It was about this time in December when a friend called with the question,
“Lynette, do you still want twins?”
“Why are you asking?” was my first hesitant response. At 52, I felt way past this dream.
Turns out a “suddenly” was about to unfold.
I share what happened next, and the years of tears beforehand, in my newly recorded podcast (link it) about our fertility journey. I hope you’ll listen and send to anyone you know who is waiting for a breakthru.
Why do so many things take so long?? Things we felt certain would happen so fast…
- The promotion
- Finding “the one”
- A pay raise
- Getting pregnant
- Anything else we want NOW!
While a breakthru may happen suddenly, the ramp up usually takes years.
Meanwhile, keep dreaming. Don’t ever stop believing, but maybe put your belief on a back burner and concentrate on what’s in your hand.
Make your waiting active — more like a waiter at a restaurant than waiting (staring) at a stoplight.
