IVF: InVincible Focus

I mean, i don’t get off on injecting myself, but at least each evening i can feel like i am pushing on through another day, another moment closer through this torturous journey – perhaps on my way to our miracle.  I am certainly not a fan of my latest addition to my evening stomach spearing… Continue reading IVF: InVincible Focus

Stream of bloody consciousness

I could probably set my blog posts up to be on rotation, because these emotions are cyclical and predictable based on yet another failed attempt to conceive naturally this cycle.

The strength of a superwoman… (IVF Therapy)

The power of “I am…”

I am vulnerable, I am hurt, I am struggling, I am looking for answers, I am done with pain, but, I am great.  A wise lady recently taught me the power of “I Am”, in light of her own battles, and it fits perfectly with my own intentions.

I am blogging to share my journey from profound pain to greatness, and to use my experiences as a platform to become the best person I can be.  Life has thrown me around and knocked me down with grief, loss and fertility issues, and in doing so it has thrown me onto a new path and forced me to look deep within.

I will not be defined by my pain, but I am using it in the most positive way I can: I am working on my own deep connection, to understand myself, to understand circumstance, to re-connect with the universe and to become a better person every day.

No matter what, I am great.  We can all keep this affirmation close to our hearts.

Welcome to my journey.
