The benefits of a gratitude practice…

The gratitude challenge results are up in story highlights on Instagram and Facebook!! I loved reading your responses. Thank you so much for sharing!!

Some of the gratitude responses! ❤️❤️ @nursehealingadvocate

I want to take a moment to reflect on the benefits of gratitude…

Gratitude is so good for the energy of the soul, and has the power to uplift the weary spirit.

It is free and one of the most effective tools I know of that restores and maintains your health.

A dedicated daily practice of gratitude powerfully supports all aspects of your health.

When we feel better, we do better. We choose life! And, we choose more often to live in faith rather than fear when we are in a place of gratitude, no matter the circumstances.

“When we feel better, we do better. We choose life!” @nursehealingadvocate

I’m curious….
do you have a gratitude practice?

If so, I’d love to hear about it!

If not, World Mental Health Day is a great day to start!

For me, I write in my journal a short list of the things I am grateful for at the end of the day.

I’m not perfect. Some days I get busy and I forget, but continuing to come back to this practice of daily gratitude as I review my day creates peace in my life.

I hope you have a blessed day, and invite you to choose gratitude, not for all things, but IN all things.

With gratitude,
Ruth Renee RN

Psalm 100:4-5

What I’ve Learned so far at 41…

After 6 months of going through the nurse coaching processing as a client, I know without a doubt that my voice matters!

I am no longer afraid to publicly say what I think even if it is different than the majority. I have the courage to be me and am choosing from this day forward to accept others where they are.

What do you need to say out loud that you have not yet said? I challenge you to speak the truth in love, holding nothing back.

It’s okay to believe differently than those we love. Unity is not uniformity.

Unity is defined as “a thing forming a complex whole.”

A little something I read on Instagram that spoke deeply to my heart early this morning when sleep alluded me…

“Bring me the one who disagrees to my face but supports me behind my back. Bring me the one who takes risks a little far but pushes people to be better than they were today. Bring me the one who challenges me to rethink my perspective, to research before forming an opinion, and who has relentless faith that we will work out our differences and if we don’t, we’ll disagree cordially….

Bring me the messy ones.” @principal_jess

“Bring me the messy ones!” – Jessica Alessio @nursehealingadvocate

I’m so thankful for a mother who taught me, and continues to teach me, about unconditional love in spite of differences in beliefs, appearances, and talents.

Most everything I learned about love, I learned it first from my mother because of her relentless courage to choose faith over fear, love over hate, unity over division.

She taught me it’s okay to be messy, that it’s okay to be myself, that it’s okay to be different. She accepts me as I am, and holds space for me no matter the choices I make.

It is my hope for every human that you find your path and find your peace, wherever that may be.

It is my belief that we are on this earth to hold healing space for each other, no matter what.

Much Love!!!
Ruth Renee

The benefits of bare feet and bare soil…

🪴 Wednesday Wellness Tip!

Better than caffeine…
Bare feet and bare soil
Time outside in the sun
Reconnecting with the earth
is good for the soul

🌍Our planet holds an incredible amount of energy. Spending time barefoot on the earth is a grounding technique I use to settle anxious energy or elevate a depressed mood.

✨ There are many possible health benefits of reconnecting with nature, including but not limited to….

-reduced stress and anxiety
-relief from chronic pain
-improved sleep
-better regulated nervous and endocrine systems
-enhanced mental focus
-strengthened immune system
-heightened creativity
-lighter and/or elevated mood
relaxation and calm
-more balanced energy levels

Bare feet and bare soil are good for the soul. @nursehealingadvocate

☀️ I love to go outside everyday for at least 20-30 minutes. After I go for a jog or a bike ride, I take off my shoes and socks. I choose to walk barefoot as I water the plants in my garden.

I spend time in awareness of the beauty around me, using all my senses to breathe it in. I am able to set aside my worries and focus on my connection to the earth and to God.

🥰 I use this outside time to let go of the stories in my head, to connect to the present moment, and focus on gratitude for the beauty around me. I thank God for the the gift it is to live on this beautiful earth.

Warmly,
Ruth Renee RN

I’m curious… how will you reconnect with nature today, and how will it benefit you most?

We are wired for connection…

We have to get back to a place where we look each other in the eyes, in person as much as possible!

If you’re feeling isolated or lonely, I have this question for you…

How is your connection with humans in the real world? It it greater than, equal, or less than your connection to social media and the digital world?

If you need some help finding balance and connection, I can help.

My hope is for our world to come out of isolation, and find greater peace in connecting with each other as raw, vulnerable humans.

My challenge for you today: connect with 3 people today in person, and really look each other in the eyes. 👀

Where is your favorite place to connect with others in person?

We are wired for in-person connection. @nursehealingadvocate

I Am Blessed!! ✨✨✨

I am blessed. @nursehealingadvocate

Welcome to my raw, authentic, messy and brave nurse coaching world! I’d love to introduce myself to everyone.

My name is Ruth Renee, and my favorite colors are turquoise and deep blue. To me, these colors signifies healing, inner wisdom, and boldly speaking the truth in love.

It took me many years to discover how powerful and needed my voice truly is!!

For too long, I believed lies that I was not enough, that I was not worthy, that I was not lovable, loving, or loved.

CW//brief mention of sexual abuse

.

.

.

.

When I was 7 years old, I was sexually abused for a short time. It shattered me in a profound way. But because of my courage and faith in God, I continually persisted forward. I take the next right step in faith, and I can now trust that God will not fail me.

Today, I accept who I am and where I have been. I know that my past does not define me. It may have shaped and molded me for a season, but God transformed me in a way that I will forever be grateful. In God’s image and by His love, I am forever changed. A new creation! A beautiful butterfly who now knows that she has wings and was always meant to fly!!

My purpose as a nurse coach is to help other women heal and move beyond the ashes of destruction, lies, and limiting beliefs trapped in their hearts and minds. It is the pure desire of my heart to be an advocate for real and lasting change. As a nurse coach, I gently guide other women toward healing and grace, toward receiving the perfect love that only God can give. “We love because he first loved us.”

If you don’t feel lovable, loving, or loved, please know that I have been where you are now. I appreciate how hard it is and how alone you may feel. I plead with you to not suffer in silence, to not isolate, to not believe the lies playing over and over in your head. Please know that I am here hoping and praying that you never give up on yourself!

Many times, I wanted to give up. Unfortunately, trauma patterns had a strong hold on me for a season because I believed the lies told to me by unsafe people. But, God sent believers into my life to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus; to show me sincere loving kindness in a way that I had not been able to receive for many years. Right place, divine timing! I give the glory to God for saving me. But I did play a part. I prayed for angels and God sent many beautiful souls to help me heal and learn to trust again. I believed in faith that God would help me. I took the first step in courageously bold prayer.

If you feel lost, I am here. If you are afraid, I am here. If you feel hopeless, I am here holding on to Hope against Hope until you can trust and believe for yourself that you are beautiful and loved, just as you are. You are perfectly imperfect, and God made you just as you are for a unique purpose. I am here to be your guide, to help you see the light and truth until your vision becomes more clear. I am here to help you get out of your own way so that you can be the bright light you were created to be. I am here without judgment, control, or manipulation. I am here carrying gentleness, grace, empathy, even courage and peace. I would love to share these gifts God has given me. You are worth it. Your greatest identity is as a child of God.

If you are struggling to feel hope, I would love to be a bridge to peace. I would love to be a light on your path to help you see the way forward to hope. You were fearfully and wonderfully made to receive God’s love and grace so that he can carry you home. I believe with all my heart, might, mind, and strength that God is for you. You are created by love, for love. To love and be loved. It is wired in your DNA to be connected to God and to other people. Please know that there are safe people to whom you can reach out! I would be honored to be that person who holds a safe nurturing space for you. A rich soil to help you blossom and grow.

As a nurse coach, I am passionate about helping other women feel wholly confident in their own skin. I am believing for you until you can fully believe in yourself that “all things are possible when we believe.” God is a promise keeper and a “man of His word!”

If you feel stuck, look up! The sky changes every day!! Peaceful Sunset @nursehealingadvocate

So many women come to me for help because they believe the lie that they are not enough. I am right here, right now telling you that this is simply not true!!!

God created YOU just as you are for a reason. You are fearfully and wonderfully made because you have a purpose and you are UNIQUE, SPECIAL. and LOVED! God wants to prosper you and give you a hope and a future, not harm you. GOD IS FOR YOU!! f you believe, then all things are possible. This is my faith and my hope. Empathy and desire for restoration is what motivates me to get out of bed each and every day.

If you would like to connect, please consider reaching out to have a conversation. You don’t have to live in fear. You don’t have to suffer alone. I am here. I see you. I believe you, and I believe in you. You are more than enough. You are worth it! You are not alone.

I’m so curious, where do you find even the tiniest spark of hope? Focus there and remember that HOPE is the belief to “Hold On, Pain Ends!”

You can reach out to me by email at nursehealingadvocate@gmail.com to set up an initial call. Or, you can find me on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn @nursehealingadvocate.

I hope to talk to you sooner than later, and would absolutely love to help you become your own best healing advocate!!

Resilience, not perfection…

In our society, I often hear the saying “progress, not perfection.” But these words do not resonate for me.

Being a recovering perfectionist, I often see progress as needing to be only forward moving.

To me, “progress” says mistakes are okay as along as they don’t set me back, as long as I remain in forward motion.

However, when I hear the word “resilience,” I think of being brave and getting back up every time I fall.

I think of how it’s okay to take 1 step forward and 3 steps back.

To me, resilience says it doesn’t matter how far or fast I go. The only thing that matters is that I never give up.

“Resilience, not perfection.”

Meditate upon these words. Be aware of how you receive them. Allow grace into your heart and soul.

—-

Growth is messy. Action over perfection is messy. Resilience not perfection is messy and imperfect, and that’s okay. It’s actually quite a beautiful thing.

To my reader, where has focusing on perfect progress held you back? Where can you give yourself permission to be imperfect and resilient?

If you’re a perfectionist interested in growing your resilience, please email me at nursehealingadvocate@gmail.com. I would LOVE to coach you!

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
