Comments Off on 2016 Word of the year – YES YES YES
If you saw my post on Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert, you have seen how i stumbled upon my word of the year, ok maybe not stumbled but got reaffirmed it was my word.
I had been thinking about what I wanted to do this year, what I wanted to accomplish. I did so by using Powersheets and just plain dreaming. This has also been a hard time medically so I have been low on both inspiration, energy and just a general blah feeling.
Two Words: SHONDA RHIMES
I am big #TGIT fan. My favorite is #Scandal and I like #HowToGetAwayWithMurder. Basically Scandal inspires me in my dream of wanting to get to Washington DC to affect people that have rare diseases that no one has heard of.
AND I LOVE TED TALKS
And she also has a book by the same name
Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person
It is also my word of the year because I have let fear run my life and I am tired of being in this blah feeling. I have been afraid of doing it and have been just making plans and not acting on those plans , and I didn’t like how ACT sounded.

Best Day in your life, Part One
I am only going to tell you about one although I have 5 I can think of off the top of my head. Ill tell about the rest later, that’s why it says part one.
This is the first because its when my dream came true to have a little sister or brother. My mom had already miscarried once so she is truly a gift. She is the healthy one and I am the sick one, aka the one with all the doctors appointments and health history a mile long. Having a sister is like having a built in friend, its the best although there are lots of times I say I want to kill her. I really dont want to; I just know she is just being a teenager, I know she loves me and she knows I love her. This is a sister appreciation post.
The first one is when my little sister was born, we are 11 years apart but we are so alike yet so different. It is also the best day because before that my mom miscarried and I have always wanted a sister. It’s just not fun to be an only child some times. Now I have a built in friend, most of the time, someone to share secrets and watch Disney movies with. She inspires me everyday and I try to be a good role model to her.
We have had lots of adventures and I bet we will have many more as we grow up.
Oh and we both love Disney movies, and like Frozen A lot. She is Anna and I am Elsa. Scary thing is the match is prefect for our personalities and portrays just how we feel about each other some times.
My ideal day would first consist of me feeling awesome, this is important because it doesn’t seem to happen very often. #DBAProblems #Spoonie #DBA #IHateNeedlesToo I would then have a slow morning in which I would spend the morning reading and doing Bible Study. I would go outside until lunch and eat outside.
Recent Family Adventures
An adventure with my sister to Mayfield Dairy mmmm , Ice Cream
Stanford Stadium; Between the Hedges Go DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!
Then I would love to go somewhere with my family or friends. Another facet of my idea day would be wandering around a bookstore all day and then get coffee or some other type of food and discuss politics with someone who actually knows what is going on in the world.
I would then love to find someone to watch some of Harry Potter movies with me. I would love to end the day with either ice cream or coffee and hanging out with my family or friends.
I just love when the flowers start blooming. It came at a particularly good time because it provided just the right amount of hope for me. This year has been hard on me and it has been hard for me to see the good in things. Spring is good for reminding people that because it means that new growth is starting and the earth is coming back to life.
Also its spring when Easter finally happens. Easter in itself is enough to give hope because of my belief in God and what he did. He died, for my sins, in one of the most painful way possible and then he rose from the dead three days later. Its remarkably amazing and gives hope and is really helping me to work through these hard days and that there is something more than just what happens on earth. No matter what we suffer through he is there with us.
