listen to your body, it's smarter than you.
I haven't had a period in over 5 years.
To give you a little perspective without diving too deep into specifics - here's a short timeline to show you what happened...
2002 ▶ Started taking the birth control pill
2016 ▶ Stopped taking pill to try to get pregnant
2017 ▶ Fertility Treatments - injections
2018 ▶ Birth of Lucille
2019 ▶ Breastfeeding
2020 ▶ Breastfeeding
2021 ▶Still breastfeeding & then Hallelujah my "Red Friend" came back!
To sum it up the best I can...I was too busy DOING, that it distracted me from LISTENING.
What helped me UNRUSH my life so that I could actually LISTEN?
My unrushing resources
+ Loving my WHOLE self, no matter what
+ Acupuncture: It's basically THERAPY I go to once a month
+ Our podcast Simplified Khaos: Weekly CONVERSATIONS with my husband about our life + direction
+ My Ink + Volt Planner: Setting intention and taking tiny ACTION steps to align my life with what I VALUE
+ Reading self-care BOOKS: The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle has been life changing
+ Podcasts: Listening to inspiring STORIES of people living out their dreams
+ Leaving SPACE to listen to my own creative + original thoughts
+ Practicing GRATITUDE daily: Write 3 things I'm grateful for every day
+ Yoga at least 3 times a week before bed
+ Surrounding myself with a COMMUNITY that uplevels me: My friends + family, Instagram connections, Simplify My Meals
+ Getting out of my COMFORT ZONE to try new things
+ Appreciating the PRESENT instead of always concerning myself with what's next
I had to experiment until I got comfortable with being still and silent.
So if you're in need of inspiration, motivation, guidance or support on your journey to feel happier, more aligned and connected with yourself.
