You get no where in life by constantly having excuses and reasons as to why you can’t do something. Don’t let life hold you back from living your best life and being all that you Can be. One day and one step at a time. •

You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend. ― Bruce Lee

On paper, we have good odds for IVF success. We tick all the boxes. Great candidates, they told us. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy, we thought. 
But IVF isn't a "one-size-fits-all" and the reality of the treatment is anything BUT easy-peasy or indeed lemon-squeezy. In fact, it's difficult-difficult-lemon difficult.

Today, I'm 9 days into stimming, 14 injections down and there are just 2 follicles responding to the drugs (out of a bunch of 20 ~initially~ promising recruits). It's at this point in the treatment where it all turns into an excruciating numbers game and I'm currently trying to stop my brain from doing this 👇 .
.
.
"So if 80% of follicles contain an egg and 80% of those eggs are mature and 70% of mature eggs can be fertilised and my odds of success were 45% then...wait...no.. that was before I fell into the "15%-who-don't-respond-well-to-the-drugs" category and only 10% of the follicles grew so I guess that's dropped to like 4.5%............but if one of those follicles does contain a mature egg and lets say it does fertalise then there's a 20% shot at it surviving the 3 days for an embryo transfer, then a 25% chance of it being chromosonally normal and a 40% chance of it implanting in my uterus." .
.
🤯🤯🤯🤯 The only stats that really matter are these: we are 100% still in the game.
.
PS - just did my last Menopur jab, egg collection booked for Monday 😬🙏🤞💪🤷‍♀️🤪🧡

It was our #CERT All County meeting tonight with a focus on Hurricane Preparedness w local weather pro & Deputy Public Safety Commissioner Leonard Symons. He spoke about evacuation orders and storm surge effects and even showed us flood zone maps that don't tell the whole story but many people aren't aware and then become complacent.🌀 Bob Chiz, fire chief & CERT director along w our team leaders gave out these FM frequency receivers and set up a few displays for radio comms w @btgcomm and examples of household items to have stored for a 3 to 5 day reserve, at the very least. When Sandy hit here I lost power for 2 weeks but being midway on the island still had resources thankfully.
So it's #HurricaneSeason get trained and be prepared now while you can plan and learn new skills! (The next CERT Basics for us isn't until September!)📡🌪⛈☀️🌬🌡🎒🔋🔦

Speaking at the @unitednations on global drug reform has been a highlight of my year as a public health practitioner and advocate. There’s so much that goes into drug reform—just consider our ongoing opioid epidemic—the common denominator is that it all goes back to decisions—whether it be how we respond to the issues we have as a nation, who we elect into our offices, or the personal choices we make as members of society. One decision leads to another—every action has a reaction—and one good or bad decision can change the entire course of our lives.
-
Trauma and decision-making are almost always intertwined. One thing I know is that we ALL deal with trauma in different stages of our lives, and we should never pass judgement on anyone for how they choose to deal with theirs. What we should do is provide support to those people so they know they have better options. Prevention is also intervention. Like my fave hometown hero @realcoleworld said, #choosewisely. I feel like our community has this idea that something is wrong with us if we decide to seek therapy...or something is wrong if we call our strong friends to check on them...we’ve lost some of the greatest entertainers of our time due to drug use...we have to continue to break that stigma and give people the tools they need to heal, and lead healthy lives. We cannot do this without making efforts to tackle poverty, improving access to health, affordable housing, protecting the environment, reducing gun violence and abuse, and protecting the rights of the most marginalized communities. ✊🏽🖤

Speaking at the @unitednations on global drug reform has been a highlight of my year as a public health practitioner and advocate. There’s so much that goes into drug reform—just consider our ongoing opioid epidemic—the common denominator is that it all goes back to decisions—whether it be how we respond to the issues we have as a nation, who we elect into our offices, or the personal choices we make as members of society. One decision leads to another—every action has a reaction—and one good or bad decision can change the entire course of our lives.
-
Trauma and decision-making are almost always intertwined. One thing I know is that we ALL deal with trauma in different stages of our lives, and we should never pass judgement on anyone for how they choose to deal with theirs. What we should do is provide support to those people so they know they have better options. Prevention is also intervention. Like my fave hometown hero @realcoleworld said, #choosewisely. I feel like our community has this idea that something is wrong with us if we decide to seek therapy...or something is wrong if we call our strong friends to check on them...we’ve lost some of the greatest entertainers of our time due to drug use...we have to continue to break that stigma and give people the tools they need to heal, and lead healthy lives. We cannot do this without making efforts to tackle poverty, improving access to health, affordable housing, protecting the environment, reducing gun violence and abuse, and protecting the rights of the most marginalized communities. ✊🏽🖤

Hard work never goes unnoticed. ☺️ Today I received the GSD pin at work, which stands for getting stuff done. GSD is our 8th core value at @davita. This meant so much because this year I’ve struggled with Work/Life balance working full time and being @missamericany part time. Thank you DCR, my teammates and my manager for working with me in more ways than one to help me be the best version of myself inside and outside of the work place! 💙🧡 Working in my social impact has been the biggest blessing of this year! #itonlytakesone #missnewyork

It only takes one......
One song, one picture, one painting, one video, one meeting, one connection, one interview, one second, one hour, one day, one year, for your whole life to change. Do what you love and never stop following your dreams. - Garrett

I kept Romans 8:28 in the bottom of my shoes while competing for Miss New York. It was my armor—walking on the word: “And we know that all things work together for the good of them that love Lord, and are CALLED according to His purpose.”
-
In spite of not being a native New Yorker, and being called first runner up in June, I am Miss New York. It required me to learn a completely new state and genuinely make it my new home. I remember dreaming about it happening—not knowing when or how to expect it, but having confirmation that it was mine. When I wasn’t crowned in June, I was so confused, because I just thought I had God’s plan all figured out. He didn’t tell me how I’d get it—He just told me I would because I was CALLED according to His purpose.
-
God knew what I needed, and where I needed to be in September, when my mom would have a stroke, unexpectedly. God knew that I needed to be present to help make decisions that would save her life...While He knew that becoming Miss America was a dream I always chased, God knew it wouldn’t mean more to me than being there for my heartbeat—my mom. I can’t imagine having been at @missamerica during that time. Mentally, I don’t think I would have been strong enough to compete knowing that the whole inspiration behind my social impact was at death’s door. God really does know what’s best for us, and we have to trust His plan, even when things don’t make sense in the moment. Sometimes, the biggest blessings come in disguise, and the most difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations. 🙏🏽 ✨

God’s word is “a lamp 💡 unto my feet, and a light ✨ unto my path.” Psalm 119:105. “If you keep God’s word under your feet, God will always place a ‘crown’ over your head. If you walk on the Word, God will put on the crown.” 👑 @stevencarterny

My inner gangsta is shining this week y’all. The hustle is paying off. #pilotseason #dashonavail
•
It can be overwhelming, discouraging when you put yourself out there over and over again to just get passed up. But the good news is, it just takes one person to believe in you, not 5 or 50...just 1.
•
In high school I had this amazing English teacher, @whortonpatrick , who called BS on my half assed work and made me truly earn my grade. He told me I was better than this. He made me work hard AF, pull up, and GROW. He took a good teenage writer and made me great. (Comment below if you had Mr. Whorton, show that man some love!)
•
As a young adult I had Craig Yabuki, a CPA I assisted as my side hustle gig while I was dancing professionally. He forced me to learn a lot about taxes and accounting on my own. He’d give me assignments with no instructions and tell me “you’re smart, go figure it out”. And I would. I learned so much from him. The things he taught me gave me the knowledge but more importantly the confidence to start my own business.
•
And now today there’s a casting director who sees something in me. She gave me the opportunity to submit for #pilotseason and I am forever grateful and humble. 🙏🏻😌 The purpose isn’t to book the pilot, but to get me out there so that I can start to get my career to the next level. It’s not the outcome y’all, it’s the journey. And she sees my potential. It only takes one.
•
Who has been that one person who took you to the next level? How can you be that for someone else? How do you get others to see your potential? What ACTIVE steps do you take EVERY DAY that help you go where you want to and land in front of the people that need to see you?
•
HUMILITY for those who have helped me
SERVE those who I can help
COURAGE to ask for help when in need
