My Reproductive Nightmare

Here we go again.

I was practicing my affirmation a few weeks ago – writing in the margins of my book. Every time the author instructed me to think positively about something, I wrote it in the margin. One of the things in my life bringing out the negative, is my difficulty having another child. So, instead of thinking like that, I was trying to train myself to use positive affirmations. I’m not saying it worked miracles or anything…but how’s this for timing?

  3. Hmm … Just thought I’d add that today I lost my great grandmother. She lived to be 100 years old, and would’ve reached 101 in two weeks. I guess this is the cycle of life: an old soul dies, a new one comes to life …
