Love is giving someone the ability to destroy you, but trusting them not to

Happiness depends upon ourselves.

Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story.

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. Happiness is a direction, not a destination.

Thank you for existing. Be happy, be free, believe, forever young.

You know my name, not my story.

You have heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through.

Love is like glass, looks so lovely, but it’s easy to shatter.

Love is rare, life is strange, nothing lasts and people change.

Life is only bad if you make it bad.

Remember that life is full of ups and downs, without the downs the ups don’t mean anything.

I’m waiting to fall in love with someone I can open my heart to.

Love is not about who you can see spending your future with, it’s about who you can’t see spending your life without.

Life is a game for everyone, but love is the only prize.

Every day is special, so make the most of it. You could get a life-ending illness tomorrow so make the most of every day.

Be Honest with Yourself:

If you’ve tried a more loving approach to sharing what hurts in your relationship, and the narcissist in your life still won’t soften, you truly have done everything you can.

Endometriosis: Why it is important to keep weight OFF!!
1. Storage For Toxins: The toxins we accumulate in our diets and within our environment accumulate in our bodies fat cells. The more toxins we have, the more it will affect our hormone imbalance.
2. Overworked Liver: The liver is very closely related to our hormone levels and ultimately our Endometriosis developing further. When our livers become overworked, it is less able to flush out excess hormones and regulate what is already there. Hormone flushing can go on the back burner depending on weight.
3. Body At Full Optimum: Excess weight is placing strain on your body. This is naturally going to affect every organ that directly and indirectly relates to Endometriosis. To heal your body, you need to get it working properly. All of it and not just the Endometriosis part. That means giving it the very best chance of healing itself.

"I think when tragic things happen, it is on the surface. It’s like the ocean. On the surface a wave comes, and sometimes the wave is very serious and strong. But it comes and goes, comes and goes, and underneath the ocean always remains calm. Tibetans have a saying: “If bad news comes you listen here” (points to right ear) “and let it out here.” (points to left ear)"

Endometriosis: That Moment When…

I love being a photographer. The experiences can be extremely magical sometimes. No matter how hard it can be, endometriosis can’t keep me down. I am a professional photographer. I photograph birth stories…The whole story in its entirety…. from pregnancy photo sessions, to being on call to go to the emergency room and photograph the birth, to photographing and holding a sweet baby. I get to bond with the families through the whole process and document the most intimate moments known to human kind. I cry after holding each baby born. It never fails I cry afterwards haha. Just seeing the joy on the parents faces, hearing the coos and cries, the innocence brought into the world. If I cannot bring a baby into the world, I will happily document the bringing of someone else’s baby into the world. It’s truly beautiful. (and not as scary as it sounds) Birth stories healed my heartache. I thank God for that and to be a part of these special moment forever.

ENDometriosis: Feeling Good

My fiancé and I desperately needed a weekend away… Far away and alone together… with no stress, no schedule, no work, no worries… just plain and simple happiness.

Work has been overwhelming for both of us. Life had become stressful so what better what to de-stress than say “screw everything and everyone WE ARE TAKING A WEEKEND OFF!!!” Sooo we rented a cabin in the middle of a forest far away and booked reservations for the last day to go out with a bang by 3 hours of zip lining? This weekend was much needed and completely spontaneous. I didn’t let Endo bother me a bit. Not one bit. We cut off everyone and just enjoyed each other. It was… Beyond wonderful. Make the best of the days you got. It’s totally worth it I promise.

"Life is too short to…. wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who will treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

“Don’t grow up,” you’ll whisper teasingly in his ear. “Stay six forever.” “I have to grow up, Mommy,” he’ll chuckle. “I can’t stop this growing!” Knowing this, you will smush your cheek up against his and inhale the faint baby scent that remains in his hair. You will sing to him at bedtime and tell him you love him so so so very much, and as you do these things, you’ll hear a wistful voice in your head reminding you that he’s the last one, the very last one, and there won’t be another.

When you picture the last one in your mind, he’ll always be running ahead of you and you’ll be trying your best to keep up, your heart bursting with mingled joy and despair. With each day that passes, the ribbon of childhood will feel like it’s unwinding too quickly before you and you’ll feel powerless to stop it, and as your youngest child abandons picture books for ones with chapters and leaves home for his first sleepover and demands that the training wheels be removed from his bicycle, you will be struck hard, repeatedly, by the fact that this most amazing time in your life is slipping away from you, bit… by bit… by bit.
