Hey everyone:

I have been taking a much-needed break from blogging and other things. When I tell you that I feel so refreshed and renewed. I have had a lot going on in the past that I needed to take time out for. I needed to do some healing and I needed to get my life in order. There were so many things that I said I was going to do but never did. I have been taking time out for myself and creating my own space and peace. I have canceled out the noise of others and listened to myself. I have a job that I love and the environment is so peaceful. I have given so much of my peace and attention to others when I should have been giving myself those things as well. I have taken the time to work on self-care myself, to have time for myself, and to create healthy boundaries in my life. I could not continue to do things as usual and thought that I’m going to get different results. I was tired and I needed so much peace in my life. I have that now. I’m not done taking time out for myself and working on myself. I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing well and I’m on a healthier path in life. Dealing with the death of my uncle, not being employed, and always helping others was truly wearing me down. But when you get sick and tired of being sick and tired you do something about it. And I’m doing just that. I will be back to blogging more regularly but not right now. I hope everyone understands.

Well, a lot has happened since the last time that I blogged. I celebrated my 12th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it has been 12 years already. I went back home last week to attend my uncle’s funeral. It seems so surreal to me that he is gone. I walked into his house and was expecting to see him and call me by my nickname. I got to see family that I haven’t seen in years. It was a good but sad time. My daughter was sick and needed to have a procedure done during the trip. I got to see my two grandbabies. I’m tired, to say the least. I have so many mixed emotions right now. I have thought a lot about life and what I need to do. I appreciate more than ever my family and those who have always had my back. Death and life teach you may lessons. I hope everyone has a great week.

Thank you/Update:

I would like to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. It truly made my day. So update on my shoulder. I got my last two injections yesterday. And if this doesn’t work then I only have two options. First option is to do nothing and see if it will heal on its on. Second option is surgery. Im more than likely going to wait it out and see how it goes. So today I had my yearly physical and let’s just say that I got more bad news. I don’t necessarily know if it’s bad but it doesn’t sound good. My doctor found a lump on the left side of my thyroid. When it rains it pours. So how is your day going?

Update:

So I went to my orthopedic doctor yesterday and I got a diagnosis. I have calcific tendonitis. My doctor said that this is very rare, but very painful. I got two injections shots yesterday and 3 prescription. It’s likely to go away on it’s but but it can take 12 to 18 weeks 😭😭😭. If I don’t get better it is possible that I might have to have surgery. But I’m thinking positive about my situation. I have so much inflammation that he is concerned. If anyone has ever had this I would like to ask you a few questions.

Book update:

Well here is an update on my book. I’m doing good I think so far. So far I have written four chapters and now I’m working on chapter 5. I guess the question for me would be how many chapters does your book need to have? And also is there a good editing program, software, or service that is credible out here? I’m learning to take one day at a time and one step at a time. I feel more confident and excited about writing again.
