“The present moment is significant, not as the bridge between past and future, but by reason of its contents, which can fill our emptiness and become ours, if we are capable of receiving them” — Dag Hammarskjold

Heart in CloudsWhen you are working on building your family, there can be a tremendous pull to re-live past mistakes or past hurts (so they don’t happen again), or think about what might happen in the future.

However, when you spend time re-living the past or putting yourself out into the future, you leave out the time when you can truly experience life. Traveling forward or backward in time leaves you feeling lost and empty as soon as you come back to present day.

When you spend time truly engaging in this moment right here right now, you are giving yourself the opportunity to fill up.

Imagine spending the day thinking about what decision you should make, or worrying about the outcome of the latest test you’ve had. When you crawl into bed at night and think back over the day, how are you going to feel? Will it feel like a “successful” day? One filled with great moments? Or is it going to feel like another “lost” day. A day where no movement happened? One more day that has been lost to the struggle to conceive your family.

Now imagine spending a good portion of the day engaged in the moment. Feeling the emotions that come up. Noticing the world around you — really being engaged in what’s happening. When you crawl into bed, how will it feel?

You will need to practice present moment living to really know, but I can share a couple of outcomes you can expect. First, you are going to feel more alive than you have felt in a long time. And, your body and your fertility will respond to that new good feeling place.

Ready to make the decision to live in this moment and fill yourself up?
