Healing Rockstar.

I am healing here.

I know because I feel it and see it…and I looked it up:

Healing(noun) the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again. 

The past few months have gone so fast.  When I think back to starting back at this blog in the Spring and the pain and frustration I was in and where I am now, it is nothing short of a miracle.

I am thriving.

I am happy.

I am living in a life and body I love.

That is healing.

Although I have written about my healing several times in this blog, its important to keep writing about it and recognizing the healing that is happening every day as well as reflecting on the healing that has already happened.

A snapshot of healing to recognize today:

I may have alluded to it a little in the past, but today I own it:

I rocked healing in the hospital and post surgery.

For those of you who have ever had a major surgery, you know you get drains (i.e.: torture on earth) to drain your surgery site post surgery.  I had 4 drains coming out of surgery – all, but one were taken out in a week and a half for me.  My surgeon could not even believe how well I had done and how quickly I had them removed.  I prepared, I listened to my body and I did a lot of physical and mental prep for this to go so well.  Example 1 of: Healing Rockstar.

I am in the Pool!  3 months post surgery I am in the Pool, walking and doing arm exercises AND out of my abdominal binder!  This is music to my ears (and body….and running shoes – that are waiting patiently).  I have been wearing a binder around  my belly since surgery and in 3 months, I have built up my strength, taken it off and moved to Pool to exercise which feels liberating and freeing and empowered.  I have been patient and persistent and listed to my body = Example 2 of: Healing Rockstar

My scar tissue is minimal in my belly, actually, I can’t really feel much at all.  I have an amazing PT.  Did you read that in my blog before?  I know you have.  I have a gift for finding the most brilliant, perfect healthcare practitioners for me and I WILL NOT STOP until I find them.  When I do – enter Healing Rockstar.  The right team changes everything.  Secili is my PT and I searched high and low to find her – with a little prayer and patience and FAITH – she entered my life (my sister can be reference for this).  She is positive and innovative and LISTENS (note: health practitioners that listen are available and you CAN find them).  Secili has been doing manual manipulation and dry needling to help manage my scar tissue and give me greater mobility – with both I am moving very well and learning (like a baby) how to engage my left side all over again.  Most importantly she listens to me, hears me and meets me where I am EACH session.  Every time I engage my life lower back, belly, glutes when doing squats and simple leg-lifts = patient, determined, healing rockstar.

I am STILL crying like a baby.  (Someone please send Steve Kleenex boxes – poor man is always ready and awesome in dealing with this).  I think this is so important in my HEALING ROCKSTAR journey.  I cry.  I get frustrated or happy or just hormonal because my body is still rebalancing and I cry.  I cry out of gratitude or cry just because some days I don’t know where it comes from but I let it come because feeling the feelings is healing.  I also laugh and love and give.  I am feeling my feelings = BIG Example of Healing Rockstar.

I’m grateful for healing.

I am grateful for you being on this journey with me.

I am blessed.

(All examples, again, of Healing Rockstar).

How are you healing today?

In love and healing,
