When my kids and I were in Hawaii last week, my 13yo begged me to take her to Waimea Bay on the north shore of Oahu. She wanted to rock jump.
I got there, stood looking at the rock which was about 25 feet high, saw the waves crashing against the face and told her that I thought it would be too dangerous for her so she couldn't do it.
But as we stood there watching a few local boys jump off, I could see that if they timed it right, it would be safe(r). They had to jump right after the wave crested so they wouldn't slam against the rocks and could swim back to shore.
So I let her go.
She climbed up. I could see that the locals were helping her with the timing. It took about 15 minutes for her to jump.
Then she did 4 more jumps. Each taking less time.
She said she was scared standing at the top. But once she committed to it and jumped, it was exhilarating. Because she knew she had conquered her fear.
And ultimately that was the reason why I let her jump 25 feet into the bay. To overcome her fears, grab the opportunity in front of her, and just go for it.
As we get older, we talk ourselves out of many wonderful opportunities to grow and learn because we're terrified to the point of inaction... terrified of failure, of success, of being disappointed yet again, of not measuring up, of being different, of ____ (fill in your own blank).
It is these fears that hold you back from your dreams.
Of having a child.
You have to learn how to let go of them.
This is no longer about just your physical body not doing what you want it to do - i.e. get pregnant and have a healthy child 9 months later.
No, this is also very much about your mindset. Of looking for the light and not drowning in the darkness of your disappointments.
It's only when you step into the unknown can the gifts come to you. They may not be what you expect.
They often aren't.
But methinks the treasures waiting for you are worth jumping into that choppy, murky water 25 feet below.
Just like my daughter had the locals helping her out with her jumps, I can guide you into what seems like the murky waters of your fertility journey with my GPS (Get Pregnant and Stay pregnant) Fertility program.
To help you get closer to celebrating Mother's Day in your own right, the program will be offered for a discount of 44% at $111/mo until Sunday May 13, 6pm PST.
As an extra bonus, if you sign up by Monday May 7, I'll send you the GPS Fertility Program module about how to use an innovative yet little known therapy at home. It's proven to jumpstart fertility, even in women who are considered "severely infertile" due to poor egg quality, low ovarian reserve, or multiple failed IVF cycles. In fact, one study of 701 Japanese women with an age range of 26-52yo and at least 4 years of failure with other medical fertility methods achieved a 22.3% pregnancy rate.
