These past couple of weeks have been a roller coaster ride for us! Scans, anticipation, receiving results and navigating outcomes... Awaiting and receiving results is by far one of the most stressful, draining, and trying experiences in the life of a Thriver... This is also known as SCANXIETY. In fact, it's often more exhausting than treatment itself! We've had our fair share of scans and have developed some useful and practical coping skills that help us approach scans with a positive mindset, wait for results with a posture of assurance and receive the results empowered with an abundance of options. In Episode 19 of @thrivertalks, we face the scanxiety monster head on, take back our power, and stand firmly in our truth: that healing is not linear, moving forward is an act of faith, gratitude reveals the light, and trusting in the process and resting along our journey opens us up to a beautiful and abundant blooming. In today’s episode you will learn: ✨ Our experiences with scans to date ✨ Our pre and post scan practices ✨ How we reconcile our raw emotional experience with our unrelenting hope and positivity ✨ The best ways to support loved ones who are regularly scanned Listen now on all major podcast platforms or Watch on my YouTube channel.

You can listen to this week’s episode, “Cam,” on Apple podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or online at link in bio. 🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀Content Warning: This episode deals with issues of colonialism, racism, and sexism 🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀🎀 Here’s the question that inspired this week’s episode (the message has been slightly altered to preserve anonymity): I have lots of feminist feels. Mostly anger about the way that women are portrayed, street harassment, and representation of women in media and fashion. In this day and age I feel that, as a woman, not being skinny/not shaving your legs/not wanting babies is an act of RADICAL disobedience. I still feel pretty squeezed by narrow stereotypes, even though I'm almost 30. My question is: What does one actually DO with one's feelings of feminism? How do we speak out? How do we make change? It can be difficult to figure out how to channel our “feminist feelings.” How do we take our frustrations, sadness and concerns about white supremacist capitalist patriarchy and actually “do something?” How do we do this work in a world that is inhospitable to feminist activism? How do we take care of ourselves amidst the pressure to make change? This week, AY sits down with Cam, a street artist, community art organizer and curator based in Tiohtià:ke/Montreal to discuss art and activism. Cam shares some of her experiences and some helpful tips on how to find your crew - the people to do the work with. Learn more about Cam's work and her projects at @cam_mtl and @unceded_voices.
