My goodness... as a woman on this planet, I get so many messages... so many powerful thoughts, and I choose what I want to think about and what I don't! Several years ago I came across a web site called BloodSisters which is all about choosing re-usable menstrual products, which intrigued me. I am ok with the thought that this isn't interesting or worthwhile for all women, but thinking about the impact our choices have on the greater good, choices as simple as choosing what we use when we have our monthly period, makes me aware of how powerful I am on my own.
SO... I am proud to use 100% re-usable menstrual products every month, for nearly two years now. When I get my cycle, I get a happy feeling opening my little basket of my supplies in all beautiful colors (about 12 reusable Petunia Pads, two Sorella Luna Sea Sponge Tampons and a Keeper) ready for me to use.
Ultimately, what it comes down to is this picture below... and when I go into myself, and think about the value I have as a person on this planet, I know that this simple choice makes a world of difference!!!
