Do you ever get stuck on the “What if“s?
What if I never get pregnant…?
What if this is my cross to bear in life- get pregnant, miscarry, cry, repeat…
What if I’m just too old?
What if my marriage doesn’t survive this…?
What if I don’t survive this…?
What if motherhood never happens for me?
The hardest thing about that stupid “What if” cycle is that it feeds itself.
It just keeps going.
It pulls in people and scenarios that you really have no business being worried about.
But, thought after thought after thought, they just keep coming.
A quote that gets me through this depressing mind-sabotage says-
“Don’t believe everything you think“.
A bit counterintutive, right?
It’s like well, if I think it…don’t I already believe it?
I wrote a post a while back titled “How To Be More Positive“.
One of the pointers that I make in there is that you have to tell your mind what to stay occupied with.
Your mind isn’t always under your conscious control and it gets carried away by your emotions at times. And let’s be real- emotions are wishy washy!
It takes practice and work but it’s important to learn how to replace those “what-ifs” with positive thoughts that feed your mind the exact opposite of what your fears are trying to feed your mind.
These days, I have been obsessed with surrounding myself with fertility affirmations and I want to share them with you.
Why We Need Fertility Affirmations
- Because “where your thoughts go, your life follows”.
I truly believe that like the bible says, we have the power of life and death in our tongues and we can speak things into existence.
- Fertility Affirmations promote HOPE and repel FEAR
- They help you self-soothe and decrease the stress and tension in your body (which promotes fertility)
- They encourage self love and helps you learn to appreciate your body again
