Do you find yourself stuck "wishing" or "hoping" for your baby?
Does all this wishing and hoping leave you feeling exhausted, heart broken, and feeling like all of this "positive thinking" is Pollyanna-pointless?
You aren't alone love. I remember hitting a wall with "positive thinking" myself after years of getting my teeth kicked in on my journey.
The harsh, but nonetheless infallible truth is: wishing, hoping, and positive thinking alone isn't going to get you anywhere.
I love you enough to be blunt, because there is NOTHING I want more for you than for you to fulfill your destiny of becoming a Mama.
As the glorious, triumphant, odds beating Oprah Winfrey says:
"You don't get what you hope for. You don't get what you wish for. You get what you believe."
This week I invite you to take an honest inventory of what you BELIEVE is possible for you. What do you really believe is possible for you love?
If you open your heart and love yourself enough to be honest, you will see that your answer has undoubtedly shaped your experience on this journey.
It will dictate whether you will keep getting up and dusting yourself off.
It will fuel your ability to take a stubborn stance in the name of what's in your heart.
It will determine how resourceful you are.
It will determine whether other people's opinions or statistics will simply be "information," or if they will be verdicts.
I know, without an iota of doubt, that every woman who actually BELIEVES she will be a Mama and goes after it like her hair is on fire, no matter what, will triumph.
My ladies don't sit back wishing and hoping.
They BELIEVE that the desire that's in their hearts to be Mamas was meant for them, so they cultivate the mindset and take the intelligent action that will put them on course for making it so...and they do.
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...
Identify your wishes and hopes v. your BELIEFS.
Let's get real love, so you can get out of your own way.
Get out a piece of paper and answer the following questions:
- Do you believe you will be a Mom?
- Do you believe that the desires in your heart are just as valid and worth of pursuing as anyone elses?
- Do you believe that this journey has to be a struggle?
- Do you belief that your goals and desires are worth spending money on--perhaps more than you've ever spent?
- Do you believe that you will find a way?
Notice what your answers reveal love. Do they sound like answers given by a woman who BELIEVES she can and will have what she wants?
If you don't like your answers, you have the power to change them.
