I’m finding this month to be reflective.
Maybe it’s the fact that I’m halfway through the first year of my son’s life?
Maybe it’s the crazy lunar cycles we’ve been experiencing?
Maybe it’s the chakra balancing and reiki I’ve been doing?
Maybe it’s just time…
Almost 3 years ago, I started writing about our journey through infertility and pregnancy loss. It’s been a combination of fact, emotion, intuition, medical intervention and miracle.
There’s no need to apologize.
There’s no need to feel guilty.
There’s no need to feel like I have to justify what I’ve said or done along the way.
It’s my truth.
It’s my story.
I’ve come a long way from the woman who typed her first blog post and hit submit.
I’ve cut ties to my past. I’ve healed aching wounds.
I’ve released those who no longer serve my greater good. I’ve tightened my circle.
I’ve set boundaries and defined my needs.
I’ve learned that I am capable, strong, intuitive, gentle, fierce, motherly, compassionate, passionate, sensitive, caring, … the list could go on.
But most of all, I’ve learned that I am LOVED.
Tonight I was feeling insecure. I questioned myself, my decisions, my steps along the way.
I know better.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned throughout it all is to listen to my gut. I know what is right and what is wrong for me. When I listen to this knowing, I experience peace and joy. When I ignore it, I experience anxiety and despair.
It’s a very clear picture; a very simple process.
There’s no need to fret dear one. You are YOU. And that’s a beautiful thing. ❤
Next time you are feeling like I was, I encourage you to ask yourself how you can change these feelings? Does what is causing them REALLY matter? What will make them go away?
Listen to yourself. You’ve got all the answers you need inside.
