Today, I realized that I had forgotten to order more menstrual cup cleanser and checked my period app and realized I would have to order quickly, then noticed that I have a couple drops of blood in my underwear… ugh… so with my period ready to begin later today or tomorrow even quick delivery options weren’t going to get it here on time. And suffice it to say, this isn’t the only thing not going my way right now. Preparing for Christmas is stressful. This year, I’m trying to make it less so by focusing on the weekly advent candle lighting themes. Love.
While I was in the shower, my husband went to the local corner store, didn’t see my preferred cleanser, so he had a conversation with the female pharmacist and came home with what she recommended. Then he ordered an extra stocking stuffer for me (yep, the cleanser I really wanted) and brought home a breakfast sandwich. Love.
This kind of love is only possible with education and open conversations. If you’re a menstruant, or in a relationship with one, educate yourself and be open to conversations that help you learn more about your body and your partner. Sometimes, vulnerability is worth it. Love.
