I invite you to join me in a practice of acknowledging the things we are grateful for.
I noticed earlier today that I was feeling sad and frustrated because I was focusing on what I don't have, in this case not being pregnant/not having a child, and I realized there are so many things in my life that I do have.
I felt it might be helpful, encouraging, inspiring, to share with each other the joy and positivity that exist in our lives. I assume we all get down at some point while TTC, and maybe stepping back and seeing the bigger picture will help us appreciate how good we have it.
So here I go:
I am grateful for this community. Connecting with so many of you who share the ups and downs of the TTC journey, hearing your frustrations and your successes helps me feel less isolated in this process.
I'm grateful for my wonderful husband who really lent me his ear and gave me the space to be sad today.
I'm grateful for a day off. I'm not a native of the US but I enjoy the opportunities living here has given me.
