Ok, hold onto your hat, this one is a doozie-
Recently, I had a client tell me that not only was she super excited about her next round of IVF, but that it was going to be fun. Those were her exact words. F-U-N.
I am not surprised at how dramatically my clients' lives change when we start working together, yet I have to admit this had me do a double-take.
Is she a goodie-two shoes Pollyanna-type? Hardly.
Did her doctor guarantee "it will work this time?" Nope.
Is she delusional? Not even close.
She made shifts that will change her life and her journey.
Let's zero in on one of them.
She is focusing on what she wants--NOT on what she doesn't want.
She is focused on being a Mom.
She is not focused on what-ifs, how much money she has spent, or failure fantasy.
She understands that one undeniably reduces stress and creates opportunity.
The other is toxic distraction.
Focusing her attention solely on what she wants is exactly why she will be a Mom.
Is she super-woman special? I work with women who want the best for their journey and themselves. They choose to overcome their stress and make their journey luxuriously simple, so they can be the Mom, Partner, and Woman they were meant to be. What they achieve is extraordinary.
So, YES she is incredibly special, AND SO ARE YOU.
She was scared and doubtful when she started, but she took a stand.
You have everything it takes to do the same.
If you doubt that--borrow a cup of my belief in you.
Want my help? I'm here.
Lots of love,
Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...
Are you up for changing your focus?
Most of us at one point or another allow our thoughts of being a Mom to be quickly polluted with a parade of what-ifs, "it will never happens," and acrid reminders of past failures.
We fool ourselves into thinking doing so will protect us from pain. It doesn't.
For the next 5 days challenge yourself to focus on what you want. Focus on what is good NOW and what you WANT for your future.
If something that upsets you happens, don't deny it. Simply choose where your focus will be.
Give this a try. Stretch yourself. Remember, it's about progress, NOT perfection.

Stress isn't doing your fertility any favors.
Women who are serious about creating the best possible circumstances on their fertility journey don't settle for letting stress undermine their efforts.
Fear and stress complicate your journey. Let's make the way you live it luxuriously simple, so you can be the Mom, partner, and woman you were meant to be.
My proven tools, strategies, and coaching method are "journey-tested" and frankly...badass.
