I'm not going crazy

If you are feeling on edge, irritable, moody, perhaps like you're going crazy, and having menopausal symptoms, talk to your doctor. Estrogen is stored in fat.

Is your tank empty?

So often we spend much of our time and energy doing for others. We need to remember to always take time for ourselves. If we don't, we'll run out of gas. It doesn't have to be hours. A soak in the tub or a short walk often gives us time to refuel our own tanks!

Don't do this alone!

Don't do this alone! Create a good support system. These are the people you toot your horn to when you've done well. These are the people who pick you up when you're down. Without these special people, our journey would be very difficult.

bless her little heart

You have no control over negative words and actions of others. Your only control is how you respond to it. Don't let someone else pull you down. Keep your head high and a smile on your face. As we say in the South "well bless her little heart."

Motivation

Motivation comes from receiving and giving. Try motivating someone else and see the positive benefits you get. You can't motivate someone else without keeping a positive attitude yourself!
