Keep on going.

Always.

“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,

Lisa

I’m several hours late in doing this one today, eh? Ha!

It’s been a very busy week for me, indeed. I hope that your week has been well. And if it hasn’t, I hope you know that you have the strength and support to keep going!

I know I’ve shared this quote in the past, but it strikes strong today:

“A fine glass vase goes from treasure to trash, the moment it is broken. Fortunately, something else happens to you and me. Pick up your pieces. Then, help me gather mine.”

― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

May you find peace. Be well. Have a good, ugly cry. And reach out to loved ones for help. I’m always here if you need me.

Yours,

Lisa

Feel Good Fridays!

I realize I missed out on last week’s post! My apologies!

Today, though, today marks seven years of the Bloomin’ Uterus blog. Seven years of research, answering questions, asking questions, sharing stories, and my favorite: Feel Good Fridays.

I know I don’t blog as much as I used to, and I severely miss it. Time is a precious commodity, and I hope to have more over the next 365 days.

Today’s quote? It’s for you:

“Self-care has become a new priority – the revelation that it’s perfectly permissible to listen to your body and do what it needs.”
― Frances Ryan

Whatever you are going through today, please, remember to take a moment (or two, or the entire day) to listen to your body and soul and do what needs to be done to take care of YOU.

Rest.

Be at peace.

Cry.

Laugh.

Whatever it is you need. Find some time to do it today. And tomorrow. And the next.

Much love to you,

Lisa

Feel Good Fridays

This week marked the one-year anniversary since my last Endo excision surgery and bowel resection.

It brought up a lot of “Feels”.

Anger at my body.

Gratitude toward my surgeons.

A sense of pride for pulling through.

Sadness for all of the other Warriors dealing with the same damned disease.

Love for my friends, family, and readers who have offered their continual support along this Journey.

Speaking of family, today’s quote is for my Mum:

“Sometimes I really can’t express how much I feel, but I can tell for a fact that some past years have been a victorious rollercoaster ride with God in it. Some days colourful, some days black and white, some days faith bigger than a mustard seed, other days I’m filled with blind doubt about what tomorrow holds. But in all of this, I’m beautifully me and constantly running the race through the father’s grace”
― Temitayo Olami

Because I love her. And want to remind her she is not alone. Ever.

Keep runnin’ Mom. I’m right here next to ya. Just like you always are for me.

Friday!

Already?

Is it just me or is time flying by?

Do you have any regrets this week? Something you weren’t able to do? Something you said? Or didn’t say?

“We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.”
― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

I love this quote. It reminds me that it’s okay to have made mistakes in the past, to have struggled (or continue to struggle), and to always forge ahead.

I hope that you are all doing well.

Much love,

Lisa

It’s raining outside. I love it. It smells fresh. And my plants are getting some water without me having to do it. Haha.

I’ve had a full week of medical appointments and I am utterly exhausted. So, I’m loving the weather right now. Just sort of want to sit back, sip on some tea, snuggle under a blanket, and relax.

But, I’m at work.

That’s okay, though. I can still imagine I’m under the covers with a steaming mug o’tea.

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

― Vivian Greene

Whatever you may be going through, may you find a way beyond.

Big hugs to each of you.

Love, Lisa

Good morning! I had a sleep study last night, hence the *gigantic* cup of coffee this morning.

Let’s do this!

I’m running on fumes today, but ya can’t wipe this smile off my face!

“Be a positive energy trampoline – absorb what you need and rebound more back.” — Dave Carolan

Have a wonderful weekend. Anything fun planned?

Love, Lisa
