Good morning! I hope that you enjoyed the weekend. This Thursday, we are celebrating Thanksgiving here in the US. This is a great evening of expressing gratitude, appreciation, and love. Even in the face of your fertility journey, spending time with those you love can provide you with happiness and motivation to keep pushing forward on this long journey to parenthood. Dr. Kiltz suggests spending time with what you want. He teaches us that this is a way of sending your dreams and desires out to the world around you, while opening yourself up to receive whatever beauty may come your way. This holiday, try to open yourself up to the love and happiness within your circle of family and friends, and see what happens.
It may feel challenging to celebrate with family, as there are often children running around enjoying the day, but try to remember Dr. Kiltz’s words, and surround yourself with what you desire. Learn from your family members with children of their own, and imprint the laughter of your younger family members as motivation to have that within your own home next year. This is a great source of encouragement and motivation for you to access during those moments when you may feel like giving up, or that the journey is too long.
Be kind to yourself this holiday, and take plenty of time to rest. If you would like more suggestions for having a peaceful and relaxed holiday, please be sure to read the Holiday Support Guide.
Have a great week, and please feel free to contact me if there is anything I can do for you.
