Sometimes all you can do is hold on tight.

But know that you’re not alone. We’re holding on tight together, side-by-side. Some are ready to catch ya if you fall. And others, ready to hoist you up if you need a hand.

We are a mighty force of friends, Warriors, and a family.

Much love to you.

Whatever you may be enduring. We are all here for you.

What are you needing to let go of? And do you have the strength to do so? Far easier said than done.

“The key to being able to let go of all the stuff you’re holding on to is knowing that you’ll be okay if you don’t have it.

And that’s the truth.

You can survive with very little. And though the passing of people and things can be painful, you will survive.” ~John C. Parkin

Happy end of the week. It’s Friday.

I hope you had a wonderful week.

Mine was a bit painful, and yesterday it really took over. So I took a sick day off from work, popped 1/2 a Tramadol, and slept the day away in a cocoon of unawareness and no-pain.

Sometimes its’s what we must do. I barely remember waking up to use the restroom or kiss my husband. And have no idea what we ate for dinner last night.

But…sometimes it’s what we must do.

“Sometimes I like to sleep all day. It’s nice to just sort of drift, in and out of yourself.”

― Cameron Hogg

Never ever cheat yourself from what you have to do to even bring yourself one iota of relief. And, gah – I hope you have something in your life that does.

We suffer enough.

Have a beautiful weekend.

A lot of people I know, myself included, have had a rough week.

I want to take a moment to remind you (and myself) to take a deep breath, close your eyes, and tell yourself “everything will be okay.”

Find a reason to smile today. A legitimate one.

I spent my entire drive to work today on the phone with my best friend. And it was glorious.

Big hugs to you all.

Much love,

Oh my god, how many weeks has it been since I’ve posted one of these?

I am so sorry.

There has been so much going on that has taken my focus from not only the blog, but from you.

I hope that you’re doing as well as you can be.

Today’s quote is for anyone enduring their own storms:

“Storms don’t come to destroy you, they come to cleanse you. Lean into it and learn to fly in the storm!”

― Sanjo Jendayi

Whatever you may need, may you reach out and find it. And if talking is what you so desire, reach out to me or any of your friends and family.

Be well. This too shall pass.

Good morning. Happy New Year! I took a few weeks of personal care and relaxation. I hope this finds you well.

Despite having felt mostly well for quite a while, I recently had two very bad pain flare days. I haven’t had my period since October (again, my docs think I’m starting menopause), but I feel like my body still goes through the motions.

We’ll see what today brings.

I have a very good friend who is going through her own pain (not Endometriosis, but oh so much pain), and has been reading. One coping mechanism she has learned is replacing the word “pain” with “bananas.” So when we talk, I try to honor that, and it’s fun. And when I was dying yesterday an the day before, I kept thinking of ‘naners.

What do you do to cope? Do you have a favorite mantra? Prayer? Self-care ritual?

Keep on going.


“Ever notice the word ‘rough’ in through? There is truth to that, though the way may be rough, we are still able to get through it.”

― Anthony Liccione

I know we’re all going through one thing or another; and some of us are enduring the same things. But we all must continue to move forward. Ask for help. Walk together.

I’m here if you need me.

Good morning!

Today’s quote is an instant reminder, even to myself:

“Reconnect to what makes you happy and brings you joy. if there is something that used to make you happy which you have stopped doing, do it again. Seek to find deeper meaning and significance rather than living on the surface.” ~Susan C. Young

May you find joy in even the tniiest of things.

Be well.
Love, Lisa

Good morning, Readers and Friends.

Today’s quote is just a quick reminder to yourselves. And I’m pretty sure I’ve used it in the past, but I feel I need to say it again today.

It’s one my cousin, Aaron, whispers to me every time we get to hug:

“You be good to you.” ~Aaron

Please, remember, be kind to yourself. Be patient. Be understanding. Allow yourself those dark moments if you need them. Have an ugly cry in the shower. Or a good laugh. Whatever it may be: treat yourself with the respect and love you deserve.

Much love to you,
