Jim Carrey once told Oprah Winfrey how he wrote himself a check for $10 million dollars for "acting services rendered" when he was unknown and broke.
That dream came true 3 years later when he was paid that amount for the box office hit "Dumb and Dumber".
Given the competitiveness of the film industry and how only a few reach the elite status, it took a lot of ballz to dream that big.
He saw it in his mind, believed it was possible, and worked hard for the success that eventually came to him.
One of the biggest obstacles in women over 40 trying to conceive, who've had multiple failed IVFs, or recurrent miscarriages is that they don't believe it's possible.
The hope is there.
But deep down, they don't believe it. I can see it in their dull eyes, the flat tone of their voice, their slumped posture.
They lack conviction.
Because they've accepted the current situation as etched in stone - unchangeable.
The deep-seated belief needed to do the hard work is absent or so frail it crumbles when results don't happen fast enough.
The resistance that comes from past failures and people saying it's not possible override the hope.
Faith is about believing in the unseen, something that can't be proven. Knowing that if you make the right choices consistently, things work themselves out somehow.
Faith is about honoring your body and giving it what it needs so it can do what it's designed to do.
Stop treating your body as if it betrayed you.
Stop getting mad when Aunt Flo comes.
You treat it like an enemy, it's going to fight right back.
Instead, appreciate it for all the things it does for you every second, every hour, every day.
Listen to what it needs.
And develop the discipline to give it just that. The right foods, enough sleep, lots of water.
It's back to the basics, ladies.
