I miss not seeing her everyday and shopping is not the same...I love you @aniyawilliams_ to the moon and beyond can’t wait to hug 🤗 you again 🎂HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎂😘😘 Dr. Williams

Para sempre. Ele morreu e acordou em seu próprio inferno pessoal."
🎈
Morto. Seth está morto. Quer dizer, ele tem a mais absoluta certeza de que morreu. Ainda lembra a sensação da água fria invadindo seus pulmões e o jogando contra a pedra que tirou sua vida. Mas... ele acordou. Tirando o fato de estar pelado, com sede e cheio de bandages coladas pelo corpo, ele se sente bem.
Explorando a residência em que acordou, Seth percebe que está na sua casa de infância. Além de encontrar tudo empoeirado, nada parece muito fora do comum, tirando o fato de ter um caixão metálico no seu quarto. Ele está sozinho também. Completamente sozinho. Não há nenhum sinal de vida na cidade inteira. Então, isso seria uma espécie de pós morte? Ou o inferno? O mundo parece diferente do que ele costumava lembrar. Coberto de poeira, em silêncio.
E, para piorar as coisas, toda vez que Seth dorme, ele sonha com lembranças que já havia esquecido, de antes da sua suposta morte. Tanto lembranças boas, quanto as ruins. Enquanto se esforça para compreender o que está acontecendo, Seth não ousa perder a esperança. Seria isto o fim? Poderia haver mais desta vida, ou quem sabe, da outra vida?
-
Isso que eu escrevi acontece nas primeiras páginas, sério, o livro é muito mais louco e complexo do que isso. As partes das lembranças do Seth ajudam muito com as teorias (provavelmente erradas) que começamos a ter. Eu queria dizer mais sobre a história, mas acredite em mim, quanto menos souber, melhor.
A narrativa em momentos tensos (como a morte do Seth) é muito crua e angustiante, e eu amei. Achei que a explicação para o que estava acontecendo foi muito boa e inteligente. Eu só não dei nota máxima por conta do final aberto (eu gosto de ter respostas para tudo!!!), mas foi uma leitura muito boa no geral.
O livro é da Jess do @saymybook (estamos fazendo #LivroViajante), e eu amei a experiência de criar teorias dentro do livro, ler as anotações dela e comentá-las! 😹
@larisreads tu é a próxima. Boa sorte com minhas teorias loucas 👀💖
Nota: 4/5 ❤

I have a story for you all that happened today and is making my cry happy tears right now. This is @tazohasoneear's hamster Ginny.

Today @tazohasoneear contacted us asking if we knew a way to stop a hamster from chewing stitches because Ginny had just had surgery and the vet had called to let her know that Ginny was pulling off her bandages. They were very afraid Ginny would pull out her stitches possibly causing serious injury and even death. Luckily, I actually did have the answer to this one and explained how to wrap a hamster so that they can't reach stitches to chew and described what she would need to do that. I also offered my phone number and my vet's phone number, but found out that @tazohasoneear lives in Chile so they wouldn't be able to call.

She jumped into action, got vet wrap and tape, and rushed to the vet's office to explain how yo wrap up a hamster to prevent chewing on stitches. Together, she and the vet got Ginny wrapped up safely. The vet had never heard of wrapping a hamster like this and was very happy to have learned. She took a bunch of pictures of Ginny all wrapped up and let @tazohasoneear know that she would be using this technique on other rodents to keep their stitches safe!

That gave me lots of warm fuzzy feelings because that means that today's little bit of advice will help Chilean hamsters receive even better veterinary care for years to come. How cool is that? That's what I call a win.

Now, everyone think good thoughts for Ginny because she has a lot of healing to do! #hamster #love #goodthoughts #chile

"Time"

Well the smart money's on Harlow
And the moon is in the street
The shadow boys are breaking all the laws
And you're east of East St. Louis
And the wind is making speeches
And the rain sounds like a round of applause
Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon
His invisible fiance is in the mirror
The band is going home
It's raining hammers, it's raining nails
Yes, it's true, there's nothin' left for him down here

And it's #Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
That you love
And it's Time Time Time

And they all pretend they're Orphans
And their memory's like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can't remember
Tell the things you can't forget that
History puts a saint in every dream

Well she said she'd stick around
Until the bandages came off
But these mamas boys just don't know when to quit
And Matilda asks the sailors are those dreams
Or are those prayers?'
So just close your eyes, son
And this won't hurt a bit

And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
That you love
And it's Time Time Time

Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars
And splash into the street
And when she's on a roll she pulls a razor
From her boot and a thousand
Pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window
And a kiss upon his lips
Till the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And pay the fiddler off till I come back again

Oh, it's time, time, time
And it's time, time, time

And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
And it's Time Time Time
That you love
And it's Time Time Time

Your boyfriend Theo James just left and you miss him already, even though he lives just half an hour away driving. You watch a weird show that is on the tv when suddenly your phone on the coffee table starts buzzing. The number says "Babee💘" you smile because Theo is calling you and you answer with a cheery hello.
Unknown voice: "hello ms, I'm officer Bennett. Are you Theos girlfriend?"
You:"yes..I am Theos girlfriend. Where is he..."
Officer Bennett:"I'm sorry to tell you this but Theo has been in a terrible car accident, he was hit by a drunk driver that was in the wrong lane"
You scream and start crying
You:"no no no no"
Officer Bennett:"I'm very sorry"
You:"is he going to be okay?" Officer Bennett:"that we don't know yet, he has just been rushed to the hospital"
You grab your car keys and your coat and race out the door. You practically speed your way to the hospital, not caring about that fact that you are still in your pajamas. When you get there you run to the desk and ask for Theo James.
Service desk woman: *types his name into computer* "Theo James is currently undergoing surgery, feel free to take a seat while until he is available" she says beckoning towards the wAiting Area. You trudge over and sit in a hard chair and hope that Theo is gonna be ok. You wait for about an hour and a half. An hour and a half full of nail biting and crying. then the woman calls you over.
Service desk woman:"Theo is currently in room 2107.
You:"ok thank you so much" you say rushing to an elevator. When you get off on the second floor you run his room and knock.
Theo:"hello.." The voice says groggily.
You:"hey babe, it's me (y/n) may I come in?"
Theo:"of course" he says sounding happy to see you.
You slowly walk in and see Theo in the hospital bed, he is a mess but
Still manages to look handsome. He has bandages wrapped around his waist and chest. He also has a cast on his right arm and leg. His face has a bunch of bumps and cuts and bruises. You walk over to the bed and place your hand lightly on his chest and slowly move your hand down. He looks up and looks you in the eyes.
You:"I was worried

Never forget 9/11❤️ Today I try the job as a Medjack. I've spent a lot of time with Clint and Jeff the other Medjacks, so I get along with them well. No one in Glade gets hurt often, it's a pretty easy job I guess. I organized the bandages and tape on the shelf. I cleaned the needles and syringes, then stacked a bunch of cups.
Ugh I missed Newt so much. Lunch was in 5 minutes I decided to end work early and snatch some lunch for Newt and I. I sit at our table and wait for Newt. Then I decided to hide behind the tree and scare him when he comes. Foot steps crunch the dry ground right in front of the tree. The steps aren't even and it sounds odd. I jump out from behind the tree, and Newt falls to the ground. He's face is priceless. Newt shuffles to his feet shocked about what just happened. Then he runs after me. I turn and sprint in the opposite direction, laughing hard. I slow down as I get to the forest and I let him catch me. He picks me up and carries me like a bride.
"Hey put me down." I laugh and slap him playfully on the chest. "Never!" He carries me back to the table and puts me down. I jump on my tiptoes and kiss him on the cheek. I walk around the table and sit. Newt does the same.
Thomas, Teresa, Brittany and Minho are already sitting at the table by the time we get back.
"Minho why don't you do that to me?" Brittany asks. "You want me to chase you?" "Yeah!" Newt and Thomas smirk at him and Minho smirks back.
"Ok." Brittany gets up from the table and runs toward the maze. Minho follows her. Then Teresa gets up from the table and Thomas runs after her. Newt looks at me funny. "Want to go again?" He asks with a twinkle in his eye.
I never answer and just leave the table running. This time I run into the forest and don't stop. I hide behind a tree and wait for Newt to come.

Sweet Felicity

The bandages on my bleeding hands are delicately set
By you sweet Felicity, you phantom
I know not where you come from
Only that you came to me in a dream
To patch me up
And how were these wounds inflicted
Perhaps I fell from a tree we climbed together in our youth
Or was I banging them against something in fury
Raging to escape this locked chest I find myself trapped in
What kind of penitence caused this
I do not know
I only know the gentleness of your hands on mine
As you bandage my bloody contusions
And a song of a story I hear faintly
That fades when I awake
Only the chorus remains,
And it goes:
'Everybody's gettin my time
Oh, everybody's gettin my time,
When winter comes
I'll be alright.' D.S.C

I surprised my dad with a couple canvases because I wanted to watch him paint in person. He’s an amaaaaazing artist that even with being paralyzed has painted large scale murals, won numerous art contests, and has a stack of creations I’m eyeing to steal 🙈 I’m also a painter though it’s been a good 8 years since I last did anything. So I got myself a canvas to paint something for him. Yesterday we shared and shared and shared. We talked about the most uncomfortable things between us and (no surprise) cried and hugged it out. What’s crazy in all of this release, later in the day I had some emotions come up that (wasn’t his fault) that I knew I needed to work through. He has friends come over daily to redress his bandages from a deep wound he hasn’t. I moved my canvas into the other room and as I sat there painting memories and feelings of being set to the side arose. It was so intense I felt like I needed to pack my things and go see my mom and my family in Kansas. I told myself this is the opportunity for growth... sit with it... feel it... feel it hard... feel it harder (something I’ve been learning from @jennifer_partridge ) I can’t say that the feeling fully escaped me then and there but it subsided a little. Next thing I knew my dad asked if wanted to go riding wheel chairs with him (he had been charging his other chairs battery all day) I said yes and before I knew it we covered (what seemed like) every corner of Mansfield. So my lesson yesterday was, if you think of stopping because it’s uncomfortable or risky on your heart... don’t... keep going. It’s all strengthening your outer and your inner. .

And you can tell
From the state of my room
That they let me out too soon
And the pills that I ate
Came a couple years too late
And I've got some issues to work through
There I go again
Pretending to be you
Make believing
That I have a soul beneath the surface
Trying to convince you
It was accidentally on purpose
I am not so serious
This passion is a plagiarism
I might join your century
But only on a rare occasion
I was taken out
Before the labor pains set in and now
Behold the world's worst accident
I am the girl anachronism
And you can tell
By the red in my eyes
And the bruises on my thighs
And the knots in my hair
And the bathtub full of flies
That I'm not right now at all
There I go again
Pretending that I'll fall
Don't call the doctors
'Cause they've seen it all before
They'll say just
Let her crash
And burn
She'll learn
The attention just encourages her
And you can tell
From the full-body cast
That you're sorry that you asked
Though you did everything you could
Like any decent person would
But I might be catching so don't touch
You'll start believing
You're immune to gravity and stuff
Don't get me wet
Because the bandages will all come off
And you can tell
From the smoke at the stake
That the current state is critical
Well it is the little things, for instance
In the time it takes to break it
She can make up ten excuses
Please excuse her for the day
It's just the way the medication makes her
I don't necessarily believe there is a cure for this
So I might join your century but only as a doubtful guest
I was too precarious removed as a caesarian
Behold the worlds worst accident
I am the girl anachronism
I am the girl anachronism
I am the girl anachronism
I am the girl anachronism
I am the girl
I am the girl
I am the girl
I am the girl anachronism

The drugs they gave me make me drowsy for a while but then there’s a window where I’m alert and optimistic. I intend not to not rely on them so much in the coming weeks, at least beyond what my doctors have recommended. I have long incision scars on my left forearm and left calf and of course the “zipper” down the chest. They used this weird crazy glue for skin to put me back together, which means no bandages or irritating sutures to deal with. My tattoo work is out of alignment even though there were attempts to match it up but I’m not vain enough to care about it. I’m happy to be alive and yet cranky this has happened. Maybe it’s because being home is it’s own new challenge. I will get better every day and will try not to lose this perspective. There’s an update for you. I haven’t tried out my abilities just yet but if I’m able to just move a computer mouse around a little, I might be getting some new prints together. It’s less effort than you think (though tiring) but I’ll be damned if all I do is sit in a chair all day for 6 to 8 weeks. I’ve heard from so many of you both here and personally and it’s been really really good to know who my friends are out there. Even if we’ve not yet met. I’ll keep everyone abreast (pun intended) on what’s to come, this autumn has a lot of awesome stuff going on and I’ll have much to do with it. I’m ready for the second half of my life to begin.

Tony Stark's condition is more heartbreaking than we thought and he is headed to surgery after his exam today and asks your support via his @FundRazr at https://fundrazr.com/91M2g0?ref=ab_616GO0 or via Goodworld by commenting #donate + dollar amount below <3
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and more on Tony Stark's condition below... Just when we thought Stark's condition couldn't get any more heartbreaking after seeing his shelter pics, the fact that he had been surrendered that way and the news last night that he had rifle pellets in him...but as always, there was more to come.

Three specialists at Leader Animal Specialty Hospital, Dr. Unis, Dr Peress, and Dr. Rosainz removed the bandages that Tony Stark had come with from the shelter. The condition of the skin that they found underneath in no way tied to the story that Stark had been hit by a car early yesterday morning, but based on his experience and the condition of the wound Dr, Unis felt that Stark had been in this condition for around a WEEK.

How he did not die of sepsis or infection is beyond explanation, but after heavily sedating him and examining the wound on his back, Stark's Veterinary Dream Team felt that debriding was not enough and Tony Stark and Dr. Unis are headed to surgery to further clean the wound, and suture the flap back together.

We have no words and can't imagine what this innocent boy has been through. We ask your continued support to ensue that we can be there for him and give him the life and love that he so deserves <3 Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has donated, shared, left messages of love and support for Tony Stark so far....YOU are the fuel that makes 2nd chances possible and we can't thank you enough <3 #dachshund #rescue #urgentrescue #doxie

This is a story that follows best friends Liv and Morgan, who are dating two brothers named Clay and Nathan. On a hot summer night, their joyride ends in sudden impact, a screech of brakes, and shattering glass. On that lonely country road, their lives are changed forever.

Liv wakes in the hospital, confused when they call her Morgan. She assumes it’s a case of mistaken identity, yet when the bandages come off, it’s not her face in the mirror anymore. It’s her best friend Morgan’s.

Morgan always seemed to have the perfect life, yet Liv must navigate endlessly disturbing secrets of the criminal and murderous variety—and a romance that feels like a betrayal. Torn between the boy she loved as Liv and the boy she’s grown to love as Morgan, Liv still has to survive Morgan’s last request.

Pssst, hi! 👋 Remember me?
.
Thing is, I tend to do this -- kinda go MIA when things in our lives get extra cray! 🙈 It's definitely not my favorite trait, but as I always say I'm a constant work in progress!
.
What's going on? Well, after a few months of endless doctors' appointments, increased and decreased medication doses, and a string of days/weeks of not feeling myself, I made a big decision and decided to have my thyroid removed. This whole autoimmune/thyroid disease issue has basically been a rollercoaster of symptoms and emotions, and it's hard to explain because it's one of those invisible diseases, so you look mostly ok on the outside-- but on the inside, your body is fighting a war...against itself! #notcool
.
And you might remember that time I shared that my biopsy (of the nodules on my thyroid) came back normal. Well, JK! Because shortly after some additional, and very expensive 😩, testing, the results for one of them turned out to be 'suspicious for malignancy.' I was under the impression that the second round of testing would give me a definitive answer, but, nope! Turns out the only way they could tell me for sure if I have thyroid cancer is by removing it and sending it off to be tested.
.
So the nodule issue, plus an extremely large thyroid gland (aka goiter), on top of my #gravesdisease made me a perfect candidate for a total thyroidectomy. The way my surgeon explained it, I would eliminate 2 out of the 3 major issues I've been dealing with (goiter and potentially cancerous nodules). When she put it that way, the decision to have the surgery was kind of a no-brainer.
.
Aaaaand that brings us to today. One week post-op, (this is a pre-op pic of me, after pic to come once bandages come off!) with my follow up appointment scheduled for later this afternoon. *fingers crossed for good news* Other than an extremely sore throat last week and some soreness in my neck/upper body, I feel great and recovery has gone extremely well! There's still a long road ahead but I've had more good days this past week than I have in the past few months-- major cheers to that! 🍻 (cont'd in comments)

A month ago, we found out that my daughter’s left thumb was...stuck. Just stuck. Doesn’t move left or right or back or front or around. It doesn’t even bend. It’s literally stuck in a curved position.
To say we were shocked is an understatement. We were horrified. More at the fact that we never noticed it than anything else. We didn’t know when this happened or how long it’s been and how could we have missed it? We did a quick google search to figure out what this was. At first, my husband and I thought it was some sort of birth defect, but google quickly informed us it was a condition called “trigger finger”, which is the sensation of locking or catching when you bend and straighten your finger. The tendons that bend the fingers move with the help of pulleys. These pulleys hold the tendons close to the bone. What happens with trigger finger is that the tendon becomes inflamed because of a certain movement and the pulley gets stuck.
We immediately took Layla to see a specialist, who confirmed the diagnosis and told us at her age, she needs to undergo a surgical procedure to fix it. It is a very simple and straightforward procedure where he makes a small cut at the base of her thumb and pulls the pulley free so it becomes “unstuck”. The only thing that worried me at the time was that she would have to be under general anesthesia for a full hour. Alhamdullilah, she had the operation last week and everything went well. Her hand is fully bandaged at the moment, so we’re not sure what the recovery will be like once the bandages come off, but at the moment, Layla is well and in good spirits.
The reason I’m sharing this is because I had never heard of this condition before, and as a parent, I have been racked with guilt for failing to notice and wouldn’t want anyone else to go through this unnecessarily.
So at least, now you know.

Too often we underestimate the power of a smile, an encouraging word, an honest compliment or small act of kindness. But these are the very things that can change lives and deeply affect individuals and society as a whole.
We don’t heal in isolation, but in community.
Thank you for being all of this to me and more! I’ve so appreciated every prayer, every kind word and all the support you’ve given me over the past three years and most recently with my additional knee surgery yesterday. It’s been comforting having so many people rooting for me. Thank you!!!!!
Here’s an update:
Surgery went great. I walked out of the surgery center, but was cautioned to not overdo it with a false sense of healing since I was loaded up with anesthesia and pain killers. So I pretty much laid on the couch all day with ice on my elevated knee. I stayed on top of my pain meds, but the only draw back is they cause insomnia for me, just the opposite I would imagine they should cause. But I did sleep off and on, rising to use the restroom MULTIPLE times (with ease) from all the IV liquids during surgery.
The doctor said my ACL is very strong and secure. The micro fracture repair I had done in the damaged cartilage has filled in nicely with fresh cartilage fibers. He found debris that he shaved off, which he said could’ve been the source of limitation. He also manipulated my knee to hyperextension and full flexion which I’m hoping, once the bandages come off, I’ll be able to recreate now that the channel has been forged. Overall, I’m extremely optimistic. I haven’t had a pain killer since last night at 10:00pm and seem to be feeling fine!
I also had a PRP (plasma rich protein) injection in my elbow to help with chronic tendinitis. The PRP will help stimulate new cell growth which promotes healing to the tendons in that area. I won’t know the full effects of that procedure for another few weeks though.
Thanks again for being my cheerleaders. It’s so nice having such amazing people in my corner!!

.
Book Description :
On a hot summer night, a screech of brakes and shattering glass changes two lives forever.

Torn between the boy she loved as Liv and the boy she’s grown to love as Morgan, Liv still has to survive Morgan’s last request.

.
Here’s the deal... I woke up in an off mood, but it’s been like this daily. I only take my heavy pain pills at night to get better rest but they give me crazy lifelike dreams that take me a bit to recover from. I’ll wake up crying, sweating, or even times in a panic. It hits my #anxiety to the point I have to question reality, what it meant ect.
.
But today I decided im over it, it was going to be a good day, & wouldn’t let it effect me, as much as I wanted to lay there, I legit said ok - it’s enough 5-4-3-2-1 get up. (Well roll out of bed basically lol)
.
So I’m celebrating all the small wins once again... I was physically able to make my bed for the first time in almost almost 4 weeks since my surgery, my swelling is going down & I started to see my real abs I worked so hard for years to peek through. My fav salad spot opened by my house, & a bestie called randomly free to have lunch... so I cleaned up my bandages ASAP, got dressed, got on makeup, & had the best time just catching up with my girl. I took a mental health and self care day, as I got a car wash, picked up new hair products for me and my #curlygirls, then we get to celebrate my sons new job, at a fav store that I get to use a discount at 😝
.
Each day we have a decision to make, and we can choose to make it what we want!
.
Tonight I’m switching my meds, I’m goin to bed early, I’m going to get back on my early morning routine, & continue to heal one day at a time, while remembering the goals and dreams my team and I have worked so hard for, and finish planning this special weekend.
.
I can’t workout my body, but there is still so much work inside & nutrition wise that I can do to make each day its best, until I can.
.

I live this blessed life because I refused to give up, to be defeated, and knew it was meant for more. My New Years push might have come to a slow start - but I’m coming for ya bishessssss, and can’t wait for y’all to join me as we go into the year ahead! .
Hope your day was amazing, and if not, decide now that you will enjoy the rest of what left! 😘

They are so dangerous and can result in broken ribs(&more).
-I sometimes bind using is the "two sports bras" method. You put one sports bra on the normal way, and then another one backwards on top. Someone told me that method is even better if you fold the second bra up to around your nipple area and secure it there with safety pins.
-Some others tips I have are wearing baggy shirts or, if it's not too hot, layers of clothing, starting with tight clothes and ending with loose ones.
-Wear a black/dark coloured top if possible. Shadows from your curves will be harder to notice on dark material, giving the appearance of a flatter chest, at least from the front.
-There are ways of getting free binders. I can't think of any off the top of my head, but message me again and I'll come up with a list for you c:
-You can find tutorials for diy binders online! Look some up, but make sure they are safe first. If it contains duct tape or bandages it's definitely NOT safe.

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a week😭😁As Newt and I walk over to Frypan, my foot slips out from underneath me. I tumble to the ground, earning a huge cut on my arm from a rock. I groan as Newt picks me up from the ground. "Woah love are you okay?" "Yeah I'm fine." Blood starts gushing out of the wound. "Come on let's go find Jeff." Newt's hands are covered in my blood, but he pretends that he doesn't notice. We enter the Homestead to find Jeff and Nick.
Great just what I need.
"What happened Y/N?" Jeff asks. "Um, I tripped and fell." That earns a smirk from Nick, and I can tell he's trying not to laugh. Newt holds on to me tighter, I give him a reassuring smile in return.
Nick walks over to Newt and I, "Here let me help." I groan but sit down, I will not let Nick get the best of me. Newt sits down on my other side as Nick gathers supplies. I whisper in Newt's ear "Calm down, it's okay." He just grunts and clenches his fists. Nick walks back over to us, and lays out all the tools. "Can I see your arm?" I reluctantly gave him my hand has he cleans the wounds. I can feel Newt's eyes burning into Nick, watching his every move. Nick finishes wrapping the bandages and grabs the scissors. His hand slips and he cuts my thumb almost to the bone; blood immediately pours over my hand. "Ah!" I jump away as pain shoots through my finger. "What the hell Nick?!?!!" Newt grabs Nick by the shirt. "It was an accident!" Newt throws Nick to the floor and I'm left sitting there bleeding in awe.
Newt walks over to me, "Love, are you okay? Tell me what to do." I tell Newt to grab the bandages and wrap them around my thumb. He does as he's told but its not very good, but it will have to do. I look over at Nick, he's out cold. "Let's get out of here." Newt grabs me and carries me out of the Homestead and into the forest.

But I know for every setback there is a chance to comeback and rise. 🙏
Sometimes I don’t think I have it in me to come back. It’s been such a rough year with the losing my younger brother and my mother and then the back surgery. At times I’ve fallen into despair. But It’s hard to be sad when there is so much love and beauty in the world.
🙏
I believe in each one of us there is a fire that burns bright and there is a resilience to live, to shine, to thrive.
🔥
This resilience manifests as a voice inside of me that says, “get up, keep moving, you got this.” 🙏
And each day I try to be a little better and do a little more than I did the day before. Progress is success. 🙏
If you’re reading this and you’re struggling, listen to that voice inside of you, that positive voice, that says get up, get going, you got this. Take those first steps as hard as they may be, because I know for sure things will get better.

I'm no survivalist and prepper expert, but I do know a few basics. Why? Because In the times we will be facing and the events to come shortly, steady physical prepperation besides spiritual preparation is the wise thing to do. When it comes to getting a game plan together, learning skills and tactics will be more than useful during an emergency situation as well as stocking up on essentials for at least 3 months.

My view has always been...its better to have the essentails (food, water, gear, etc..) and not need it, than for a crisis situation to happen and need it. Never be caught unprepared especially  when the Lord has placed it upon the hearts of many of his children to prepare and store away different necessities. An event could happen at any time in these last days whether it be the grid going down, a natural disaster, a man made disaster, a police state atmosphere, etc...it's not a question of IF its a question of WHEN it happens. Here are some key things to know about Survival:⤵️

🔸️First is Food. Food will be the first thing to get snatched off the shelves. Therefore some long lasting food to stock up on includes: Powered Milk, Dried and Instant Beans, Rice, Salt, Canned foods, Pasta, Wheat, Corn, Sugar, Vitamins, etc...don't forget to look at expiration date before you buy. Water is also a no brainer, although there are different ways to which you must learn how to store it, for long term. If you want more long lasting food, freeze dried foods is a great option. Mountain House and Wise are good company options to look into.

🔸️Next is medications. Obviously have a decent first aid kit with things such as bandaids, Ace bandages, Gauze, Alcohol pads, Nitrile gloves, etc...For medications to stock up that do not require prescriptions include ➡️Ibuprofen, Motrin, Tylenol, Loperamide, Benadryl, etc...do the research on what they do and which suits you.

This week is always a hard one every year, as it’s a reminder of a time where the last thing I felt was free. While everyone around me was celebrating their independence, I remember the pain I felt, hearing fireworks from my bedroom, bandaged up wondering what my face would look like after the bandages came off. That day was 19 years ago this week, and there’s not a day that goes by where I don’t thank God for this precious life and the path it lead me down. For me, Independence Day has meaning beyond measure. Today, I’m grateful for the freedom I feel from the inside out, and there’s no greater blessing than to say it out loud. •


Thank you @bradolsonphotography for capturing this organic, no makeup shot of me (with the exception of lashes 😉) on the 19th anniversary of my car accident. I didn’t really realize how vulnerable I could feel without any coverage on my scar until staring straight at the camera in that moment. I did this as a reminder of the journey I’ve been on, and a celebration of the person I am. Special thanks to my dear friend @believing_in_beauty for strapping her baby on her chest to hold my hand and style hair and wardrobe on set, I love you and am so grateful for you. •


RISTYLE never would have happened if I hadn’t gone through 4 surgeries and years of battling such visible scarring on my cheek. Turning my pain into my path and helping others feel beautiful through my work is the most gratifying feeling in the world to me. If you know me, you know I make it my number one goal to empower the people around me, and I’m thankful for the support of you all. Stay tuned for more about my journey to come, and if you have your own story you’d like to share with me—I’d love to hear it, send me an email! •


Happy 4th everyone 🇺🇸❤️✨

I had ordered a book (Ardennes 1944) for Grandpa that just so happen to come in the mail today while I was visiting. We spent the next 3 hours hours talking; well he talked and I listened. I am still blown away with his sharp memory! His stories date 1944 but he tells them like they were yesterday. ... I had ordered a book (Ardennes 1944) for Grandpa that just so happen to come in the mail today while I was visiting. We spent the next 3 hours hours talking; well he talked and I listened. I am still blown away with his sharp memory! His stories date 1944 but he tells them like they were yesterday. He told me he had come down with pneumonia the day before they were called to battle; he had a friend cut the bandages that were tightly wrapped around his chest so he could breathe and prepare for battle on Dec. 19.... Around a week later on Christmas or the Eve of he stayed behind his battalion; still sick he felt he couldn't go on. He explained he found warmth from the harsh winter by lying down on some hay inside of a barn.. He said he blacked out and woke up the next day inside the home surrounded by a Belgium family that brought him in from the cold; they fed him and sent him on his way. After locating and hot wiring a Jeep he was able to make it back to HQ. He continued to speak of their journey pushing across Germany in the following months....the victories and of the losses endured. .

Dr. Karakosta Papachristou is one of half a million Greeks who fled the country for Europe's more affluent north during the past decade.⠀

"When my mother visited me in Sweden two years ago and saw my life there, she burst into tears and told me she realized I’m never going to come back," the doctor said during a short visit to Athens.⠀

With Greece's international financial bailout ending on Aug. 20, marking the symbolic end of the eurozone's long debt crisis, she and millions of her compatriots won't be celebrating.⠀

"My Greek colleagues have to work long hours in hospitals that often lack even bandages, and they earn no more than a shop assistant,” said Dr. Papachristou, who doesn't intend to return to her native country. ⠀

The Athens government hails the end of the bailout as a historic day when Greece recovers its national freedom and independence. Meanwhile, pessimism and anger prevail in much of Greek society, after a decade of economic depression that has left people exhausted and disillusioned.⠀
