  • I got these pretty eyelashes done by @spachappelle thanks to @jackee_spachappelle .
I don't often publish personal stuff outside of my mermaid stuff, but this year I've been very open about my health issues in hopes of empowering others. I have been doing cognitive behavioral therapy for chronic pain for a month now. I was doubtful it could help me, if I'm honest. But this year has been more of a challenge than many others, so I figured it couldn't hurt. I am surprised how much it has helped. Part of pain is how we process it. We can't change the sensation. We can't stop our feelings (feelings are ok!) But we can change how we think about pain, and our behavior. I've figured out what triggers in my life make pain worse for me, and noticed how different thoughts and choices can make it better or worse. 
Part of the CBT has been hard. I've faced questions I've never considered before. It's been weird. 
But all in all... It's been helping. .
.
If you deal with a chronic illness or pain, it's important to take a multidisciplinary approach to healing. There's no one magic pill. To feel better we must remember to look at ourselves as a whole. .
.
One thing CBT has been helping me with, is that I'm finally starting to like my body again. ❤️

  • EASTER • Happy Resurrection Sunday! Whatever you like to call it, TODAY is the day that celebrates what The Gospel is all about: VICTORY. ✨🙌🏼✨ Not only did Jesus, who is the Christ, die of His own accord bearing our burdens and sins, but HE ROSE from the Dead; not a resuscitation - A #Resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15)
.
“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (‭1 Cor.‬ ‭15‬:‭55-57‬ ESV)
.
The Cross and Tomb have been empty. This isn't a fairytale or philosophy. This is a historical account that can be traced and correlated with non-biblical historical writings. And today commemorates the work He did and the Glory of God some 2000 years ago! That was just the beginning for Christians and so much more is in store...
.
I’m praying for all who read this. I hope it’s an encouragement. And, if you have questions about Jesus, I pray that you ask and then you receive Him. 🙏🏼
Much Love 💕
