Memories as Motivation


This weekend, I went to the Taylor Swift concert with 7 of my girlfriends. It was such an amazing time– first because her show was SO good and secondly because I got to spend quality time with people that mean a lot to me. I had been looking forward to this day for almost 7 months as we purchased the tickets in December! So I felt a little sad yesterday that it’s “ already”over! That always seems to happen after big events, we look forward to them for so long that it feels like a let down once it’s in the past. But I shouldn’t view it as a let down, I should view it as a blessing. I was so lucky that I got to see an artist I love live, that I got to dance under the stars and hold hands and sing out loud with my best friends.

So today I remind you, as I’m reminding myself, that it’s important to try to look back at good times and not think “so sad it’s over” but rather “I’m so grateful that it happened.” Grateful that it happened and determined to make more memories like that a reality. Dream BIG and push HARD to make the memories you want in life.

Lots of love & light,

  1. Jess, so glad you had the opportunity to spend quality time with friends doing something you love.! I am facing a few challenges right now, and your attitude is such an inspiration. You are a blessing to all who know you.

  2. Hi Jessie I was waiting for your inspiration post today. I went in to get my 20 year old arm port out and a new chest one in. Hopefully this one will be my last one in this lifetime. As I was being prepared for surgery I thought of all my friends and family who have gotten ports and felt like we have a commonality that is special. We are blessed that medical science keeps advancing and that our Stinson bodies can accept the ports and medical advancements. I really believe our children will saved from ports and such because due to our journeys there will be cures. Thanks for your inspiration and always dream because they do come true. Love and hugs little cousin ! Xoxoxo

    • I hope this is the last one too and I hope that everything went well with the surgery. We are blessed with all the medical advances, let’s just hope we can help to raise funds to continue the growth! Lots of love to you!
