Happy Monday! Even though I dislike Monday's, due to the simple fact that it's a sure sign that the weekend is over and it's time to go back to work for the next five days, I'm finding it's important to look at each day in some sort of positive way (even Mondays). I mean take today for example: Today after work I get to go home and see my husband, relax & put my feet up, and watch the season finale of the Bachelorette. It's the little things in life right?! I'm learning that these tiny little things really do help me get through my Monday, or any day of the week. What gets you through yours? Better yet, to look at it on a broader spectrum....what gets you through your cycle each month? For me it's the thought of expanding my family, to get to see the look on my husbands face when a child of his own comes into this world, getting to debate which characteristics of our child's look like our own, getting to decorate a perfect little nursery for our special edition that will come one day, or the thought to even get to think....will it be pink or blue? These things are all the positive things that I use to try to get me through each cycle, even though speed bumps will try to slow my motivation. For me, those speed bumps have been many years of a negative test, an ectopic pregnancy, and lots of money flying out of our @ss so to speak. I can't continue to focus on those things....but instead focus on the good in all of this, the final achievement in which we're striving for - the baby! It's hard to be so positive about something you feel is so far out of my reach, but if I can't hold my head up and focus on something positive, then why am I putting myself through this to begin with.....ask yourself that. Try to stay positive even when the worst of the worst days come. One day the sun will peak over the clouds and shine.....it may not be today, tomorrow, next week, or next month, but try to remain positive and know that something good will eventually come of all of this.
Me In A Nutshell
My name is Kristina and I'm 37. Originally I'm a Southern CA girl, and I'm now living in the "burbs" of Chicago. I love my son, my husband, my family, my fur babies, and my wonderful friends. I love wine, love to relax, love to have a good time, I'm a little adventurous, love to people watch, and I'm always down for a last minute road trip to virtually anywhere. I'm obsessed with the smell of racing fuel...weird I know - and fresh cut grass! I love to be home, but hate to sit at the house. If I'm excited I get pretty random - sometimes I talk about multiple subjects at once - I'll admit it's probably hard to keep up. My husband and I battled infertility for 5 years before having a successful pregnancy - our son Colton Charles was born September 30th, 2016, Although we have had success with the birth of Colton, our battle still continues with infertility. I've learned it's a wonderful & beautiful thing to share with others the journey that we've walked in the world of infertility. Welcome to our story.
