  1. How people act towards you has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. 

  1. Setting boundaries are essential to survive.

  1. So is morning and night routines.

  1. That truly living is not going to out to bars or clubs but actually appreciating every little moment in life knowing that things can change in a second.

  1. You can be on your deathbed and people will still be selfish. 

  1. You can’t care what others think (finally after 25 years I learned this)  because no matter what people will judge, people won’t understand and I am mad for all the times I felt I needed to prove myself to people.

  1. My mom is my angel and without her I am not sure how I would get through this healing journey, which is why I share everything I learn with you all. 

  1. There are a lot of sick people who are suffering in the world and not enough answers.

  1. There are a lot of kind caring people in the world.

  1. Affirmations are really so powerful.

  1. I am resilient. Truly resilient. 

  1.  Resting is productive, resting IS doing something. 

  1. Having chronically ill friends are the only people I can never lose a bond with, because we will forever unfortunately AND fortunately share the same bond being chronically ill and not understood by the world.
