10 Tips For Being an Inspiration Living With CI


I find in my roughest moments I seek out to help others.  It seems to give me a better perspective of what I am going through by helping another person get through their difficult and challenging day.  Often when you are isolating yourself from people around you connecting with like minded people who truly know what you are dealing with is an important factor on being able to go on.  Today is one of those days for me.

Reach out to others, hear them out, share your story over a cup of coffee even if it’s here on this blog or you can come join us on facebook at Chronic Gal’s page.  I may not have a lot of energy today but I always have time to help another CI gal or guy.  Together we can fight this and not feel alone.

Have the best day possible

Courage Doesn’t Always Roar

Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying,
“I will try again tomorrow.”.✻´´¯`✻.¸¸.

I really love this saying about courage.  It always reminds me that tomorrow is a new day that dawns upon us.  Giving us new hope and to hold our heads up and find the courage to keep on going.  Whether it whispers to you or roars in your ears just keep trying!
