Why I Horse Around | My Visit with Kathy K. Taylor

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments
Until there are physical or relational symptoms, you and I don't always realize how we're pained or blocked emotionally. That's one reason I love to horse around... ...and couldn't wait to when I visited my friend Kathy. As she says in her TEDxUTA talk: "Horses are 100% honest, 100% of the time." From the moment Kathy and I began my session, I knew this wouldn't be like any other type of therapeutic experience I've had so...

Former “Other Woman” Warns Adulteresses Everywhere

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments
Being the "other woman" in a married man's affair was one of the most powerful and painful experiences of my life so far. If, after looking at my photo, you're surprised -- that I don't "look like" someone who could have had an affair -- then you've seen too many of those cheesy made-for-TV movies. I don't own red lipstick. I don't live in lingerie. And I wasn't prowling for a married man when our 6-month relationship began....

Dear Endometriosis, Thank You

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments

Dear Endometriosis, When we first met, I don’t think I could have imagined saying these two words to you, but: Thank you. (I’m not kidding. I’m not being sarcastic.) I may not have picked you. But God has purposed you. You have become one of my greatest motivators. If it weren’t for you, I don’t think I would have: Honestly evaluated where my life was — and where it was heading unless I made personal…

How Would I Pay for Another Surgery?!

By | Wellness & Chronic Illness | No Comments
Welcome to my life with Stage IV endometriosis. This month, I'll find out if another surgery is in my near(er) future. That would bring me to four surgeries since October 2016. That's nothing: I've met women with endometriosis who are in the double digits. It's only been six months since my third surgery: a hysterectomy. (Hysterectomy is not a cure for endometriosis. Especially not Stage IV.) But whether ultrasound, first, or surgery (or both), it's all...

Having a Hysterectomy: 7 Silver Linings

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments
Choosing, having, and healing from a hysterectomy is serious. But one thing that's helping me since mine, is to notice "silver linings" that help lighten (up) the load:   1. No more periods. Ladies, need I say more?! (LOL) 2. Bring on the white pants. Bought my first pair of white pants in years; I no longer worry about breakthrough bleeding. 3. Commandokay! I've never gone "commando" so much in my adult life, as I have since my...

The #1 Thing to NOT Say to a Friend with Endometriosis

By | Wellness & Chronic Illness | No Comments
I was diagnosed with Stage IV endometriosis in October 2016. Since then, I've noticed some recurring themes in things people say. (But maybe shouldn't.) I think they mean well. And it doesn't upset me. This is just an observation that I'm noticing can impede some important education or connection. Endometriosis is quite common. But also quite misunderstood -- or missed altogether.  So let's inspire a better conversation. To provide greater education. And to foster healing connection. (This is me in October...

Since I Cheated, Will I Be Cheated On?

By | Daily Encouragement | 2 Comments
This morning, I woke up to a great question from a Facebook follower: So how about it? Since I've been the "other woman" in a married man's affair. . . . . .is marriage no longer in God's "cards" for my life? Or. . . . . .am I destined (doomed, more like it) to have an "other woman" affect my future marriage? Here's my answer: 0 Rebecca Halton is the author of Words from the Other...
