I think one of the biggest lessons I stand to learn on this journey is how important it is to stop and take care of myself sometimes. I go to work for 3 13-14 hour nights per week and give my all to strangers. I come home physically and mentally drained and then have to give my all to this IVF journey that leaves me emotionally and spiritually drained. A journey that literally takes my blood, sweat, and tears. Then what little and inadequate amounts of me I have left to give, I give to my marriage and personal life. And that leaves me feeling guilty because I know it’s not enough and my perfect partner deserves more of me than whatever empty, exhausted, hot mess is left over after all of that.
But you know what? It’s time for ME. Time to recharge, rest, and put everything back into perspective. Hubby is out of town for the day so I’m gonna treat myself to some Kneaders for lunch, a nice relaxing massage (a gift from my sweet MOL), a nap, and some random to-dos around home. Simple, chill, no stress.
Moral of the story: life is hard, you are strong, you can do tough things, your all is your all and that IS enough, and don’t forget to treat yo self. ❤️😘❤️
