The sun gives me freckles and I love freckles!! It’s been a busy week, rehearsal everyday this week! Hitting the stage at Carifest this Saturday and BMO theatre next Saturday.

“Just to be safe” they marked the side for surgery this morning... #yay #surgeryday #finallywholeagain #tbisurvivor

Pain, sweat, hard work all taste sweet and rewarding... but often mask internal struggle... work through it...be present...breathe #bodymindsoul #tbisurvivor #marines #soulsnatcher #army #navy #airforce

Ranger learned how to blow kisses. So now his favorite thing to do is call "Duuuuu" and blow him a kiss😭❤️

Some days it feels like #smiling is asking a lot. When you have been through #trauma of any kind your body needs time to heal.
Our bodies are complex and made to withstand a lot! Having been almost 7 years since my #caraccident I never thought it would still be such a #dailystruggle.

Since I know that I am lucky, having health care and living in this amazing country, I feel like I need to #lookahead instead of staying in the past. So, I will continue to #fight and #staystrong, never forgetting to #smile, knowing that this is the recipe for #perseverance
Be Well My Friends!

When I was 18 years old I use to work at a group home for autistic children. There was one girl who taught me the most valuable lesson I have ever learned.
I would take her for hikes in the Wasatch mountains, every time she saw a flower, tree or butterfly she would cry. Tears of joy and appreciation and taught me the gift of appreciating the small things.
I am so blessed with the people that I have met with my passion of helping others.
May you appreciate the small things, know you are loved, valuable and nature celebrates your simply beauty that makes you, well you!

This rings true for me.. Most people don't understand why I am the way I am.. It's combat PTSD and constant pain symptoms that keep me from leading a relatively good life.. I mean I'm 32 and retired not by choice.. My injuries are not debilitating yet. But I can't do the things I love to do anymore.. When a life well lived lays just outside of my grasp.. It's difficult to be positive but I try. So I medicate and take the pills the doctors say I need.. Shit.. I mean I should be counting my blessings.. I still have all my limbs and extremities but it's a life full of pain management and excuses. #ptsdsurvivor #ptsdrecovery #tbisurvivor #tbi #trauma #combattrauma #survivorsremorse #survivorsguilt #usarmyveteran #11b #infantryman

'To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders'
Lao Tzu

They say what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. Well, this time last year, my AVM which caused my brain to bleed literally almost killed me...but God 🙌🏽. I woke up this morning with tears rolling down my eyes. I didn’t know how hard today would be. My emotions are everywhere. Gratefulness is flowing from my heart today. THANK YOU to all my family and true friends who have rocked with me over this past year. I wouldn’t have made it without you. This experience has forever changed my life. I’m a better, more confident, more self assured and self aware person. I’m striving to live in my truth, and my best life every day. I don’t sweat the small stuff anymore. I live by, “if it comes let it, if it goes, let it.” I’ve had things and people come and go over the past 365. I believe God knows exactly who should be in my life and what things I should have so I’m at peace with that. I’m living, I’m loving, I’m leveling up, and I’m striving to live life authentically. Check out my podcast recapping the last 365 days from almost dying to surviving!!! 🙌🏽 Happy Survivor Day to me!!!! Link in bio!

Good Morning 👋🏻 My name is Jenn and here I am on the start of my journey (this time around) on 8/21/18.

A little info about myself and why I’m starting this page... I joined @weightwatchers about 10 years ago and lost a significant amount of weight...even made Lifetime!! I was doing “okay” on Maintenance, but then life happened and I stopped going, stopped tracking and before I knew it the weight crept back on. And then some 🤦🏻‍♀️ Today I stand here at my highest weight I’ve ever been!! I’ve recently been diagnosed with #fibromyalgia, I’m a #tbisurvivor and sometimes get “Hypervigilance Attacks” because of PTSD (I was hit head on by a drunk driver and ejected through my windshield a few years ago). Over the past few years, I “lost” myself under the weight and pain. The smile on my face is not the confident person I once was. I used to like going on road trips and taking tons of pictures with my amazing husband ~ now you only find me BEHIND the camera. That’s if we even go anywhere at all (the weight prevents me from walking too far without getting out of breath).

I want my page and my journey to INSPIRE people!! To KNOW that you CAN do this and NOT be “perfect”. I like chocolate more than veggies, I drink an obscene amount of coffee and I’m not a big gym person.
Life is about balance ~ health, wellness, weight loss, inner peace...it’s ALL within your reach when you balance it all out. One Day At A Time!! This is my REAL LIFE journey...I strive for Progress, not Perfection. Let’s do this together!! *

since I've moved to Bowling Green, KY in 2015...I get very sad saying goodbye to the flowers in the garden...I love the growing season here...and as we were walking this morning...I found the a wild Morning Glory vine growing in the large meadow...the color was amidst the rustic tones as Autumn nears...I always look for a glimmer of hope...I'm an realistic optimist... It rained last night and the sky is still very cloudy...so this a "glimmer of hope/Universal Hug" for today...thank you Mother Nature...morning therapy in the Meadowz... #thetalesofindigowillowz #grateful #mothernature #thankyoumothernature🌺🍃 #indigowillowzbrand #indiezworld #universalhug #morningglories #August #latesummer #glimmerofhope #whisperingwildflowermeadowz #realisticoptimist #strokesurvivor #tbisurvivor #survivor #disabilitymentor #morningtherapywalk #goodmorning #morningglory #wildmorningglory #kentuckyproud #inspire #inspirational #liferehab alllivesmatter #disabilitylife
