Dear Hormones – Day 295 of The Pollyanna Plan


Dear Hormones,

I know you’re in a bit of a mess at the moment and that me stopping taking the birth control pill has hit you hard.

I understand that perhaps I should have consulted you first before making this big decision for us, but you always behave so unreasonably when you don’t have your friend, the birth control pill, to rely on. So, time and time again I have given in to your tantrums and tears.

But not this time!

You see, this time I understand that in order for us to get properly healthy and well, you, dear hormones, have to learn to work again in harmony and without support. I know it’s not going to be easy, but please know that I am here for you.

And during the tough days, like today, when you are raging out of control and making me feel miserable, I have The Pollyanna Plan to fall back on. I know that these emotions are caused by you – they’re not how I really feel – and with this knowledge, I am able to be strong and positive for the both of us.

I started this letter feeling a bit peeved with you, but I now see that all you need is some love and a dose of Pollyanna’s happy vibes  and we’ll both get through this just fine.

Yours truly,


Day 295, Reason 295: Today I am incredibly grateful for the realisation that I can think and feel lovingly towards my hormones, no matter how badly they are acting up! 🙂

  1. This is beautiful! Yes, our bodies need some TLC and nice feelings towards them; they work so hard for us and are doing the best they can to take care of us. Talking to your hormones soothingly is better than any medicine, to help attune them to a higher vibration. This is powerful!


    1. Thank you so much for your supportive words, Nina! 🙂 I didn’t intend to write this letter as my post for the day, it just sort of happened when I started typing. And afterwards I felt so much better – both emotionally and physically! 😀

  2. Lol, I can relate. When I went off the pill a few years ago, my hormones went nutso for over a year. But it really does get better eventually, so hang in there. Keeping your carb load down is a real help too – I notice that still makes a big difference to mine. 🙂

    1. Thank you very much for your advice…and for letting me know that it will get better with time. 🙂 Oh and “nutso” is the perfect description for my hormones at the mo. I must remember that one! 😉
