Sometimes growing feels like dying.

Hell, maybe it always feels like that.

Unfreeze some part of your soul and suddenly you feel every little bump, cry three times a week.  You start feeling like the Princess and the Pea, the uber-sensitive soul who had to sleep on 100 mattresses and still could feel a small tiny pea at the bottom of it all.

You start talking in the third person again.

Or maybe you're just going through early menopause.  Either way, an expectation that life should be easy is one you need to put aside on this journey, otherwise you'll just keep on tripping over it, over and over again.


  1. Yes and yes. I definitely know what you speak of. Here's hoping those bumps don't turn into bruises.

  2. yep, life was never meant to be easy baby
    and perimenopause is so-o-o proof of that!#*&@?!

  3. I'm not sure it's just menopause, Sue, as I went through something like this, on and off, for a few years. I tend to think it's something waking up in us, yawning and stretching... and sometimes getting cramp:) Oh, and I think life is meant to be easy, but we just make it harder by our uninformed responses to reality. Until we become informed. But I'm just insufferably positive;)

  4. Yep. Ya got this right, sista!

  5. Lessons hard won, but their truth resonates. I'm hearing you.
