HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

 truly had happy Halloween and I slowed down and soaked in the good things and lived in the moment with true passion with my favorite people!


My Lilly love was the most adorable monster!


In the morning I went with one of my favorite aunts my Aunt Mary to my cousin Kerry's sons Tommy's preschool Halloween parade and Tommy made the most adorable Hulk!! Then Mary took me to Dunkins and we brought munchkins and coffee to  her house and we spent time with Kerry and  kids John and baby Kelly!







In the afternoon I went with one of my other favorite aunts, my Auntie Carol to  my cousin James and Katie's house to see their kids and their babies Francesca, James, and Genevieve in their Halloween costumes and they looked absolutely adorable!

                                                                       

                                                                       
















Then we went to Carols house and I went trick or  treating with my cousins Marc,  Ang, Daniel, and and their babies Myles, Addy, and Zachary and I had a blast!







Then we went back to Carol's for dinner with my family and we passed out candy to trick or treaters!

I truly had the time of my life and hope that you had a happy Halloween!


As always thanks for reading.

No more never alone

I'm going to share some real and hard feelings that have been on my mind and heart for over a year now. The only way for me to get my true and hard feelings out is to write and I considered not posting this post but I am going to for awareness and I am not naming names I am just genuinely and honestly expressing myself. 

When I was first diagnosed and I wrote my first few blog posts I received amazing feedback from every one and even people who I haven't spoken to in years sent me messages and texts that I was inspiring and that I was in their thoughts and prayers and that they would always be there through it if I needed anything. I felt loved encouraged  and supported!! I also felt never truly alone and as if I could fight my fight because I truly had a tribe of fighters behind me!

 As my HD has progressed and everything is actually hard for everyone else it feels like they have chosen to distance themselves from me and never realizing how hard my fight is it feels like hey have distance  them selves away and it only makes it harder for me. I have not received hardly any of those encouraging texts in over a year

Instead of feeling inferior and never alone I feel heart broken, hurt, and let down by people  who  mean the world to me and that I love. 

It makes me appreciate those of you who keep me crazy busy and who don't see me because they have to but because they truly enjoy my company and those of you who text me encouraging messages!

I do appreciate all of you who supported me by buying my memoir!!

I do understand that HD is a hard and  complex disease and If it's your first time witnessing it progre on some one who you love can bring up many fears and emotions that are hard to deal with. I know that every one is not sure what to do or anything that they can to to help. I'm writing this post to remind you and tell you that if you make this time out of your busy schedule that would meet the world to me but if it's too hard for you to see me then all I'm asking for is a simple text asking me how I am hanging in and a reminder that you love me and support me.

I'm praying that no one is offended by my post because It's at no one just a general  realizations!

Follow Your Dreams




I Hi readers,

    Today I am going to inspire, empower, and motivate you to follow your dreams!

     I have always always always had a teacher's heart and dreamed of being a teacher. Before  I was diagnosed with HD, my dream was always to be a classroom teacher. I majored  in Elementary Education at KU and fell hard in love with learning about teaching.  I loved every  minute of student teaching! After I graduated because of my HD, I moved back home to  Boston from Kansas, and got a job working with  students with Autism. To say that I absolutely  loved my job was an understatement, I was passionate about teaching, my students. and Autism. They taught me more than I could have ever taught them, and my verbal students would tell me they missed me and my nonverbal students faces lit up when they saw me, telling me that they missed me! After nine perfect month,  I got to the point where my HD  issues and their Autism issues were too much together and I sadly had to quit.

  I miss my classroom teacher job and students everyday but since I was diagnosed with HD, I have learned that time is a precious gift, and to slow down and live in the moment, embrace my differences and imperfections and be my one true self, to radiate happiness, live fearlessly, stay in the light, spread love, live my purpose and dream, and to truly live with passion! My dreams and purposes have changed a little since  I was diagnosed with HD, I will always have my teacher's heart but now my dreams have changed from being a classroom teacher to teaching people who feel fearful, anxious, sad, lonely, frustrated, and angry  with situations in their lives to live with passion and feel as if they can conquer anything that comes their way! I also teach others about HD by sharing my heart and story about by being an advocate!

 What are your dreams and purposes? I am inspiring and empowering you to pursue and follow your dreams no matter what the circumstances are or how many obstacles you need to overcome!

          Your currently anxious, fearful, sad and, depressed and you would love to live with passion by being fearless, radiating happiness, living in the moment, being your one true self, and truly loving your life! You are a person who needs inspiration, motivation, empowerment ,and encouragement who dreams of changing the outlook on your life without negative emotions and feelings!

Ready to change your outlook on life but are stuck with hard and negative emotions and feelings? Imagine being able to change your outlook on life without  having hard and negative feelings and emotions!

Create a new outlook life on life now. Say goodbye to negative and hard feelings and emotions. The next step  towards creating a new outlook on life is by enrolling in my Living With Passion E C
ourse or  sign up for my Living With Passion Email Consult 

It's time to take  the time to better yourself so you can be an  even better family member and friend by living with passion!

I hope that I have empowered and inspired you to follow your dreams, passions, and purposes!!p

Thanks for reading as I love  nothing more than sharing my heart, empowering and inspiring you,

My blog has changed my life for the better!


   My little blog has been very life - changing for me. When I shared my first blog post Our Story Matters I was really scared and anxious about what people would think, when knowing that I had Huntington's Disease, but despite my fears I was fearless and posted my first blog post anyways. The responses that I received were absolutely amazing and encouraging to keep sharing my HD journey.

     Before I had started my blog, I felt self conscious about my differences but with  sharing my story with the world, I quickly learned to embrace my imperfections and that ever body is different,

  I was inspired to write a memoir and have it self published in paperback, and kindle create an e course , a newsletter, and a creative business all because of the love, support, and encouragement that my blog has received.

   Today, I listed  watercolor paintings and mixed media paintings for sale on Wix. You can view and  purchase them here !!


      I want to take time to thank YOU, MY READERS, ENCOURAGERS, SUPPORTERS, AND MY INSPIRATION because my little blog would not have been life altering if it was not for YOU!!
I an ever grateful for your love and support that started out as my small Living With Passion blog,  that now has many ventures.
 
  This blog is now my safe haven to write and get all my feelings and emotions out in  the only form that I know how to. I love nothing more than sharing my heart so thanks for always reading!

Living With Passion E-Course

I am currently in the process of creating a Living With Passion E-Course and I am loving every minute of my teacher role because teaching is what makes me feel happy and truly come alive!!

Here is a sneak peek at my Introduction Lesson and an overview of the course:

   In this course you will learn about how to truly live with passion, being one true self, living in the moment, embrace your differences and imperfections, staying in the light even when it's easier to stay in the dark, living positive and truly love yourself and your life, and how to be brave, fearless, and to radiate happines, even when your going through hard times in your life!

    I am a 25 year old who was showing signs at 21, officially diagnosed at 23 with a genetic neurological degenerative disease called Huntingtons Disease. The average onset of is 35-55 years old but since I was showing signs at 21, I have Juevenile Huntingtons Disease. When I was first diagnosed I felt like the elephant in the room, and I felt self conscious about my movements and off balance but with the inspiration from my sister, I decided to share my HD journey with the world and I started a blog. Once I came out and said this is me and here is what I have,the responses that I received were utterly amazing and I realized that people were inspired by my imperfections so I quickly began to embrace them! In the summer of 2015, i wrote a memoir about the ups and downs of my journey which I titled," Living With Passion" after my blog name.

    As of now there is no cure or treatment but I keep my hope and faith alive that there will be one soon. I have always believed that everything happens for a reason and I believe my reason for suffering from a hard disease was for me to learn how to truly live with passion, about being my one true self, living in the moment, embracing my differences remain and imperfections, staying in the light even when it's easier to stay in the dark, living positive and to truly love myself and my life, and how to be brave, fearless, and to radiate happines and to inspire and teach others how to in their lives.

   I have had a teachers heart and soul for as long as I can remember. Being a teacher and watching kids grow and learn was all I have known and wanted to do. I studied Elementary Education and got my degree from the University of Kansas and I loved every minute of learning about teaching. After I graduated, I got a job at a school for students on the Autism a Spectrum and to say that I absolutely loved it an understatement because they had amazing intentions, are sweet, and I learned more from them than they did from me. It was hard and exhausting but I always had a moment every day were I realized just how much I truly loved my job and my students lit up my face, made me smile and happy! After nine beautiful months of teaching, I got to the point where my HD issues and there issues were too much combined and I made the hard choice to stop teaching. I miss my students every day but nothing will ever take away my teacher heart and soul. 

     Even though I am no longer teaching in an actual classroom, I am still teaching and inspiring others how to live with passion. I am so happy and excited that you want to learn more about becoming and embracing your one true self, being fearless, radiating happiness and how to truly live in each moment with passion!I hope that you can are inspired, encouraged, motivated, and that you learn a lot from my Living With Passion E-Course!

My goal is to have it completed in a few weeks and I will blog about it! You will be able to purchase it via course craft for $25 and when it's ready I will post the link! As I said before I am enjoying the process and I am happy and excited about creating  my newest Living With passion venture!!


Thanks in advance for your support and love,

Livingwithpassion Mixed Media

The winter when I was diagnosed with HD,   I was searching for something to do with my time, and I had always enjoyed painting and crafts, so I took Kelly Rae Roberts mixed media mantras online course, as a way in her words to, "Let  art out and love in." The painting class was amazing for me not only because it taugh me incredible painting skills but that it taught me a lot more about my self at a time when I really needed to learn who I am, and what I stand for. I can't say enough  great things about Kelly Rae Roberts and all that her e course did for me. I enjoyed letting art out and love in with mixed media on my canvas!!


I completed three canvases in the course and two on my own and have decided to create a Facebook page  named Livingwithpassion Mixed  Media because   I deeply ,miss letting art out and letting love in.
I have listed my five original mixed media canvases for $10 and  all the others I  create will be $10.  I also have listed a custom order that will be $15 and you can choose your color  scheme and your own mantra for your canvas.


Here is my Facebook page link where you can purchase and view my canvases: 
www.facebook.com/livingwithPassionmixedmedia 

Here are my  canvases to view more detailed photos and to purchase please go to and like my Facebook page!! 



I am thanking you in advance for your support in my newest Living with Passion venture. I have been blown away from the responses to my  blog and my  memoir and I know that I will also be blown away by the love and support of my new adventure!!

Thank you for the good fight with me because I can't do it alone,
Alexandra
