I used to suffer from being a huge critic of myself, judging myself, my actions, my results, my consistency, my moods, THEN I dialed in on my faith learned two things.
1. Always operate from a place of gratitude. Make that your main lens. 🙏🏽
2. It’s ok to look back & remind yourself how far you
Today I’m looking back to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti 🇭🇹
I am a 3x time cancer survivor(Hodgkins, Breast and Thyroid). After having a double mastectomy, I opted not to have reconstruction, and instead I had a tattoo put where my breasts used to be. My tattoo symbolizes a transformation, my metamorphosis. Like a butterfly I changed on the outside but remained the same on the inside. It is my badge of honour and strength, a piece of beautiful art that I wear with pride because it represents how I kicked cancer's ass and how breasts don't define who I am as a person or a woman. Much love to all the cancer warriors(here or no longer here) and their supporters, keep fighting the fight!! انا مش بس حاربت سرطان الثدي، لا كمان سرطان الغدد الليمفاوية،و الدرقية. بعد ما عملت استئصال الثديين، قررت اني مش هعيد بناء الثدي. عملت وشم مكان الاستئصال، الوشم ده يمثل التغير اللي حصللي، زي الفراشة بتتغير من بره لكن بتفضل زي ما هيا من جوه. الوشم ده هو مثال الشرف، القوة، قطعة من الفن الجميل، انا فخورة جدا بيه لانه يمثل ازاي اني هزمت السرطان شر هزيمه و قد ايه الثدي مش بيمثلني كامرأة. كل تحياتي لمحاربي السرطان الموجودين و اللي فارقونا و كل من يدعمهم. استمروا في محاربة السرطان!!

‘Hold onto hope’ 🌸🙏🌺 A few months ago I would have never believed what I achieved yesterday was possible!
I was diagnosed with CFS/ME after catching a virus which I just could not pick up from. After several attempts to carry on working I finally crashed! My CFS/ME consultant told me that I would need to come to terms with the fact that I wouldn’t be able to return to the job I was doing, which was a palliative care nurse in a local hospice and like so many of us I was too unwell at that time to work at all!
Coming to terms with the diagnosis in itself is huge, the addition of not being able to work and bring in money is another huge burden to carry!
As I am sure like many of you on days when I could manage to read I would spend time researching around recovery from CFS/ME! Initially I came across the Optimum Health Clinic in London who specialise in CFS/ME and then later discovering DrMyhills website and resources. I then began the small steps to making some recovery!
Yesterday was my first 5 hours in the workplace 👋 after almost a year!
My employers have been amazingly supportive and I was offered a redeployment post as a Senior Staff Nurse in the Living Well Centre which is comparable to an outpatient service. Just 15 hours a week ...5 hours at work and 5 hours working from home initially. Tiny steps to begin with and we all know it is a trial to see how I manage, but I do have hope 😊
I did my first 5 hours yesterday and yes it was very gentle with no great expectations but I feel sooooo happy that I made it! 🤗. Completely exhausted by the end of it and not great physically today but I did it 😁
Always hold onto hope 🌸🙏🌺 #chronicfatiguesyndrome#myalgicencephalomyelitis#healing#recovery#relaxation#nutrition#meditation#hope#wellness#optimumhealthclinic#drmyhill

2 Timothy 2:13 NLT
Today’s Fruit of the Spirit is Faithfulness 🐕
I have a dog named Bobby who is a King Charles Cavalier. He’s a legend, he is so loyal and well behaved. Whenever I’m walking around outside or in the house, unless he’s sleeping, he’ll follow me around the place because he just loves being around his family. Unfortunately, now that he is getting on in his age, he is now deaf and a bit slower to do things, but it amazes me how he still manages to find us and follow us around!
God is Faithful. In fact you could say that God is the definition of Faithfulness. And this is such a powerful and relatable verse because whenever we are unfaithful, God is Faithful.
Imagine if we could be like Dogs, like Bobby. What if we were so excited and keen to follow God that we did all that we could to follow Him all the time. Or, what if you were so faithful to your friends that you made sure that you always kept your word! These are all things to strive for!
With God’s help, we can develop our Fruit of Faithfulness. When He is caring for your tree, He doesn’t care for it for a bit, then just leave it to fend for itself. He sticks by it, making sure that it is safe, guiding it and teaching it on where it should grow. And as the Lord does this for us, we learn from Him what it means to be Faithful, and in turn, begin to grow that Fruit through the help of the Holy Spirit!
It is my prayer that we will continue to dig into God’s Word, learning from Him and His Son, as well as listening to the Guidance of the Holy Spirit. For then we can start and continue to grow our Fruit of the Spirit, Faithfulness!

I am in the midst of a serious spiritual awakening. I didn’t believe in “energy” or any of that stuff until the about 6 months ago. I’ve actually been very quiet about it. At first I felt crazy but the more I started to allow in, the more has come to me.
It’s as if I know things. All the dreams I have, the random visions, the little hits I get to call people all make sense now. I had to surrender and accept. •
God has answered prayers I believed to be impossible. It’s still hard for me to wrap my head around. All I know is I have to trust. trust myself, trust god; trust all I need is already here. YES I slip up and get sucked into a vortex of worry but ultimately I know I have others to lean on to remind me of what truly matters. •
Life isn’t meant to be lived alone. A Like minded community is essential to living a purpose driven life. There is a reason why Isolation is considered a self sabotaging behavior. Surround yourself with love, BE love. •
Unless you’ve experienced it yourself it probably sounds crazy but it is so real. Faith is my number one value and I didn’t realize I wasn’t truly fully surrendering to it until I was in California. The more you believe; the more you receive. •
