I just have to brag this morning about my Fertile Yoga students. They are an ever changing, awesome (borrowing from Dr. Richlin) group of courageous, hardy women.
My Fertile Yoga students inspire me. I’ve said it before and it remains true. They inspire me by showing up. By walking the walk of trying to conceive, by supporting their bodies, minds and emotions through infertility treatment. They inspire me by checking in with themselves and seeing how they feel, below the surface. They inspire me by talking about it with each other in peer support groups, by offering each other suggestions, by listening to each other’s stories. Sometimes they inspire me just by nodding at each other as they listen patiently to someone’s pain. They often calm each other as they hear about a procedure or protocol that they are about to experience. They celebrate each step of the fertility journey with each other, knowing that each step of fertility treatment that goes well is a tremendous relief. They understand each other, even when they come from different backgrounds, different towns, different upbringings, different educations. They understand the desire for a family, for a child.
Yes, very inspiring. Love my students!!!
Here are some images that I find inspiring. A visualization or two to help you on your day…. If you find one inspiring, make it your desktop image. Sink into it. Print it, put it on your bathroom mirror. Let it inspire you, lift you up. If there's not one here, take a camera, create one. Take a paintbrush, paint one. Find a visual image that lifts you up and allow it to do so.
