This video is thrilling! The reason, maybe not so thrilling, but it sure was one hell of an exciting moment for me! I kind of glazed over the reason due to my excitement, because…well, frankly, who really wants to harp on their period?
SO, ONTO DERBY!
SUPER exciting!!! I got my half-way there reward tattoo, a pair of skates, and I got my helmet all tricked out!
EXCITING <3 <3 <3
Half way to my goal, and I got my tattoo, a set of skates, and my helmet was looking legit! So many things that I had wanted were coming into my life!
“What I really appreciate about this journey is feeling it here and here…and making the connection that I’m allowed to have this…it’s going to happen.”
“I don’t know where we’re going, but it’s going to be amazing.”
Not just pertaining to my ovaries and female parts, but what’s going on in my mind, in my spiritual connections.
This journey is all about finding that self-love, that dignity to accept who I am and allow her to be her full, authentic self. That meant shedding the thoughts, ideas, and habits that were limiting me. Those thoughts stressed me out, how I allowed myself to be treated impacted my stress levels. It was stress, after all, that jacked up my menstrual cycle.
There has only been one instance since hitting my goal that my period’s timing was off, and it was when I was going through an unbearable work situation, specifically the environment.
That’s a whole different Smashing Success Story, but just like my healthy lifestyle transition it has a happy ending 🙂
