Gabriella Union and Dwayne Wade

@gabunion @dwyanewade, thanks for sharing your journey with the world. This statement is everything. It’s so easy for people to “justify” or “judge” a woman’s inability to conceive when infertility often comes with an undiagnosed, underlying cause~~~ “Towards the end of my fertility journey, I finally got some answers, because everyone had just sort of chalked it up to ‘You’re a career woman, you’ve prioritized your career, you waited too long and now you’re just too old to have a kid,'” she said. “‘And that’s on you for wanting a career.'” “The reality is I actually have adenomyosis,” she added. “There is nothing you can do about adenomyosis. The gag is that I had adenomyosis in my early 20s.” Gabriela Union

Rest

First Snow

“Thank goodness for the first snow. It was a reminder — no matter how old you became and how much you’d seen, things could still be new if you were willing to believe they still mattered.” — Candace Bushnell

Miscarriages

“I felt like I failed, because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” Obama, 54, said. “We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken. So, that’s one of the reasons why I think it’s important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen, and the biological clock is real.” Michelle Obama on GMA opening up about miscarriages, IVF, and the importance of bringing these topics to the forefront. Thank you @michelleobama, you continue to inspire and educate us! 🙌🏽

Friday Feels

Important reminder for me, thanks @bobbischellerer for posting this morning! It is easy to take things personally when in reality other people’s actions are out of your control. I’m learning now finally as a mother ( 4 years down the road!) to take care of myself first, and to stop trying to please others around me. In turn this benefits my daughter and her needs. I always worried about not making others around me happy, a form of control they always had on me. This is not a realistic way of life. Because, unfortunately, no matter how hard you try, someone will always have something to say or feel that is not always the nicest. I’m learning if I worry about all of these things then I am consumed, and I can’t come with a clear, healthy mind to take care of my daughter, husband, and myself. I’m learning time heals all, let it solve the negative emotions of others, and let yourself be in peace. .
