Welcome to November 1st. There’s only 61 days left in 2019. And I feel like this year has just flown by.
I struggled to find a quote today. Everything I read fell flat in my heart. So, I reached to my co-worker, Shaldon, and asked if he had a favorite inspiring quote. He had shared this one on his Facebook page today…and I loved it…and I borrowed it for our blog.
No, it’s not Shaldon’s sloppy seconds. It’s sharing! And sharing means caring!
This one goes out to those EndoWarriors who need a cheat day and crave that bite of chocolate ice cream, or that cup o’joe with whipped cream, or those nightshades, or how about some cheeeeeese.
It’s okay to allow yourself a moment of happiness. Some may call it weakness, but I call it happiness. Don’t let the “Endo Diet” dictate your every day. But, do understand, that it may cause you some pain or symptoms to worsen.
Many of us don’t feel any difference following strict meal plans. Follow your heart. Your gut. Your instincts. And listen to your body.
But don’t be afraid to cheat every once in a while.
But the same goes for self-care. DO find time for yourself, to breathe, to meditate, to reflect, to honor your body, to say “no”, to embrace the need to sit back and do nothing but hold your heating pad and cry.
Do whatever you need to do. At this moment. Right now.
I wish I could end our suffering.
