This picture made me tear up and I got this feeling of deep deep sadness in the pit of my stomach. I asked myself WHY? and the answer was instantly at the surface of my emotions. <3 <3

BECAUSE I have been there; I have had that sense of desperation; that sense of hopelessness; that sense of “OMG…I’m way too far gone, what’s the use of trying to lose weight now”, I will stay fat for the rest of my life; then the crying; then the secret you keep inside because of shame; not opening up to anybody; getting in my car to go buy more junk food to comfort myself from what had made me this way to begin with; vicious vicious circle. I’m sure I am not alone. So, Wow!! this picture really resonated with me which gave me a wake up call. Holly, lose what you have to lose NOW before you get back to that desperate sad hopeless place. Never again.

SO WE ALL START SOMEWHERE. Don’t shrink your DREAM, super SIZE your courage. Tough times don’t last but tough people DO! No matter who you are or where you are at, you GOT this! We are turning our struggles into our strengths one day at a time… NEVER give up, and NEVER back down!! <3 xoxo <3

AWE A walk down Memory lane :D

A friend of mine tagged me in this this morning, OHHHH how the memories flood back, this was my twins FIRST birthday 

Image

Little did we know at the time what the road for us was going to be.  Who would have known we would be faced with that diagnoses of AUTISM, who would have known that our 3 child would be diagnosed with disabilities as well. But every challenge we faced it was HIT head on.  I learned early NOT to back down, NOT to let people walk on me, and NOT to give up, I LEARNED I had to FIGHT for these kids, and I have BOY I have.  YES its been trying, BUT I look back and KNOW its all been WORTH IT <3 

I have learned the more you stand up, the better it is, I am not one to sit and not say a word.  My biggest obstacles in life was NOT my kids, it was being HEARD, getting the right help, fighting to get it.  It should not be like this, BUT I have learned it is, and the louder you, the more you DON’T back down it when FINALLY things start to happen.  I guess they get sick of hearing you LOL. I am the type of person, I don’t CARE what title you have behind your name, you are a person JUST like me. YES I have fired Doctors, YES I have told people off, YES even family, funny when I did do that i was accused of being an alcoholic, NOW that one made me laugh, I have NO time for that, just because i was up late at night when I sent that email LOL. And people wonder WHY I don’t go to family functions,  When you KNOW in your heart its NOT right, LISTEN, do what needs to be done, FIGHT FOR IT. This is in all ASPECTS of life, NEVER let someone put you down and make you feel like you have no idea who you are or what you are talking about.  In my situation, dealing with this for now 19 year and a half years, I think I KNOW what I am talking about.  NEVER let anyone underestimate WHO you are.  YES I DON’T go to family functions, if people in my family WON’T take the time to UNDERSTAND, then I have no time for them, I can’t be bothered to go and ENJOY myself when I get those looks, YEP you may know what I mean by that.  I did it to PROTECT my children, why should they have to go and get treated like crap because of lack of understanding? NOPE I WON’T put them threw that, I learn that one LONG ago.  My Mom was AWESOME, she understood, SHE understood my why’s and my feelings and she always said I don’t blame you . Life is TO SHORT to be around people like that, I have enough on my plate so I pick my battles, and thats ONE I picked.  I don’t think people understand how words, gestures, facial expressions can hurt, and YES I have seen them all, and when its from FAMILY, well that HURTS even more. At that time in my life I was learning and was not doing the STAND up for them in the way I do now, if I was the person I was now back then, WELL I would have confronted it HEAD on, hindsight site is great isn’t it ? LOL . But when I did confront it threw an email, I was accused of being an alcoholic so would it HAVE changed a thing?? Probably NOT.  And I have come to realize that this person has NO idea WHO I AM,.  I have learned that, I KNOW who I am, I KNOW who is there for me, I KNOW WHO matters and WHO does not.  I also KNOW this fight is NOT over, I will be FIGHTING for my kids till the day I die or can no longer do so.  I am only 40 and I SWEAR I have been threw enough to have lasted 10 people a life time.. But looking back, I have learned A LOT, and I take all that knowledge i have learned and I apply it to EVERYDAY life.  I am not scared to stand up for WHAT is right and I WILL NOT back down <3 And you should NEVER either <3
