“Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you”💪🏼 • • • I was born at 26 weeks old. I weighed 2 lbs, 2 ounces and I was 9 inches long. Fun fact. ✨ • • • To everyone who commented or private messaged me about my last post... THANK YOU! It really means a lot to me. It took A LOT for me to post it.. but that’s one step to getting over my biggest fear right?! I need to keep reminding myself that my scars are beautiful, they’re the reason I am who I am today, they’re what make me unique. After reading all the comments and private messages, I was in tears because I wasn’t expecting all the love and support from everyone! So THANK YOU so much! 💜😭 #adoptionmatters #adoption #loveadoption #isupportadoption #loveyourself #beyourself #scarsarebeautiful #scarstellstories #blessedtobealive #sickbaby

The cashier at Trader Joes and I bonded over our thyroidectomy scars this morning. We had a great, albeit short, conversation about our experiences. It always amazes me how easy it is to connect with people when we're open to sharing. No shame in my scar game. • Because we all have scars. Some are more obvious, some are healing, and some can't be seen. Scars tell the stories of where we’ve been. There's comfort in knowing that we all have them and we're in this together. ❤️ • I’d love to know... What are some of your scars? It’d be awesome to see some connections in the comments!

HER STORY - Nightmares plagued her life; they were lengthy, elaborate dreams with imagery that evoked fear, anxiety or sadness. At times, she would wake up to avoid the perceived danger. Her nightmares were vivid upon waking leading to difficulties returning to sleep causing daytime distress. Life was affected by them resulting in feelings of extreme fear, horror, distress, and anxiety. She repeatedly woke during the night recalling the details of frighteningbdreams that centered around threats to survival, security or physical harm. She was a young wife and mom who had aspirations of achieving great things. She was ambitious, smart, creative and enthusiastic in all of her endeavours, but her nightmares were crippling her from reaching these goals and pursuits. . . . What was her fate? A life if unfulfilled goals and aspirations? Fortunately, she was led through the Memory Resolution Technique (TMRT) where essential oils were used to bring a calming effect soothing the emotions as the Memory of her nightmares were processing. She found the experience serene even as she was processing the painful memories. Her memory was brought into her consciousness and she re-processed the memories resulting in her letting go of the upsetting image. The trigger of these nightmares was discovered and resolved from harming her emotionally any longer. She was then able to anchor a new, positive and strong image. Her nightmares are gone. She now has a profound change in her self-image and a renewed feeling of being able to fearlessly tackle her pursuits with confidence. . . . Tell me about your dreams. . . . . . #dreams #nightmares #sleeplessnights

"JUST AS I AM" This song expresses how God accepts us for who we are when we come to Him. Although we are broken, we can come to God to be mended. Although we are wounded, we can come to God to be healed. We are desperate, but God can rescue us. We are empty, but God can fill us. God does not want to just leave us as we are, but He desires for us to allow Him to change and grow us into revitalized women of God. BROKEN IS WHAT OEOPLE ARE. BEAUTIFUL IS WHAT GOD MAKES US. . . . What is your need that only God can meet? . . . . . #broken #wounded #desperate

Powering through... • Yesterday I went for a routine MOT on my heart, they did it especially because I’m pregnant but as a rule I have them every three years anyway and have done since I was 5 following two repairs on a hole in my heart. • I went with no expectations, as I have before, nothing ever changes, I’ve had a ‘moderate’ leaky heart valve forever. Well not this time. After an ECG, blood pressure check and an Echo, I was greeted by 5 doctors/consultants with various titles too long to remember all to tell me this ‘moderate’ leak was now classed as a ‘serious’ leak! • Now this could be heightened by my pregnancy - all the extra blood and pressure of pumping this around the body. • What this means going forward is too early to tell, I need another Echo in 6weeks and one after our baby arrives to check for any further changes. • What I do know is I have to give birth at LGI rather than Calderdale (not a problem with that one - it’s better to be safe than sorry) and they may want to bring him early at 38weeks. • The possibility of having open heart surgery again has started to sink in but fingers crossed won’t be necessary. • In the mean time I’m powering though, after all I have a job to do, I’m a Mum and nothings going to get in my way... • • • • #thisisme #health #wellbeing #heartsurgery #scarstellstories #poweringthrough #heart #justamum #instagood #instamood #livinglife #mumlife #honesty #mylife #heartdisease #motherhood #hospital #changes #pregnancy #pregnant #30weeks #strength #childhood #blog #lifestyle

In Matthew 14:27, the disciples were in the midst of a storm. Jesus told them to "BE OF GOOD CHEER". In John 16:33, Jesus said, "These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but BE OF GOOD CHEER; I have overcome the world." . . . "Joyfulness is based mainly on knowing God. Happiness is manly based on serving and obeying God. CHEERFULNESS seems to be founded on trusting God - trusting God in the storms of life!!" - Dr. John Bishop . . . What is your current storm? Are you trusting God in the storm? BE OF GOOD CHEER!! . . . . . #beofgoodcheer #cheerful #midstofastorm

“They say Icarus was a fool for flying too close to the sun. I say it's only because of him we know how close we can get. I love the fall of those brave enough to fail for the right reasons. . . . Fuck the easy glory of mere excellence. The only legacy I will accept is to know that however far I got — it was as far as I was capable of going. I want to drown in my own sweat knowing there was nothing left. — Jared Singer & Anthony Ragle ~ It’s just not in me to give in & neither should you. #magichands #bmmassage #fighterspirit #driven #somedaysarehard #somedaysareeasy #mercuryretrograde #aries #heavyshit #keeppushingforward #scarstellstories
