I had a patch with trying to conceive (TTC) where I felt caught up in the whirlwind of it all. Kinda like someone put me in a washing machine on spin cycle and I felt powerless to do anything to stop it.
It was really starting to get me...then one day I realised I was actually in control. The way I was behaving was the only thing that was disempowering me.
I don't know about you but often I forget that every day is a new day. A chance to step up. Chase a Dream. Raise my standards. Be the person I want to be.
