✔Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), also known as Munchmeyer disease, is an extremely rare connective tissue disease. It is a severe, disabling disorder with no current cure or treatment. It is the only known medical condition where one organ system changes into another.
✔Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is caused by a mutation of the gene ACVR1.
✔ The mutation affects the body's repair mechanism, causing fibrous tissue including muscle, tendons, and ligaments to be ossified, either spontaneously or when damaged as the result of trauma. In many cases, otherwise minor injuries can cause joints to become permanently fused as new bone forms and replaces the damaged muscle tissue. This new bone formation (known as "heterotopic ossification") eventually forms a secondary skeleton and progressively restricts the patient's ability to move. Bone formed as a result of this process is identical to "normal" bone.
✔ Circumstantial evidence suggests that the disease can cause joint degradation separate from its characteristic bone growth.
So many times I’ve waited to do something because I didn’t feel ready yet or capable or my project wasn’t completely perfected.
Instead of waiting I’m just going to show up with I have and who I am and be available.
There is no perfect. There’s just the here and now with continued growth. The bar keeps moving as we move. I guess that’s what makes life interesting and what keeps us moving and challenged.
🕯Dreams and inspiration are resurrecting and oh so powerfully. Awaken and remember who you are, remember you are magical AF.
This is a time of enlightenment and great wisdom. Listen with the soul and mind and body.
There is a lady in my neighbourhood who cycles on a daily basis.
She loves it. She often appears relaxed, breezing past at a pace that appears swift.
Today the same lady cycled past but this time, she also had a big bag of something strapped on the back of her bike.
Today, her pace was very different.
She was much slower and navigated with much more care.
Took her time to balance and rebalance repeatedly.
When it came to an uphill slope, she unmounted and walked instead.
In mijj vorige non-food post had ik het onder andere over the Growth mindset. Naar mijn idee denk je met deze positiever, je ziet kansen en ideeën.
Maar positief denken is niet altijd zo makkelijk. Ik had deze post al langer in gedachte maar vandaag deed zich een mooi voorbeeld voor:
Ik zat er helemaal doorheen, klaar met de zonnealergie, klaar met het niet naar buiten kunnen en vooral klaar met de pijn. Kort gezegd ik zat in een draaikolk naar beneden.
Maar toen dacht ik: 'Nee Ann, kijk eens goed. Je hebt gewoon twee benen, je hebt een dak boven je hoofd, je hebt voldoende eten en drinken, je bent geliefd.' Als kers op de taart won ik nog een winactie van @steviala 🙏🏻
Nou inderdaad waarom kijken naar de dingen die ik niet heb of niet kan als ik ook kan kijken de dingen die ik wel heb en wel kan want dat zijn er zoveel meer🙌🏼
Zo probeer ik steeds meer bezig te zijn met positive thinking of dr lichtpuntjes zoals @joycevanmeeuwen ze altijd zo mooi noemt. Ik merk dat ik dan gewoon veel positiever, gelukkiger, blijer, ect. wordt😄
Ook schrijf of bedenk ik dagelijks de dingen waarover ik dankbaar ben, zo blijf ik op de lijn naar boven📈
Dus als je er doorheen zit, yep het is kut. Maar blijf positief door de dingen die je nog wel kunt en weet: Ook jij bent geliefd ♥️
Mooie avond allemaal😘

Shake off the shackles of your past. Gently release what no longer serves you. Make it intentional. Let yourself experience the freedom of stepping into the future with courage and curiosity rather than fear && hope rather than resistance. YES.YOU.CAN.
Hi guys! 👋🏼 for new people to my page, here’s some super honest bits about me: ⠀
📍34 living in #NYC ⠀
🧠 Love learning about #personalgrowth . I joke there isn’t a psychology/relationship book I haven’t read. I love the science behind our emotions, manifestation, meditation, and anything that feels like a “workout” for you heart and soul. 💪🏼 ❤️ ⠀
🧖🏼♀️I’m a skincare/beauty guru and know products+hacks that’ll change your life.⠀
🍷I love wine (get bad hangovers so keep it to 1x a week), all things Europe 🇬🇧 🇫🇷 , good aesthetics for design + fashion, and have a young-at-heart & goofy personality. I get anxiety. ⠀
🍟I’m a major foodie but openly indulge in McD’s from time to time without zero judgement from myself or others.⠀
📲I ran a dating app owned by #Bumble . I KNOW fatigue that comes w/ modern dating VERY WELL and how apps work. I have a side project around this I’ll announce soon.⠀
👉I have lot of relationship experience and can tell you what mistakes I’ve made and how to stay positive. 🙏🏼 I also want to talk about strengthening ALL relationships though, whether you’re married or not. ⠀
👄I’ve been IN LOVE 3 times (said “I love you” more but it wasn’t real), some 3-6 mo #microrelationships , texting romances that felt better than the real thing, #longdistance , a one-month-infatuation-then-ghosting situation(s), stuck in an emotionally abusive relationship, etc. I’ve dated guys from different countries/cities/careers. While its’s been one hell of a journey on this front, I want to share my learnings with you.⠀
💬I DON’t believe in settling for anything less than you deserve. I still worry about my timeline/life. What motivates me is trusting the universe that my journey will continue to be filled w/ experiences so wonderful I can hardly imagine them. 💭And practicing #resilience (which is where #growth stuff comes in). 🏃♀️ ⠀
🙌🏼 I hope my page inspires you to grow w/ me everyday. To know it’s OKAY to live a life that goes against the grain of what society tells us it should “be like”. We can make our own rules. I’m doing so and my life is pretty damn good! Lmk what content you want to see👇. Britt x
