Marriage & Chronic Illnesses

Standard

I get a lot of questions about marriage & chronic illnesses. I also get A LOT of, “Your husband is such an amazing guy for sticking it out with you,” which bugs the JUNK out of me! It bugs the junk out of him too. Yes…he is amazing & so am I, because when we exchanged our marriage vows, we meant them-they aren’t just words! “IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH.” Anytime he has been sick or needed to be rushed to the ER, I’ve stepped up to the plate & hit a home run just like he has.

We’ve also made the best of everything. Attitude is 100% key to success in anything you strive for in life-that includes love & marriage. Everything we’ve been through has made us stronger because we chose to NOT let it tear us down. When situations present themselves, you MUST grow. I think alot of the time people forget that not only do you have to grow individually, but YOU HAVE TO GROW TOGETHER!

Marriage doesn’t have to be crazy complicated & super hard. Even when you’re faced with trials & tribulations, you can always make it out on the brightside. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Transformation Tuesday

Standard

I know, I know…I’m a smidgen late, but here it is!

#TransformationTuesday

The “Then” photos are from when I was #Working full time with #Chronic #Illness on top of chronic illness. I did everything I could for my employer & yet, I was fired for being #Sick .

.

My #Depression was at new level of horrible & I hated everything about #Life at the #Time . Depression mixed with chronic illnesses is an equation for disaster.

.

The “Now” #Photos are of me since then. I actually have even more #Health #Problems #Now than I did before, but even so, the level of #My #Happiness has #Changed DRASTICALLY.

.

I no longer work for people who don’t truly care about me. #My #Boss is me. I work on taking care of myself. My #Anxiety & level of #Stress are much different now. I’m able to #Focus on taking care of myself & being as healthy as I can be.

.

Not to mention, hubs is much happier knowing I’m at #Home . He seems to worry a little less about me.

.

So, thank you to the horrible people I used to slave for without appreciation, for making things harder on me, for firing me & for all around BETTERING my life! It has been HUGE #Blessings in disguise.

Love in Puzzle Pieces

Repost-Original post date: 11/22/2015

Something told me to revisit this post. A lot of my #Creative juices flowing today, I think, are #Because I’ve been thinking a lot about people in my life who I love(d) today. I’m not sure why. I’m not sure what the reasoning behind it all is. I’m not sure what #God is trying to tell me. I pray that nothing bad happens to a #Piece of my #Puzzle I gave away. Am I suppose to be giving another piece away now? Is someone going to give me a piece of theirs? Lord, please help me…guide me. Use me as You need me.

Love In Puzzle Pieces πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’œ

I think #Love is a like big puzzle & when we’re born, we have the entire puzzle with us & it’s exquisite! It’s a puzzle of love-true & #Beautiful love. As we go through life, parts of our puzzle are either given away or taken away, because we choose to love or we fall in love. Either way, pieces are removed for one reason or another. When the pieces go, were not suppose to expect them back.

For example, your first love. If things don’t work out & you’re no longer together, you spend so much time & energy trying to “pick up the pieces” & make everything okay again, but you’ll never fully recover (aka forget) because that puzzle piece is being held by that person & again, we don’t get them back. So you’ll never be exactly the same as you were before that person.

Say a loved one passes away. They have a piece of your puzzle & take it with them. You’ll never be the same.

However, just because our puzzle is forever changed & missing crucial pieces, doesn’t mean that we a broken or forever damaged. It means we have to adjust. The puzzle is still magnificent…it’s just different. To view the puzzle as a whole again, we have to remember those we love/loved.

When it’s my time to leave this physical earth, I hope my entire puzzle is gone & no remaining pieces linger. I hope I come across a world full of #Amazing love & my pieces are happily held by others. That would be perfect.
