Lately I'm realizing that everything I thought I knew? Well, I've been wrong about a lot. Everything I thought I knew, I didn't know at all. For a long time I never thought I would be a mother, because so many messages from society told me not to dare even daydream about it. I never saw myself graduating college. I can tell you honestly when I was in 5th grade and in end stage renal failure, I was more than slightly terrified of reaching to build the life I have now. Amazing how that all works, right? Sometimes daring to even think about beautiful happenings is our biggest, most terrifying step.
No matter what kind of rules you feel pressured to follow, no matter what boxes others attempt to fit you into, there is always your own path. Forge ahead, don't look back, ask for help when you need it, but don't forget your biggest cheerleader should always be yourself. Build the life you want from scratch.
When we put fences around our dreams we are sending vibes out into the world that we don't want our wildest desires because deep down we don't think we deserve them. We wonder if we are strong enough to handle pushing beyond boundaries. I see wires in many different forms; physical, mental, emotional. Sometimes we imagine the wires ourselves and other times they can be tangible, either way we don't have to be bound or held back by them.
A life without limits, a life without wires, creating a life on your own terms while being able to design a life you love. Isn't that what we all crave?
Jabra sent me a pair of Jabra Rox wireless headphones and instantly it occurred to me that they provide freedom and music; two of my favorite things in this world. There have been several times over the course of my life when I have experienced the healing power of music firsthand; during hospitalizations throughout my life, endless hours in waiting rooms while I was going through the kidney transplant process, and when I was on bed rest during my high risk pregnancy with our daughter. And freedom? Well, right now I'm about one month shy of turning 31 and I've already lived 20 years past my predicted life expectancy. If that isn't freedom, I don't know what is. Beautiful things happen when you challenge predictions for your own story and set yourself free from limits.
Let me gush about the Jabra Rox Wireless Earbuds for a quick second. First of all, Jabra provides three different sizes of ear gels for the ultimate comfort. Plus, a protective bag for keeping the earbuds safe. The charging time is short and sweet; a simple two and a half hours and bam, you are good to go! It is refreshing to be able to have a devise I can use for walks around the neighborhood with Sookie and no wires to worry about! Connecting them to my iPhone with bluetooth is easy as pie. They are also wonderful as a simple solution for tunes while writing to keep the imagination flowing as I work on blog posts or my memoir. I often write on my Macbook late at night in bed. Many times our little princess is sleeping next to me and I want to be able to listen to something without waking her, and without the added clutter and mess of more wires.
