The Call To Change......The Faces of MS

I am beginning a new journey, I am fortunate to have been given this opportunity to share my passion ~ The passion to impact and inspire others through fitness..... Now, I ask all of my friends with or without a chronic illness, those that have felt powerless in their journey, or those looking to get healthy and fit to take this journey and travel with me!! 

I feel passionate to help others that suffer with chronic illness. I challenged everyone to help me in this Call to Change the faces of MS.  It does not have to be a life once lived, dreams faded, and days of just memories of what could ....it can be, dreams, goals, and a life of living, dreams made come true, making memories and living beyond your potential!

 

       

      

    There is several ways I could describe myself -

    Mother – Sister – Career Woman – Published Author –Pro Bodybuilder – Fitness Model BUT the one that describes me PERFECTLY with the MOST honor is; I’m a SURVIVOR. Living with a chronic illness gives a new meaning of life to me. My journey began when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2002, now currently fighting this battle with fierce will. In 2002, I lost partial ability to walk, speak and partial ability to see leaving me paralyzed in fear. This devastating and often disabling disease left me questioning my life, my future; hence my passion to change the FACE’s of MS to HOPE. This passion has grown larger than fighting for me; it’s snowballed into FIGHTING for many. My passion as grown to help others that suffer with chronic illness – sorrow – despair – tragedy and simply a loss of self-worth > I challenge all of us to work together changing > HOPELESS to HOPE – PURPOSELESS to Purpose and WORTHLESS to SELF WORTH.

A few quotes from my upcoming book "Hidden Hilo" > look for it winter 0f 2015



Each day is more important than the previous ~ as today you have been blessed with one more day. Friends don't simply look forward without applying yesterdays lessons and opportunities to this day. For today you have been given the biggest gift of all ~ THE GIFT of LIFE..

~Flexy~
Practice today in making you a better you tomorrow 


Wake with passion to help/ set the burdens aside in see the blessings ...
Friends as you lay your head upon the pillow say grave to those whom will not wake to what you have the honor of!

~FLEXY~
Life's not owed to us / is bestowed upon us as gift


Life is precious – LIVE it. Love is possible – GRAB it. Anger is stagnating
– DUMP it. Fear is paralyzing – FACE it.  Friends things are beautiful, because the "heart" choses to see it that way

~Flexy~
The beauty of Life's not owed to us - its bestowed upon us as gift 

Remember STAY TUNED......
