    Happy New Year From Our Family To Yours

    Good evening all. I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season so far. Mine has been wonderful. Full of family and love. What could possibly be better? I just wanted to take the time to wish all of you a Happy New Year. Whether 2018 was an amazing year or left you with a bad taste in your mouth, may 2019 be the most inspired year of your life thus far. I hope you chase your dreams, and catch them. I wish each and every one of you peace, love, happiness, and most of all inspiration. No matter the battles you are facing, I wish you the strength to overcome them and want you to know that someone out there cares. I don’t care who you are or where you are from, you matter just for who you are. Though the road may be rocky, I wish you to always have a hand to steady you on your way. Believe in yourself as I believe in you.

    Have a wonderful evening and a magnificent 2019.

    The Hidden Truth

    Good afternoon. Today I have decided to talk about another topic that is personal and dear to my heart. Hidden illnesses. Those that we all suffer, but only a few truly know we suffer. Mine is bi-polar. I was diagnosed about 10 years ago, however, have suffered the effects of this illness for far longer. For those who do not know, this illness causes a chemical imbalance in my brain. Basically, I feel like I am on a roller coaster with changing emotions from day to day or even hour to hour. To look at me no one would know that inside my head, I struggle daily. I have very good days, and then very bad ones. Certain things trigger my changes, and I am beginning to understand these triggers. Kind of. Anyone who has read my writing will see a difference. Some days are dark and sad, others are happy and inspiring. The face I show the world though, is normally inspirational and positive. I do not want my illness to affect the lives of those around me. I do not want my loved ones to suffer the unknown I live inside my head. While this is a lonely world that leaves me feeling like I am alone in a room full of people, I have my writing. This is my comfort zone. My safe haven so to speak. When I write, I can just be me. Whatever I am feeling, I can write, without being judged.

    So, my hope is that while we are all celebrating this holiday season, we will keep in mind those who are secretly suffering. The ones you know about and the ones who may have it hidden so well, they are not even aware yet. Many suffer in silence, like I do, because they do not want others to feel sorry for them or be adversely affected. Just be kind to everyone you meet. You do not know what that person sitting next to you on the subway or standing behind you in line may be suffering.

    Have a wonderful holiday season. And remember to inspire others so you too may be inspired.
