It was a joy meeting Kate this weekend! After joining my life coaching program this year, she successfully graduated a month ago and we knew we needed to celebrate in person. My favorite part of my job is meeting wonderful high vibe souls!! We outdid ourselves with French cuisine, spent over five hours in a witchy shop browsing for books, jewelry, and crystals๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ“ฟ I want to have this experience with all my clients!! After all of that fun we headed back to the house and spent hours vibin until midnight when she surprised ME with a beautiful desert rose gypsum cluster๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•.
.
It couldn't be a better stone for me too, helping clear stagnate energy, addictive schemas, travel sickness, commitment to projects, deepen friendships, and even help regain composure after difficult struggles. The large clusters are said to hold a spirit guardian, and will help communicate to personal guardians/angels since they're grown from within Mother Earth and formed from Father Sky. Everything about this trip marked growth for me, even the bad moments. I'm excited to take this new energy into my coaching business, writing my books, and my relationships!! Happy Graduation indeed, here's to clients turned into wonderful friends๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿฅ‚โ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒโ–ƒ

Shed your cocoon baby, dry your wings and let's fly๐Ÿฆ‹

@artofguerra took me to the Butterfly center in Houston yesterday. We walked into the nursery when a handful of beauties felt it was time to come out๐Ÿ˜ I couldn't be more delighted, yesterday felt like my own hatching of sorts. Traveling here was triggering, motion sickness had me full of regrets earlier this week. It's been two years since I've felt this bad but we handled it; success is not measured by calm seas but rather the riding of turbulent waves. Finally felt up for adventures yesterday and so were the butterflies๐Ÿ’•

My body is screaming an adamant NO!! about another 5 hour car trip, but, we are learning to adapt and try new things as FIL has surgery in the early morning. We decided it would be easier on my body to travel up the night before and get a hotel room close to the hospital. I have a queen size comforter folded in half over my seat to help absorb some of the bumps from the road (funny how I never noticed those before, but, damn if I donโ€™t feel ALL of them now). In my pajamas, no makeup, seat stretched out and Wisconsin bound! โ€ข

Made it halfway through our road trip. So far not "too" bad. ( we've had worse) We have gripes of aches and pains, nothing my medication bag can't take care of. Also has anyone ever brought an electric heating pad and plugged it up to the car adapter? My hubby suggested that and I was like duh? Next stop Wal-Mart? I swear we already stopped at 2 Wal-Mart's on this trip, Lol. You would think we have never traveled before. We are actually seasoned travelers who took time off from road trips since everyone became sick.This is the first time we have traveled with all 3 of us ( my daughters and I) being chronically ill and since Hailey's diagnosis. The dynamic is a bit different. It definitely takes more patience and planning, but it is possible. ๐Ÿ’œ

Back home and exhausted. I guess the salty ocean air was good for my lungs. Because now I'm back home and I'm struggling. It doesn't help my dad wanted to make the house smell good when I came home and used a spray I react to. But I know he meant well. So I can't be too mad. My shirt says "Let's get nauti." Nauti=Naughty. It's a play on the word nautical which refers to the ocean or sea. I bought it at a restaurant called Joe's Crab shack. It perfectly matches my mask which I didn't plan. Lol. I'm probably going to be in a coma for a few months after this trip. But the beach was nice therapy to soothe my mind. #spoonieroadtrip #letsgetnauti #undiagnosed #breathingissues #vogmask #chronicallyill #iamnotmyillness

What I wanted to pack for this weekend, vs what I actually had to pack thanks to food allergies and fibromyalgia. Sigh. #roadtrip #fibro #spoonie #spoonieroadtrip #packinglight #weekend #tombihn #sibo #cfs #chronicillness #invisibleillness

Bundled up and heading to Grafton to visits dad at the VA cemetery. Got some hopefully stomach pacifying rice Chex and tea โ˜•๏ธ

Total hours driven today and total milage over the last 11 days. It's been an epic draining and wonderful time. Now if only I could sleep for a week and not have to prepare for open studios.

Family trip to the Mayo Clinic. #spoonieroadtrip

Saturday's Child Works Hard To Live With Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - Castle Hill was our last stop before we took the car back. I walked around the peak barefoot and savoured the feel of the earth beneath my feet. Savoured the kisses, the smell, the effect it had on me because I knew what was coming next. I knew the payback would be unbearable, and it is. I'm fighting multiple infections, I can barely move. Everything hurts more than I can talk about, and this will last longer than the week that caused it. It was completely worth it. I could never regret this magical week and I will always have so much gratitude for the people who helped make it happen. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’Ÿ
