2019 was a year of growth and I am grateful for all the lessons I learnt.
2019 has been a roller coaster ride for me. I have successfully established Fertility Solutions and with that came highs and lows. I still have BIG plans for the business, however I am proud of the hard work, late nights and all other costs I did not know a business required. On the more personal side, I am still trying to conceive however I have been on this infertility journey for far too long to give up now. We all know that road to motherhood is by far the hardest chapter of anyone struggling with infertility, but I honestly appreciate the struggle for so many reasons. This season of life has taught me so many things about myself, life in general, and my business and for that I will forever be thankful.
2020 I AM READY FOR YOU!
There is always hope/light at the end of the tunnel
It doesn’t always feel this way, and there comes times when all you want to do is give up but I thank God that during those times I found strength to keep going. Sometimes the tunnel is dark, scary, and long, but the light comes and it will be the best light that’s ever shone.
Never give up
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your hard work pay off. Fertility Solutions went through a slow patch this year and I struggled to get support and funding to sustain my business. It was during this time that I pushed and invested all my effort into the business to make it a thriving success, and also during that push that I can now reap some of that reward. The key here is patience.
Infertility is a long journey that requires patience
Many of my friends and family members know that I have struggled with infertility since I was diagnosed at the age of 16 years old. I have had countless doctors and fertility specialist visits, spent thousands upon thousands for infertility treatments and yet still had no success. The journey is just that, a journey. For some fertility treatments have given them instant results, for others we continue to hope, trust and sprinkle baby dust.
I am capable of so much more than I ever thought
Who knew my body would be able to handle all those injections, all those tablets, all these hormones, miscarriages, periods, pains and not forgetting the emotional toll this entire process takes on your mental health. Who knew?
Trust me when I say this, ”You are capable of much more than you think.” Knowing all that I know now, I am determined to push boundaries for my business, for myself, for my family and for the infertility community.
It’s okay to ask for help
I am one of those people that seldom ask for assistance when needed because I am determined to make it work myself and don’t want to burden anybody along the way. I learnt the tough way that it is okay to ask for help. I won’t be labeled as a failure, I won’t be undermining my abilities, I won’t be incompetent, I won’t be looked down on, I won’t be burdening anybody.
This blog post is a bit more personal than I am used to but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to open up a little bit more about my experience with infertility, my business and my personal life.
