Uplifting words for your journey
Vision boards and daily affirmations can be amazing motivators to help you focus on your goals and keep your spirits up.
I'm sharing a collection of quotes to help inspire and empower you through your most difficult days on your infertility journey.
I have a vision board covered with pictures — exotic places I'd like to visit someday, an idol I'm dying to meet, a pregnant woman and a newborn baby. Sprinkled throughout are also words and quotes that get me through the day. I am greeted each morning by my vision board and it helps set the tone for my day.
"For me, inspiration comes from 101 different places… "
These words and images shape my reality and allow me to keep believing my dream of adding a child to my family will come true, no matter how difficult my infertility journey gets. I turn to these positive affirmations for strength and they help lift my spirits. It's amazing the power a single sentence can have when you are in the depths of despair.
For me, inspiration comes from 101 different places… a kind gesture; a meaningful conversation with someone I admire, respect or maybe never even met in real life, but have made an online connection with. I am inspired by those that give of themselves and expect nothing in return, an exploration involving a passport, being within the comfort of my home surrounded by the people I love most, the lyrics of a song I have heard a hundred times, an epiphany that leads me down a road of self-discovery, a starry sky, a roaring ocean or a vast, desolate desert. Inspiration is everywhere and when it feels like you are fighting the fight of your life, it can be everything.
Words of comfort and encouragement
While facing infertility, I find myself searching for inspiration and words of encouragement and comfort more often than not. Staying grounded, focused and positive is my No. 1 priority! Sometimes that is a lot easier said than done. There is a time for sadness, tears and frustration, but in the long run it does me no good to mope.
These are just a few of my favorite quotes and I hope they help you too.
