I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time. Yes, even though I had to have a surgery and yes, even though we’re facing a bit of a setback in starting our family. I still have been able to find happiness in the midst of the sorrow and sadness, because I’ve changed the story I’ve been telling myself.
For the last year, I’ve been telling myself that the only thing to work towards is becoming a mother. I’ve been telling myself that the only purpose I have left to fulfill is having a baby. Those stories I’ve been telling myself are not only untrue, but have completely depressed me and caused me to think I have nothing else going for me.
But here’s the truth: these are just stories I was telling myself and giving value too. What I didn’t realize was that I could completely change the narrative, and in turn, change the way I felt and acted and faced the challenges in life. My new stories? They have happy endings, even if they take place during hard things. Every morning, I tell myself that I DO have something to offer the world besides being a mother and that I DO have a purpose on this Earth outside of starting a family. I tell myself stories about how strong and brave and confident I am and slowly, but surely, I’m believing them.
After all, I am the author of my life. If my story is making me sad, I’m the only one who can turn it around and make it a vibrant one.
