Love Yourself

Hello, my name is Hormone and I am filling in for Allison today.

Okay not really, but let's just pretend for a split second that I'm not completely an emotional wreck. These IVF hormones aren't joking around. I've been totes-magotes emo and super sentimental lately. I am pretty sure that I'm annoying everyone that I come in contact with. It's mostly because anything and everything makes me tear up OR makes me sound really cheesy. 
For instance, my colleague and her newborn stopped by to see us at work, and I pretty much cried (but not literally... just inside my heart) after she left because I kept thinking to myself, "he is seriously so perfect, and a gift from Heaven." It was neat holding a miracle. I love that God sends us little reminders of all that He is capable of!

On a Blog-tember note, and because I'm feeling an overwhelming sense of cheesiness, I declare that all y'all should list out (in my comment section) a thing or two that you love about yourself! Plus... that just so happens to be today's prompt for Blogtember, so I will join in on the fun too.

1. I love... the way my hair volumizes very easily, despite having extremely thin hair.
2. I love... my organization skills.
3. I love... that I smile a lot.
4. I love... that the little things in life mean the most to me.
5. I love... that people can trust me.
6. I love... that I'm an 'open book'.
7. I love... that I believe in a scripture-based marriage.
8. I love... my HTML skills.
9. I love... my ability to memorize song lyrics rather quickly.
10. I love... that I have big brown eyes.

Now that all is said and done, I have a final sentimental (and hormone-induced) thought to leave you with:
If that's not the creepiest thing in the world, then by golly, I don't know what is. But the point is: love yourself!


  1. Ha, I love Wreck it Ralph!!!

    I love that I'm caring and compassionate. I love that friends see me as supportive. I love that I'm optimistic and can find the silver lining in almost anything.

    Lil miracles are amazing!

  2. Aww! I love all of those things about you, too! Something to add to yours -- you always know how to make people feel important when you talk to them! Super cool characteristic that not many people have.

    Oh, and I'm going to need to enroll in Mrs. Skinner's Hair Tips 101 to figure out how to get some of that volume :)

  3. WRECK IT RALPH--- yessss!!! ;) Loving yourself is so important- I'm bad about beating myself up over little things sometimes!

  4. Hang in there, lady! Those hormones be cray, but it'll be worth it in the end :) Until then, just cry it all out.

    I love how motivated I am in the things I choose to pursue. And I love my love for Pixar movies, lol!

  5. Seriously LOVE wreck it Ralph haha that gif is perfect.

    What do I love about myself? That I'm an uplifting person. I try to always find the joy in every situation.

  6. You got this, it'll be over soon enough :)

    I love how I can be uber quiet but go to bat for anyone that deserves it. It always shocks people like, "oh she talks". So along with that, I'm honest & trustworthy.

  7. You are the cutest! I love your positive attitude!

  8. Praying for you, sweet girl! And how appropriate that today's prompt was about loving yourself. God is so good!

    I'm totally bad about loving myself, especially with what's going on, but I love that I'm doing pretty darn well for my situation! :) And am closer to God than I was before, which is huge for me!


  9. Just found your blog through the link up. Love your list :) I like having good (big) hair too!! Except in this ridiculous Texas heat. :(

  10. Praying for your treatments and that you will be blessed with our own little miracle one day!

  11. I wish I had a little more in the way of HTML skills!

  12. I found you through the link up! I love big hair too!!
