If I have the chance to sit outside, I will always take it If someone offers me wine, the answer is always yes I don't eat meat and never want to again Yet I want a cigarette almost everyday of my life I don't smoke Because I choose not to daily I talk a lot I also listen I am a very good listener I miss having people feel like they can confide in me like they did when I was just a therapist People don't like to tell me their problems now Because we all know nothing outweighs ALS People are often scared to ask details about our life with ALS. We don't mind. We like to talk about it We love our lives Genuinely I smudge a lot
If you know what that means then we would probably get along very well I'm open minded I have strong beliefs Yes at the same time I want others to be able to decide for themselves
I don't want someone to tell me what to choose
Ever. I respect others freedom Because I value mine so much Steve & ALS gave me a spine. The things in the past that I used to tolerate doesn't fly with me now I still consider myself a loving nice person I love myself as well as others now And that is why things have changed. I care about what others think
I want people to feel happy around me I want to be positive in their life If someone doesn't like my outfit, tattoos, or hair I don't care I will be offended if you call me ugly But much more so if you call me dumb I had to work hard to learn what I have And never want to stop learning I hope I learn something new everyday of my life Because that's how I grow I am deep I analyze my thoughts and actions every day I journal almost everyday I like writing I have realized I'm actually good at it While I still have a lot of grammar issues to work out Yes I believe I am a good writer while I struggle with grammar I like to learn I keep trying to learn The more I learn the better I become At everything I meditate every day If not I worry and fall apart which I cannot afford to do I also need to keep my feet on the ground Some days life is surreal And some days it gets to me So I mediate Every day Yoga started because I'm vain I want to look the best, feel the best, & be the best I can I call it self care vain Yoga turned into more It is a lifestyle Yoga helped me become the Hope people need me to be
The Hope I want to be. I presently live to make a difference in the world And I hope I always will.
I hope each of you feel this much clarity with who you are currently or one day. I hope that you are patient to understand that you are ever evolving and changing. I hope you learn to know you. Most important I hope you can all learn to love you.
