Life lessons when you’ve got babies on the brain

When you are wondering what to do before pregnancy, you can learn many lessons from your daily life. Today, I’m sharing one example of this and the important role it plays as you prepare yourself for this amazing time.

We compare.  We pull others and ourselves down as we do this.


“I am having trouble getting moving today.  I only got 6 hours of sleep.”

“That’s twice as much as me.”


“I’m hungry, I haven’t eaten in 5 hours.”

“I’ve got you beat.”

“Yes, but I’m nursing.”


“I’m not where I want to be; I’m not where she is and she is and she is.”

“You’re also not where you used to be.”

“But I’m also not yet where I’m going.”


We do this with our loved ones, with strangers, with ourselves.

We have the power to turn everything into a fight, a comparison with negative implications for someone.

What good does it do us?

Not much.

trust yourselfYou must learn to trust yourself and to be okay where you are.

You can trust yourself.  There was some time in your life, even if it was a fleeting moment, where you sat in trust.  It may have been in infancy or perhaps more recently, but that moment existed.

Whether that trust has found you again or if it is still hiding in the crooks and crannies of your being know that it is there, waiting to be rediscovered, awoken, cherished.

When you learn to trust yourself, you find your way to people in your world who you can fully and deeply trust, and that is incredibly empowering.

If you’re ready to explore how trust can awaken your mama spirit and help you step into the role of mama right now, regardless of when you start trying to conceive, I encourage you to join us for Creating Fertile Ground.  You can learn more and register here.

    I think this is very important…trust in yourself, from pregnancy, or else you can establish a long journey of second guessing yourself as a mother. I’m much more confident now, but this is still a learning curve for me and my youngest is 7!
