Do you take the time to look inside yourself, to know who you really are? I remember one day, looking into the mirror & I couldn’t recognize myself. Endometriosis has changed my life & was a part of that reason but, somewhere along the way, I had also forgotten who I was, what I liked, what I was capable of.
After talking to Dr. Lorne Brown at Acubalance Wellness Centre, I really began to look at myself, my life, from the minute I came into this world up until the present. I have & am still discovering so much about myself & why I feel/act the way I do. I am taking the time to get to know myself again & the parts of me that have always been but I had unknowingly shut out.
I know Endo, Adeno, essentially any chronic illness, changes a person. But does anybody else feel that this illness has shown them who they really are? What really makes them happy? What is worth their time & energy? But more importantly, how strong they are?
Because I’ve been looking around me & I’ve been seeing some #chronicillnesswarriors loving themselves, remembering who they are & everything they are capable of.
Love this post by Butterfliesandpebbles; such a great reminder to look at who we are & love that person.
