Feel Good Fridays

Another week has passed. It’s Friday! Already. October is almost over. Do you have any fun fall plans?

Today’s quote brought tears to my eyes and a lump to my throat.

This one is for you who suffer, you who push, you who continue to move forward.

“There’s a remarkable amount of strength residing in those who move forward without being able to physically move. Ones that carry the weight of illness or a disability, they battle wars most know nothing about. They are the true warriors of the world, the ones who have every reason to quit but never do.”

― Nikki Rowe

Whatever the battle or weight you carry, keep fighting. Even if that means staying in bed to recoup, or take a day of rest, or ask friends for help: fight. Always.

Love, Lisa

Well, I’m writing this to you early since I’ll be away on Friday (getting ready for our April 1st wedding!!!!!!!)…so here’s to hoping the “schedule” functions works correctly and this posts Friday morning 🙂

This Friday’s quote is by Australian author, Nikki Rowe, inspired by my great long weekend with my Mom in town; being with family; being amidst nearly 100 EndoSisters, family, friends, and strangers; and a general thought that needs to spread like wildfire:

“I don’t want fleeting friendships or relationships or passion in life, give me fleeting moments in coffee shops and walks by the water but I will never be satisfied with empty kinships that are fleeting & undecided. Those connections are what make us all human and I dare not settle my wild little heart for something of so little depth.”

Have a GLORIOUS weekend!  Spend it with those people that matter most to you.  Rekindle old relationships that may have fallen stagnant.  Evaluate those that may be toxic to your life.  Grasp onto the meaningful and loved friendships.Find your passions and pursue them, overcome with madness and a desire to achieve.  But most importantly?  Find those qualities deep within yourself first…love who you are, or who you can become.
