Life got very busy and I’ve been quiet…

Hello friends! It’s been a little quiet here on the blog. My life got busy. I am really working on posting weekly to this blog. I absolutely love writing and sharing how I am ‘Achieving the Impossible Today”. haha get it 🙂 Anyways, let’s get to it!

New Seasons

If you are human, you’ve probably noticed that you go through different seasons during life. There may be times in your life when you are busier, happier, frustrated, or whatever it may be. New seasons can be scary, exciting, and joyous. There are new things you have to get used to and some things you have to say goodbye to (don’t worry, I am not getting rid of this blog anytime soon!!).

My life has been on the slower boat recently and I am stating to receive a little acceleration on this boat. With the extra acceleration, I am wanting to hold on to the sides because it is a new feeling and experience. As the boat picks up speed, there are some bumps along the way that I am trying to overcome as well as some wind in my face.

The season I am coming out of is a slow paced and more relaxed life. It was a very beneficial season that I am happy for. While I was living through it, there were some difficulties. I wanted to constantly be doing something or engaging with my friends. It was a resting time for what God was doing within my life and what He is calling me to.

Callings for this season

The biggest thing that God has been teaching me and continues to teach me is rest. We live in a super fast paced society and this is counterproductive in the views of our society, but I am working on taking a Sabbath every single week. In this time, I would be able to spend time with Him, pray, and give my body a break from all that is going on. I will definitely keep y’all updated on this sabbath day.

There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.

Hebrews 4:9-11 NIV

I am now getting involved with several organizations (Fearless Movement, Fearless Women Ministries, ISMRD, Craniofacial Connection, and SNJ Millennials). Majority of these organizations I am attending events, but I am also volunteering my time in a few as well 🙂

I have started an instagram page for this blog! Woohooo!! I will be posting when I am posting these blogs as well as any updates for Achieve the Impossible Today. To follow the instagram, please click here.

Overall

This new season is an exciting time for me. I can’t wait to see what God does through me within this season. I am working on making a schedule, so I can make sure I post every week for this blog. I will also be making some adjustments to the website, so keep an eye out for some changes. That’s all for now.


Thanks for stopping by and reading this blog! Make sure to follow Achieve the Impossible Today, so you don’t miss a post. I am working on posting more consistently. If you have any prayer requests, feel free to comment them or contact me. As always, He can and He will help you through everything, we just need to seek Him first.

Rare Disease Day 2022

Rare disease day is a special day for everyone who has a rare disease or knows of someone with a rare disease. There are over 300 million people living with a rare disease. Some rare diseases do not have names and/or treatment options. To find out more info about rare disease day please visit: https://www.rarediseaseday.org

Welcome back to the blog!!

Hello!! It’s been way too long since I have written a blog post. In writing this, God has just shown me what He has done in my life over the past 22 years. I am so thankful with where God has me and everything that I have had to go through. Not everything has been easy, but He has a greater purpose than I could ever imagine. He uses everything for His good! If you have any questions about what I have gone through or literally anything, I would be more than happy to answer! I love sharing my story with others 🙂

My Story

Wait, you were born with a rare disease??

-yes, it is called Alpha Mannosidosis. It’s a lysosomal storage disease meaning there is buildup of toxic materials in the cells body due to an enzyme deficiency. My body was essentially missing one enzyme and that particular enzyme created an issue with all the cells.

How could something like this happen?

-it’s due to genes. It’s a genetic disease. My parents had a 25% chance of having a kid with Alpha Mannosidosis due to having the same mutation on the MAN2B1 gene. Crazy stuff, I know!!

What happens overtime with this disease?

-Alpha Mannosidosis is a progressive disease meaning, it will become worse overtime. I personally have had symptoms of: hearing loss, cognitive issues, memory issues, processing issues, balance issues, muscle issues, bone issues, etc… This disease can lead to being in a wheelchair and having difficulties communicating and everything becoming more difficult.

Yours doesn’t seem to be progressing, why??

-There are treatments that are not technically fixes due to still being in trials, but I was given a bone marrow transplant to stop the disease from progressing. It was a long path, but was worth it. My life changed forever and I’m so thankful that I had to go through that rough journey.

Is bone marrow transplant the only option?

-yes and no. In the US, bone marrow transplant is the only option. In other countries, people get enzyme replacement therapy. The downside to that is it is a continual process and is super expensive.

How long ago was your bone marrow transplant and do you have any challenges to this day?

-18 years ago as of October and yes I do. I have had some bone issues, but majority of my challenges are more focused on my brain. The bone marrow transplant stopped the disease from progressing, but whatever was done was done. I have challenges related to my memory, processing, and a few other things.

Will these challenges ever go away?

-simple answer is we do not know. Right now, I am doing a therapy called neurofeedback and it’s essentially training  my brain how to act. There’s been so many advances in the idea of neuroplasticity and how one day I may have the possibility of having no issues related to my brain. I have prayed about this, given healing within my dreams and people have also told me that God told them that I will be completely healed. We are believing that one day I will be healed.

Whenever I see you, you have a huge smile and an amazing joy about you, how is that if you’ve gone through all this stuff?

-One answer for this… God. He has done so much that would be way too much to write within this. He has taken me from the bottom of bottoms and has given me everything that I would ever need. I have experienced the fruits of the spirit because of leaning to Him in everything. 

What would you say has been the best thing to happen to you?

-there are millions of things that happen to us every single day. I would say that it was God bringing me to church through my best friend and meeting me where I was. Not many people know this, but I’ve always wanted to remember something from when I was younger. I have absolutely no memory due to what I was born with. My memory even from a few years ago is nonexistent. But when I went to church with my best friend 3.5 years ago, God showed me a little snippet of when I was in the hospital. I was looking at myself and I was as happy as could be. My parents said that I was always a happy kid in the hospital. They couldn’t believe it, but to me it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary because I was new to this thing we call life. 

Before you go…

I just want to leave y’all with this.

I am a child of God who happened to be born with Alpha Mannosidosis. Of course the journey has been hard, but we all have challenges of our own. We are all unique and that is absolutely amazing. God has created us to work together in this world. Rare disease day is just another day, but this day shows us that even when we are different we still have our own strengths. 

Being Busy…

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Matthew 11:28-30 MSG

Welcome!

I’m going to start off by saying that God convicts me in my writing. Writing has given me a new sense of slowing down and planning what I’m going to be writing. This is very new to me. With writing two blogs, I have to stay on top of my writing.

Confession…

I also have a confession to make… I’ve been so busy myself that I haven’t been spending time with God, haven’t been reading my devotional, and have just been on the go.

Life can get a little crazy and that is exactly what happened this past weekend. I was out of my house Saturday and Sunday. Typically I’m home all day on Saturday’s, but not this week! And throw in Halloween on Sunday. Busy and just not enough time describe this weekend.

I am sure you have experienced what I have just experienced. (If you haven’t, please let me know your secrets!!) It is so easy to get caught up in the busy lifestyle and forget all about what is important to us in our daily lives.

So, how do we stay on top of our priorities if life gets a little busy? This may be a question I may not have all the answers to. My two recommendations would be to have a list of priorities that are worked tightly into your schedule and pray about the things you should/shouldn’t be doing.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:33 NIV

Priorities/Non-Negotiable’s

I am just starting to do this in my life, so the kinks have not been all worked out just yet. If you caught my most recent blog, Planning, you most likely saw me talking about boundaries and priorities. I wrote out my priorities and went further by setting boundaries with those priorities. You can do the same, but we are just going to talk about priorities in this blog post. Below are some questions to start turning the gears.

  • What is important for you?
  • What is necessary to have in your life everyday/every week?
  • What things do you enjoy in life?
  • What is helping you to live a meaningful/purposeful/passionate life?

Once you answer these questions, you will have a list of some things. You may see a list that is perfect and lists everything that is crucial to your life. Feel free to add or delete things from this list.

By creating some priorities for your life, you will be able to see what your focuses should consist of. There will always be things that pop up and change in your schedule. If you want to take it step further, write down days of the week or a time frame that you would like to contribute to each category with your other commitments you have in life.

When we have set our priorities and have established some sort of guidelines/boundaries and implement them into our schedules, we will be able to keep up with what’s important in our lives.

I’m working on implementing my new guidelines into my life. This past weekend did not reflect the guidelines that I have established and in result of this, I am not feeling the best mentally, physically, or spiritually. I’m looking forward to getting back on track.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

John 14:27 NIV

Praying

This is something that I have recently started doing. If something comes up whether it be with friends, with family, or some sort of event; I will first pray. In doing this, I am asking God if this is what He wants me to be doing with my time. It can be a tad hard in the moment, but God always has our best interest.

For example, there was a Maverick City concert really close to where I live and God said no. I had no idea in the moment why God had said no. I was thinking along the lines of me possibly getting overwhelmed or not enjoying the concert for some reason. Instead of going to the concert, I had the ability to go to Longwood Gardens and take pictures. Photography is something that God is calling me to and He is helping me to refine my skills. While at Longwood Gardens, I also had the opportunity to spend the day with my grandparents and my mom.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 NIV

Thanks for reading today’s post about being busy in this fast-paced world! If you enjoyed the post, make sure to like and follow my blog. I am praying for y’all and if you have any specific prayer requests, feel free to leave a comment or message me directly.

Stop & Learn

Story Time

This past week has been. reset. Last Wednesday, I broke my toe next to the pinky toe. I highly recommend not breaking a toe. The second and hopefully last bone I break! Through this experience, I have learned that all ten toes are needed and such a blessing from God. I’ve had to change some things up, so I wouldn’t overdo it with my broken toe. I wanted to ensure healing could happen and did not want to put any extra strain on this toe.

Is It Really an Inconvenience?

This whole situation really got me thinking. Why is it when bad things happen in life we think it’s an inconvenience? Maybe breaking your toe is an inconvenience at first, but maybe this particular instance was supposed to teach me a lesson and to convenience something further within my life? It definitely felt like an inconvenience at first, but I want to encourage you to take a step back and see if you can learn any lessons from life’s inconveniences.

Breaking a toe at 7am is without a doubt an inconvenience when you look at it from the lens of the day just beginning. But a week later, it is feeling better. It still hurts, but I can put weight on it and walk normally. I now see that this span of time has taught me about preparing for the season ahead. I know, I know…it sounds crazy. Let me explain!!

Teachings

Let’s go on a walk down what God has been sharing with me during this past week. If I didn’t lean into Him, I never would have known. On Sunday, we had a family gathering for my grandfather’s birthday! It ended up being a great celebration and a monumental lesson from God.

One of our locations for celebrating was at the park. There were three total locations for the day! Before going to the park, I heard God whisper to me about bringing my camera to the park. And in being an obedient daughter, I brought my camera. It was actually a fantastic activity that did not involve lots of walking for me and my broken toe! I got to capture nature and the family having fun. I have put some of the pictures below.

Fun fact, I haven’t taken pictures since January and that was my second time using a camera since high school (6 years ago). To say the least, I do not know what I am doing. In this moment, God was unfolding something special. Later that night, I looked at the pictures and felt God helped me with this photoshoot. He then went on to tell me, “I am setting you free. Be the authentic, quirky, creative, purpose driven girl I’ve made you to be.”

I am very excited to start taking more pictures and using the gifts God has given me. We all have gifts. We have to be willing to learn and trust God in everything He has planned for our lives.

Depression to Now

Trigger Warning: This post does not go in depth to what I experienced, but may be a trigger for some. It is a story of how God brought me from where I was to where I am today. If you need help, please do not hesitate to reach out to a friend/family or contact the Suicide Hotline at 800-273-8255.

Who Am I?

Four years ago, you wouldn’t be able to recognize me. I look the same, but didn’t think the same. I don’t even recognize me. I am now filled with love, joy, peace, and kindness. It’s been a journey, but God has revealed himself and how good He truly is.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23 NIV

Depression Hit Hard

I was battling depression and wondering if I even deserved to still be alive. I was at a place where I never expected to be. Leading up to this, I was experiencing panic attacks, anxiety, depression, and to top everything off I was loosing my friends. I was at the darkest time ever. I am not going to get into the nitty gritty of what I experienced, but I want to shed the light of how God was always right by my side.

At the time of all of these feelings, I did not have a relationship with God. I grew up Catholic and strayed away. Honestly, I never truly understood God or even knew who He was. I alway thought church was super boring and pointless. If you know me, this thought is very different today!

I didn’t start going to church until a year later, but God was slowly planting seeds. Even thought I felt horrible, I still started college, was super involved, and constantly spent time around people. I did what I always had done, I kept busy and tried not to focus on what I was experiencing.

During my first year of college, I met someone who spoke life into me and was by my side on the worst of my days. He would then go into helping me learn yoga, meditation, essential oils, and the music I was listening to. He helped tremendously during this very crucial time in my life. If it wasn’t for this person, I may not be here today.

side note: I’ve always been against medication (if you are on medication, I am not trying to change your mind. Do what you need!!) and went through everything without the help of medication. My one doctor did not recommend medication due to my complex situation.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Ephesians 6:12 NIV

Our Choices Change Everything

When I was visiting a friend in Virginia Beach during the summer of 2018, she asked if I wanted to go to church with her and her sister. It was okay if I had said no, but I said yes. I wasn’t opposed to the idea, just didn’t think God was necessary for my life. We went to the service and I completely experienced a God moment which in turn kinda scared me. During this moment, He showed me smiling in the hospital when I was younger. This may not be a huge deal for you, but to me this was huge!!! I have no recollection or memory of my childhood and He gave me a little snippet.

I started going to church with the friend who had helped me up until this point. I was trying to understand Christianity and know the God who gave me this little snippet of my life. The more I dived into reading the Bible and growing a relationship with God; the more I knew who my Father was and that He didn’t want me to be in this depression. It was a battle when I was getting closer to Him and doing the things He has called me to do. I believe this was just Satan attacking because He didn’t want me to know the truth.

As time went on, I would have these moments of depression in my life. The more I turned to God, the easier it got for me to fight against the thoughts and feelings. When we know the truth and live with God, He gives us the strength that we need to fight our fleshly desires.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

Ephesians 5:8-11

Changed Forever

Today, I am a person who absolutely loves learning anything about God and I just want to grow closer to Him every single day. I no longer deal with depression. Anxiety is here every now and then, but I know that God will help me through everything in this world we find ourselves in.

I used to not see how God has worked in my life. I am learning new things every single day and He has without a doubt helped me get away from the horrible things that go along with depression and anxiety. I am so happy that I am finally able to share without feeling bad about what I have gone through. I hope my story can help others who may find themselves in a similar situation. Just know that you matter and are loved by God.

Sunday Gratitude

Just some quick thoughts for tonight…

Im taking a break from going through the Tony Robbins event I went to and showing some gratitude on this Sunday night.

I’m extremely grateful for everything that has ever happened in my life. Life has not been easy my friends. Life for me has been filled with twists and turns; I’m sure you can relate as well. We may wonder why things happen in life. We can ask that question all we want and still not get an answer.

I’m still not sure why bad things happen in life. My life has been filled with medical stuff that I can’t even explain to you right now. I know that everything that happens to us serves a purpose. We have to go with the flow.

I’m so thankful for having a different perspective than my peers. We all go through different situations in life and everything shapes us into the people we become. If I didn’t go through my trials, I would be half the person I am today.

I’m so thankful for the people that I’ve been surrounded with. I haven’t always had the people who are in my life at this time period and that is simply okay. I’m thankful for every person I come into contact with. I’m so thankful to be growing the relationships currently.

I’m so thankful for the ability to experience food. This past year I’ve really come to find out that I love food shopping, connecting with food, and creating food. I’m still fairly new to creating food, but that is okay. I’m enjoying this journey!

I’m deeply grateful for the life I’ve been given. Life is simply a gift and isn’t guaranteed. There’s been multiple times within my life that I’ve almost died, but haven’t. I’m so thankful that I can still be on this earth spreading joy, peace, and love.

That is all for tonight, I am grateful for everything and anything that I have been able to do in my life. What are you grateful for? I’d love to know, feel free to comment below 😊

#AchieveTheImpossibleToday

1,2,3…Another Week

Welcome!

Every Friday, I’ll be reviewing and reflecting on the hardest challenge of the week along with two Bible verses and three thoughts. Enjoy!

One Challenge

  1. Getting back to normal life – Last weekend, I was a part of Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within seminar. This event was amazing. We were constantly in a peak state and in an environment of growth. It was a fantastic experience, but going back to a life without that is a tad challenging. This week, I have been learning how to maintain the energy and good growth vibes.

Two Verses

  1. “The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 NIV
  2. “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

Three Thoughts

  1. Reading no matter what – If you don’t know me, I have vision issues due to a brain injury. I was in a car accident a few years ago and one of my issues are my eyes. They will blur randomly when I read or do anything. I have become desensitized to them blurring. I love reading and am working on reading books everyday. I tried audio, but that was not cutting it for me. I am currently working on reading Atomic Habits by James Clear and Radical by David Platt. Both books are fantastic!
  2. Morning routines – I have not had a morning routine in a long time. I do the same things every morning, but do not have a set schedule for when I get up. I feel I am missing several hours of the day because I typically get up at 8am. This may seem early to some of you, but I would like to start getting up at 6am. I have a goal of being ready for my day by 8am, so I can achieve everything I would like to during my day and get ready for the coming months.
  3. School classes – This thought kind of goes with the above thought. I am working on picking my classes out for next semester. I took this semester off and kind of lacking a schedule. To complete my degree, I have a total of ten classes left. As of right now, it looks like I will be taking four classes that will be Tuesday-Thursday. The schedule is exciting me because of having a somewhat free school schedule. I am planning on doing my homework in the morning time after my morning routine.

March Goals

Is it just me or did February come and go like the snap of a finger? It is crazy to think that we have already gone through two whole months in 2021. One of the things I wanted to do this year was to review every month and create a plan for the following month. Since I have this blog now, wanted to share what my goals are for March! Before we get to March’s goals, I am going to do a quick review of February.

February Review

  • Transformational Month
    • Change
    • Realizations
    • Community
  • Overall Lesson: Learning the importance of trusting that God is moving in ways that we can’t comprehend and we must trust in Him with all our heart.

To start off with, one of my doctors that I have been seeing for the past four years has moved to a different state. I am in the process of finding a new doctor at the moment. I was able to think about how much I have grown in the past four years. This specific doctor has been with me during the hardest seasons of my life. I am not one for change and this has been a very large change in my life.

Next, I realized that I have been idolizing the challenges that I face everyday. I deal with a decent amount of physical issues that limit some of the things I do. Some of these issues include blurry eyes (random times), balance issues (even when sitting down), headaches (possibly migraines), etc. I’ve been feeling stuck in my issues and knew life was not about my issues. At this point, I started praying and worshipping God more than I previously was. I gave it all to Him and I felt peace about what I’ve been experiencing. I am still dealing with the issues, but not facing them with my own strength. At the moment, I am working on everything that I would like to and adapting in any way that I need to.

Finally, I have been around amazing people this past month. I am in multiple bible studies, attending church, and connecting with people in general. I am in community with others and making friends I never thought I would have. I have always felt “different” and never really thought I belonged. It has been refreshing to find and to be around every single person in this season of life. I am so thankful for all of the conversations and moments.

March Growth Areas

Before getting into everything I would like to achieve in March, I would like to reflect on the areas that I need to work on during the month of March. These are simply areas that I lacked and would like to spend time working on. The two areas that need work are exercise and reading.

  1. Exercise
    • Currently, I am going to a weekly kickboxing session. I am not a fan of saying this, but I really found I like punching things. I never in a million years, thought I would have the strength to punch something. I am a very caring and gentle person, apparently with a lot of strength. I really would like to strive to exercise more than once a week to move toward a healthier lifestyle.
  2. Reading
    • Something I absolutely love, but keep giving myself excuses as to why I can’t read. I have eyes that blur randomly and always lean on that excuse. I recently thought of reading and listening to the audio version of the books (pro tip: you can listen to audio books on YouTube!!).

March Goals

  1. Writing
    • Writing has become a way for me to process what is going on in my life as well as a way to get away from all of the issues I face every single day. I would like to write one blog post every single day during the month of March. I am not going to have a specific time for these posts, so they will be sporadic every day.
  2. Exercise
    • As I mentioned above, I do kickboxing once a week. I am striving to live a healthy life. I eat healthy, but my exercise is suffering. To start off, I would like to do 10 minutes of a simple workout consisting of planks, squats, and sit-ups 5 days a week during the month of March.
  3. Reading
    • I also mentioned reading above as something I did not achieve in February. No matter the excuse, I would like to read every single day for 30 minutes. This could be in the form of an audio book, kindle book, or a physical book. I am hoping to finish reading Radical by David Platt and Atomic Habits by James Clear in the month of March.

For reminders about the above topics, I am writing Post It notes and sticking them on my bathroom mirror. My memory is not the greatest and I want to hold myself accountable for the above goals. I look forward to working towards these goals this month.

Do you have any goals for the month of March? If you do, let me know in the comments. I would love to hear what you are trying to achieve during the month of March.

As you just read, I will be writing a blog post every day in March. It might be a challenge on some days as I have certain things in my schedule planned, but I will make it happen. These posts will be about different topics, what’s going on in my life, and more! If you would like to follow me on this journey, don’t forget to subscribe!

#AchieveTheImpossibleToday

1,2,3…Another Week

Welcome!

Every Friday, I’ll be reviewing and reflecting on the hardest challenge of the week along with two Bible verses and three thoughts. Enjoy!

One Challenge

  1. One of my doctors that I have been seeing for quite some time has left. For me, this is a huge change. He has helped me through the most difficult times in my life during these past four years. There’s a lot of uncertainty from this change as we search for a new doctor who will fit my needs and be able to help.

Two Verses

  1. “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:” Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV
  2. “Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:7 NLT

Three Thoughts

  1. Change is the only constant – In life we will experience different obstacles & opportunities in each and every season. There is no getting away from change. Nothing will be the same as it is today. Change is the only thing that essentially stays the same. Change is one of those things that is super hard to be okay with, but when we are able to adapt to new situations, we unlock something incredible.
  2. Need for growth – As humans, we have a desire to thrive. We need to make sure that we are growing in all areas of our lives. I refer to these areas as the seven dimensions of life (spiritual, physical, emotional, occupational, intellectual, environmental, and social). If one of these areas are lacking, there’s bound to be some sort of issue that arises. When we are able to grow in all the different areas, we will see a transformation like never before.
  3. Mindset matters – Ever think to yourself about all the issues occurring in your life? It then goes down a spiral of feeling stuck and having no way out. Recently, I have been thinking about the energy that we use thinking about all of our issues. I turned it around and was like, “well…what would happen if we take our thoughts off of everything going wrong and place them into something we are passionate about?” This website is the culprit of that thought. When things are going wrong within my life, I have found I still have the capability of creating and writing.

Achieve the Impossible Today

Change of Perspective

Imagine being told the worst possible news or going through something that might cost you your life. Things happen, people get sick, accidents exist. Nothing is guaranteed in life. It is a miracle that you woke up breathing today. There may be chaos happening in your life, but you woke up breathing today. That’s truly incredible and a blessing.

You honestly have no idea when life will end and I don’t know when life will end. I want to show you that it is simply a miracle you are here reading this blog post right this second. It is a miracle that I had a chance to write this blog post. With that being said, I believe we should wake up every day with an attitude of gratitude.

My Perspective

Personally, life has been crazy and I have recently adopted this mindset of achieving the impossible today. My story consists of many times where I simply could have died. There’s been many times when I have wanted to give up. When I say, “lets achieve the impossible today,” I really mean it. The life I am living was not promised and is a gift. I have grown to learn how precious this thing called “life” is. We have one opportunity and I am tired of wasting time.

I will expand on my story in a later blog post, but my story consists of being born with a super rare genetic disease called Alpha Mannosidosis and being in a pretty serious car accident in 2015 that I walked away from. Through the years I have had memory issues, sensory issues, cognitive issues, depression issues, etc… I still deal with issues to this day, but I do my best to do the things in life that will help others. I don’t want my struggles limiting the things I do.

The Reason

Achieve The Impossible Today has come from a mindset that I have created. With that being said, I wanted to create a website that I could use as a space for me to share what’s going on in my life and how I am overcoming any obstacle that tries to stop me. I am determined to live I’ve been called to live.

We all have our own perspectives and how we personally get through challenges. This got me thinking… and the idea of creating a community that shares about difficulties and how every single person has managed to overcome their own difficulties was born. We all have situations and ways of handling them in life…why not share and build each other up? More info to come shortly 🙂

I desire to let others know that they can and will get through whatever challenge they are facing. Life isn’t going to get any easier and I hope to share some knowledge with you. I may not be perfect in the answers I have, but I’ll be sharing how I got through my own challenges.

Come follow me on my journey that I never expected to be on. Life is full of surprises and I am excited to be able to As of right now, I plan on staying consistent with publishing blogs, creating YouTube videos, posting on social media, and connecting with you!
