Thinking Positively

Last night we set our alarm to wake up at 6AM so we could go on our walk. Now keep in mind that we both love our sleep, then again who doesn't? So when we were talking about waking up the night before I was totally giddy and couldn't wait....until the alarm started barking at me. I wanted to snooze my alarm and roll back into bed. As soon as I started to doze back to my deep sleep Sarah woke up and started talking really loud, I mean loud!! "Wake up!". I looked at her and said I want to kill you! We got up put our sneakers on and got our doggy Jake and headed out the door. At 6AM it was still dark and cold. We brought our phone with us to know exactly how long our walk was and before you knew it our walk was done and the sun started pealing through. We finished our 1.6 mile walk had a healthy breakfast, took a shower all before 8AM. It was nice. For once I didn't feel rushed and I left for work on time.

We have 3 months and 4 days until our IVF appointment and we are trying so hard to get ourselves into shape mentally and physically. So when it comes to work munching on unnecessary food is just not allowed. Now I'm sure others feel this way but sometimes I feel that their is food all the time in our office. Someone is always bringing their "leftover" food so they don't eat it and gain weight but heck lets all just eat it. Trust me, its easy to munch on those cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies, but not for me! I said no to all of it! As hard as it was it felt good in fact when my other co-workers started eating it I went to the stairs and climbed them four times and that right there was a realization factor for me. I had to tell myself that I could do it and think positive.

After work I got home and opened a package from my dad. Inside was this plaque.

Wow! If that doesn't hit you when you read it then I don't know what will. I started thinking... Patience and preserving which is being in a state of peace, calm, hopefulness, faith; having an attitude of gratitude, and thus, the magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish, it's because we choose to keep a clear attitude, positive, hopeful, faithful and always have that feeling that no matter what happens in life or on our journey of TTC that we are positive and unaffected by the big bumps pushing all those non believers, unrealized, and unfulfilled people away from us.

I will keep this close to my heart and remember to never, ever give up. No matter what is thrown at us!
