39 lessons in 39 years

The Fertility Warriors PodcastI turned 39 in January! Truth be told I’m actually REALLY excited about entering this chapter in my life. I can honestly say I’ve learnt SO much more in my 30s, than any other time in my life. My infertility journey triggered this uncomfortable growth in me, and I can now also look back on with gratitude for the lessons it provided to me.

Tune into this week’s podcast where I share my biggest lessons over the last 39 years although below are the cliff notes. Enjoy! And, reach out to me on Instagram to let me know what you think.

  1. How you speak to yourself, is one of the important things you can control

  6. Stop caring so much about what your parents want and start thinking about what YOU want
  7. Deep down inside, YOU know the answer
  8. Money is a renewable resource, time is not
  9. Never discount the lessons in the journey
  10. The worst-case rarely ever happens. Neither does the best case. It’s usually somewhere in the middle
  11. Everyone deserves respect

  31. Life has seasons
  32. Guilt is a motherf*cker

  35. Your mood is a mirror
  36. You should always make your bed
