Personal Growth (aka change) is f-ing hard. Just this past month I decided to experiment with a feminine care product called Flex. I was nervous. I didn’t know if it would work or if it would be hard to get in or get stuck. It was new and different, and even though I HATE using tampons my brain could easily convince me to stay with the known even if the unknown could make my life dramatically better.
I am here to tell you that I am SOOO happy I pushed through the fear of change stuff that came up and decided to try Flex (If you want to learn more about Flex keep reading). It is life changing. It makes me not dread my period because my life doesn’t revolve around being next to a bathroom (you can keep Flex in for up to 12 hours!). I know it might feel like a stretch to see how switching feminine hygiene products and living a better life are connected, but I promise you that every BIG change starts with a struggle, a desire for something different and a baby step.
We resist change, well more accurately our ego resists change (aka growth) with everything it has. It tells you that you’re not worth it, it will be too hard, that different is bad and that life is just fine being fine.
DO NOT LISTEN!!
When there is something that you feel called to do in life (or something new you want to try) there will be times that are challenging; you will have to move out of your comfort zone, you will be forced to let go of beliefs, ideas and sometimes people (or tampons ; )) who are not in alignment with who you are becoming.
YOU ARE HERE TO GROW AND EVOLVE
When you evolve so do your children. They become better humans who will ensure that we will be here for many more generations. When you evolve (aka grow) you suffer less, you connect to your soul’s purpose, you have more compassion, more wisdom, more truth and more joy.
If you are having some anxiety about making a change that you know will be good for you, take 3 minutes to watch this short EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) video to help you move through that fear. Before you watch you will want to rate your fear of change from a 1 to 10, 10 being the highest amount of fear you could have.

Flex Update (Aug. 23 2018):
As of 8/18 I have been using Flex for OVER a year and I still don't know how I survived my periods before. They have THE BEST customer service and when I didn't receive a shipment they sent one that day AND refunded me. I still highly recommend trying it out!
