When I walked in I was in pain. I was tight and I was holding tension. I wasn’t in tune with what was happening in the bottom half of my body.
My cycle came yesterday. How fitting, one of the bigger days I’ve been anticipating and holding on for – her two year birthday.
I’ve been sitting with this idea that it should somehow be perfectly, exactly, wonderfully 28 days long. I have been holding on to that thought for a long time. The reality that it might be 50 to 60 days just doesn’t always seem like something I can sink myself into. I’ve been trying for so long to morph my body into this perfect mold of what a cycle should look like and feel like.

It was a feast and one I am proud to say I had a hand in cooking. Along with my daughter, my husband, one of my best friends and one of my newest friends.

It’s a moment where all gets tight in your chest and where you really don’t want to mess anything up because you can kind of just see all the good stuff peaking around the corner.
A few things that help to keep me grounded during times like these:
