"Once you choose hope, anything is possible." - Christopher Reeve
I've been thinking about hope a lot lately. I am not one to put a TON of hope into any given cycle... it is easier that way. If there isn't much hope, there isn't much disappointment- or at least that is what I've tricked myself into thinking. However, I think I've been selling myself short. It is time to choose hope. I have recently realized that it is ok to hope with all I've got, because you know what? It is ok to be broken if after being hopeful it doesn't work out.
Bottom line, it is ok to fail.
Sure, it hurts and I am not very good at it, but there are lessons to be learned in the midst of failure. Lessons I am sure I need to learn. So here goes nothing, I am choosing hope.
...I love it! This post was the perfect reminder as we head into our IVF cycle. I will surely be remembering this as I put on my HOPE necklace every morning.
