If something makes your heart race...

"If you can see potential in something and it make sense in your 💓, do it! Push harder, even if it will benefit people that won't thank you for doing it, later. Besides it was important to you and you are not looking for their appreciation, anyway." Pam Sowder

Yes, yes!!!! Yesterday while making sure my children were really on their beds to sleep I was listening to my Monday training... And when our trainer said those words it hit me in the right spot👌. I remembered me 8 years ago... And those picture are the illustration of what happened. The picture on the top, I was on my 3rd month postpartum after my second baby... It might not seem much, but I was 20# over my normal wait and was feeling sick emotionally and physically. I could better stand on my feet for 5 minutes and my legs would burn. My feet was swelling and red all the times... But being home with 2 little ones under 2 and have no one around to watch them for a little bit made it impossible for me to workout... Well at least I thought.
It was just until I went to see my doctor and had a bone density test done, I was starting to have issues with my right hip. The doctor recommendation? At least walk for 30 min every day. I started going up and down my stairs for 10 rounds, while my babies were playing in the living room, but after a week I got bored... And found out that there were many people putting workout routines for free on YouTube and I could do it at home... The pictures on the bottom are 3-4 months after I started doing it every day. My routines wouldn't be longer than 15 min. Because this was the time that was fitting for me and my life season.
Did I get support? No. For the first 3 months it was hard. Lots of time I did squats holding my baby, because she wanted me.
Right now I am in the same spot. Not about working out, but on my business journey. It has been hard pushing through the lack of understanding  and support from inside, but guess what??? I see the potential of this opportunity, and once I hit the goal, we all will be able to enjoy life as we need and want. I am doing it for me. I am doing it because my children deserve better and more.

How about you???

My new way...

How have I been #coping with "Life" happening?
Well, I am so glad and thankful I got to know this 2 herbal supplements and I need to tell you that I am someone that likes to test wether something is truly working or it is just in my mind.
After awhile I have became very cold and explosive. Most of the times I allow the emotions and feeling take over and I will feel very miserable after all. I have been taking this supplements for awhile now, and I have noticed a dramatic shift... Yes, I do feel it and go through life, still. But it doesn't affect me as baddly as it used to be.
For the first time in 4 years, I was able to rest on the week my son has his monthly transfusions, and even though I went through some crappy days, I didn't feel restless and miserable.. If you are open to give it a try, don't hesitate to click Here or get in touch with me for details. I would love to help you get yours and experience it for yourself.
Until soon,
Aline

Unfortunately, still we are silent....

September is the Sickle Cell Disorder awareness month, but to us also a month that brings the memories of something I wanted to forget... The first time my baby boy (learn more about him here)  was hospitalized due to a stroke😢.
Yes, both my oldest children were born with this invisible, betrayal and deadly disorder, but even though they both have the same type of the disorder, my daughter, so far has been in the blessed side of having only one hospitalization, at 7 months old due to a splenic sequestration, and I am proud to say that, because of all the learning and studies I did trying to understand my children diagnose, I was able to detect and tell the medical team exactly what to look for and saved her life, as they told me after all.
She, so far, has had mild pain crisis, they are not often and usually manageable with Motrin. She has never required narcotics for pain or needed medical attention for it. I pray she stays this way🙏🙏🙏🙏.
My son, on another hand, never experienced anything major other than dactylitis while teething, and those were always taken care with extra hydration at home, he never caught even a cold up until he was 2 years old, and despite his spleen being enlarged since birth, it never bothered him. He was a very energetic and active little peanut... And then at 4 he started having strokes😢.
I pray someday not to far from now there will be a solution to help the many that are fearing every day for the striking of this disorder.

Beauty of home education.

One of the main beauties of home-based education is the freedom to teach your children about different cultures...
I was born and raised traditional Christian, and never wanted it for my children. Not because I have anything against it, I just feel like they have the right to learn and know about everything without my judgement.
And I am glad this is possible, specially thanks to initiative such as the #pjlibrary.
This month is celebrated the #JewishNewYear and the #Sukkot!!! Instead of trying to explain what it means to them and make no sense at all, they got to read beautiful books about it.
