Feel Good Fridays

Well, it’s Friday!  I apologize for my absence last week.

A few of my local EndoSisters are going in for surgeries next week.  And they are both holding their heads high and forging ahead.  But I also know they may harbor the doubts and fears we all hear in the back of our heads just before a surgery:  “What if they don’t find anything?”  “What if it’s all in my head?”  “What if it’s back?”

Well, today’s quote is for them.  And for you.  I’ve been blessed with this illness because I’ve met some of the bravest people I’ve ever known.  The strongest.  The most supportive.  And even then, we need comfort; even we Warriors need to be held, to be comforted, to be reminded that we are worthwhile.  And when the bad days and flares rear their ugly head, remember this:

“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.” 
― Mary Anne Radmacher

Keep looking forward.  As much as you can.  And when you’re curled up in a ball on the bed, crying because pain meds aren’t kicking in, or upset because someone didn’t believe you, or you’re just overwhelmed over the entire idea of this illness and any inabilities it may create…remember that there is always tomorrow. And the day after that. And the day after that.

And if you need it, take my hand. I’m right here with you.  And we can do this, together.

Love, Lisa

  1. Praying for your endo sister’s surgeries. I had a friend in surgery today. Here’s my big meow for all of us. I’ve got an event scheduled this month which I’m basically terrified will be sidelined by the beast. So, I’ll channel that fierce cat and hope for the best. ❤️
