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.

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!

Do not go gently into the night…

Growing up, I was seen by others as the shy, QUIET kid. I was introspective. I was a deep thinker, but I was not quiet. Maybe with strangers who didn’t know me. But with my family, I was carefree, loud, even rambunctious at times!!

I am who God says I am. @nursehealingadvocate

For too much of my life, I let others define me. It took years of healing and separating myself from the crowd in order for me to realize that it’s okay to speak up when I see things differently. It’s okay to speak my truth. It’s okay to be different.

Last week, I made a bold decision to speak the truth at an even louder level. And ever since then, I have felt MORE FREE to be even less quiet and speak more of my truth! I am who God says I am, not how others perceive me.

And I am BOLD! I am STRONG! I AM COURAGEOUS!!

Be strong and courageous. @nursehealingadvocate

I choose to be seen and heard! I am safe to be seen and heard. I honor the part of me that remained QUIET in order to remain SAFE, but staying quiet no longer keeps me safe. I CHOOSE FREEDOM AND PEACE by BOLDLY SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE!!

I will not go gently or silently into the night. Shame lives in the silence, in the dark. I choose to let light shine out of darkness. I choose to rage against the dying light.

Will you JOIN me?

Will you join me? @nursehealingadvocate

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightning they Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

Do not go gentle into that good night ~ Dylan Thomas

To my reader, where has being quiet held you back? Where can you give yourself permission to speak up, to boldly speak the truth in love, to “rage against the dying of the light?”

If you’re interested in becoming a more assertive advocate for yourself, please email me at nursehealingadvocate@gmail.com. I would LOVE to coach you!

Why breakups can be a good thing…

Breakups are hard.

Here I am the day after a breakup…hair not washed, no makeup, and my eyes are puffy and swollen from crying yesterday. Honestly, exhausted and feeling worn down.

“To thine own self, be true.”@nursehealingadvocate

But….I am smiling!

I put on my workout clothes, take the dogs for a run, and listen to some worship music. As my feet hit the pavement, my body releases the emotional pain stored in my body. I let go and let God.

Breakups can be difficult because they can overwhelm us with a lot of pain in a short amount of time. However, breakups can be a good thing because they are an opportunity to heal the pain of the past as we comfort ourselves in the present.

In reaching out to talk to a friend yesterday, I gave myself the gift of an “empathetic witness” to not only the pain of the present, but also the pain of the past. And in doing so, I gave my inner child space and time to continue healing.

There is freedom in letting ourselves feel our feelings when they come so that we can release the pain and move forward.

There is freedom in setting boundaries with others when our deepest values don’t align.

There is freedom in choosing to protect our hearts, in choosing to be nothing other than our authentic selves.

Yesterday and today, I choose to rest and recover. I give myself permission to slow down, learn and grow.

I ask my inner child…

What do you need?

How can I be here for you?

How can I meet the needs you were trying to have met by the other person?

How can I meet the needs that weren’t met in your childhood?

What can I do for you right here, right now?

I tell my inner child…

I am sorry you were hurt in childhood.

I am here for you now.

I choose to protect your heart.

I choose you.

To my reader, I ask you this, where can you show yourself compassion and kindness? Where are you not choosing yourself? Where can you give yourself permission to change that?

In your hardest moments, I hope that you can give yourself permission to slow down and rest, to let yourself feel, to let yourself heal.

You are loved. You are enough. You are worth it!!

If you’d like to be coached on how to feel your feelings or connect with your inner child, please reach out to me at nursehealingadvocate@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

What is a nurse coach?

To say creating long-lasting, meaningful change in life is difficult is a serious understatement. Some days it can feel nearly impossible! Is it possible to progress past the early stages of change without having to start over again and again…and again?

I believe it is. What it all boils down to is support. Do you have the support you need to reach your long term goals?

I’m on an exciting new journey of becoming a nurse coach and I have some exciting stuff to share. But first, I’d like to address that question I’m sure you’re ready for me to answer by now.

What is a nurse coach? Simply put, a nurse coach is someone who will come alongside you on your wellness journey to help you achieve and maintain progress so that you can be a healthier, happier you!

A nurse coach is truly a catalyst for change in a holistic wellness revolution.

Now for the exciting news!

As part of my learning requirements, I have an amazing opportunity to work with clients for free. So, I will be offering 5 hours of FREE coaching in 4 sessions. With that said, I am excited to help you or someone you know build on their overall health and wellness.

Everything remains confidential per HIPPA guidelines. In our sessions, we will explore what is working well in your life and what isn’t. We will discover how you can move forward with a compelling vision and clear action steps.

Tools used in nurse coaching include: mindfulness, appreciative inquiry, strengths identification, and SMART goal setting.

Nurse coaches are trained in mindfulness, meditation, and breathwork exercises.

Nurse coaches practice deep listening, compassion, nonjudgment, seeking permission, and empowerment.

You are enough, and you have what it takes! You don’t need to stay overwhelmed trying to figure it out on your own. It begins with taking the first step.

I am here to encourage, acknowledge, and appreciate the gift that you are as an innately whole human being. You are enough!

With all my heart, I believe that lasting wellness is built from the inside out.

If you want the empowerment that comes with being your own best advocate or you are wanting to align or realign with your full healing potential, please direct message me, comment below or email me at nursehealingadvocate@gmail.com. Please include what you’d like to be coached on, and why.
