My Top 9 of 2018


My Top 9 of 2018:

If I’ve learned anything from this year, it’s that sometimes, the darkest times can bring us to the brightest places. I’ve learned that the most toxic people can teach us the most important lessons; that our most painful struggles can grant us the most necessary growth; & that the most heartbreaking losses of friendships & love can make room for the most wonderful people. I’ve learned that what seems like a curse in the moment can actually be a blessing, & that what seems like the end of the road is actually just the discovery that we are meant to travel down a different path. I’ve learned that no matter how difficult things seem, there is always hope. And I’ve learned that no matter how powerless we feel or how horrible things seem, we can’t give up. We have to keep going. Even when it’s scary, even when all of our strength seems gone, we have to keep picking ourselves back up and moving forward, because whatever we are battling in the moment, it will pass, & we will make it through. We’ve made it this far. We can make it through whatever comes next. Let’s bring on the New Year!! I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store!!πŸ™πŸ˜πŸŽ†πŸŽŠβœ¨πŸ’›πŸ’› #thisyearwastough #definitelyoneforthebooks #wemadeit #learnedalotthisyear #alotofgrowth #loveandlosses #testsandtrials #wouldnttradeitfortheworld #icouldnthavedoneitwithoutyou #imgladiliveinaworldwheretherearepeoplelikeyou #iloveyouallsomuch #thankfulgratefulblessed #thankyou2018 #goodbye2018hello2019 #cantwaitforthenewyear #cantwaittoseewhatsinstore #newyear #newbeginnings #newyearnewgoals #newdreamsinthemaking #letthejourneycontinue #imcomingforyou2019 #thisisouryear #keepfighting #dontgiveup #thebestisyettocome #2019isouryeartoshine #happynewyear2019 πŸŽ†βœ¨πŸŽŠπŸ˜„πŸ’›πŸ’›

Aimee Update:

As of November 5, 2018....

Β 

Hey y’all, so unfortunately Gianni Westlake & I are taking a break from each other for a while.πŸ˜­πŸ’” We are both trying to get better health wise. Our relationship is nowhere near close to being perfect & we do have our faults. So, we came to a conclusion that it would probably be for the best that we do it separately and we’ll meet back up in the middle....hopefully!πŸ™ πŸ’› The last couple weeks have been really difficult, but are getting better.😒 So, for the time being Luke🐰 & I are currently recovering at home alone. We are taking it one day at a time. I’d like to thank everyone for the unconditional support & love!!πŸ˜­πŸ™πŸ’›πŸ’› It means everything to me. Sadly, I know my birthday is on Friday, but its okay because Luke 🐰 & I are going to bake a cake πŸŽ‚ & have a blast together!! πŸ°πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚πŸ™πŸ’› But that’s my quick like Aimee’ Journey Update. I’m so sorry I’ve been so terrible at updating & keeping you all posted. I hope 🀞 that I’ll be back to my normal full Aimee’ self again soon!!πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸ’›πŸ’› And that my life can finally be normal & filled with happiness like I’ve always dreamt of!! β›…οΈπŸ™πŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ’›πŸ’›

Welcome to our journey✨ (February 17, 2018)

β˜€οΈHey everyone!!😁 I feel like I should introduce myself to you all.🌻 My name is Aimee’ & I am 24 years old. And 3️⃣ days after this photoπŸ“· & a few others were taken for my graduation photoshootπŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“ in February, Gianni (my bf) & I were in a car accident. But, little did we know that this car πŸš— accident was actually a blessing in disguise. If it wasn’t for this car accident I would have never of known I was walking day by day with a brain 🧠 tumor. In hopes to be the first person to graduate from college in my family, I pushed surgery off until the end of May. And guess what I did it! I was able to walk across that stage with a big ol’ smile 😊 on my face. It was one of the greatest moments of my life.πŸ˜„πŸ™βœ¨πŸ’› I ended up having brain surgery at the end of May & am now back at home in recovery. I do struggle every day, but I am sooo happy & blessed to be alive!!πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ I’m not in the clear yet from my doctors, but I am living life one day at a time & you should too because β€œI realize now how fragile life is & how important it is to live in the moment because you never know when that moment will be taken away from us.” β³β˜€οΈπŸ¦‹πŸŒ»πŸ’›πŸ’› β€’β€’ I’d like to welcome you all to my journey well let me say our journey!!😊🧠πŸ’ͺπŸŒ»πŸ’›πŸ’› And thank you to everyone who follows + supports me!! πŸ™πŸ™ I definitely couldn’t get through this journey without you!! Now let’s go & live in the moment together!! πŸ˜Šβ˜€οΈβœ¨πŸ’›πŸ’›

Quote of the day: August 3, 2018

✨QOTD: β€œOur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light✨ not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world 🌎. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are ALL meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights✨ shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” (Marianne Williamson)βœ¨β€’β€’

β€’β€’I felt like I NEEDED to share this quote with you all!! It has an important message. Something I truly & strongly believe in & is going to be my message throughout my whole brain tumor journey!! And my fave part is, β€œWe are all meant to shine.β˜€οΈ Its not just in some of us, it is in all of us.β€πŸ˜„βœ¨πŸ’›β€’β€’

β€’β€’ So go & shineβ˜€οΈ like I know you can!! Let the light in!!✨ Don’t be scared to shine!!β˜€οΈ You were meant for great things! You are capable of great things! You are meant to shine!! Now GO & shine!!β˜€οΈβœ¨ Once you allow yourself to shine you give others a reason & chance to do the same. How enlightening & inspiring is that!??πŸ˜„βœ¨πŸ’› So, let’s liberate others! Let’s all shine together!β˜€οΈβœ¨πŸ’›πŸ’› Life is better when we shine✨, grow🌻, & work together!! Life is already difficult, so let’s make it easier on ourselves. Let’s liberate others by liberating ourselves first!!✨ We can all shine together!! Who’s in it with me!??β˜€οΈπŸŒ»βœ¨πŸ€²πŸ»πŸ’ͺπŸ’›πŸ’›

Hey everyone thanks for stopping by! My name is Aimee’ and I’m 24 years old and currently living in Sacramento, California. I recently got diagnosed with a brain tumor (still unknown at this point) and just had my surgery after I graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. I am in the process of recovering and healing right now, but I started this journey in hopes to help me cope through my journey and possibly help others. So, welcome to my journey! πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ»πŸ’›

Before Brain Surgery Pics 🧠 πŸ“·

Pictures with my love before my brain surgery operation on 05/30/2018

Hey guys 😁🌻 β˜€οΈπŸ’› thank you for following my journey. I am having trouble and problems with my medical insurance covering some of medical bills. On top of not being able to work right after I graduated like most other graduates πŸŽ“ has been THE most difficult struggle and strain on my life and relationship with struggling to make ends meet with paying the bills on top of trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle to help my brain tumor journey has been quite difficult I can say the least. Lately I have been feeling down because I’m not able to provide that much for my home 🏑 like I used to. I’m not able to cook, clean, finish my diy projects, work, and help contribute with bills and outside expenses. I’m hoping soon I can recover and I’m able to help my significant other through this hard time. I’m just hoping our rough time will get easier, but we really are trying to make the best of what little we got and I absolutely love and adore that THE most about my partner. How we are able to enjoy the little things even though we are SUPER duper tight on money right now. If you’d like to donate to help to our cause that would be tremendously helpful in every way, shape, and form. I know my partner and I would beyond greatly appreciate and value whatever we can possibly get through this difficult time. We both are college students well I myself am a recent college graduate πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“ with school loans and now extra added expenses so life is quite difficult for us and I don’t have any support or help from my family at all unfortunately. The link will be below, my best friend from the 6th grade made it for me as soon as she heard the news. I couldn’t be more grateful and blessed to have people like her in my life. Thank you all so so so much for following my journey. It truly means the world to me. I am beyond grateful and blessed! πŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸŒ»β˜€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’›Β

Hello, now where to begin, my name is Aimee’ Green. I am 24 years old and currently residing in Sacramento, California. On February 20, 2018 my boyfriend and I on our way back from running errands got in a car accident. Totally safe and okay from the car accident with no bruises, bumps, or scrapes, but upon routine testing at the hospital because I was unconscious and they found a brain tumor mass on the right side of my head above my ear. This will forever be the day that changed my well let me say our lives. On May 30th upon constant fighting with my insurance to approve surgery, but also in hopes to be the first person to graduate from college in my family I postponed brain tumor surgery removal, so I can graduate from college and become a social worker. Guess what guys? I did it! I finished the last 3 months of college after the diagnosis of a brain tumor and was able to walk at my graduation πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“ on May 19th from CSU Sacramento 🐝 with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work. I had brain surgery scheduled to be right after graduation, but surgery was cancelled due to my insurance not approving some pre operation testing that needed to be done prior to the surgery date. The surgery date was rescheduled for May 30th and it was an all day procedure, but was successful. Now let the journey begin into recovery and getting back to being healthy πŸ’ͺ 🌿 🌱, so I can become a social worker like I’ve always dreamt of being!!
