2020: More Courage, Self-Control and Joy-December Edition

As I sit down to write this, I feel like I am in disbelief. It just seemed like yesterday I was announcing the theme for this year. This year certainly had its ups and downs. Not just because of the pandemic, but in my personal life. December was a quiet month for me.

I showed courage by going to the dentist. Part of my medical package is being able to have dental exams. I was a little nervous at first, but the dental assistant was kind to me. She explained everything we were going to do before we did it. My dentist was amazing. He was making jokes the whole time of the exam. I laughed a lot. What even brought me more comfort was he knows my orthodontist. He says that my oral health is good. I must go back for a cleaning.

When it comes to Self-Control, I have been working on my weight loss and my anxiety. I have started working out at home. I lost a few pounds then gained a few, but I am going to work on how my body feels overall rather than the numbers on the scale. I have found when I exercise on a daily basis, my anxiety was lower.  I went to my second therapy session and it was good. My therapist and I worked on finishing up the assessment form. Even though I was nervous about completing it she made me feel at ease. The next session we will be going over my care plan.

 I have a lot of joy in my life. I feel thankful for the family that I have, the small tight group of friends I have and my dog. As the pandemic continues, I feel grateful for my health and the fact that I am still able to blog and do my YouTube channel.  Jesus has truly shown me these three pillars this year.

I would like to end this blog by saying thank you to some very amazing people.

First, I am thankful for my audience, who I call my butterflies. No matter what platform you follow me on thank you for your support.

To my amazing team. Jessica, my wonderful editor, thank you for your talent, support, and friendship.

Matt, my assistant editor, thank you for the help on the book and for helping me with my blogs while Jessica had to take a personal leave of absence. You are also an amazing friend.

Melissa, thank you for your wonderful work on my graphics. You really make my YouTube and Pinterest pop. You are also an amazing friend.

Lastly, to my grandpa, thank you for not letting me give up on my calling. You see that I have talent. A talent that should be honored and not dishonored because of my disabilities. You see that I love to write and love to help people. Thank you for allowing me to build my business.

Butterflies, I have some amazing content, including my book, coming in 2021. I’m so excited to share with you. 😊
