Well...I'm not pregnant.
I guess I should preface this, by saying that we started seeing a fertility specialist.
So far, we love him. He's amazing, and knowledgeable, and confident.

I know that I'll be a mom someday and that I'll be a good one.
But in my head lately, I've been saying things like:
"I'm not this..."
"I'm not that..."
"I don't do this..."
"I should do this..."
"Why aren't I more like..."

and today i chose to take  a minute and stop and 
INSTEAD of being negative about myself,
INSTEAD of tearing myself down,
INSTEAD of feeling like I'm not up to par with others,
I've decided, INSTEAD, to list some positive 
qualities about myself.

I am a good listener.
I am a good friend.
I am professional.
I clean up nice.
I have a great smile.
I love my husband...alot!
I have a decent voice.
I am creative.
I am a really fast learner.
I am really good at baking.
I am a great hairstylist.
I know who I am.
I know that I'm a daughter of God.
and I'm strong.

Instead of focusing on what i'm not (pregnant or anything else), I want to focus on what I AM.  I'm making this a good day. Happy Thursday everyone!


  1. I love these word posts. Such a great reminder to me. Thank you!

  2. Fertility treatments are tough. Most people don't understand. You feel like crap then find out there is another negative test. I can't tell you how many times I bawled not only because I wanted a baby soo soooo sooo bad but that I had to go through another month of meds. It's a long road but it will come. Have strength.
