Good morning! We hope that you had a wonderful weekend. We also hope that you were able to find daily moments of beauty and peace. In the midst of your journey to fertility, it may be challenging to find many beautiful and peaceful moments. As you are focused on your fertility, and making it through each step of your cycle, many moments that may offer great peace and happiness may pass you by.
This week, we would like you to try to notice one positive, beautiful, or peaceful moment a day. This can be as simple as a nice quiet cup of tea or coffee in the morning. You might notice the beauty in nature as we shift further into fall, or the kindness of someone who offers a warm smile during your day. You do not need to outwardly acknowledge these moments, but take a minute or two to breathe deeply and take it in. The journey to fertility is long, challenging, and full of emotion. The roller coaster of emotions experienced every cycle can be exhausting as you move through excitement, expectation, hope, and then great disappointment. Finding these brief moments throughout the day can act like trail markers. Making it from one marker to the next, and stopping to rest in its peace, can give you the motivation to move forward through your next set of challenges.
We spend a great amount of time speaking about the emotional challenges of this journey during our Circle of Hope support group sessions. We also share many ways to observe the peaceful moments, and integrate them into our daily lives. We would love for you to join us at our next sessions!
Finally, did you know that we started new Private Facebook Fertility and Pregnancy Groups for current clients? Here, you can find a safe and secure space to share with other women and men facing similar challenges. You can get immediate support and feedback! If you are interested in joining, please message Lisa Stack within the Patient Portal
If you are interested in a more private one-on-one support situation, Lisa Stack is our CNY Fertility Center Support Coordiator, she offers her services as a lay support person and can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not yet a client or via the Patient Portal if you are a current client.
