“Sometimes when life doesn’t work out as you planned, there is a greater force at work.”Deanna Kahler
I’ve always been a Type-A personality, scanning my mental vision board to ensure that I was on the right path. In my younger years, I very innocently thought that as long as I worked hard, loved without restraint and stayed true to myself, I could somehow write (aka, control) life’s journey. It wasn’t until my infertility issues that I realized my narrative would be slightly different than the one that I had penned for myself.
It took letting go of the picture that I had very meticulously crafted in my mind of what this process should look like — I had to learn to embrace and love MY journey in order to fully move forward. And today, I’m so thankful for that “edit” to my story, because without it, I wouldn’t have the beautiful family that I have today!
