⭐️ an adventure: an unusual and exciting or daring experience. ⭐️
what was your most recent adventure? who was it with? how did it make you feel? was it travel or just trying something new? cancer has been an adventure (that’s my thinking on a positive day!! 😉) but adventures can have mountains and desserts, oceans and plateau’s. it’s that ever moving roller coaster!! currently, i am about to embark on two new adventures; i am diving into the unknown and starting a new career as a post natal doula with my @mummababy_space and, i am packing for a family adventure to france next week, somewhere we have never been, doing things we don’t usually do. doing something new and pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones now and again can make us braver and stronger and adds texture and colour to our lives. it’s not always easy to embrace change and the unknown, i struggle daily with this, but i have to remind myself, if it doesn’t work out, it doesn’t matter. we tried. life is one big adventure, every day can teach us new things, good and bad. if we don’t explore and peel back the layers, we can’t grow and afterall, we live and we learn. cancer has taught me so much, not just how strong i can be but how much i want to explore, of myself and the world! it’s about putting one foot in front of the other and being brave #adventure #space #allpartofthejourney #doulatraining #selfcare #lifeaftercancer #aftercancerawareness #explore #cancer #survivor #weareallinthistogether #handtohold #courage #hope #strength #bebrave

🧟‍♀️the pattern of abuse means we revolve around the person who uses abuse. we are groomed to respond to attain their ‘like’ no matter how irrational it is. a bit like social media. both are unpredictable, not in our control and addictive! ••
•• 👩🏻‍🌾over time, our focus is so much on other/social media that we forget our own rhythms. we have a habit to attune to outside us as the reference point. this becomes our ‘normal’. we don’t follow our own deep felt intuition, instinct and fluctuations, and instead become ritualised inside the habit of being pleasing to other. we lose our identity and who we truly are... ••
•• 🧟‍♀️it is time to interrupt the pattern. thank the exhaustion, the confusion, the lack of desire and turn inward. be still. meditate. or just breathe deeply in and out and focus on your breath through one part of your body. the thing with trauma is that it is hard to be still with ease. it’s hard to be in your skin. so if being still or meditating is not where you’re at, draw where you are at. make a collage, paint it, write it... find symbols or images to represent the torment, the dark hole, the lost, the forgotten... this will unravel. you will get through this. ••
•• 🧙🏻‍♀️i am in my own calling to go inwards, in response to a few big and challenging years. i too feel the unknown, feel confused and lost... when i try and do things the way ‘society’ expects... then i take a step back and remember my inner being and seek guidance. sometimes it is through a breath or a thought to switch out of limiting way, other times it is after the release of a deep cry. whatever is needed. there is no right or wrong way. there is just your way. ••
•• 👩🏻‍🌾are you listening to your inner being?

Just wanted to do a quick video to let my friends & family know how today went & to say thank you to everyone for the support over the past 5 years...💛

going back to the teenage/children’s again today really put things into perspective & made me appreciate this good news even more💙

i won’t lie, i felt really guilty walking out with such great news. when i was walking past innocent little kids fighting the big c, but i will do my best to lead by example & maybe one day serve as an inspiration to those little champs🎗

man it’s been emotional & i’ve cried a few times today. been a long old road & i’ve lost 2 very significant heroes in my life along the way which makes this whole thing hit me with full force.❤️

i feel so much love & gratitude right now & i can’t thank all my friends & family enough for being legends along the way👫

fucking hell i’m so lucky & i’m so glad i’m here to live the life my dad always wanted me too - love ya dad💛🎗💙

ps yes i am crying again 🤣

Sun sets somewhere else even as it rises today. my brother’s 53rd birthday. the first ever i can’t call and say happy birthday. there were dolphins playing today. and fishermen. a sign perhaps? peace and love to you. the universe is you and you are the universe. #video #sunrise #sun #peace #peaceful #morning #goodmorning #beauty #beautiful #beautifulday #beach #river #live #liveauthentic #life #amazing #nofilter #river #florida #mylife #sky #sun #clouds #onedayatatime #grief #survivor

It's official everyone, i've applied to be on the 39th season of @officialsurvivor_cbs (which will be taping in mid-march of 2019 through the summer). @jeffprobst put a twitter video up last night imploring people to try out for the show and it inspired me to try again. i've been a die hard fan since its' inception and i'm hoping to become a part of history! #survivor about a year ago i applied in person, i'll never give up!

#throwbackthursday #sister magic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but if we can be real here, lions, it's been a less than magical week. (month?) recovery does not always feel like recovery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
healing sometimes looks and feels more painful today than it did six months ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
since returning from vacation earlier this summer, emily has experienced some extreme fatigue and more hard speech days than usual. (how we refer to the days when her expressive aphasia seems to prevent most of her thoughts from being communicated.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this is extremely frustrating. and isolating, even when surrounded by people. it's been accompanied by more grief about what her life used to be and look like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2.5 years since emily became a lion. she survived her "like it or not" life event of a hemorrhagic stroke, but some days it's a lot more "not" than "like it". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
we don't share this to complain. every lion has their struggles and challenges and grief. just trying to be real and a reminder that you aren't alone. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(family side note to our younger sister: hannah, we promise we didn't crop you out of this photo. you just didn't slow down much for photos in these days.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
