Why I started This Blog

Posted on

Good morning to everyone! I wanted to take a minute and let everyone reading understand why this Blog was created and where the name “Hero Within” came from. Just like many of you, I have been through my share of challenges in life. I grew up with an abusive alcoholic step-father, have been in a car accident, have had a horrific house fire and left homeless with two kids, have a daughter with a failing kidney, have battled AND CONQUERED cancer, had my best friend commit suicide and I was blamed by many, I currently live with a very rare illness and have a brain tumor. These are just a few of the many things I have been through. I do not believe or proclaim to have gone through more than anyone else, however, it is how I lived through each one and currently live today which may differ. See, I do not believe that what we are going through or what we have today defines who I am or dictates how I live. It is a choice. Everything in life is a choice. You can choose to let things bother you, frustrate you, depress you, sadden you, anger you, OR NOT! Believe it or not, you control your own mind. BUT YOU MUST CONTROL IT, or it won’t happen. I refer to this as my “Hero Within.” It’s that voice deep down inside me that tells me I want to be happy and have fun even in my most terrible moments. Your inner hero is the side of you that doesn’t quit no matter what. It’s the voice inside your head that tells you to do something even when everyone else tells you not to. It’s the deep down pit of your stomach feeling that says “GO for it. You can do it.” It’s the feeling of excitement and pride with yourself for doing something that no one thought you could do. It’s the feeling you get for thinking about achieveing something great and it encourages you to do it. It’s the belief inside you that you are great, you are worthy, you are someone, and you can and will do great things. Your Hero within is all of these things wrapped into one little fire ball that constantly stirs around in your body and mind. It flows through your veins like blood close to the surface so others can almost see so they know it’s there but it’s hidden just enough that it’s your powerful secret. Your hero. It’s the constant thing inside you that provides doubt when people say you can’t achieve something or you are less than perfect or great. If you can find this hero within, as you do have it, then life will never be the same. You will never go through life with a challenge again but rather a challenge with go through your life.

My goal is to help so many around the world going through a challenge or have a problem they simply can’t seem to overcome or feel like they are desperate. I want people to realize they are their own hero and can overcome anything AND  truly LIVE through anything.
