You know TOM, right? Ugh! He’s always such a downer whenever he comes to visit. Inviting himself where he’s not wanted. Ruining vacations (remember that time he came on your trip to Paris and surprised you at the Palace of Versailles? Yeah, not cool), pool parties, and making women all over the world feel awkward and uncomfortable whenever and wherever he wants. Oh and believe me, nothing helps. You do everything you can to make him go away. You change your outfit to please him, you try to keep your cool by upping the dosage of your vitamins, or aspirin for those annoying headaches. And yet, nothing. Still horrid, painful, frustrating TOM.
Now, I’m not talking about your brother TOM, Uncle TOM, or that Starbucks Barista who constantly spells your name wrong. Oh, no. I’m talking about T.O.M, that Time Of the Month. And boy, oh boy, he is a pain!
When it comes to having your period, nothing about the idea of it is comfortable. From the bloating, cramps, mood-swings, cravings, you name it! This is why I find it so important to have the right “equipment” to easy the monthly occurrence. Personally, when it comes to TOM and my body, I’m very uptight about products I use. This goes for taking over-the-counter drugs (which I opt out of completely), heat-pads, liners, pads, tampons, etc. And with a busy, active lifestyle, I don’t have time to worry if TOM is behaving, if you catch my drift.
But, what does comfort really mean when you have to deal with the ultimate uncomfortable situation? For me, it means living my daily life just as I would, without any added stress or interruption. It means going to the gym or for a run, because I know that kick-starts my whole day (and mood!). It’s going out and buying a new lipstick. It’s surrounding myself with supportive people aka girl time! It’s wearing my favorite outfit when going out on date-night and not worrying if I look like a balloon. It’s staying on track with my eating habits, no over indulging in ice cream for this girl! It’s watching a funny movie or reading a great book #GIRLBOSS. And most importantly, it’s about being in the moment and enjoying my day-to-day life, just as I wish.
