No Matter What, Take Care Of You First


I have forgotten I had drafted this post until I read a fellow blogger’s post that reminded me about it.

Hi all! I sometimes wonder why things happen the way they do and why some things happen at all that puzzle me.

I have spent the majority of August constantly sick from something. In July, I had gotten my first Covid vaccine. But, my sickness had nothing to do with the vaccine. A sore arm is the only thing resulting from that. 🙂

When August came, I felt fine then a few days into the month, I started going through my monthly cycle. But as the week carried on and another week came in, I noticed how weak I was becoming. The problem came and gone, and came back.

The things women go through health-wise and having other life problems were weighing on me hard. I went to the doctor and was put on antibiotics. It took care of the problem, but the side effects constantly made me sick from mid-month to close to the end of the month. (Sighs.)

As my body went through it all and I thought I can go back feeling like myself, my allergies got so bad I thought I had a bad cold. I felt miserable, but I didn’t go to urgent care or anything, because the side effects from the antibiotics were too much for me. And I didn’t want to put on anything. So, I ended up taking the natural approach.

I hated that not only being sick, people were also constantly stressing me about something, laid off from my job, and having to find another one, I had to still find something to keep my spirits up. To do something. I feel fine now since a week ago. And I went back for my second vax.

And I hate having to be on blood pressure meds and the new brand makes me dizzy just like the last one. I dislike my soon-to-be-former doctor because she doesn’t do her job well with me, and I have to wait for my appointment with the new doctor. (Okay sighing again.)

I’m saying that, no matter what comes your way, you still have to keep moving forward. Things seem to happen for a reason or to screw with your nerves and aggravate you.

The things that helped a lot for me getting through last month and the first week of this month was reading and more reading, writing and listening to music. I just finally started back dancing, in my own space, and it feels good. I gave it a yoga vibe.

I feel like when I take a more natural approach, my body bounced back better. There also don’t seem to be many side effects or lack thereof when going natural. I understand sometimes some doctors do their job, but the downsize from the others is how the patients are affected. I still have some health issues that I feel like I am suffering from because my soon-to-be-former doctor hasn’t taken care of my health problems. So as I should, I decided to do more than I have before, and not just go by what the doctor says when they aren’t doing their job anyway.

Okay, I’m ranting. I’m not saying not to see a doctor because you should, especially if you need to because some doctors are good doctors.

You only have one body. One life. You have to take care of yourself no matter what, and do what works for you.

Talk to you soon. Take care.

In All That You Do, Live In Love


It may seem hard to live in positivity with all the negatives in the world. Stay strong, rise above it all, and know that none of those negatives can bring you down. You got this because you are the co-creator of your own life. Know that God and the Universe has your back.

Whatever you do, most of all, live in love.

Be blessed.

#Writing Is More Than A Gift #MondayBlogs


Writing is and has always been something that is embedded deep within my soul. It is something you don’t completely abandon—you’ll eventually come back to it—because it is a part of you.

We can look at writing as a gift because, in a way, it is precisely that. We share our writing with the world whether for monetary value, for free, or both; it is a “gift” that came from our hearts, minds, and souls.

I love it ever since I learned how to write and could put sentences together. And later pages that turned into a manuscript. Writing can also be a struggle because we all have those days where we may feel like we can’t seem to write a simple word or sentence down. Those long nights, the fatigue, distractions, you name it, can get the best of us.

Though, when you keep going, you’ll see what felt like the struggle had turned into quite a blessing to share with others. If writing is something you love doing, no matter what, keep going and go some more, and keep writing. Whatever it is, don’t stop because you may never know whose life you’re impacting.

Sidenote: I started a website some months ago that I’ve been working on: pamelahester.com. I’m still updating it, but feel free to look around. I also have started a newsletter I would love for you all to subscribe to by clicking here. It’s a different one I had before, and it’s a way you can stay up-to-date with my website.

Do you see writing as more than a gift?

March Writing Challenge- Day 20: What’s One Mistake You Keep Repeating (And Repeating)?


I guarantee there are patterns in your life. Sometimes they are NOT good and that pattern must be broken. Learn from your mistakes so you do NOT repeat them again and again. #inspirationalquotes #lettinggo #letgo #moveon #moveforward #badassery #motivationalquotes #changeyourlife

The one mistake I keep repeating over and over is believing in what someone say, especially when it comes from a narcissist. I always have a problem in giving people more chances than they should, and thinking they will change. Sometimes, the signs can appear early after meeting them, and I also feel stupid trying to see the good in people. And then 9 times out of ten, they prove me wrong.

I have to learn to ignore the signs and stop trying to see the good in people who are clearly showing their true colors. Their mask slipping down their face like egg yolk. Or maybe, it’s the egg on my face not believing the truth in the first place.

I have learned, and still learning not to make those mistakes again. Though there are good people, it’s still best to have a spirit of discernment when it comes to the others to choose wisely.

What one mistake do you keep repeating?

March Writing Challenge- Day 15: If You Could Choose Your Own Life Obstacles…?


The more obstacles you overcome in life

Today’s question for March Writing Challenge is: If you could choose your own life obstacles, would you keep the ones you have? Um, my answer to that would be yes and no.

I said yes, I would keep the ones I have because one of my life obstacles is overthinking my goals. I’m afraid of failure and of things not working out the way I would like. Sometimes I feel overthinking is good because I wouldn’t rush into things without giving it a thorough thought.

I also said no because I wouldn’t want to keep limited finances. It is true that money can solve a lot of problems. If I could have more than enough money, it would help out a lot without having to worry about money for bills, food, and such. If there was more than enough money I could have, a shelter for those looking to better their lives for themselves and their children would be a great help. Money for food could be deliver out to or have a building used to hand out boxes and bags of food that a trusted person could monitor and give out to the ones who need it the most.

Life obstacles are something to learn from and overcome, and I like to think I am trying to do just that. Though, at times, obstacles can be a good thing because they make you stronger. Stronger to overcome the obstacles so when new things come up, you’re better equipped to handle them.

Thanks for reading.
