Ah, the joys of being a woman are many. But there is a moment each month where we might drop to our knees or throw our head in our hands and ask, okay scream, "WHY GOD WHYYYY!?" The world seems to be against beautiful you, the walls feel crumbly and all you want is for someone (everyone) to understand and tend to you, beautiful you - all day. But, alas, we get dressed and tend our jobs. We might have a little challenge but we do our jobs - cramps included, like an uphill climb - all day. NBD
CUE: Tiffany - I Think We're Alone Now
Every woman is different. So SO SO SO different. But we can all have a little connectivity over this one thing. Notice I did not say sympathy.
By request - here is the first video of the Yoga for Women series: Yoga Poses for Menstrual Cramps. A special ladies only yoga and forum that can CONNECT us and assist you in tending to the body during your time of the month. It is so important to take the time to feel supported, listen to the wisdom of the body and counteract any toxicity brought by PMS or other heightened stress.
This video invites you to slow it down. Set it up and feel the support. Then... breathe lady, you deserve this time.
As my friend (not in person friends yet- but one can dream, right?) Ru Paul would say,
"If you can't love yourself, then how in the hell are you going to love somebody else? Can I get an amen?"
