Putting health and family first


I have been MIA for a few weeks now.  I was faced with medical issues and a family crisis that I had to put first.  It would have been selfish of me to not give my full attention to each matter.  During these past few weeks I was able to address certain health issues that I had been keeping at bay by doing the bare minimum.  I think I let myself over think each issue to the point I assumed it would all turn out negative.  I put my big girl pants on and faced each problem head on.  It wasn’t easy but I learned that not all issues have to end badly.  In the end, I took the steps needed to better my overall health.  I might not be able to cure some of my health issues like Type 1 diabetes, epilepsy, gastroparesis, or anxiety/depression/maniac bipolar, but I can follow my doctor’s orders, take my medicine, and stay positive.  I learned my lesson and think I am overall better for it.  Don’t let the negative thoughts overtake your thinking.  If you start feel like your world is crashing, just take a moment and BREATH, then stay focused on positivity.

In these past few weeks I have had some ups and downs.  My grandmother, who is 91, was struggling with back pain that the doctors couldn’t pinpoint what was causing it.  The doctors finally realized what was causing her this immense amount of pain.  She has a fractured vertebra that can only be healed overtime.  Due to her age this was her only option.  She is being made comfortable and looked after 24/7 where she stays.  I am happy that the doctors where able to locate the problem and she is recovering one day at a time.

On the positive side, my son celebrated his birthday, April 2nd.  He is now 14 and is such a kind, intelligent, and funny teenager.  He is going through his growth spurt and keeps getting taller than me everyday.  Some other things I have done over these past weeks were all happy times.  I spent Easter with my family (mom & dad), my sister, niece, and son.  It was a special time.  I even did some dancing on the Wii, which was probably more funny than anything.  My sister, niece (she is 6 yrs old), my son and myself went the local zoo.  Since I come from a small family, I cherish every moment I have with everyone, it is even more special when I am not sick or in the hospital and can actually participate.  I could go on and on but I will save it for another time.

The dust is now settling and I finally have the time to catch up with my emails, blog, and interviews.  I don’t want you guys to think I left you hanging.  I have an interview with a great blogger at https://insilencewesuffer.wordpress.com, that I plan to post this coming Friday.

I have so much to catch up on that if anyone wants to email me so I don’t miss a previous email then please do.  Also, I still am looking for more bloggers to do interviews or guest posts.  Never hesitate to email me at jenmotivates12@gmail.com.  Just make sure to put something in the subject line so it stands out!

Much love




What is society becoming?


There have been news report one after the other recently involving the lives of children being taken or loss of their innocence being taken and something must be done! It breaks my heart so much I can’t watch it all, but I need to so I can help find ways to do something. 

I have shared a link of a 9 year child executed in Chicago 


Let me know if the link works. On a positive note, the Amber Alert system has been working. Just last night a 1 year old boy and his mother were abducted from Missouri by two males. The car with a Georgia license plate was found outside of Nashville, Tennessee due to the Amber Alert breaking into television shows even channels that are not your basic channels. I live in Tennessee so this story hit home. The route the kidnappers were taking was I-24 which would have come right through city. The boy and his mother were found safe. I have also attached a link.


Let me know your thoughts. 

Feelings of “LOVE….”


The world has taken on a new meaning

Colors have become vibrant and fragrances richer

You have me floating and wondering if I will ever come down

The MOST FRAGRANT flower, MY HEART, is opening once again

My normal controls have been melted away and replaced with

I have been sorting out some of my favorite poetry I have written over the years. Since doing my theme layout different and updating my main categories, I feet that I lost of some of my postings.  I do hope you enjoy this poem because this poem, is feelings that can interpretated on many levels for each reader. 


What’s in the works


Lately, I have been working on my first book that is built around my ups and downs. I want to write something that inspires everyone to turn negative feelings into positive and how I’m trying to reach others along with my goal to become a motivational speaker. Any suggestions would be very encouraging and looking for others to share their triumphs!

What more can I do?


I am wanting to interact with my fellow bloggers/readers/team players but I seem to be having trouble getting any response from anyone. What can I do to REALLY grab your attention because my goal is to turn my experiences into motivation for others.
I am working on an ebook that will be interactive for readers so that the readers can choose which path is best for them. I set up my email so that I can be reached for personal interaction.
This blog was created to bring more positivity, empowerment, and motivation for all but I can’t make this happen without your feedback. Please help me or show me, anything that I can draw in more of an audience but most important, feedback and support.

Away searching for insight


Been away for far to long but needed the time to focus on getting my blog in order so it can have an actual impact to my readers. Music has had a huge influence on my positivity and mood. Holidays can be hard for many people and I feel those of you struggling during this time. I have much more to post today so be looking out for it.

I fell flat…


I had surgery on the 17th and can’t get my ducks in a row since then. So much this and that going on one doesn’t know where to begin.

I missed the kickoff to the Blogging 202 (I think that’s what it’s called). The worst I let my readers down by not staying on top of things.

I am getting my positivity back on track and time to turn it up. Who’s with me?
