🦋 Fall seven times, Stand up eight 🦋

After reading this post you’ll understand why I use a 🦋 butterfly 🦋 emoji everywhere on my blog. Let me start from the beginning…

Every year coming up to this date (October 7th), when I suffered a brain stem stroke (2015), I would feel uneasy and upset😔! Very natural, giving the awful circumstances. An anniversary, but not a happy one, nor a one to celebrate 😩🤦🏻‍♀️. 2 years ago, I decided to make it different, a much nicer memory to mark this day, and overall change the energy around it. I’ve been thinking of getting a tattoo for months beforehand, but couldn’t decide on one. Now I had an idea for a meaningful one. “Fall seven times, stand up eight” is a very relatable quote for us all, especially for me on my journey. I wanted to also add a butterfly, because I believe that my journey is like the one of a butterfly…from a worm in a cocoon into a beautiful creature that has wings-that represent freedom-independence for me. I’m comparing the two, because being in a wheelchair after a life changing event is like being a worm stuck in cocoon 🐛. The transformation needs time and patience, and in the process you evolve and change, just like a worm becomes a butterfly 🦋. The wings and ability to then fly, for me represents freedom, just like being independent again 👣, which is my goal 💪🤗.

👈 I designed the butterfly to have a survivor’s ribbon 🎀 instead of a middle body, when you look closely you will be able to see a survivor’s ribbon with wings 👈

I wanted a tattoo that meant something to me, and now I have. When I look at it, each time I can see positivity, motivation, strength, brighter future, hope, transformation, but most of all to never ever stop or give up! #NeverGiveUp

From 2018, I try to stay smiling on my stroke anniversary, and see it as a positive despite all the hurdles. I celebrate with my family, always having some Prosecco/Champagne 🍾🥂🥳. #Strength #PositiveVibesOnly 💪☺️!

🚨 NEWS 🚨

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, the diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.

For the last few weeks I was thinking of enrolling for a short nutrition course. I’ve been researching myself, as well as getting extra help from my vocational facilitator via the Step Ahead Program for Vocational Rehabilitation, through Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Ireland. Thank you Miss Laura💜 (You know who you are)! 🌻
I read about this College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM), watched a video of their Open Day-September 2020, and guess what?! I enrolled myself for a 3 year long Diploma Course (mostly studied Online with clinical hours in year 2 & 3) in Naturopathic Nutrition 🙌🥑🥦🍏🥝🍋🥬🧄🥕. An idea of a short course brought me onto this path, so I guess I’ll be a college student again?! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤗🤓👩🏻‍🎓📚. Under completely different circumstances than the last time 🤷🏻‍♀️, but hey! No excuses nor feeling sorry for myself #ChoosePositivity

I guess the month of my stroke anniversary became a month of starting something new? October-The Month of New Chapters? 🤔📖 Love it! 🤗🥰 This journey has led me to become more spiritual, and to find my real interests. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be who I am today, or do what I do without the whole process 🦋… How many of you can honestly say that you found your true passion in life? That you do what makes you happy each day? That you’re excited to get up every morning to go to work/college? or just to experience a new day? I call them “the lucky ones” 😇🙏. I know well that it’s only a very small percentage of people, and I’m on my way there…☺️ I really believe, now more than ever that everything happens for a reason…👇

🦋 Someday everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason, for experience, or for a lesson. Nothing is ever wasted, because the soul is always getting insight…🦋


Someone very important to me, said this a few days ago, when I told them the news about enrolling: “When someone gets a diagnosis of an awful disease, they panic and start living their life around it/main worry, like 95% diagnosis and only 5% life…when it should be other way around”. It’s sad but true 🥺, understandable too. I could really resonate with those words 💯. However the only person in control is YOU🤏🏻! That’s also why I decided to go for it, go hard or go home! Isn’t that what they say? 👊💪 While in active rehabilitation, I’m focusing on also living my life, here and now (mindfully🧘🏻‍♀️). I’ll walk myself 👣 to collect that diploma in 2023 on my graduation day👩🏻‍🎓, and open my own clinic then! #Goals

🦋 Purpose is the reason you journey. Passion is the fire that lights your way 🦋
