"There are days when I feel the best of me is ready to begin. Then there are days when I feel I'm letting go and soaring on the wind. But I've learned in laughter or in pain how to survive, I get on my knees...."
These are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs that basically sums up my life on a daily basis living with chronic illness. In the fall of 2012 I started not feeling well. A short-term illness turned into a long time problem.
About two years into my illness I found myself unable to hold down a job, which led me to re-start my journey working from home. Fast forward almost five years. I found a work from home business that is a perfect fit for me. That is KING if you are looking to work from home!
I love the song my the Rory and the late Joey Feek "That's Important To Me". What's important to me is taking care of those I love, being a good mother, being able to take care of my home, going to church, working from home and so many other things. Joey not only had courage, she had wisdom to know the difference and she accepted her challenge that God had given her and fought her battle with cancer with such grace and dignity right up until her last breath, she LIVED.
My hope is to live my life with that kind of faith, that kind of courage, that kind of determination and not let my circumstances define me or confine me. I want to be the vessel that God chosen for me to live this life in and use my story to change the lives of others, to be the light in your darkness and to make a difference. If you are struggling, no matter what your circumstances are, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I am living out my purpose one day at a time and so can you.
