would want to end his life.  I also understand the disabled community views on this movie, but everybody is different that man wasn’t happy he was depressed and that on it’s own can’t always be helped especially if they have suicidal.    Having depression to the point of wishing your life was over,  is not something to take lightly,  I haven’t had the feeling that life is not wroth living,  but if they have those it’s not always easy to get out of that thought,  he had said that this new life wasn’t him.  Now I am not trying to say what happened in the movie is right but everybody is different and some people have suicidal thoughts so bad enough that it doesn’t matter how much we try we can’t help them if they don’t want to helped.  It something we who   have a great life won’t ever understand what that feeling is like.   So I think the movie/book is a great story about a man who became disabled and he tried to be happy and it just didn’t feel like himself being depend on everyone else to him live.  It is not about the whole disabled community,  it was about his life and he thought about his life in a wheelchair.  

The last thing you want to hear is that someone you love is sick or these is nothing you can do to help!     I know I’ve been there too many times.   How can you be there without overwhelming them?  Its as if you can’t do enough to let them know that you are going to be there with them through their hard journey.  But you can, just by letting them know that you are always there for them, it doesn’t matter how long that they need you.  Even if it’s just a texts each day you know they are going through a hard time.  When you know your loved one has  someone who will be there no matter what, can make all the difference.

Here’s the reason I’m still here: Because at the times of my life, my childhood, my teens, my adulthood, where I’ve wanted to die I’ve had people I knew would be upset I was gone.

I’m doing really well with my mental health over all lately- I have had a few bumpy days here or there, but I’m overall a happy person now. Even when I’m having the bumpy days, I’ve become someone with a happiness underneath inside me to keep me moving and using positive coping strategies. Even on days when I have panic attacks. Even on days where I’m having flashbacks, though it’s buried pretty deeply on those days. Even on days where I feel a general hopeless miasma. It feels surreal, if I’m entirely honest.

It feels…

The smallest things can make a big difference having people who always make time to message you each day just to let you know that you are on their mind.  It does not take very long to send a short message.  You will never know how having someone who is always there can mean to someone who might be going through a hard time.   we all have busy lifes,  but knowing that you have someone who wants to be in your life can mean so much.

Do you always put others first?   Do you ever get that feeling that, if you focus on the needs of others somehow you will get noticed?  Maybe you’re at a place in your life that you think you’ve had your time its time to give back.  Giving to those in need is so amazing,  to me it’s as if I give myself a gift each time I felt like I have helped someone!   But I know that there are people who want to let their needs go in the way of being a light of others as if they are not important.    This post is for YOU!   I think about you knowing that may be you are hurting or you don’t want to worry anyone thinking that you are not important guess what you are wrong!   YOU ARE!  You are loved,  the people who are closet to you will support you,  once you see a important you are!

How would you let someone know that you can see that they are going through darkness? How do you support them without them realizing you see they are hurting?

hi everybody, I just wanted to write this again if you need to talk I’m here; I am still working on, having a coaching program and hopefully one day I will be able to open my own life coaching business/support network to do what I love more than anything is helping others! Please share this group and the page.  Thank you so much for your support. https://www.facebook.com/LiveLifeOfLoveWithInYourself/

How do you show someone how much they they mean to you?   It’s not possible no matter how much you try to;  it never seems to be enough or maybe you are like me.   You don’t know the right words to let someone know how much having them always.  Than you think about it when someone says they love you;  everything else doesn’t seem to matter as much, but still it doesn’t feel enough but it only way to tell them!

Don’t stop trying to get what you want in life ! ‪#‎NationalCererbalPalsyAwarenessDay‬

International Day of Happiness

Today is national happiness day.  Happiness is not having in life but being thankful for the little things;  is not having all the money that you think will give you true happiness.   It is knowing that you have everything you need if you believe that love is the key to truly being happy!  We sometimes don’t realize how much love can do,  think about it, when you are having a hard time when someone tells you that they love you;  what does that do for you ?  Letting someone know how much they mean to you, can be enough to change their day, knowing that you are not alone can help someone so much! 

Smoking

There has been something on my heart for a while now and I think it is a fitting subject to start writing on here;  I have said that I want to help people in all hard times.   But I guess what I am going to write on is not really something thought of as a hard time,  maybe to the person who is a smoker its not a big deal;  but to family and friends who love you.  maybe you smoke,   because it’s a way for you to get through the times when you felt alone or maybe you are around people who smoke.  Yes things can happen in life, we could get sick without smoking, or you have smoked all your life and you are healthy.  I have loved ones who smoke and it doesn’t mean I love them any less, I just because I don’t think smoking is good for you,  I just want my loved ones to be happy and live a healthy life.   

Today and tomorrow just love! Show your loved ones how much you care!

Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.”
— Karl Marx

We all have hard times, the first of this year I was not very happy, sometimes I can get into a place where even though I have so much support and love I still get depressed, in that mind set it’s so easy to think that I am not good enough or I can’t do anything with my life, but really that is not true! I just needed to step out of that way of thinking and I soon saw what I am already doing. I am raining an organization called Ms. Wheelchair Colorado it is such a great organization to be a part of. I also write to support others who are going through a hard time, and I work with special needs high school students.  Everything that I do how could I feel depressed you may ask; having a disability where you always need to have with of your physical needs,can get hard sometimes. When you get to age where you should have a job and be able to take care of yourself, but when it comes down to it for me,  I can’t do it without help. Most of the time I am very happy and I don’t let what I can’t do get to me;  but the last few weeks I have been down and kind of wishing I had a normal job and that I could live without needing help for everything;  but I do.  I know there are so many things I can do.   I need to focus on what I can do,  but when you are depressed it can be hard to see the things you can do.   May be you are like me,  you need someone to be there to talk to when you’re feeling down.   Having a great friendship can just give you what you need to get back to yourself again.  

Happy International Day of Acceptance. we all have differences not if we can see them or not. Accepting everyone is necessary. I love that there is a day of acceptance!

What or who says if you are beautiful or not?   Why do we care if we are different,  don’t people understand that being different is what the world so amazing to live in?   Because we are all different, but yet we have something a like.  I have a disability you can easily see without having to ask,  but there are many disabilities people may have that you can’t see right a way.  Its easy to judge just because sometimes they are acting different from you, but when you get to know them you realize that you are not that different from each other.

Just in case I don’t have time tomorrow to write; I’m going to say happy new years now. I am so excited about partying with friends my age on new years eve I’m so excited! This year was amazing, hard and full of giving/gifts and love! I don’t know how else to sum up this year. I took an amazing class that helped me to realize I can be more than I thought; leading to me wanting to start my own online service. I got to talk to one of my best friends just everyday which is amazing to know that we can do that! <2 I got to see my aunt which was so special! For this coming I’m going to work on becoming more independent and my business may be became a life coach! HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!

My Christmas wish.

Christmas time; we all get asked this question what do you want for Christmas?   Normally I can come up with something I would like to get, but this year I want more than any thing you can buy.  I want to give!   I want to let my family and friends know how much they mean to me,  I want to serve others.   I want to have this blog to become a network for everyone who is depressed or just wants to be loved to read my wraps and know that they are enough!   They are perfect just as they are!  You are you!  I already have what I need LOVE!
