I look back at parts of my life, where I felt a spark, where both my gut feeling and my mind were in unison. You know what I did about it? Nothing. The worst thing I ever did in my life, was do nothing. Waiting for something to happen, to be inspired. Even when I did start something, it never went far enough because I was never fully committed, because I gambled on inspiration, I lacked discipline. However, there's no point in wailing about it, because I never felt regret for it, but I did feel loss. The most overlooked, underappreciated and misunderstood advice anyone interprets, is just starting. People don't know where to start, and that's why most people never do anything. Whatever you want to do, just do it..start. If you're looking for inspiration, then you already have the determination to do what you wanna do, just start immediately and you'll be fine. #poem#poems#poetry#poetrycommunity#poet#poetsofinstagram#writing#writingcommunity#writerscommunity#writersofinstagram#life#lifeisbeautiful#stories#storytime
I adore this story from Dawnalea ❤️ I'm not supposed to be their mommy. #Storytime
Every single thing in the universe was against me having my "happily ever after" to motherhood. I struggled from the age of 16 with cycles where I did not ovulate. I saw specialist after specialist who only wanted to treat with more and more medications. I asked "what is causing this?" Time and time again I would be told "you'll never have children and if a miracle occurs, you'll need fertility treatment." I was sad, scared and left empty.
How do you now tell someone who is "ready" (are you ever truly ready for a baby?) that you cannot fulfill a part of yourself that is so important. It's like looking up a long staircase and as you climb one, two, three steps and then fall back down. Little did I know my life was about to change.
After being on medication to help me conceive for over 4 years, I was pregnant! It was tough but I did ultimately give birth in the hospital to a beautiful baby after 29 hours of intense labor. Sadly, I was the unhealthiest I had ever been, lacking energy, struggling fatigue and toxic with dysbiosis. What did this medication do to help? Reduced insulin resistance. My hormones were regulated and I had ovulated. 💪🏻🙌🏻 What a huge victory! However, I'm very natural minded and was not a fan of the medication and awful side effects. I knew I would need it if I ever wanted another baby.
Let's turn the page. Jump to chapter 10.
I was ovulating every month, medication free, healthier than I've ever been. I had energy and felt like myself. What had changed?
Supplementation. I was supporting my body, increasing bioavailability, decreasing insulin resistance, happy hormones, happy gut and on the first try, baby number 2 was on her way. 💖
