This child of mine placed 6th out of 30 for his first time as a freshman!! And was the only freshman in his weight class to place! 💪🤼♂️ He has worked SO hard, changed weight classes, and grown and developed SO much as this season has progressed! He is kind of a dark horse......and I like it that way, but.....if he keeps it up.....he won’t be able to lay low for long! He had two amazing significant wins today! Terence and I are just beyond proud of him!!!!!! ❤️ You belong out there on the mat with the big dogs Cole....never stop believing in yourself!!!! 👊 #wrestling#wrestlingfamily#determination#hardwork#commitment#proudmom#neverquit#reachforthestars

I've had 9 hospitalized concussions, and people often ask me how this affects me. Here is some general vision information pertaining to concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries, of which I've had an estimated 7. "Essentially, Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Acquired Brain Injury is an insult to the brain, such as a blow to the head, stroke, or neurological dysfunction. The insult can produce cognitive, sensory or physical impairments; most are amenable to rehabilitation. The following is a list of symptoms of visual problems which can result from brain injuries:
Sensitivity to light, glare sensitivity
Reading difficulties; words appear to move
Attention and concentration difficulty
Headaches with visual tasks
Inability to maintain visual contact or focus
Reduction or loss of visual field (Visual Field Loss)
Difficulties with eye movements, such as:
ocular pursuits (eye tracking ability)
saccadics (shifting gaze quickly from one point to the other)
accommodative inability (focusing)
binocular vision (eye alignment, eye teaming, depth perception, 3D vision, stereopsis)
These visual problems can be successfully decreased or eliminated with various treatments, such as:
Optometric Vision Therapy
Neuro-optometric Rehabilitation Therapy (also, known as Vision Rehabilitation or Optometric Neuro-Visual Processing Rehabilitation) Corrective lenses, such as Yoked Prism Lenses
Phototherapy programs (Syntonic Optometry, Light Therapy)
Eye muscle surgery (strabismus surgery) is a very questionable treatment option for visual consequences of brain injury, because -- unlike rehabilitative therapy, eye muscle surgery does not treat the problems occurring in the patient's brain." Braininjuries.org

For those moved by my previous post and asking if Ali has been helped, he is doing much better now. He has received medical treatment for minor burns and smoke inhalation. His cat has been taken care of and they’re now reunited again. The Turkish government will help with a new house for him and his local community, the people of Turkey and the power of social media has helped him with funding and supplies #BeKind 💕
🚨 LONG POST ALERT 🚨
Please take the time to read. 🙏🏻 This right here. 👆🏼 This is what my dream coming true looks like.
I hustled my ASS off for 12 years for other people’s dreams. I’d pour a tiny piece of myself into my own dreams and goals - but that’s where it always stopped. I always chose to work harder in my unrewarding 9-5, than I chose to work for me.
It nearly ruined me.
The compound effect takes us all if we don’t recognize it’s power and use it in the right way.
We can “manage” the day to day if we are living unaligned, but that daily “survival” mode will surely combust one day - In the form of illness, failed relationships, lost jobs, burnout, stress, depression...it comes for us, eventually.
Everyone’s definition of alignment is different. And that is why it is so important to focus on your OWN and stop aligning yourself to other people’s worlds, lives, beliefs, influence and ways of being. The only place to align yourself is within.
Does this mean my life is easy? No. It is with EASE, but not EAS-Y.
It means the “hard” that I face, is the one I willingly and passionately CHOOSE to face. I CHOOSE this hard, over the hard I left behind me - now & always. It’s not even a question.
Does this mean I don’t feel stress? No. It means the stress I feel is only dictated by me - and nothing external to me. I’m in the driver’s seat. Fear and stress are here, but I make them sit in the back seat. That’s a solid boundary.
It’s Saturday night and I was pulling some berries and wine from the fridge. Taking a gentle break from putting the finishing touches on a workbook for the tribe of awaiting women on Monday.
I started to cry. It hit me. I did it. I took the Big Leap - the one I thought I would only ever read about in books, “wishing” it was me.
There’s one thing I’ve learned, above all else - we are responsible. If we want something - we must stop wishing it and start BEING it. It’s our responsibility.
