things i’ve learnt this week / 03

A body pillow is essential during pregnancy.
As is a loving and attentive partner.
I’ve always appreciated how attentive my husband is but
 I don’t think I’ve been more grateful for him
 than during this pregnancy.
I’ve heard women many a time utter the words,
Men will never understand what a woman goes through.”
Ok.  Maybe not literally, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t
empathetic, patient and attentive to our needs.
Almost every day my husband tells me what a great job I’m doing
 carrying our baby and each time I remind him that
 his love and support plays equal parts in it  all.
I love you husband 🙂

Nothing brings me more joy 
than connecting with people.
I’ve always known this makes me happy,
I mean who doesn’t love the power of connection?
But I think as we get older and more mature
we tend to connect with people on a deeper level
which in turn, satisfies us in a deeper way.
It’s more than being content, it’s the joy of being understood.
It’s what I love most about writing –
the idea that someone, somewhere
is relating to you in some kind of way (and vice versa).
It’s a beautiful thing.

Like anything in life, maintaining a positive mind frame requires practice.
A comment I receive most about my blog is
 how positive the undertone is.
It has taken a significant amount of time to teach my mind
 to weed out the negative and focus on the positive.
 Our minds will never be perfect, we will have off days where 
 a particular thought will take over us for longer than we’d like.
The important thing to know is that we have the tools,
 within ourselves, to turn that around.
And eventually, with enough practice and reflection, 
we can start to see things as they really are –
not so bad after all.

Have a wonderful weekend friends.
