I don’t usually write life updates or things happening in my life very often. But it’s midnight and I’m just sitting here on my bed, having a time of reflection (Psst, if you want to watch my Bahamas Trip Vlog, scroll down to the bottom). I just came back from Edmonton, where my grandpa had his funeral. And it really hit me how short life is.
I’m a huge fan of Tony Robbins (because I’m a nerd and I’m really into self development/personal development) 😉 He talks about how the majority of people in life don’t achieve their dreams.
I really think this is so true.
Well, what does this have to do with my blog, you might ask?
Launching this blog has become a dream come true for me. It’s been an avenue for me to reach out to people, to educate people about the science behind eczema, and it’s helped people even find healing! (scroll down here to read just a few of the success stories from people who have healed after reading my blog).
I’d never in a million years think that a moment like this would happen.
And, it’s been such a blessing.
I remember praying for over 15 years just to be healed (as you may know if you read my story here).
I remember struggling and struggling. Everyday, I remember being in so much pain. Living in so much pain. I remember crying buckets of tears…and thinking no one cried as much as I did. Life was so painful and I felt disgusting. I couldn’t endure it.
Now I know why my prayers asking God to instantly heal my skin didn’t happen, even though I had prayed so hard for it. If God had healed me in an instant, I’d never learn about using nutrition to heal the body.
In fact, even after healing my body, I experienced a few more flare ups (even when my diet was amazing). I couldn’t understand why.
But now I know that, sometimes, God allows setbacks so that we learn even more.
For instance, even though my skin had healed a lot last year and at the beginning of this year, it was still so unbelievably dry.
It was bugging me so much. I couldn’t go minutes without moisturizing.
Even if I was out in the car, or at work, I’d had to constantly apply moisturizer. And it was frustrating having to constantly reapply it (arrrgghhh!)
It wasn’t until I did a lot of healing in my body, did live blood cell analysis, and really worked on some deeper issues (not just related to nutrition), that my skin healed. And lately, it’s feeling soooo amazing. My skin can go hours without moisturizer, and it no longer feels this dry. It feels like a miracle come true!
I’m learning so much that healing the skin isn’t just about using nutrition to heal the body, but it’s way more than that on a deeper level.
I’m hoping to share more about what I’ve learned in the upcoming few months.
In the meantime, thank you for allowing me to share what I’ve learned with you, and for stepping in this journey with me to hear what I have to say.
Eczema really made me a defeated person growing up, but you’ve given me hope that dreams do come true and that I can help people like you – which is what I’ve always dreamed of doing 🙂
If you or someone you love is suffering from eczema, keep believing that you’ll heal.
Thank you so much for reading, and may you be so blessed.
Walking on this journey with you, xo
Want to watch my Bahamas Vlog? Check it out here!
We took a recent family trip to the Bahamas (just before the city was hit by a massive hurricane and flood!). Check out us snorkelling, swimming underwater, and watch until the end when we slide down a dark tube! (We also swam with sharks, but sadly that part wasn’t caught on camera 🙁 ). This vlog was shot using our GoPro camera.
