I was just thinking this morning:
.
.
‘Mom, how are you up there? I wish we could have a heart to heart right now. Another Christmas is here and 19 Christmases have passed since we got to celebrate together. Do you know how much I miss you? Do you hear me say ‘I love you’ everyday? And thank you? Thank you for every Christmas memory I do have of you. You made my childhood and teenage years magic. You showed me the richest love. Anyways, I type this for myself in hopes that you know.’
.
.
The holidays are here. This is a beautiful time of year for most people (including myself...I simply love it). BUT, this is also a time of missing the people we have lost. We speak to them from afar.
.
.
Tell the people in your life you love them. Hold them close and cherish those sweet moments ❤️

That cliché question. If you found out you only had six months to live would you change anything about your current life? I’m not saying that I have been told how long I have to live, and if anything I’m hopeful that it’s for many years to come. But the thought does cross my mind. When I was first diagnosed I remember telling my mom that I had no regrets. My past has made me the person I am today. I have lived in many countries, met many wonderful people, traveled the world, and I have felt love in many different ways. Pre diagnosis I was always planning. I’m a dreamer at heart. I wanted to travel the world, work at amazing schools, start a family and make a difference in the lives of others. Post diagnosis some of these dreams seem less important while some have been taken away from me. No matter what my circumstances are, I know I still want to make a difference (more on that in a future post). As my priorities change I want to make sure to listen to my new dreams. The problem is that I’m not quite sure yet what they are. So here I am just trying to figure out my new happiness. Until then I will surround myself with laughter whenever possible. *

Life words.
.
.
‘Sometimes I’m the mess...’
AND that’s perfectly fine.
.
.
‘Sometimes I’m the broom...’
When energy flows and I feel ready to clean up...my mind primarily.
.
.
‘On the hardest days I have to be both.’
.
.
THIS part is always the most challenging because in life or in a day or in a moment...life throws you ten balls and then you learn to juggle. Fast.
.
.
I’ve gotten really good at curve balls. My reflexes have gotten stronger and 2018 has taught me that I am the ‘mess’ and I am the ‘broom’.
.
.
And most importantly that when I get knocked down...I ALWAYS get back up. Changed of course...but standing on my own two feet and stronger than before ❤️

Ok! To prove how amazing the land of Instagram is:
.
.
Last night, this dream boat and I were given VIP tickets to the taping of a CBC ‘New Year’s Eve’ special by ‘Air Farce’ from a magical new friend that I finally got to meet @skgibson1!  And now we are planning to ‘hug it out’ again and again as friends.
.
.
Instagram also brought @marilyn_jaqueline into my life and now we chat almost every single day! We FaceTime and don’t give a s**t about our hair or make-up. We just ‘GET’ each other. So much so...we just booked a trip to Mexico together!! I love her.
.
.
Instagram is how I really got to know the @rethinkbreastcancer community and now I can’t get enough of their knowledge and inspiration.
.
.
This is all proof that we can choose to connect with beautiful souls and have the power to brighten our days.
.
.
Sending out one massive virtual f**king hug to the universe this morning. I’m so damn thankful.

I’ve just needed some space. Sometime to rest and sometime to pull myself back up. I felt myself slipping. Something I can’t afford to do. The dark places my mind can take me. I won’t let it go there. Down the rabbit hole I will not go. I have scans coming up in 4 days and it’s important that I walk into scan week with a good mindset. The week leading up to scan results can be a dark and scary week. That’s why the month leading to scan week doesn’t get to be dark and scary. I’ve come to realize that the only way that is possible is by surrounding myself with things and people that make me happy, listening to my body, listening to my mind and regrouping when needed and cutting out all the unnecessary bullshit. *

"The Light", Acrylic 16×20

May you all find light in any journey that you are in.  Every day I choose light through my spirituality,family,friends and interests to combat the paralyzing darkness of Stage 4 inflammatory breast cancer. 
As I painted, it became clear that I needed the contrast between light and dark.  I also wanted to show my femininity without hair and breasts.  May you bathe in the healing power of the light.

Quite the fashion statement I know...
Hahahahaha😆😆😆
.
Just got one of the last pieces of the puzzle in my #breastreconstruction journey finished.
.
I gots me some new NIPPLES!! (And also did some more revisions, hence why I had to go completely under anesthesia again🙄 I think...I really have lost count...that brings me to 11 or 13 surgeries since diagnosis. Not counting all the ones I had BEFORE diagnosis! SHEESH do I hate “going under”...obviously the alternative would NOT be very fun though😆😆😆)
.
Now I come back in two weeks to get stitches out, and then wait about three months until everything is for sure healed to get my medical tattooing done to simulate the colors of the areola, etc...
THEN I’ll be ABSOLUTELY done (I hope, I hope...*knock on wood*...) with the breast saga.
.
It’s so funny (to me anyway), but I had SO MANY people ask me why I would go through all I have just to have “normal” looking breasts again...
To them I simply say...
“I lived flat for a year, I didn’t like it, I researched the type of recon I thought would suit me best (DIEP), and for all I’ve been through, I’m seeing it through to the end. It would be like running a race, but then stopping an inch before the finish line! Would YOU do that?”
I also think in my head...”You are only asking that question because you still have your natural breasts.”😕
.
The decision to have mine amputated was not MY decision...well, ultimately it WAS...if I had a death wish and enjoyed copious amounts of pain I could have kept them I suppose...🙄
But since I never ASKED to get cancer, or have the amputation...why is it so hard to understand that I would like to get back what was stolen from me?
.
Anywho...
.
The nips look good from what I can see so far...I’m excited to be this close to the finish line. .
But for now...I must rest.
❤️❣️🙏🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻🙏🏻❣️❤️

Yep! That’s me.
.
.
I don’t take ‘no’ for an answer. In life. Someone once called me a ‘quiet shark’ (pertaining to my job) and at first I thought: ‘Uh oh...I’m not sharky!?’
.
.
But then I thought, hell yes! I can ‘own’ majestic and fierce! I can ‘own’ the fluidity and movement of a shark.
.
.
All the while, with some good old fashioned ‘Golden Retriever’ like loyalty and warmth 💕
.
.
Fighter. That’s me. 💪🏻

Starting my day off right!
.
.

I just donated $25 to @rethinkbreastcancer for their beautiful ‘giving’ campaign @give.a.care ❤️
.
.
When breast cancer falls on a new woman, (And I mean it f**king falls) it’s this impossible internal struggle for sense of self. Life crashes around you and it’s a daily hustle to pick up the pieces.
.
.
I have looked to @rethinkbreastcancer since almost the beginning of my stage 4 diagnosis and they have always been a source of light, purpose & knowledge.
.
.
Please help me & them today by ‘Giving-A-Care’ and paying it forward during this holiday season. When you don’t know what to say to someone affected...this could be a beautiful topic of conversation because it’s based in love & respect.
.
.
Just click over to the link in the @rethinkbreastcancer bio & for every $25 donation ‘Rethink’ will gift a care package to a young woman going through breast cancer.

Sometimes you just have to smile to change the ‘tone’.
.
.
Yep! It’s proven...even faking a smile elevates the mood. (I’m doing it right this second as I type this post!)
.

What a lovely week it has been so far. I met wonderful new people, I had an amazing facial last night, my stomach is practically healed, and I’m NOT defined by cancer. I’m a woman on the mend!! (Despite a slightly disappointing genetics result)
.
.
It’s not Thanksgiving here in Canada but I AM thankful! And of course, Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends ❤️

Today is a wonderful day. Not only is it Thanksgiving but this year Loy Krathong falls on the same day. Loy Krathong is probably my favorite Thai holiday. People make/buy floating baskets made out of the trunk of a banana tree and banana leaves. You decorate the Krathong with flowers and inside of it you place a candle, a coin and three incense sticks. The Krathong floating symbolizes letting go of one's negative energy. People sometimes cut their fingernails or hair and place the clippings on the krathong as a symbol of letting go of negative thoughts. When I was young Manee and Nin would sit with me and teach me how to make a krathong. As I got better each passing year we would sit, listen to music and laugh while making krathongs for the family. It became some what of a competition. Always waiting to see who could make the most beautiful one. 
Today I ask you to not only give thanks to all that you have, but also to try and let go of past wrong doings. Take a moment to celebrate the people that surround you and that have been there for you. Give love and let go of negativity. 
Happy Loy Kratong 🌺 and Thanksgiving Day 🦃. * *

Happy Loy Kratong 🌺 and Thanksgiving Day 🦃. * * #metastaticallyme  #thisladyisthriving  #metastaticbreastcancer  #metastaticAF  #thisisstageIV  #ThisisMBC  #dontignorestageIV  #breastcancer  #metathriver  #cancer  #stageIV  #MBC  #breastcancerawareness  #pinksisters  #cancersucks  #breastcancerfighter  #chronicillnesssupport  #chemo  #chemotherapy  #curecancer  #triplepositive  #her2positive  #metavivor  #breasties  #lifewithcancer  #livingmybreastlife  #wearesurvivors  #thanksgiving  #loykrathong 
Herbal tea = Happy Nadine.

But first, I will never quit coffee! I love it. SO much. I keep it to one cup per day (lies...sometimes two).
.
.
I truly believe ‘what I put in’ is ‘what I get back’. Consuming organic teas (especially green) helps me get more out of my health. Yep! There are anti-cancer properties found in green tea! So I drink that shit up daily. Bonus, it ensures I get enough water in each day also.

Do you have a fave tea I should try??

This. It summarizes my feelings so well. When someone asks me how I am doing. It’s hard to know how real you should get. Do you tell them what they want to hear? Do you sugar coat the reality? Or do you just tell them your real thoughts? When you go ahead and tell them your real thoughts and the tears start. You catch a look. You realize that they weren’t ready for depressing. That’s not what they asked for. They aren’t ready for the reality. So you wipe away your tears, catch your breath and find something less real to talk about. * *

Happiness.
It’s a process.
.
.
It takes work, compassion and kindness.
.
.
First, I’m practicing more kindness towards myself so that I can share more kindness with everyone around me.
.
.
Acceptance and the stages of grief.
.
.
I am passing through them and feeling MUCH more confident in finally moving out of denial and recognizing my new life. I was SO distracted and then I crashed. I am awake now. My positivity is no longer a ‘front’, a ‘distraction’ or a ‘cover up’.
.
.
I AM authentically happy. And YES, I will have days where I want to hide under the covers and cry...but I know now that I had to crash in order to come back to life🙏🏻❤️

And just like that. The sun came back today! Thankful to see the light! (And every intention of going for a lunch time walk) ☀️

And today my love ‘did it again’. He makes me feel like I am unstoppable, like I am a warrior.
.

I have never been more ‘woman’ than I am right now. 36 has turned out to be a year of triumph.

(Unless maybe you do fear the bus often because you’ve had a horrific experience with one in the past) 
Aside from that, the “There are no guarantees, anyone could walk out in the street and—” comments don’t work for me. It’s rudely undermining what we are experiencing. It’s unhelpfully obnoxious and flat out annoying. 
Because in the case of stage IV breast cancer, we actively live out our days knowing with very high probability what it is that is going to eventually cause our death. And that is a pretty fucked up thing to be aware of. More so when you’ve not even reached middle-age. 
A freak accident is definitely low on the list of things I am concerned about. It could happen. But it doesn’t soothe or take away or dull the reality of what it’s like to have had your body develop a life-threatening disease. It doesn’t suddenly make me care-free about my situation. And it doesn’t change the fact that I am reminded of my circumstances every time I cough or undress or get another needle poked into me. 
Plus, it’s kind of a jerk thing to say to someone going through chemo... “It’s not just the cancer you should be worrying about - you could also die as a pedestrian!!!” *insert maniacal laugh here* 
I shake my head and my hands of these unnecessary bus death scenarios! People need to put a lid on it.

I am finally starting to feel like myself again! These past few weeks have proven very challenging for me in MANY ways.
.
.
Mentally, I’ve struggled.
*Some doubt crept in, isolation, the mourning of children I never wanted but still knowing it will never happen for me proved to hurt more than I thought. New scars on my belly physically show me that I am in a battle for my life.
.
.
I looked in the mirror last night. I looked really damn hard. I cried for my body. I cried because it just plain sucks.
.
.
AND then I started to smile. ‘LOOK’ I said! Look at ALL you have accomplished this year. I am SO proud.
.
.
I’ve been excelling in my new journey, I’ve been finding my true self all year long & now I KNOW I will wear these scars and any more to come with pride.
.
.
These scars are not a reminder of what I have lost, but rather a reminder of how I am growing!

As dark as this one is, I am grateful for moments that are followed by a wave of fear. Although the fear is there I won’t allow it to take over. I am happy and mostly healthy and I won’t let the thoughts in my head take that away from me. Wishing for many more moments of great happiness. 🤞❤️

I met you 19 years ago on this day at a Tim Hortons before an emergency piano lesson.
.
.
My God, the beautiful life we have together. We are SO rich in love. Through it all. Even with my defects...you always hold my hand.
.
.
“All that you are is...all that I’ll ever need.” I thank God for you every day.

This is what happens when the OR is backed up. Hospital selfies ✌🏻

I’ve got my two main men by my side and I’m ready to get this show on the road. (AND I’m starving! Total pizza treats tonight)

New chapter to commence, more good vibes AND of course LOVE ❤️💪🏻

I met @sunlight_riseandshine six weeks ago. Living in Barcelona most women I meet in treatment either speak Catalan or Spanish. When I heard my first English speaker after 8 months of treatment I just knew I had to reach out to her. We sat across from each other and started chatting. A metatvivor just like me we had so many things to talk about. Same age and same attitude. This disease does not define my life or who I am. Yesterday we sat next to each other and it was just as nice. I am so happy our paths have crossed and I look forward to the next time we get to hang out again in three weeks time. Look at those smiles. 💛😊

Yes, it’s true.
.
.
Sometimes, I cannot give. Sometimes, I need to step back because the feelings are all too much and I need to focus on self-preservation.
.
.
I love my family, friends & social friends but it’s difficult to relate sometimes.
.
.
The thing about it, is that the mental ‘game’ takes priority and last week was quite possibly my worst emotional week since this started.
.
.
I think the stages of grief are quite accurate. I am moving through them and learning. I am feeling much better this week as I embark on another step towards healing.
.
.
My dad flies in tomorrow morning, surgery on Thursday & feeling peaceful. I am focused. I am grateful. And I am singing sweet love songs to my beautiful body 🙏🏻

WOMAN. Joint pain. Bone loss. Vaginal atrophy. Anytime of day Sweats. Trigger finger claw hands. Brain fog. 😑 Oh the joys of induced menopause and anti-hormonal side effects. (plus this shit is forever when you have mets.) 😖 Longing to be a normal 30-something year old so hard right now.

Because it’s finally scarf weather. When I found out that I was going to need to go through chemotherapy I imagined myself rocking a wig. Once I saw the price of wigs I decided to give scarves a go. 😝Even after purchasing my first wig I just felt more comfortable in my scarves. I loved matching my outfits and adding an extra color to my usual black. The first time I dropped by work wearing a scarf one of my little guys went home and told his dad that today Ms.Anne was wearing the most beautiful crown he had ever seen. 👸🏻❤️ (I’m a preschool teacher) Wear your scarf. Own your look. Have some fun. 💛💛💛

Ok. Has this week kicked anyone else’s ass?
.
.
I’ve been ALL over the map this past week. And I mean ALL over! Working on accepting all of the ‘feels’ and releasing the bad energy.
.
.
I meditated every day this week, cut dairy, reduced meat consumption, and cut sugar to a literal bare minimum and worked out every day to clear my head.
.
.
Feeling better about the week ahead and damn happy the little Halloween treats are gone! (My first year with no little bars or candies...maybe that’s why I was so grumpy haha)
.
.
Weekend bliss setting in ❤️

Love this and so true!! I have had to rebuild my life several times over! The challenges helped shape me and build me up to the person I am today. And yes those challenges keep creeping up and testing me, it's easy to just say. "I give up " trust me I have teetered on the edge a few times but there is this internal fire in me gives me the strength to say...not backing down I will find a new way to stand tall. So hotstuff today and every day when a challenge arises I challenge you to embrace it and find a new way to stand
 I believe in you 💪😘💪#fitmom #kickingcancerwithfitness #nevergiveup #challenges #reinventyourself #metathriver

On this day last year, I ended my multi-brand showroom chapter and moved out of my beautiful office.
.
.
It was a chapter filled with much joy & growth. And then like many things in life, the time came to start anew.
.
.
Burnout had set in. My body was tired. She was setting me up for the year ahead.
.
.
It’s incredible the way things happen. Thankful & blessed for my past, my ‘now’, & my future of light ❤️

Purpose. What is yours? Not only have I been shocked to learn how many young women have been diagnosed with stage IV cancer but I’m also shook by how many of them have children. I imagine that purpose is made very clear for these women. Your children and your family. But what happens when you don’t have children or even a significant other? What is your purpose then? When I was first diagnosed I went to see a Psycho oncologist assigned to me by the hospital. I would go see her and I would cry and cry each time I was with her. She always asked me the same questions. Who has been with you through chemo? Who has been there to listen to you? Who has been there supporting you? And no matter how much I was crying she would always tell me that I was lucky to have the support I have and that I was doing okay. I soon realized that she was making sure I wasn’t a suicide risk. I guess she was making sure that I felt like I had a purpose. Which makes a whole bunch of sense to me after finding out internet statistics for survival. But like she said I am one lucky girl. I find purpose in so much that I do and so many people I know. I am living today and willing to do anything it takes because of you. My mom, my dad, my brothers, my sister in law, my nieces, my cousins, my aunts and uncles, my little doggie, my Barcelona family, Bangkok family, Manila family, San Francisco family, Hong Kong family, parents of students that have become like family, my work family, my Instagram family and everyone cheering me on from a distance. You give me purpose in your own way. You may not know it but I am here trying my very best because of you. Thank you for giving me purpose. (If i forgot anyone I’m blaming it on chemo brain. You know who you are. ❤️) * *

I used to walk down the street completely oblivious to others. I mean, weren’t we all healthy?
.
.
I now walk down the street with these thoughts:
Who are you? Are you healthy? Are you happy?
&
I bet you have no idea that there are many of us walking amoungst you...looking at you and envying your ‘assumed’ perfect health. Just wishing for a moment that we could go back to the way it was...before.
.
.
Sometimes, even positive people crack. Sometimes, dark thoughts enter and it takes extra work to re-balance the mind.
.
.
I am not perfect. Far from it. I promised transparency and this is it. Sometimes I am sad. Sometimes I am afraid. And to those who have dm’d me. Yes, I cry. A lot. You are not alone. I ‘hear’ you.
.
.
Today, I am content & re-balancing.

Goodbye Elkano. Saying goodbye to the place that I have called home for the last two years. Through it all this apartment has been my security blanket. The one place I felt safe.  This place has seen some good times and most definitely it has seen my worst. 🌍 Moving back to Europe after 21 years in Asia ❤️ Visits from friends and family 😂Countless nights of laughter 🍕 Late night dinners 🧚‍♂️Friends making themselves feel at home and making me feel at home 🧟‍♀️ Seven rounds of chemo 💔 Finding out my father had passed away 🌏 Long term visitors through it all 🐶 Lola moving to Barcelona 😘 My mom moving to Barcelona 
Looking forward to making our new place feel like home and making happy memories. 🏘🚛🏘

This is the final month of our wonderful Serenity Project. It’s been important for drawing attention to MBC, but as CJ notes, there’s also an underlying symbolism that adds to the beauty of the images. #sponsored

We really can't quite explain just how incredible this woman is. If you couldn't tell already, we are humbly in awe and feel lucky to call this gal a friend. She is doing some truly amazing, impactful things right now to advocate for women living with breast cancer. Head over to her Instagram stories now - @thrivetoshine - and watch. If you feel inclined to help, we have a very fun way you can do just that! Til the end of October, we are donating 20% of the sales from Nadine's 5 Favourites collection to @lgfbcanada - a charity that helps Canadian women to manage the effects that cancer and its treatment have on their appearance. Head to the link in our bio to shop the collection ❤️ #LookGoodFeelBetter ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Raising money specifically for MBC research is a vital part of METAvivor’s work. Here, CJ describes how it began with her outrage when she learned about the lack of funding for metastatic breast cancer research, and the remarkable achievements of METAvivor since then.

Everything about this!
.
.
BE who you want to be.
FEEL what you want to feel. 
Spend time with the people who matter the most.
.

Why wouldn’t we do the above? What’s crazy about this quote...in my twenties, I spent so much time hiding, questioning & wasting time and experiences.
.
.
Enter my thirties (and most recently a life change) and I am SO damn unapologetically ME. And damn...I’m pretty freakin’ awesome. Yeah! I said it. The thing you aren’t supposed to say. I LOVE me. I think I’m the damn shit.
.
.
DO it! Tell yourself how awesome you are! I mean the REAL you! The five year old you (ya know, the vulnerable one) ❤️

At first, I set out on my social media in April (after the literal shock wore off) to chat all things cancer, all the time.
.
.
Then I went: ‘Nadine. Stoppp! You are NOT cancer. You need to show people that just because you have it...it doesn’t define you.’
.
.
My insta will not be post after post of this monster. Instead, it will be a touch of it (of course...I mean I’m not ignoring reality and it is a big part of my life) and then it will be a healthy dose of the following:
.
.
Happiness (and the like)
Fashion (because I love it!)
Fella, friends & family
Random loves, jewels, etc.
.
.
AND sharing people & companies I love! Like...@smitherystyle and our final week to give back! Aka 20% of the sale of these fab red pants goes over to my friends @lgfbcanada (until end of October) ❤️
.
.
Ok. End rant. I JUST want to be ME! AND I am NOT defined by my illness. AND as they say: ‘I don’t look sick!’ (Sorry, couldn’t help myself on that one)

CJ shares some of her experiences, including living with the reality that MBC is always there, as well as natural anxieties about bodily changes or new symptoms. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a great time to share stories and help support one another. #sponsored
