Is it Worth The Wait? Let’s first set the mood by playing the video below. It seems like I am really enjoying adding some vocal inspiration to my blog posts this week.
For a moment I was having writers block so I asked my husband to give me something, anything to get me inspired. He gave me a quote “You can’t taste the sweet without tasting the sour.”
“Worth the Wait” is the question I ask myself on a daily basis, Is it really Worth The Wait? The lyrics from this song could not be more perfect to answer this question. I am going to share some of the lyrics that make sense to me when it comes to IVF.
“At First, wait, won’t get it on a plate, You’re gonna have to work for it Harder and harder= I thought my first round of IVF was the ticket. Clearly that was not the case.
“And I know cause I’ve been there before, Knocking on the doors with rejection. And you’ll see cause if it’s meant to be, Nothing can compare to deserving your dream”= I do believe “If it’s meant to be, it will happen” I have been knocking for over two and a half years on the fertility doors, once they open I know that it will be worth the wait.
“It’s amazing, it’s amazing all that you can do”= Going through IVF is such a challenge both mentally and physically. We are all AMAZING women for being so strong, courageous and fighters for Motherhood.
“Patience, now frustrations in the air”= I think we all can beat this one with a stick!!!!!!
“And people who don’t care. Well, it’s gonna get your down”= Probably the understatement of the year! We have to field so many insensitive comments daily from strangers, loved ones, friends who just don’t understand infertility. On one hand you can’t fault them but on the other it gets really old after awhile. I have learned to just let it roll off, it’s not worth getting worked up over. I used to keep mental notes on all the crappy comments people would say to me and then one day I just said to myself, “Fuggetaboutit.”
“And you’ll fall, yes you will hit a wall. But get back on your feet. And you’ll be stronger and smarter”= Yes, I have fallen four times now with failed cycles and have hit a wall but I have recovered. I am stronger and smarter each time I experience my fertility disappointments and failures. I know these set backs are just temporary.
For today’s National Infertility Awareness Week Giveaway, I chose Essie nail polish color in “Worth The Wait.” It’s a gorgeous coral-kissed pink. I know a lot of you TTC Sisters may not be into bright pink nail polish, I wanted to make sure I had some neutrals that would appeal to you. Wearing this color reminds us each day that our dream will become reality.
So the question is; Do you think it’s Worth the Wait?
I feel that it might not be instantaneous, tomorrow or even this year but we are here doing everything we can to make our dream of being a Mother a reality.
