I know, I know I’m supposed to be relaxing but I just wanted to say hi so I don’t die of relaxing ( is that a thing? I feel like I’m on to something with that one ).

SO!! HI!!

Firstly, your well wishes from this post legit made me cry. I’m not a big cryer but the advice & compassion coming from you guys is WILD, I couldn’t help feeling really emotional. I’ve never experienced such a positive, loving community. It makes me so happy to have readers like you guys. I’d rather have 10 readers like YOU than 1 million, anyday.

I took a lot of tips from your comments.

Some of you recommended floatation therapy, others recommended arnica, ice roller treatment, acupuncture, meditation, & then some of you even recommended: SLEEP. I’ll try everything at this point.

Since I needed to get somewhat creative without going stir crazy, I made brown butter Rice Krispies on Sunday…total soul food ( especially when they’re warm ). You guys also recommended some INSANE Netflix TV shows via Instagram. We settled on Bloodline & White Collars with a list of many more to watch after those!

Just wanted to say: THANK YOU. THANK YOU for understanding. THANK YOU for having compassion. THANK YOU for following along on this journey. THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY.

Today was my third surgery. It was 30 minutes & the goal was to get rid of the rest of the infection. Today I took a 3 hour nap ( RARE! ), made an acai bowl, & read. So see? I’m trying to relax! Really, really trying.

Ok, that’s that. I’m off to rest more. Since Michael & I are having such an obsession with the book, The Cartel, we’ve now resorted to watching documentaries on the subject. Watching ( & reading ) the horrific-ness that goes on in Mexico makes me feel grateful & lucky. It really puts hard times in perspective; from here on out, I do not want to complain about my jaw struggle. It’s simply a big, difficult wave but it will pass.

& I will be just fine.

Thank you for making me feel so lucky! LOVE YOU ALL, x lauryn

+ again, if you were planning to attend the Create & Cultivate event to see me speak, please e-mail me! So bummed I had to cancel, but I’ll speak at their next event.

    Glad you’re finally taking some time to just relax! I hope the third surgery went well and I wish you a speedy recovery (which will only come from listening to your own body)!! Can’t wait to see that dress on you once you’re feeling better. Sending positive, healing vibes your way.

    Everyone needs a little love and encouragement every once in a while. Even fabulous babes like yourself. I remember when you did the post on everything not being perfection like a blog makes it seem – but that the blog is meant to be a beautiful space to muse on all things delightful…I think it is really real and amazing of you to share with your following on the temporary struggle you are going through right now – I had to put that temporary in there to remind you ;). It takes balls and trust to open up like you have and I think your community loves you even more for that. I know my respect level went up a notch. Like damn, this girl is genuine. But then I already knew that from emailing you directly and getting a response like I was a regular bestie. Thank you for always keeping it real and please know that even when you are recovering from jaw surgery you are an inspiration and motivation to so many <3 x

      Hi Caitlin! You have no idea how much I appreciate your comment <3 Like, your support is everything right now! Thank you :)) It's definitely an intense recovery process and I wasn't originally anticipating having to get multiple surgeries. Oh well, this too shall pass! I appreciate how nice all of you are being about my not so perfect moments lately! I love you guys! xx <3

    You mentioned someone recommended flotation therapy? Like one of those isolation tank things? I just read about those and have wanted to try it. I thought about suggesting it on your last post but decided not to since I hadn’t personally experienced it yet. If you do, pleaaase do a post on it!! But only after you’re better, of course! 🙂 Keep relaxing and feel better soon!!

    so glad you like The Cartel. Don Winslow is my favorite author and the only reason I know about his newest book is from you and now I can’t wait to read it!
