For so many of us, it’s been a Journey. And the Journey continues. We must push on. Ever onward. Together.
“Butterflies are beautiful, but the process of emerging from the chrysalis and spreading your wings can hurt like fucking hell. But still, you will survive the transformation (over and over again) and you will fly. Remember this when it hurts the most. This is the metamorphosis, the going down to liquid, and the rising again. It’s no joke – but damn, it’s one hell of a journey.” ― Jeanette LeBlanc
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
