Do what you can TTC IVF Infertility Fertility

This seems so simple - Start Where You Are. Use What You Have. Do What You Can. But so often we complicate this!

We have a need to be perfect or a fear of failing. Well I can start that cos I don't have all the things I need to finish it....Well I can't do that, its impossible so I won't try.

Truth is though - that strength we are looking for, those things we are missing....we are much more likely to find if we just take action. Just start.

The best way to learn, to know what works and what doesn't is to give things a go.

No need to make it bigger than Mount Everest! Keep it simple - start where you are, with what you have and see what happens.

Yes things might not work out....but if they don't we find out much faster. If we've done less and invested less we have less to lose and more to gain.

I've come to realise that if we hoard things up, and wait until we think they are just perfect before unveiling them more often than not things never get finished.... or they fail on such a spectacular level that its hard to recover from!

Fertility struggles are a little like this. If you go too hard too fast with all of the treatments and lifestyle changes when things don't work it can be both devastating and exhausting.

Its ok to start smaller, to work with what you have and build on that. Each week do what you can to step forward. You'll get there...the trick is to just start!

Have a great week doing what you can, with what you have, to work towards where you want to be!!
