In July, I attended the RWA National Conference in Anaheim and, as always, it was fun but also overwhelming. It’s taken me longer to recover this time. But then again, that’s becoming a recurring theme…
Ever since I passed 40, I swear something has shifted. New gray hairs are sprouting. It’s harder to lose weight (like it was easy to being with!). And wrinkles have decided to take up residency. Did I mention that things aren’t “bouncing back” the way they once did? My fear is things are only going downhill from here. It’s weird because I was just getting excited about my 30s–discovering who I really am, challenging myself, trying new experiences, etc. Now I’m thinking, “What a rip!” Get me all excited and then–bam–pull the rug out from under me. Why?
While talking with a friend this week, she mentioned the biological implications of attending a conference with 2,000 women, i.e., synchronization of hormonal cycles and, as a result, our bodies getting “thrown out of whack.” She assures me that I’m probably just experiencing post-conference biological readjustment. I’m crossing my fingers that she’s right and that things “readjust” fairly soon.
What do you think? Do you believe in female synchronicity?
