Do you ever feel trapped by "rules" on this journey?
What you can eat.
What you can do.
It's insane that for just about every "rule" out there, you can find something/someone that will say the exact opposite.
Yet, we rarely ever stop and think about that, or its implications.
Uncertainty and fear seduces us into a tragic default of handing our power over to others, as we get ping-ponged back and forth between statistics, opinions, and judgments.
We abandon ourselves, our truth, and our voices in favor of those who "know better."
I lived that way for years. It almost cost me my baby boy.
Therefore, I'm going to ask you a question with the love and ferocity only another woman who has lived this journey can.
Are the "rules" you are living by on this journey actually YOURS?
I'm willing to bet there's a good number that aren't.
What opportunities, circumstances, and chances are you missing out on, because other people have more sway on your journey than YOU do?
Time's up on trusting others more than you trust yourself.
Break the rules. Make your own.
It's what women who defy the odds do.
My ladies make their own rules.
They know trusting themselves gives them an undeniable edge--it catapults them past mere "possibility," into booty-shaking, baby-snuggling inevitability.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...
Get to know the rules you are living by.
Seriously, who says you can't do another IVF?
Why does anyone get to decide you are "too old?"
By whose terms are you "spending too much?"
Think carefully about your rules. Chances are, if you are honest, they were put there by someone else, waaaaaay before you had a chance to say a conscious YES to them.
The good news is, as a grown ass woman, you get to make your own rules. Life is too short to subordinate your truth to someone else's. Rock this journey YOUR WAY.

Stretch yourself! It's about progress, not perfection.
