The Bathroom Talk
You had to know that this was coming; the only question was when. My timing couldn’t be better; it’s right when you need it.
You’ve seen the title, so I’m going to make this short and sweet ---well, maybe not so sweet—anyway, we need to have that woman to reader talk.
So, I’m going to get right to it; when your body and mind are telling you to go to the bathroom, get up and go.
As busy people we tend to wait it out. We hold it like a kid watching their favorite cartoon or playing an online game that they’re winning. We don’t take a bio-break even when our joints are aching and our back is in pain. Today I’m telling you to GET UP AND GO.
This is a wellness/transformation blog. It’s all about becoming your best self and letting the old junk go. I would not be a good sister if I didn’t tell you to let all of the old junk go.
When you are in bed and you suddenly wake up in the middle of the night with the need to go to the bathroom, don’t turn on the TV; go to the bathroom. You’ll sleep much better.
You would never allow the water pipes in your house to get clogged and backed up. You would never tell a kid that really had to go to just sit there.
Somewhere in that transition from child to adult we have been led to believe that holding it is what makes you grown.
Taking care of your body and its needs is the sign of maturity we need to watch out for.
The better you take care of your self—spirit, mind and body; the better you become.
That’s it. May sound crazy but you know I’m talking to you---now go.
Be you, be well, be better.
