I love to see the menopause talked about in the media. I was asked to share my story and experience with the early menopause for The Sun readers. I’ve always been very open and honest with what I went through as I want other women who are going through the same thing to feel that they are not alone.
Unfortunately some media coverage isn’t always positive. We are led to believe that menopause is the end of life as we know it and we fall into a state of menopausal decline. Like we fall off the hormonal cliff. Which is kind of true but more about that another time.
My mission and passion is to encourage women to talk openly about the menopause, getting older and what that really means to women.
Without sounding too cliche I do feel like a different women post menopause. And I feel ok with that now but it’s taking a lot of soul searching to get to where I am. I’ve been delving much deeper into my psyche and opening my eyes and ears to new teachings and teachers.
I’ve spent a lot of time researching hormones, nutrition and fitness and yes they play a massive role in our overall well being but there’s more…..oh so much more!!
I’ve been getting in touch with my femininity, I was living an over dominant masculine life. Lots of hard training, strict eating regimes, having over-bearing male mentors and living in my head. My Yin was hiding!
So I’m learning more about how my feelings feel, witnessing my moods and embracing the mother in me. I’ve also been researching my sexuality and sensuality (my kind of research :-))
Lots of change and shifts for me just now and it feels a bit scary but I know I need to do the work to get me to the next level.
