Do you ever find yourself stuck in a cycle of "coulda, woulda, shoulda?"
Are you now, more than ever, wishing you could wave a wand and change the past?
Been there. Felt that.
I wasted years on my fertility journey wallowing in regret, lamenting my "imperfection," second-guessing every choice I made, and crucifying myself for "failures."
Being stuck in that thought cycle is like road-rash for the soul.
Without an intelligent strategy, regret is a pointless waste of time that will brittle your heart, damn you to a life of squeak-by mediocrity, and render your body a stressed-out, low-vibe, hostile environment.
If you are actually committed to success on this journey, you must learn to use regret to your advantage.
Here's my recipe for getting smart about regret:
- Acknowledge your regrets--every gross one of them,
- Identify the limiting belief(s) that caused them,
- Transform the belief, and
- Move forward.
- Repeat as needed.
Regret is a life sentence only if you allow it to be.
My ladies are smart about regret.
They know "stuck" is a choice, so they learn from regret and use it to propel them forward on their beat-the-odds path to Mama-hood success.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
