The Journey seems to be emotional

It’s odd how some days my emotional equilibrium is stable and some days I’m a basket case fighting frustration. I thought, foolishly that after menopause I would be more stable, but I guess every journey has its own stresses to cope with.

I waited for the therapist and showed her how I get up and into my chair and then walked 15 steps across the kitchen. It helped my mood. She is so uplifting and encouraging…she is in the perfect job for her. If I had decided against walking today, I would have been in a funk all day despite completing my exercises successfully. Walking was a success and added to my tally of finished goals. All a good thing.

Life would be simpler some days without the mood swings and frustrations. It’s nice when I just have to battle the physical without the emotional. One more day in the journey…
