What does Dr. Mignon think about change? Change is a part of our lives. Drastic change is happening now with the pandemic. Change in our work lives and in our personal lives. Transformation requires us to change which is often frightening and difficult. Resistance to change causes friction and only makes change more difficult. It does not have be so difficult if we can let go of the resistance and lean in to the process of change.

Fresh, Relevant, Authentic, Timely.. Real Life Medicine Content in real time.. this is no joke
September 3, 2021
Today's topic was inspired by me wanting to focus on being Unapologetically Happy in my own life. Recognizing that often we get caught up in the challenges of life or in our old behaviors or learned behaviors of not allowing for or appreciating life to the fullest at all times. Recognizing that life is not full of daises however more often than not there are more rainbows than we allow ourselves to see.

The Forty-Year-Old Version (a film review)
Dr. Mignon shares why she was so taken with writer and director Radha Blank’s The Forty-Year-Old Version. This Sundance winner is cleaver and refreshing . “I loved the story being told from the perspective of a nearly forty year old woman who still has dreams and isn’t afraid to chase them.” Well even if she is afraid to chase them she doesn’t let that stop her and in doing so she finds her strength and her truth which leads to her being authentically her. You see whether Radha knew it at the time or not this was a lesson that her mother taught her through her own life. She learned not to stay in the box that others drew for her and in doing so she became the person that she wanted to be. What a lesson and told with great humor. Thank you RadhaMusPrime. Namaste

It’s post-op Day #4 and I am getting ready for my first Physical therapy session. I’ve been behaving (I really don’t have much of a choice). My pain is really well controlled but this may change soon??? I am trying to embrace my status change of being the patient amongst other roles.

DrMignon Online 008 Today my Healing work involved a surgery
Today I addressed a physical problem that I have been having for five years. It has affected my life and how I feel for that period of time. I have a knee issue, injury that caused me to have pain, to wear knee braces, get MRI's and injections, an orthoscopic surgery and a stem cell injection which requires a bone marrow biopsy to obtain your stem cells. All of these procedures work for many but it did not fix my problem. I decided that I needed to stop prioritizing everyone else, my practice, my patients and take care of myself. Take care of myself for my future, my happiness and my health and well being of course. This podcast is about my surgical procedure day... check it out.

This is a timely review of the Netflix release Two Distant Strangers, a brief but moving short film.
Hear Dr. Mignon’s review, thoughts and feelings regarding this 32 minute short film which brings to the forefront the issues is racial bias, killings of black men and women which has continued to be an issue and seems to be getting worse. As we watch the trial of Officer Derek Chavin in the George Floyd murder trial we all must process what this means for us as a nation, as individuals and as Americans. This film is clever in that it brings these issues to the forefront in 30 minutes. Ending with a significant list of recent police encounters resulting in death. The time for love and open hearts is past due. The time for acceptance and fairness is past due. Hopefully it can help others see some of the challenges of simply being black. Being black is not a crime.

This is a dramatic continuation of Rachel Lopez's story. One of having her life attacked, or surviving an attempted murder, one of heart break and survival. This is a story of continuing to give love in the face of pain, because it is love that makes life worth living and relieves the pain. This is not a story of self sacrifice, it is a story of survival and growth. A story of being human and the gifts that we all have and should work everyday

DrMignonOnline 002: Addiction & Setting Healthy Limits
Setting limits and boundaries can be some of the most difficult things to do, especially when it is with out child, our spouse or someone you truly care about. Boundaries are key to our individual life recovery. It forces us to learn how to really love ourselves and others. Setting limits will give us strength, respect and confidence in ourselves. Others will know that we mean what we say and magically you will find that the individual will change or won't change. That is up to them and there is nothing we can do but respect their choice. Being empowered to make our own choices and strong enough to carry it out shows that we are evolving and opens us up to receiving the next gift, Relief and Serenity and Happiness.
