Last few pages of Chapter 28 and onto Chapter 29:

Chapter 28- 

 

It started off with pure bliss from chapter 27.  I was enjoying this new chapter and couldn't wait to turn the pages into seeing how chapter 29 would start off. I felt this undeniable sense of happiness and felt like I found the love of my life and soulmate. I felt like living in Massachusetts was my new home and where I'll reside and spend the rest of my days with my soulmate.....

 

But little did I know that sometimes good things have to come to an end. I know in the moment I felt an undeniable sense of love. A love that I've always yearned for, a sense of community, lifelong friends, and a best friend who was also my lover. But surely enough in the midst of all this I lost a sense of myself, my identity, and who I worked so hard to become in the future. It was a rude awakening for me. I either, one could continue down this path of being in love with someone and lose myself in the process or two, give up on love and continue to be who I am as a person. The hardest predicament I ever came across in my life. It was a big decision to make....

 

So in the midst of all of this....can you guess the choice I made either love or myself? Well if you guessed myself you are right! I know love is what everyone yearns for in life, but losing yourself in the process isn't the way it should be. I discovered that you should be able to have both things in life. Love and also be your best self at the same time. During my chapter 27 and a little bit of chapter 28 I was happy and in love, but I wasn't my pure authentic self. I felt like I was drowning and missing out on everything this life has to offer. I didn't realize this until we had a long talk about our future and it opened my heart to all the possibilities out there for me in this life. I know for a fact that life and time is never on our side. That time and life both are not guaranteed and you shouldn't spend a second of it doubting what if's and what could have been. That instead you should be soaking every moment and every day in. That you should be living every day to the fullest. You should be able to be your true authentic self and enjoy every aspect this life has to offer. You should surround yourself with other's who allow you to be yourself. You should be able to rediscover yourself every day all over again. 

I honestly feel like losing myself for that time being allowed me to see how precious it is to give someone your time, you heart, and your best and worst days. I gave up a lot of myself and sacrificed a lot to find love and in the process I lost myself. However, I felt like if I didn't lose myself I wouldn't have been able to rediscover myself all over again especially  in the ways I have now. I needed to go through this chapter to realize and notice how important it is to not lose yourself in this life no matter what for anyone. At the time I felt like these were mistakes, but they were actually beautiful life lessons. These lessons led me down a different path that I wouldn't have taken. I wouldn't have been able to taken these risks, I wouldn't have been strong enough to get through these obstacles if it wasn't for my previous chapters I endured, that I wouldn't know that whatever you're experiencing is just temporary and like seasons things will change and get better. I never lose sight of hope, I never lost faith, I never stopped believing in myself. I know that there is always greater days ahead of me and that there is a future waiting for me. 

I'm close to turning the last few pages of chapter 28 and on my way to a new chapter - 29. The new chapter is already off to a great start. I moved to a new state and in a new town. I found my dream career. I bought myself my first car. I'm in the process of getting my own place. I made some new friends. I'm starting the new chapter with a new mindset and creating a new life for myself. I was able to use these past experiences to rediscover who I am as a person. I was able to find myself all over again and be reborn in a sense. I'm so glad I never gave up, remained hopeful, never lost faith and was able to preserve through all of this. I can't wait for what chapter 29 has in store for me. I feel like this chapter will lead me to my best chapter yet. 

"I hope you never lose faith, I hope you never stop believing in yourself, I hope you know that there are always better days ahead of you. I hope you know that you shouldn't ever feel stuck. I hope you know that you shouldn't have to sacrifice yourself for anything else in this life. I hope you know that if you lose yourself you can always find yourself again. I hope you know that life and time is short and never guaranteed. I hope you chose yourself over and over again in this life. I hope you chose what's best for you. I hope you remain your true authentic self and stay genuine to your soul and heart. I hope you know that you're allowed to chose yourself and do what's best for you. I hope you bet on yourself and chose yourself in this lifetime. I hope you never give up on yourself. I hope you enjoy every moment and every day as much as possibly can. I hope you give yourself the same love you give to others. I hope you realize that this is your life and you shouldn't live it for anyone else, but you."

Merry Christmas Eve from Luke & myself!!

Welcome to our journey (February 17, 2018)

Hey everyone!! I feel like I should introduce myself to you all. My name is Aimee’ & I am 24 years old. Three days after this photo & a few others were taken for my graduation photoshoot on February 17, 2018 I was in a car accident. The car accident was a blessing in disguise. If I didn't get in it, I would have never of known I had 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 I did it! I was able to walk across that stage before I had brain surgery. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. 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 so happy & blessed to be alive!! I’m not in the clear yet from my doctors, but I am living life one day at a time & you should too because, “It made me realize how fragile life is and how important it is to live in the moment and cherish every second because you never know when that moment will be taken away from us.” I’d like to welcome you all to my journey and I can't wait to share our stories and go through our journey's together. Thank you to everyone who follows and supports me!! I definitely couldn’t get through this journey without you!! Let's share our stories and go through this journey together!!

Quote of the day: August 3, 2018

QOTD: “Our 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)

 

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, “We are all meant to shine. Its not just in some of us, it is in all of us.”

 

So go & shine like I know you can!! Let the light in!! Don’t be scared to shine!! You were meant for great things! You are capable of great things! You are meant to shine!! Now GO & shine!! Once you allow yourself to shine you give others a reason & chance to do the same. How enlightening & inspiring is that!?? So, let’s liberate others! Let’s all shine together! 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!!

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! 😊🌻💛

Social Worker here I come!! 😁🤞🤞💛💛

Graduation Day 👩‍🎓🎓 🐝💚💛

May 19, 2018 forever my favorite day! 😊😭💛

H🐰ppy Post for once!! 😊😊💛💛

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 👩‍🎓 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 💪 🌿 🌱, so I can become a social worker like I’ve always dreamt of being!!
