“In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”― Gordon B. Hinckley

Getting your period sucks. Or, let me rephrase that, for most people -- errrr women -- on the planet, getting your period sucks.

I actually feel super blessed to have a regular cycle now because for most of my life I was amenorrheac because I was a competitive tennis player and an intense athlete.

So yeah, I feel blessed; however, now I understand why women say it sucks.

So. I decided I was going to reframe the whole thing. I learned that years ago women's menstrual cycles were synced around the moon cycle. In fact they were not called "periods," but "moon cycles." So I made the decision to sync my cycle around the full moon.  Why not get all the craziness over with at one time?

It worked the first month. The incredible power of intention and focus.

Then, it came to me – I don't know how most of these things come to me but they just do – to put all of my tampons in a cute basket. Think Halloween and trick-or-treating.  Associations are real and so important.

So instead of grabbing for that ugly tampon box on the full moon I would grab for a cute basket, which by the way makes me feel super organized which makes me happy. And remember, it's all about being happy.

So on Wednesday (the full moon) when I grabbed in the cabinet for that basket, I smiled. It reminded me of trick-or-treating, which ain't too far off.

Have the best day ever!
