Maybe this is where I’m supposed to be. Maybe I’ll break, but I’ve got a list of tools to get me through it. All of these tools and invitations serve me and will make me stronger and are within my values.

I can’t wish for things to be any other way, than the way they are. I can only focus on what I CAN do given the circumstances.

One day I’ll be holding my baby in my arms, laughing at everything we went through and all the doubts. It will all feel worth it.

I don’t want to regret not living the best, most amazing life I possibly can.
