My Life - Pivots
I’ve had hormonal imbalances my entire life that came with early menstruating, chronic migraines, endometriosis, adenomyosis, fibroids, cysts, fertility issues, multiple corrective surgeries, pregnancy loss and more. And a hysterectomy in my 20’s. All of those things/alterations has caused changes in my body.
Without an openness towards pivoting, how would I survive my life?
Add to that years of being given antibiotics for tonsillitis or really any ailment back in the day. So my gut health (gut flora) is a bit whacked.
Cut to removal of my tonsils and spleen (2 parts of our 6 part lymphatic system).
All of those things/alterations has caused changes in my body. And I haven’t even mentioned other traumas of my life
I literally walk and breathe in an altered state as a result. We all do in some way, don’t you think?
I watched the Mary J. Bilge’s My Life documentary recently and it moved me to give you a glimpse into my own life and why what I do for I Am Len’s Kitchen and why it’s important for me to fight for building it up is so important to me for you…
It’s always been about healthier pathways for whole life wellness for me. It’s where I restore my balance. No matter if I struggle, falter, or put it on pause when my life seems too much to handle.
I share this with you because I want to remove the shame that our life has to look and be sunshine and rainbows all the damn time or that there are no sacrificing being made to reach our next personal goals or dreams in life.
I want you to know that you still have choices to live the best life you can with who you are, and with what you have today.
Those challenges, trauma, overwhelm will all somehow shape you in ways that you may never have realized otherwise.
Change takes time. Small changes from the inside out will lead to bigger change.
I’m talking about you thriving in ways that is meaningful to you that may not look different on the outside initially but you FEEL better as a result of making some lifestyle changes.
There is growth in the pivot.
There is survival in the pivot.
There is depth of self in the pivot.
So pivot as many times as you deem it necessary.
I will be here to continue to show you mine as my life is a series of pivots all leading towards a bigger purpose of how I serve you.
