Thank you to everyone’s kind comments and support from last week’s weekend update. I’ve decided to look at the bright side of these fibroids and am grateful that it’s a wake-up call to take care of my health more. In an effort to shrink the fibroids I’m laying off the booze and red meat (which the internet tells me can lead to fibroids/fibroid growth). And because of that, I’m feeling overall quite healthy. Maybe this is just the start for me to eat more of a plant-based diet.
Starting next week I’ll be in Hawaii with Emi for a month. She’ll finally meet her paternal grandmother and great-grandmother, along with all my uncles, aunties and cousins. I’m also going to spend several weeks clearing a lifetime of my dad’s clutter. But first I have to pack (I’ll spare you a packing list post because do people really read those kinds of posts? I don’t because obvi we just pack what we need to pack from the things we have available). We also need to get through a 5 hour plane ride. I’m trying not to be too anxious about it because I don’t want Emi to sense that anxiety when we get on the plane. Luckily we spoiled ourselves by buying Emi her own seat because neither of us wanted to hold a 20-pound (yes 20 lbs!), squirming 6-month old for 5 hours (even with taking turns).
Anyway this is all to say my scheduled posts are running out and there might be some radio silence over on the blog. But I’ll try to keep up with my insta-stories (because who doesn’t want to insta-story a Hawaii trip lol).
P.S. Have you guys seen The Mind Explained on Netflix yet? I loved all the episodes and it reminded me I need to pick up my meditation practice again.
