3 things that happen when you accept where you are.
Do you agree that society is sooo A.B.C?
We always be chasin’.
Chasin’ mo money. Chasin’ a promotion. Chasin’ a better wardrobe. Chasin’ a bigger house. Chasin’ a sexier marriage. And of course, chasin’ a baby.
We are in a constant state of want and waiting for the next best thing.
Don’t get me wrong, having goals and working towards something is vital to feeling of purpose in the world, but when did it become so not fun?
And when did we forget that the journey is meant to be enjoyed just as much as the destination?
As a Life Coach, my biggest concern with the “next best thing” mindset, is that when your goal does come to fruition, your mind doesn’t know how to fully enjoy it…because it’s been trained to focus on the future and never the now.
So how do you begin to enjoy the journey of life NOW -- in all of its imperfection?
How can you show your baby that this life is meant to be LIVED -- through ALL of its ups and downs?
Through this one incredibly overlooked way: Acceptance.
I’m not asking to give up getting pregnant. Because you will have this baby. What I’m asking you to do, is to accept just this moment exactly as it is. You don’t have to accept your life situation. Just this moment.
When you’re not in acceptance, you’re in resistance. You’re literally rejecting life. And resistance creates a tight energy in your body which communicates that its not the best time to create a baby.
Trust me, I know it sounds crazy to the monkey mind to just accept where you are, but when you connect with your body, can you feel how painful it is when you don’t want to be where you are?
Here’s 3 things that happen when you accept where you are:
1. you restore peace in your mind and body.
When your mind and body are at peace and not abc’ing, not only are you living in the moment, but it communicates to your body that it’s safe to get pregnant.
2. You're overcome with huge gratitude.
You know you’re in acceptance when you start to notice all that’s going well in your life, even if it’s somethin' as simple as having food to eat. You’ll also find gratitude for the tough times too, as these moments are opportunities for growth and self-discovery.
3. you're align with Inspired action.
A big misconception around acceptance is that it means you do nothing, which couldn't be farther from the truth. You see, acceptance is an energetic way of saying YES to life. And when you say yes to life, life says yes back. The Universe will respond by sending you inspiration to do things that will help you get what you want. So before taking any action, it’s important to accept where you are.
Finding acceptance is as simple as getting still, connecting with your breath and making the conscious choice that you're no longer going to fight against your life. And watch the love fill your body as you energetically put down your sword and accept where you are.
What if, all you’re meant to learn on your fertility journey is how to accept and enjoy your life now? What if this kind of presence is what’s most needed for the sanity of the world and for our future generation, and YOU were a part of this bigger plan?
So accept this moment. And this moment...and this moment.
Much love to you mama-bear,
