The other day I had a bit of a mental break. It was hard and it didn't feel good, but it happened. I wrote this post, and then I felt awful about it (side note: my favorite comments always come from those posts that I have to really fight myself to not take back down because they are too real and I'm afraid of what people will say). I was pretty down, and then I came across Holly's blog and I got a good dose of perspective. I took getting pregnant for granted, it was easy for me. Would I love my child any more or less if I had struggled? Probably not, but I need to be more grateful for her and this life that I live. I need to be more patient and understanding. I'm already working on these things and they are not easy. I shared these thoughts with my husband; he agreed that he needs to work on these things too. So, we will try together, succeed & fail together, learn together. I will keep sharing my failings & my successes, they are real and they are who I am.
