The Hardest Thing About Menopause

The hardest thing about menopause varies from woman to woman but for me it’s that I don’t recognize myself, anymore. I think that’s also a part of the aftermath of breast cancer, too.

Life-changing events can change everything from how you feel and think to how you look and what matters to you.

Menopause is a normal part of a woman’s lifecycle. Blah Blah Blah. It doesn’t feel normal, at all.

I lose things. I forget things. I have insomnia. I look terrible most days. My patience is short (but mostly with myself). My brain checks out without warning. The gray hairs are piling up.

My skin is dry. My energy isn’t what it used to be. It seems I’ve lost the ability (or interest) to do some of the things I’ve always been great at. The list goes on.

The good news is other women who have already gone through the menopause tunnel tell me it gets better!

In case you’re right there with me, the one thing that has helped me, lately, is exercising. I’ve been more consistent with it than I’ve been in a long time. It feels good, too. It helps with my concentration, posture and mood. It takes me back to better days.

Speaking of consistency…if you’re having trouble reaching your personal goals, be sure to check back because in my next post I’ll share the one thing that’s helped me to achieve goals despite the setbacks.

Thanks for being, here. Stay safe. 🙂
