Beyond The Dream of Motherhood
Beyond The Dream of Motherhood.
My new life.
I enter it with great sadness, but also with great hope for a life of happiness and fulfillment. For a life of personal achievement and satisfaction. The kind of life that I wish for all of us who have been forced into childlessness.
So how do we achieve that when we have been through so much heartache and loss?
Step by step. Little by little.
Searching for the things that make us happy.
Searching for what we find fulfiilling.
Searching for the things that we enjoy.
Finding healing from all the challenging aspects of our past, not just infertility.
Creating a life not hampered by negative behaviours or emotions.
Creating a life where we are living fully and not held back by our past.
Letting go of it all and living in the present.
To that end, there are so many things that work. For everyone it is different. We must find our own form of healing as well as our own form of what we enjoy and find fullfilling. I find it very exciting to hear what other people love doing!
For me, at this moment, there is therapy, kiniesology, naturopathy, swimming, walking, baking, my parents, my great nephew and of course, my husband.
I'm looking forward to finding my way through this new life, to sharing what is working and what is isn't, to hearing what works for you and what doesn't, to being part of an ever increasing community of those of us who are living "Beyond The Dream of Motherhood".
