Let us take a moment and think back together, what did that moment, day, week change for you? As a woman looking back, what would you do differently if you had your older self stepping back in time?
My goal is to keep the line of communication open, there is nothing that she isn’t allowed to ask about or discuss. But I also want her to be more prepared and ready.
Here is where I have started: We went shopping, alone, no dad, no brother. We stood in the feminine products aisle and discussed the options. What I use, what I don’t and why. We picked what felt like the most appropriate supplies for her, and came home. Then we put together a readiness kit for her purse. In the ziplock bag, there is one of the pads, an extra pair of underwear, this way if she needs to change her underwear she has a place to put it to bring it home.
She is ready, now I just pray that I am. Ready for the Teen angst and boredom, the ‘MOOOOOOMMM’ moments, and everything in-between.
Are you ready to cross over your next threshold? What is it, and what are things that you can do to be more prepared.
