More to learn from villains...

Binge watched another 4 episodes of Flash yesterday night.  Ugh, I'm hooked.  Another few are on my agenda today. 

So back to my email yesterday -  all the villains have clear missions.  

No distractions.  

Just FOCUS - Follow One Course Until Successful.  

But you know what else they have?

Patience.  Lots and lots of it.

Cuz all this revenge stuff to right their perceived wrongs takes a lot of planning and scheming.

Harken back to the great movie "Shawshank Redemption".  It took Andy nigh close to 20 years to dig his way out of his jail cell using a tiny rock hammer with the help of a gigantic poster of Raquel Welch to cover said hole in wall.

Intellectually, you know it takes time to improve your fertility enough to get pregnant.   

I can tell you it takes about 90 days for eggs and 70 days for sperm to mature.  

So at minimum, we're talking 3 months of just prep.  And the older a woman is, the longer the time needed usually.  

Once we start building a solid foundation during the prep phase with optimizing sleep, nutrition, supplements, exercise, lifestyle, and decreasing stress, the actual time to a healthy pregnancy varies from several more months to even years.

But that logical understanding doesn't always translate to your emotions, thoughts, and actions.

I see people give up way too soon when they're trying to conceive.  And there's nothing I can say or do to change their mind because they no longer believe in themselves.  

Figure a way to go back to your truth, no matter what the setbacks are.  That inner knowing that things will work out is what keeps you moving forward.  Because you know with every fiber of your being that it will all be ok.

For me, that faith comes with time (patience is needed here also) and consistency through daily meditation and talking out my struggles with friends and family at least once a week.  At the peak of my turmoil in dealing with my separation, I talked with friends almost daily for months. 

For you, it could be the same path.  Or something else like journaling, connecting with nature, taking a hot bath - anything that will quiet your mind so you can hear the inner whispers of your truth.
