The Power in Experience – “It was never about me, it was about them”

It is human nature to feel sorry for oneself, and fall deeper into the abyss of emotions when we aren’t in a good place. But if we can find the strength within, to pick ourselves up and find the lesson in each experience, it will bring you closer to peace, closer to yourself, and closer to what you’re striving for.

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. In the words of Darius Rucker,

“For every stoplight I didn’t make. Every chance I did or I didn’t take. All the nights I went too far. All the girls that broke my heart. All the doors I had to close. All the things I knew but I didn’t know. Thank God for all I missed, cause it led me here to this.”

Reflecting back on my time going through IVF, I wasn’t able to see the bigger picture as to why, we were so “unlucky” to not be able to conceive naturally. I experienced anger, frustration and often asked the question, “why me?!” For a brief time, I even lost touch with my faith. I couldn’t’ fathom why this experience would ever be meant for me….WHY??? Then when we got pregnant, and my body began to nourish two beautiful babies…it hit me. This experience was part of my life because my children were meant to be together. My son and my daughter were destined to begin this journey of life with each other, from the very beginning. It was never about me, it was about them. Everything is meant to be, just as it is.
