Always Go Uphill

March 29, 2014

   My favorite phrase or quote has always been, "You can't go uphill, by thinking downhill thoughts". I always believed this to be true, but I never believed this to be so true until now in my later years. I have learned so much more in this last year, than I have in my whole life, I feel like. This last year, I have learned  how to be stronger, how to be happier, how to love myself, how to forgive, how to let go, how to be free, how to care, how to love and be loved, how to be a good caregiver, how to be a better person, and so much more.

   I am thankful for every trial big or small in my life. Those trials are what makes us better people and the trials prepare us for our next trials in life. Staying positive is the only way to get through things that are hard. Taking one step at a time. One day at a time. Maybe just one moment at time, will help us get us through the hard times. Lean on someone, talk to someone, be a listening ear to someone, reach out to someone, just be there for someone in a hard time will make all the difference.

   Just remember, things will get better. They always do.  :)


Music = Therapy

March 29, 2014

  I put the app, Pandora onto my mom's phone this last month. Pandora is like a music lover's heaven with loads and loads of different music that you can listen to for FREE! I set up some different stations and singers that my mom would enjoy. I added Celine Dion, Michael Buble, Katy Perry, Tim McGraw, Neil Diamond, just to name a few.

   Paul bought my mom some head phones, for her birthday, so my mom could listen to some music, and so she could jam out to the music, which she LOVES to do. Paul and I enjoy driving my mom around with our radio on and she has her own music on. She loves singing to her songs and it is fun to listen to her sing because she is so happy in her own music world. Music has been the best therapy! It's fun to watch my mom walk out of her house all ready to go with her head phones on when we get to her house to pick her up to go somewhere. She loves to wear her head phones while walking at the park, when we take Lucky for walks, at the doctor office after the doctor visits (helps her cool down, after the visits stress her out), while walking Tiger outside on his leash, & while driving in the car.

 I'm so thankful that my mom has found something that she enjoys and that brings her happiness right now in her life!
