  • "If you're going to have to go through chemo today, my message for you is to hang in there, is a day less! You can go through today, and it'll literally be a day you can cross of the long path that is the treatment. And you can do it, trust me. Get some music, a good book, and a blanket. Try and distract yourself, and when you realise, it'll be over. That's what I used to do. I also had lots of fruity caramels, but that might not work for you. We all know how weird the chemo cravings are! Anyway, today I wish you strength, and I am sending all my support over to you. Lots of love, a fellow patient." ❤️⠀

  • ✅ TRY GOAT YOGA:  I met a group of trusting friends at @goodsandgoatsmarket for a hilarious yoga class, where our classmates were baby goats!  Their instinct for wanting to jump on top of things made for interesting down dogs and chaturangas!  Try it! 🐐🧘🏻‍♀️

  • I’m a survivor of abuse: sexual, physical & emotional. My Dad was the perpetrator of the sexual & physical abuse. 
Then, at 13 years old, I was raped by a 20 year old man. I blamed myself for this for many years. I thought I attracted the energy of predators. I thought I was a slag! My experience of childhood led me into a deep spiral of depression & rebellion which entailed hanging out with the wrong crowd, drinking alcohol, shoplifting, self-harm, suicide attempts, eating disorders & sexual promiscuity. I was angry & I felt very, very alone. I HATED myself. 
Needless to say during my teens and early 20’s my future was looking bleak!
My mother was very cold, disconnected & emotionally detached. Her choice to stay in a relationship with my Dad, meant that after he finished his time in prison, he came back into my home. My Mum completely isolated herself from her role as a parent & she always made choices that served her needs, not mine as her child. Our relationship completely fell apart.
It wasn’t easy growing up in an abusive home & my teens were a total mess, but eventually I found new ways to cope and deal with the circumstances I was born into. I eventually realised that I couldn’t change my past, but I could work on my life each day.
The painful experiences of growing up in an abusive home will never be erased. At one point in my life, I wished that I could erase the memories & myself! However, I couldn’t be more grateful that I had the opportunity to experience this way of life. I allowed my pain to teach me something rather than blame someone or something for it happening to me. I realised that regardless of what has been done to you, it’s up to you to decide what to do with it. I have found gifts in my traumatic experience of abuse. It has taught me how to be humble, compassionate, and most of all empathetic to other people. If anything, I have learned more on how to truly connect with the human species. Pain can have a strong transformative power and way of leading people in the right directions. It definitely has for me. 
PLEASE allow your pain to be your compass to find the light at the end of the tunnel. ❤️

  • During my mastectomy recovery, I found it helpful  to write down my emotions and channel them into sketches. It is so easy for some other people to think of the bright side: you are lucky to have time off, time to catch up on TV shows and books, time to sleep in. What they ignore is all the time alone with your own emotions, dealing with a terrifying diagnosis and a future that looks bleak. I would rather have been stressed out at work and behind on my hobbies than at home struggling to admit that I had been diagnosed with breast cancer and just had a part of my body amputated.

  • People think of flash backs as a very particular thing, a dramatic re living of trauma. And they can be a sudden and spontaneous recapitulation which frightens many people. 
But much of our unresolved trauma lives in us, in our tissues and drives our adrenaline and reactions our emotional places of shut down or high alarm, our anger and our fear. 
Flashbacks are happening to the person who has experienced trauma more often this way. Subtly, over and over we behave as if we are still living in the place of our trauma and someone will harm or betray us. Our judgements and fears all formed around a traumatic event. And this is how abuse and violence or loss and injury can shape us. 
If we can experience these flash backs with the conscious awareness that we are actually living more than one time and experience at once it begins a healing process. When we become aware where we are responding to our lover or friend out of anger or distrust because we are living in the unconscious pain of our trauma we can begin to right the timeline of our bodies and emotions and live more here, now. 
We don’t try to stop it, we don’t try to make it better or go away or feel shame. It’s just our body and emotions at their most raw and honest saying “I’ve been living back there.“ And when we can accept that, we realize it isn’t a person or a situation that causes the flashback but what happened to us that lives inside us active still. A flashback is the body trying to right itself. 
When we can hold the reality that we are experiencing two body time frames at once we can say “ Hey baby, that was hard and hurt and they were wrong to do that to you. That was scary, terrifying. That’s real and I love you and you are safe right now.” Flash backs are an opportunity to re align our body with what is happening now by accepting that our body is fractioned by things that scared and harmed us and not trying to make that processing stop  but loving it through the process in a safe and present way.
