Another week has come and gone. The year is almost half-over. And I just want to know: how are you doing?
If not well, what’s your favorite coping mechanism? What gets you through a tough minute? Hour? Day? Week? Existence?
“In all my years, I’ve learned that life delivers many storms for us to weather. Some will be slow, brooding, quiet beasts, and others will be loud, thunderous, and frightening. But if you’re willing to look close enough, no matter how devastating the storm may be, after the rain you’ll always find new life sprouting in the aftermath.”
What sort of victories or road blocks have you faced this week? Are you hanging in there? Need anything?
I hope this finds you well.
And may we all be here to help and lift each other up.
“Sometimes life is hard … so we have to squeeze it, touch it, play with it, and make it soft like a dough! Now it’s soft enough to be shaped in any way we want! Keep moving, touching life, as this will keep it smooth and fun!” ― Karina Fonseca Azevedo
Today is one month since my seventh Endometriosis-related surgery (excision, adhesion removal, and supracervical hysterectomy). When I have the time (and a smidge more information) I cannot wait to share all of the details with you.
But today is not that day.
Do you know what today is, though?
It’s the day you’re getting a virtual hug from me…!
“Don’t give up when dark times come. The more storms you face in life, the stronger you’ll be. Hold on. Your greater is coming.” ― Germany Kent
Today, think better. Not only of yourself, but with any negativity.
Let’s turn things around, one wee thought at a time
“My challenge to you today is to observe your thoughts and internal dialogue and recognize if and when you speak poorly to yourself. We all have moments of self-deprecation and very often we are too hard on ourselves. Today, start to be caring and supportive of yourself. Observe that little voice in your head and say something positive to yourself instead!”
You know what day it is. And you know what that means!
“Life teaches us to
Bend like the willow during a storm
Glide like an eagle
Under the sun mighty and warm
But to stand together
No matter the weather
Unity is all for the better”
― Marie Helen Abramyan
And speaking of together: what are you doing on March 26th? Feel like donning some yellow and going for a walk? Due to the ongoing Covid-19 concerns, we’re not encouraging group gatherings, but go for a walk with us, snap a pick, blast it on your social media or drop it here so we can share it.
