Listening

January 15th, 2016

I’ve been buzzing along at a good pace-   checking things off my to do list left and right, plus finding myself in a better and better groove with a regular exercise routine.  In fact, I’ve resurrected my FitBit and I’ve been doing pretty good at hitting my stride of 10,000 steps (on the days that I don’t forget to put it on, or when the cat doesn’t bat it under the coffee table, sending me into a two-day frenzy to find it).     It feels good.  I’ve been eating much better, and that combined with the exercise feels great.

A couple of days though, I woke up to find that I hadn’t slept well the night before, and I didn’t feel ‘good’ at all.    It didn’t take me long to realize why-  the good ole’ peri-menopausal-show-up-whenever-you-feel-like-it ‘flow’ had showed up.   I know this may be too much information for some of you, but it’s the realities of womanhood.

Needless to say, since I struggled with major cramps, I took to bed with a hot water bottle and have listened to what my body needed, and that was to take care of myself.    At first I groaned at the idea of not getting my steps in, but rather than doing that, I embraced it for being what it is and let it go. Today was much of the same, and I’m ok with that.     I did some coloring, something that brings me great joy, plus I started watching a new show on Netflix.

Tomorrow is a new day, and I’ll spend it in the company of a good friend sharing some fun and inspiration with others.
