Celebration of Life (My Life)

Me- 41st Birthday



Yesterday was my 41st Birthday (yes, I’m in my forties honey… I don’t look a day over 30 -at least that’s what a twitter follower told me J lol..lol..) . Yesterday I took the time to reflect and appreciate the wonderful gift of life. This time last year I was still dealing with the diagnosis of Lupus and trying to figure out just how I would live. Besides a flare up and depression, what should have been a milestone celebration (my 40th birthday) was anything but. This year I decided things would be different. I’ve grown to accept that I will forever have lupus BUT Lupus won’t have me. I will NOT stop living. I will (and have) become an advocate and a glimmer of hope for all my lupie sistas who are still fighting. When I awoke yesterday (mainly from Face Book notifications – You guys were on it! Mini me had the first notification at 11:59 p.m. Saturday night), I immediately knelt down and THANK THE LORD for allowing me to live and survive another year-despite Lupus.



My New Grand daughter Mailia Elizabeth Fowler



I’m in a new city (I relocated to Atlanta), I became a grandmother for the 2nd time (hi Malia), my projects and businesses are thriving, I’m happy and BLESSED. I knew I would not sit around sad or depressed on my birthday this year. I was going to get dressed, put on makeup and rock out like only Mz. Sixx can. I decided I would get out of my comfort zone and I would start crossing a few things off my “50 before 50” list.



#My View- after the Falcons beat The Oakland Raiders 23-20



Yesterday afternoon, I attended my first live NFL game yesterday (Atlanta Falcons vs. Oakland Raiders). It was very exciting to sit in the executive suite (hosted by Verizon Wireless). The view was awesome- nothing like watching it on TV. I felt like I could reach right over and touch the players. I could see every move, every play, hear every cuss word (lol) and actually understood what was going on. I felt myself cheering and screaming like a Justin Beiber Fan (sweating out my freshly blow dried natural hair) cheering for the falcons to make a touchdown. For the first time I think this year, I had on my infamous 5 inch stiletto ankle boots, leather legging, and an Asian inspired top. Some of the executives kept touching my pants & rubbing my legs (Saying ummmm ” I like those” looking at me like I was a pulled pork sandwich). If I was conceited I would swear they were checking for me…lol..lol.. My co workers surprised me with a cake, they sung Happy Birthday, and we DRANK LOTS OF WINE ( lol..lol). During half time, the band played the wobble- and YOU KNOW YA GIRL GOT HER WOBBLE ON!!!!!! The cheerleaders did a skit and the players do a chat- and you RISE UP (#ayeeeee) #Go Falcons, it was like a party (or maybe I turned it into one …lol..lol..). Nonetheless, this chica had a ball. Food, wine, good company, and the home team won-made for an enjoyable afternoon.



Me-Rocking my Leather Leggings



It felt good to get out-breathe fresh air- and celebrate MY LIFE… MY WAY! The celebration hasn’t stop and it won’t stop (in my Diddy voice.. “Won’t stop..Can’t stop”). I made a vow to myself to live MY best life and KEEP THE CELEBRATION GOING!!!!!!

#lupustaughtme To pay attention to what my body is saying to me. I should not ignore the little things. It has also taught me that I am the deciding factor in if I win or lose. Thank you Nate Williams @mrn867 - THE ONLY MALE WARRIOR WITH LUPUS WILLING TO PARTICIPATE! Thank you for lending your voice 💜✋🏾. . . . . #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #spoonielife #chronicillness #NaturallyLupie #LupieChick #LupusChick #lupuschick #lupusadvocate #POP #blackhealthmatters #selfiesforlupus #selfies4lupus #lupusAwarenessMonth #lhandsign #LupusStrong #lupusadvocate #lupusawarenessmonth #lupusfighter #lupussurvivor #fucklupus #knowlupus #runlupus
@blackhealthmatters ・・・ One of the early symptoms of lupus is a low-grade fever for no apparent reason. Because it may hover somewhere between 98.5˚F (36.9˚C) and 101˚F (38.3˚C), you might not think to see a doctor. People with lupus may experience this type of fever off and on.

#lupustaughtme “The doctors may say one thing, but God has the last say so. Its taught me how strong I truly am. To appreciate the little things, the activities of my limbs, being able to run my fingers through my scalp. Ive learned to say no, stand up for myself, enforce boundaries, rest when I need it, listen to my body, and most of all, love, embrace, and enjoy life. Its a beautiful journey. “ Thank you Chakeria 🦋💜✋🏾. . . . . #lupus #lupusawareness #lupuswarrior #spoonielife #chronicillness #NaturallyLupie #LupieChick #LupusChick #lupuschick #lupusadvocate #POP #blackhealthmatters #selfiesforlupus #selfies4lupus #lupusAwarenessMonth #lhandsign #LupusStrong #lupusadvocate #lupusawarenessmonth #lupusfighter #lupussurvivor #fucklupus #knowlupus #runlupus
@blackhealthmatters ・・・ About 90 percent of people with lupus experience some level of fatigue. An afternoon nap does the trick for some people but sleeping too much during the day can lead to insomnia at night. It may be difficult, but if you can remain active and stick to a daily routine, you may be able to keep your energy levels up. Speak to your doctor if you’re living with debilitating fatigue. Some causes of fatigue can be treated.
