Kisses for Kiran!
She’s a lifelong friend and our parents are best friends. We grew up playing tennis together so bonded on tour in many random different countries. 
Also from Trinidad, Kiran has now found herself up in the States as well facing the healthcare system as her Mum (as I said before, my Mum’s best friend) battles a cancerous brain tumor. 
Can you amazing people send her some positive vibes, lots of sunshine, a whole lotta love, and prayers galore?! 
Y’all are the best :) This blog has blessed me in so many ways. 
Thank you! THANK YOU! Thank you!!!!!!! 
Have a happy and healthy day, Danni xx

Exactly 3 years to the day since the accident that triggered my CRPS/RSD. Many more than 3 people to thank for empowering me on this journey through love, hope, positivity, and faith. Couldn’t have gotten here without y’all. xxx

Inspire Yourself - One Lazy Activity at a Time… 
Ticket officially booked to return to Trinidad for mid-April! Literally could not be more excited! 
I find that when having a tough time or rough go at things, it helps in such a huge way to constantly keep coming up with stuff to look forward to. Keep a diary and write down what’s coming up! Before you know it, you’ll find that you’ve turned that frown upside down.
Now, obviously a vacation to Trinidad isn’t a realistic thing that I can look forward to monthly. But, I can definitely look forward to watching my favorite show ‘Survivor’ every Wednesday! Boom… it goes in the diary! Have you ordered something online that’s due to arrive on a certain date? Write that in there, too!
See what I mean? Before too long, you’ll have an amazing booklet filled with positive achievements and memories that made you very happy indeed. Now what could be better inspiration than that? 
- Lots of love! Happy Weekend! Danielle xx

FIFTY SHADES OF YOU:
As we approach Valentine’s Day, take some time to remember that YOU are ultimately always number one. So, put yourself 1st! Love yourself and just let it be. 
Take a break inspired by the above picture. You deserve it! If anyone could use a little time, it’s you. We could probably all slow down a bit.
I understand that you’re kind - a natural-born giver, perhaps a caregiver. But, if you’re exhausted and worn out, in what way does this serve anyone? Take a break! Remember YOURSELF! Return grounded and centered. Love yourself and the love for others will double-up. You’ll see! 
Hope that you’re well! Lots of love - Danielle xx

You are going to be in horrific pain anyways. Whether you are lying in bed, laying in a bathtub, wearing no clothes, wearing uncomfortable clothes, surrounded by no one, or surrounded by a thousand people - you are going to be in horrific pain anyways. DON’T LET RSD CONTROL YOUR LIFE BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID OF THE PAIN. The pain will come and go either way. It might get worse while you are doing something fun and exciting, but it might get worse while you are laying in bed. Wouldn’t you rather being doing something fun and exciting?

Words put perfectly by my fellow fabulous CRPS/RSD fighter, Linda, of the blog ‘Let’s Be Chronically Positive

The Boys are Back in Town :) xx
As I said, I’m back from Chicago & now in California, which means:
A nice break from treatment.
Josh!
My puppies!
Constant Kodak moments. 
LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD!!!
No doubt about it. And no doubt about the fact that I definitely appreciate these moments more because of what I’ve been through - which I always find such a shame. I wish it hadn’t taken so much for me to realize just how amazing I have it, no matter the fact that life will always have obstacles or little bumps in the road.
Please take just a second to read - or re-read, as I often do - this past post (click here to reach it). You might just some gain well-needed perspective. 
Hope that you’re all well. Love as always. Prayers and good vibes your way. 
Be Well,

Also… y’all deserve a proper explanation as to where I’ve been over the past (yikes…!) 8 weeks.

Lots of love. Be well.
