Let's get social
I have had a minute to think... While waiting for my breakfast to make itself. It didn't happen 😉 but a few moments to mindlessly scroll (rare for me) - super nice. Are you a frequent scroller, or are you running around like a headless chook most of the time?
I haven't felt like going into details, but it's been a very stressful few weeks. But today, I managed to get to @exhaleskinbodyspa for a mindfulness meditation facial. It's the first time in weeks that I got some time to fill my cup. And I just about burst into tears. Relief? Gratitude? I don't know. But it was lovely and I needed it. ❤ . And they're moving about 200m from my parents house... Basically where I spend 47.4% of my time. Awesooommmme.
To say the last 8 weeks have been mad has been an understatement. Maybe you've noticed, maybe you haven't. I've rescheduled appointments left right and centre, the podcast and my socials have been very quiet. As I was driving to the hospital today though, I felt the energy change. Some of the heaviness lifted, and I felt a little ✨ of light inside me. Hopefully less heavy and more hopeful. The new moon tonight and the equinox, supposedly can be a time of unapologetic change, The fall equinox is knowing on a gut level that nothing lasts forever, and the process of letting go of the old before you let the new in. I feel it. Bit woo who #sorrynotsorry Maybe this week, maybe next, I'll be making some announcements and filling you in. Speak soon ❤
He looked at me, square in the eyes and said 'You're angry'. Sadness Hopelessness Desperation I had begun to work on those. I was good at having my own pity party. But anger? Like a sack of bricks, it dawned on me, and instantly I felt lighter. I had nothing to say. He was right. My fertility specialist had hit the nail on the head. I WAS angry. I was filled with rage, and had been really good at trying to 'just be happy'.... but of course, it was a show. It was superficial. You can't just 'choose happiness' and 'be strong' - doing those things are a band-aid fix. You need to travel deep inside. You need to have a good self-awareness of exactly how you're feeling, and know that's ok. You need to have a toolkit. My journey to have children is now over and my life has different challenges. There were things I learnt on my journey that CHANGED EVERYTHING.... and now, years later, there's more. Many more things that I feel could have made a much more significant change in both my fertility and how I dealt with things. But you don't know what you don't know. Knowledge. Resources. Tools. Experiences. Trying new things. It's never in vain. It's ALWAYS worth it. Because you have to give things a shot to know if they'll work. It's ALWAYS worth it.

I've been sitting and reflecting on my journey. I remember nights sat typing frantically on my phone as I googled symptoms and possible red flags. I was absolutely desperate for answers - obsessed, angry, frustrated. I was angry that this had happened to us.... Angry that the crack whore mums on the street were able to have babies so easily, and here I was, with a good income and a loving home and healthy body - ready and waiting to have a baby and it wasn't happening.... I was obsessed with trying to find the magic bullet that would 'cure' our infertility....But also worried that I was turning into a crazed maniac. Had I taken it too far buying supplements, 'fertility tea', bracelets and other charms.... was I turning into a mad woman? Upon reflection, the answer is no. Sure, I've dived I to stuff that I don't feel has made any difference, but boy have I learnt a lot and discovered concepts, filled my shelves with recipe books that excite me and lessons that will last me a lifetime. So all that searching and buying - well.... Maybe not the fertility bracelet 😂, but everything else? Worth it. In the link in my bio I've got a special offer for anyone interested - 20 fertility experts have banded together to provide their resources to you at a heavily discounted price. 82% off.
