Blood Read Wine

About a month ago I had found my self fallen ill with pregnancy. Yes that is right. The next chapter in my life was about to begin.

While for most this is a very uplifiting time full of hope, there was bright red blood, blood, and more blood.

Ew. I promise there will not be any more gory details morning forward.

Carrying on. So like many I turned to my doctor, but primarily the internet. When we are experiencing a symptom, uncertainty, or even a pondering pinterest seems to have all the answers. Well the answers I was receiving was “Miscarriage”


While my heart sunk, I kept searching. There are many raw and emotional stories out their about loss and if you have or are experiencing that loss I send you all my love. But we need more stories of HOPE. What we focus on, we get more of. Now that will not heal any losses, but I KNOW there are more stories out there with happy endings and we need to celebrate those.

So as for me, I am still with child. I have had all the blood work and scans to confirm it.. for now.. but I just want you to know that if you are worried or scared what might be coming, turn to hope and your affirmations. Then share all of the joy and goodness you were blessed with!!

While I do not have family or close friends that read my blog.. if you are a family or friend that has happened upon it.. Keep this information to yourself!

How Do You Define Success

So when I get the above question, from now I am saying that Success cannot be defined. We use the word success as if its a trophy. One that is always out of reach. We pin this word to other people hoping we could one day compare. Instead of all the synonyms like accomplishment of achievement, I plan to reframe this word as “content”. If we are happy or even content with our progress and our achievements, then we are successful.

What Doesn’t Kill You

Strength is more than mental resilience, but the courage to leap, knowing you will fall and it will suck, but you could be one step closer. As I embark on the infamous IVF journey, I hope to keep my HOPE strong, and share with you how my endometriosis, mindfulness, and strength will persevere.

Communal Healing- Acupuncture

Today I write with the most beautiful community I have found. There are doctors out there who care more for their patients than loading up the insurance charges to pocket as much as possible. I have discovered the world of community acupuncture and man, is it spirited.
