So many times I’ve been told to just move on, to just stop being sad about not being able to have kids, I’ve been told that I need to stop allowing myself to fall into bouts of depression, like it’s something I can control. Like I can completely shut off the emotions that bubble up without me even having a chance to process them. Like Nikita says, everyone heals in their own time. So whether it’s infertility, a miscarriage, the loss of someone close to you, etc.: stop comparing someone else’s healing process to another person’s, because we all heal differently and at our own pace.
Bible Verse of the Day ...... My mom taught me at a young age that if you don't have anything positive to say JUST DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL. That's advice I didn't start using until I got older. My BRAVADO/EGO would get in my way because I thought I knew EVERYTHING!! As I got older Bravado would get me in trouble. I escalated incidences that could've been easily avoided had I kept my mouth shut. If you can't find a positive thing to say, I've learned it's just best to keep quiet. If that happens more than you'd like, take my mom's advice above and ALWAYS COME CORRECT

One of the hardest decisions you’ll make in your life is the decision to focus 100 percent on making your dream a reality.
Maybe you recently quit your job to start your own business, or you’re a recent graduate who’s pursuing your passion.
Now the real journey begins.
You’ll need to overcome the obstacles that inevitably come your way externally and internally. Sooner or later, you’ll have hesitations about your ability to succeed, or you’ll have people tell you that your idea is no good. You will doubt yourself in your journey.And that’s okay.
Every iconic leader, from Thomas Edison to Michael Jordan to Steve Jobs, has felt this uncertainty in one form or another through their career. The difference between those who persevere and those who quit is being mentally prepared for what it takes to cross the success line.
