And Now... For a Little Positive Infusion

Thanks to you for your support over the last few days as I struggled with my inadequacies at work as a result of sadness over my infertility and having it show at work. Not easy to confront about myself, but such is my story and luckily I have an actual new year ahead to wipe the (sadness) slate clean!

Now onto infusing some positivity...

I was inspired by Katie at From If to When on her post Strength. She admits that it can be hard to focus on positives when we're feeling sad and lonely but she does it anyway and I want to too.

She's motivated me to set up our nursery even though we don't know how that baby will come. It's something she says she has control over and I think I need that now too.

Lily from The Infertile Mind is always someone I know I can count on to have some positive vibes radiating on her blog. More recently, she's been posting a lot of positive quotes that I love getting my fill of every few days!

Rebecca at The Road Less Traveled has seen positive betas from her donor embryo transfer and I am so thrilled for her! She has been through a lot this year and this new news warms my heart.

And... my best friend just had her second baby. I feel so blessed to be such an intimate part of it all - getting calls as she was going through labor and getting to see her baby girl at less than 1 day old after she home-birthed her. It's so rare to get to be part of that type of experience. Sure, I got teary-eyed when I left particularly since she's dark-haired like I imagine mine to be... but I think I was just emotional overall at the gift of life.

Is that some good positivity or what? :)


  1. I actually set up our nursery this summer, even though, like you, we don't know how we will bring our baby home. On really rough days, I like to go in there and imagine what will be.

    Good luck to you, and way to be positive!!

  2. thanks for the reminder to look around me at some of the good stuff, it is often hard to remember that.

  3. Je te souhaite un très joyeux Noël ! I think it's so good that your friend included you in the baby's birth. And I love that you are planning your nursery, it's such a nice idea !

  4. You are so sweet. I'm so glad you enjoy my rather obvious obsession with quotes, too! I'll be sure to keep them coming in the new year. Happy New Year to all of us!
