Joy and Pain

Joy and Pain, Like Sunshine and Rain – this song came to mind only because Christina suggested I write about Joys lol…my mind always turns to music, sing it now God’s children.

I was struggling with what I would write about so I asked a few of my friends on Facebook to make suggestions :))

Christina suggested I speak about the joys of being a mother & grandmother and Tony suggested I write about what I envision a healthier version of myself would look like a year from now.

Thank you both for the inspiration to write today :))

It is difficult for me to write about the joys of being a mother and grandmother only because I am joyous every single day.  I cherish my girls more than anything in the world.  They are both my heart & soul combined.

I am currently trying a chiropractic technique called NUCCA – The focus of NUCCA is on a small misalignment of the bone structure that connects the head and neck, a condition called the Atlas Subluxation Complex. This misalignment can block the communication between your brain and body causing pain, stress, tension, and overall physical and emotional dysfunction.

Some of the many symptoms that can be relieved by correction of the Atlas Subluxation Complex include but are not limited to:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic pain or stress
  • Leg and arm numbness
  • Scoliosis
  • TMJ
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sinus and allergy problems
  • Herniated disc
  • Seizures
  • Depression
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Athletic and auto injuries
  • Bed wetting
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Arthritis

I started the treatment this week so it is a bit early to tell you how effective it is but if you suffer from any of the symptoms listed above you might want to research this procedure as I did.

In other news I am two months smoke free and going strong, I’m still a bit blown away (pun intended) by the success I’ve had but I won’t question it.

A year from now I envision to be 10 years younger physically, emotionally and spiritually and to look it as well.

I want to push the boundaries and I don’t accept for a moment that anything including stress and illness can stand in my way.

Weight and strength are where my focus needs to be next, I continue to attend cardio kick boxing and I love it, I think I need to ramp up and officially join a gym.  For some reason I keep fantasizing about doing push ups and pull ups, oh how great that would be.

I still want to start salsa dancing, hoping that I can do that soon :))

As for Love, it’s on the back burner at the moment, my heart is simply not ready to trust.  I don’t know that I will ever feel I can trust someone again but right now I am working on me myself and until I find someone who makes my lips quiver and my foot go up when we kiss :))  I’m happy just having some fun.


I strongly believe this quote from a movie called #dreamsofaninsomniac

“Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them.”

In the meantime I plan to go with the wind and do what feels right in the moment :))

Live, Love & Laugh that is all that matters, everything else is just an illusion.

I’m walking on Sunday for the Kid’s HelpPhone #WalkSoTheyCanTalk.  There is still time to donate so if you are so inclined go here:
