Yesterday a dear friend made a comment "it's been two years, you're gonna have to stop mentioning it soon". Then laughed and I quickly reminded her it's been 2.5 years since my #brain #surgery & I still struggle daily with #invisibledisabilities to just appear "normal" and keep up. I still spend at least 1 day a week on machines for infusions. I still take naps in my car because I don't have enough brain power to drive at times. I still get confused at times in board meetings when more than one person starts to speak. I still have #panicattacks from just daily activities like walking down a flight of stairs or driving over a bridge, things I never experienced before my surgery. I still get dizzy out of nowhere and never know when it is coming or for how long. I still write words backwards and mispronounce things, which often causes me to limit my vocabulary as I work on my speech. Oh so excuse me as I remind people daily of those impacted in our unbothered society by invisible disabilities. - Ms. V #mayisbraintumorawarenessmonth #mayisbraincancerawarenessmonth #recovery #rehabilitation #mentalhealth #massincarceration #reentry #reentrycoach #servingmypurpose #socialjusticeactivist #communityorganizer #disabled #nyulangone #visionaryv #bksamirah #dontpolicemyspeech #minister #reikipractitioner #wellness #lifecoach #wellnesscoach

Words cannot explain how incredibly inspired I am by these amazing youth entrepreneurs of @youthinbusiness @jubileearts1 It is crazy to think that when this first started we had a goal of making $500 through a Cooperative economics model. And just a few years these youth owners have built 13 and have earned 12K up to this date. All in which they share with one another! These youth are adding to the positive Narrative of our great City! #hibredmotivation #baltimoreentrepreneurs #baltimoreyouth #motivationalquotes #marylandsmallbusiness #workforcedevelopment #mybaltimore #blackbusiness #bmore #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #entrepreneur #smallbusiness #lifechange  #transformation #baltimorecity #madeinbaltimore #blackowned #baltimoremaryland #charmcity #baltimore #reentry #reentrycoach​ #jeweldropper #motivation #changeagents #leadership #createopportunitiesnotexcuses
