A powerful shift happened in my life when I stopped subscribing to habitual socialistic rhetoric of constantly being in search of “a Light at the end of the Tunnel” way of living. The Idea that my happiness, peace and relief from pain, discomfort and disappointment was tied to something or someone who would eventually have the power to control my unforeseen dark state was crippling. So instead I dug deeper ,found that I was the light within the tunnel & I lit that B*tch up. I am not a product of my environment, my environment is a product of the light within me and when I realized and accepted that, my entire life changed. God never puts your sanity, solitude and freedom in the hands of anyone, he has equipped you with every tool you need for the journey he has prepared for you, everyone & everything else are used merely as confirmation to being on the right path or not.#JourneyOf33 #Lighthouse #Page7

I believe it was 2014/2015, I called my doctor to set up an appointment for next week because I’d been having pressure in my chest that spread to my shoulder and even made me feel numb in my left finger. She told me to immediately go get checked not to wait because anything with your chest is IMPORTANT. So I did. The doctor said I’m surprised you aren’t screaming in agony from all this pressure. Stress had literally caused my muscle in my neck to become swollen and affect the muscles that are connected from my neck to my back and chest causing them to hit a nerveconnected to my arm, which caused the numbness. ( WAIT WHAT IN THE WORLD! ) All stress related, she gave me options and suggested I get a massage and I called Brenda, I figured she was good BUT I had no idea her spirit and tentativeness would be so soothing to my soul!
