Spring into Confidence

March 2014, FounderHappy Spring … my favorite season of the year! Flowers are peeking up through the soil, birds are chirping, and animals are emerging from “hibernation mode.” There’s new life in the air.

After such a long and brutal winter, I’m excited to see what new adventures await.

At Ostomysecrets®, we want to encourage you to Spring into Confidence. Maybe that means trying something new, like, taking a hike or jumping into the ocean or jetting off to some exciting new destination.

Or, it may mean getting out for the very first time with your ostomy and having the confidence to manage a new situation. Wherever you are and whatever you do, do it fearlessly!

In February, I was honored to speak at the 40th anniversary event of the Metro Maryland Ostomy Support Group. What a great group of people! Not only do they support one another, but they exude a love for each other that creates a real sense of community. Their level of caring made me realize that Community = Confidence.

With that thought, I encourage you to become part of the Inspire community. If you don’t have a support group in your area, Inspire is an amazing online community that welcomes you and provides support and information. Check out the webinar held by Ostomysecrets® earlier this month with the Inspire Ostomy Community. We will continuing the conversation from this webinar with valuable and practical information on living with an ostomy in the second part of our webinar series. Please save the date - Wednesday, March 14th at 1 ET. Check back for registration details.

Lastly, thanks to everyone who has supported the Ostomy Awareness Ribbon campaign that we profiled last month. To date, almost 1,000 ribbons have been sent out. Check them out on Facebook and get your ribbon today!

That’s it for this month. Get out there, Spring into Confidence, and enjoy each day you have been given.
