Been a minute here, I’m sorry. Really.
Project has been getting in the way and your girl was down with Typhoid & Malaria, is it just me or is malaria getting to be the order of the day? Just me?
The topic of my post is probably shocking to my friends & course mates, they know how I flow like a river and also if you’re an avid reader of this blog and have read 8 things I hate about periods.
I’m currently on my period, and I’ve been feeling good about it, yes! I have! And before you think I don’t get PMS, girl/boy I do! Last week was just about me wanting to cut off my nipples, they we’re hurting that much!
I’m someone that sees beauty in everything & I’ve decided to channel this positivity to my period. And also Kiran Gandhi is such a bad-ass, she ran the London Marathon during her period freely, she did it to raise awareness for the women who lacked access to feminine care products and crossed the finish line with blood soaked tights, how amazing!
Periods are like air, it’s here to stay, so it’s high time we start taking period like what it is, a normal thing.
It’s a natural and powerful thing, if you’ve ever been disgusted by period, do you know that it’s your mother’s blood that kept you alive for 9 months in the womb? All that power!
I am tired of menstruation being looked at like a disease, I once read an article about a woman that died because she was suppressing her periods.
Every woman bleeds from their vagina, get over it.
Let’s get to the juicy part
They just had to be the first, girlllsss, y’all know what I’m talking about!.. When the boobies get Fuller and super pretty, asides the pains that comes with even air touching one’s nipples, I want to keep them forever.
During PMS and periods, we have lower estrogen and serotonin levels, which often causes our mood to drop. This drop in serotonin makes me become easily irritated, I clean everywhere and evaluate everything in my life.
From why I like yellow to why I’m friends with this person.
Periods are the perfect moment for one to reflect in ones life because our intuition is at it’s highest. Dr. Julie Holland writes in her book Moody Bitches. “The thoughts and feelings that come up during this phase of your cycle are real;
If you have not been taking advantage of your heightened intuition (periods super powers), you definitely should.
If you’re not feeling comfortable with who you’re with or what you’re doing, don’t think it’s because of your period and just let it slide, chances are you’re not in the right place.
Workout becomes more effective
This is something I’ve noticed personally, I get more noticeable results than when I’m not on my period. period time = gym time. Because the estrogen & progesterone levels drop, making me access carbohydrates /glycogen easily.
I read one time that women on their period are more likely to get ACL injuries than men, so you want to be careful.
Also workout reduces cramps for me, does it for you?
It gives me an excuse to be a nightmare
I can literally shoot some one and be like my bad, I’m on my period, break someone’s face, that’s what I do when I’m on my period, steal someone’s man.. I like them darker when I’m flowing.
Was that dry? I was trying to drop a joke, my friends think I’m dry.
But really, my lecturers are males and that excuse has been saving your girl since day one!
Makes me feel more feminine & reminds me that I’m a woman, a WOMAN.. like I have a world to protect, like I can control the stars and the moon.. I don’t know how else to explain
Excuse to eat, eat & eat!
I get really bloated and I think it’s supposed to make me not want to eat much but it’s the opposite, I eat, eat & eat… When i’m not hungry, I eat… Blame it on the period
It connects everyone
You will have stories to share – the conversation about periods is one that can never end. no matter where you’re from, your skin color, it’s something that can unite us and make us laugh at each other at the same damn time!
It’s time we take periods as our monthly reminders; to rest, spoil ourselves & detox, two days of writing this post, I’ve stained my bed-sheet and my outfits but I’ve also taken some serious decisions with the people in my life, look at the beauty in the madness. will you?
Dig deep and tell me what you love about your period, what do we have in common? i want to know
Talk to you later sugar
