Hi there! I'd like to (re)introduce myself to you.
I'm Dr. Kelly, but to those I love... I'm just Kelly, Kelly Belly or Kellerts.

I love God, myself and my family (in that order). Barbados born and raised and it will always be home.

Board certified Endocrinologist who loves seeing patients, teaching and speaking about diabetes, thyroid disease and pretty much all things to do with hormones.

I'm also passionate about seeing women emotionally healed. As such beyond the stethoscope, I help high performing women overcome past hurt to have a healthy and happy relationship with themselves and others. You will also see me post/speak about self-love, boundaries and relational health.

Check out my website to learn more www.drkellywoodmd.com (Link also in Bio).

Fun fact: My favorite dessert is Caribbean rum cake/black cake/great cake. I'd sell one of my organs to get some.

Introduce yourself in the comments, I'd love to learn more about you too.

Whenever my nephew, Jonah, is feeling sad or overwhelmed he comes up to you and says "Hug, hug" and expects you to hug him or pick him up. He clearly states his needs, asserts their validity and follows them through until they're met.
.
.
If you have an insecure attachment style- anxious preoccupied (especially) or avoidant- you may find it difficult to express your needs to others. You kinda expect them to just know. And since most people aren't mind readers... you often end up feeling disappointed and resentful when your needs are unmet.
.
.
Well, you can change this: Know your needs are valid and worthy. You can express them to others and follow through on them to get them met.
.
.
Recently, I needed emotional support and I literally went up to one of my friends and said "Hug, Hug", after giving some background lol . I learned from Jonah.

It feels hella awkward at first but I promise it gets easier the more you ask for what you need and require others to show up for you.

In a few months, I'll be celebrating my ten year anniversary as an attending.

Ahhhh!!! I still can't believe how quickly the decade has flown by.

As I reflect , I'm thankful about how my journey has evolved.
Yes, I still like patient care but I also do other things I'm passionate about like speaking, writing and coaching. And honestly, sometimes they bring me more joy.
I'm excited to see where the next decade takes me!

Sometimes we think that other people should automatically know what we need of them. Like how would they not know?
We often we project our expectations (based on what we would do or how we would handle certain situations) on others and judge them harshly when they don't meet those expectations.

A friend and mentor once told me I had not required others to show up for me. And Sis was right.
Well, that has changed. I fight through the awkwardness, the feelings of "Dang, I could've said that better" and the vulnerability of asking for what I need.

My friend, it's actually healthy to ask for what you need. No one's going to read your mind.

Intentional.

Sis,

Find the things that bring you bring you joy and do them more often.

Be intentional about investing into the relationships that matter to you. Call, text, see the people who are intentional about you too.

Distance yourself from those who show you just how little you matter to them.

Be intentional about protecting your peace.

"Schedule your pleasure, because pain will schedule itself."- Dr. Mike Murdock.

I'm working on showing myself more grace and compassion. Embracing and loving who I am even as I work towards improvement.

Many of us have a word or theme for the new year. Initially I was like meh... Iโ€™m just happy to have made it out of 2020 alive and healthy.
But then I was telling someone I aim to use my voice more this year in my interactions. To better navigate those difficult conversations and not shrink back.
So Iโ€™m thinking ๐Ÿค”, my word(s) for this year are ASSERTIVENESS and AUTHENTICITY.
