“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!” – Dr. Suess

It’s that time of year, so of course I had to pick a Christmas quote. It’s a time of organizational chaos. This year wasn’t any different for me. Nature really has a funny way of messing with your schedule. Continue reading “Quote of the Month”

Quote of the Month

“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”
― Dr. Seuss

Over the last year, I’ve been actively steering my life towards happiness and growth as a person BUT the two-week wait does crazy things to a person’s mind. This month, and the last month, I found myself becoming very snappy with my husband, and though I can blame it partially on the hormones, I also know it’s mainly the nerves and impatience.

Two weeks can be a very long time. This quote helps me, it calms me down, I just say to myself “Today was good. Today was fun. I might have screwed up but tomorrow is another one.”

Quote of the Month

Don’t be discouraged, it’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock – unknown

My hubster and I have just returned from a healing trip recommended by our doctor. After my miscarriage, I immediately and almost frantically wanted to start trying for a little miracle again, and actually was upset with her advice to take a trip and give us some time to heal. But, though I hate to admit it, it turns out she was more than right.

The one month of reflection and simply dealing with our loss was great for both of us. We bonded, talked, felt closer and sometimes cried. But now, I am ready and confidently can say, feel ready to start trying again, optimistically and happily.

A quote that has always made me smile and an experience most of us have had, is: “don’t be discouraged, it’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.” This month, with a little smile each time I look at my bunch of keys, we will jump back on the little-miracle-creating wagon.

Quote of the Month

Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’ – Mary Anne Radmacher

beachI stumbled upon this quote two days ago and it really resonated with me.

It’s been 2 weeks since my miscarriage and though there is a lot of desire and hope to try again, there is also an omnipresent numbing fear. 

This quote made me realize that sometimes it is not about being fearless, it’s all about taking a deep breath, not giving up and simply trying again tomorrow.
