Living on tracheostomy tube brought me closer to God – Toyin Lawani

Fashion stylist Toyin Lawani has recollected her battle with degenerative spine, saying that living on a tracheostomy tube brought her closer to God.

The mother of two spoke in a lengthy post on Instagram on Thursday while counting down to her birthday celebration on March 1.

Toyin Lawani, also known as Tiannah, said the past year hasn’t been easy for her as she was shattered, broken and bedridden beyond imagination.

She added: “Living on a tracheostomy tube was not a joke, Which brought me closer to God & I learnt valuable lessons about resilience, hope, strength & power of true friendships, But through it all I wake up smiling like I have no worries cause I knw I will be giving someone hope, Even while my heart Bleeds out. I’m ready to mend others, still on that journey of acceptance, But through it all, one thing remains clear, Taking time to focus on my health &well-being, I am reminded of the importance of self-care, self-love, & the need to prioritize what truly matters in life.

“I’m committed to emerging from this stronger, wiser, & more empowered than ever before, As I embark on this journey of healing& self-discovery, Whether it’s through ur kind words, ur encouragement, or ur prayers, ur support means the world to me & I am eternally grateful for each& every one of you, Putting smiles on peoples faces is my favourite thing & I pray to continue to do so. Losing my voice was a huge setback for me. Not breathing well daily, opened my eyes to a lot we also take for granted in life.

Toyin also said she is committed to making a positive impact in the lives of others.

“Today is promised tomorrow is not. Touch has much soul as you can while you are still here, I know normally my birthdays, February we would have started countdown. But trust me I don’t even have the strength, As I embark on this journey of healing and self-discovery.

“I will focus on launching my own wellness initiatives to partnering with organizations that promote health& healing while creating awareness for rear diseases, I am committed to making a positive impact in the lives of others as usual & spreading love and positivity wherever I go,” she wrote.
