Hormonal Sucker Punch

Ding! Ding! The bell sounds, each opponent leaves their corner. Pop pop pop…. I fall against the ropes. Dazed….10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. I shake my head and yell “I’m not knocked out!”

I’m laughing out loud to keep from screaming and or crying! Currently my hormones have me feeling like I’m in the ring with a heavy weight fighter. Am I alone? Have your hormones ever have you feeling like this?

Just like a boxer studies their opponent. I too have studied to educate myself so I am better able to understand what my body is currently going through and will be going through in regards to hormones (my opponent). No matter how much a boxer studies their opponent to prepare for the big fight once in the ring the possibility of an unexpected punch is inevitable.

When I thought I fully understood my body and felt pretty prepared to encounter anything hormones would throw my way, then bam an unexpected punch. Ouch!!!!! I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!

Gut punched, on the ropes thinking can I handle this fight? Quickly, I need to come up with a strategy to counter the hormonal sucker punch.

This hormonal fight is going to happen. I can’t run! I won’t run! I will fight! From day to day I don’t know when or where the hormonal sucker punch will occur, what I do know is I might be dazed but I won’t allow it to knock me out.

Ding ding ding!!! The bell rings! Another round I go. Who will win today me or the hormones?

When it comes to the craziness of hormones, I find it is easier for me to add some comedic levity to this aspect of my life. In the midst of a hormonal sucker punch, I decided to write about the encounter with the prayer that my feelings and the way I’m dealing with hormonal changes will help someone. I better duck, here comes another sucker punch…LOL!!!!
PEARLStoPONDER: There is a season for everything. In the midst of this season I must admit I have complained, but quickly I try to catch myself. In my moment of complaining I often think of the many women who will never get to experience this season of life because they are no longer with us. I also think about the other sisters I know personally who wish this was the only sucker punch they had to deal with.  So, you know what, not only do I take the punch. I am grateful for the hormonal sucker punch.
Philippians 4:13--I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Ephesians 6:10--Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might

Thessalonians 5:16-18--Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
