Everything has a timeline, right? Well... not having a baby

November 30, 2020 · Magda Dorobanțu

We are taught from early-on in life that everything has a timeline in life and you should better stick to it. You go to kindergarten, then to school, then you get a job, then you fell in love & get married and then you have a baby. We are also taught that doing all the right things at the right time gets you what you aim for, right? Well, not really. And I know that up until having a baby, all that I achieved in life was a result of what I was doing and taking the right steps. And when trying for a baby I discovered that even though I was doing the right thing, it still was not happening for me and that gave me the feeling of loss of control. My plans were not working out anymore, there was no right next step. So, how do you deal with that? I learned the hard way that I am not in control, especially with the human body (an amazing machine, which we did not figured yet out).

Holding on to the idea of how things should be is costly. A cost that can go as high not living the life that is available, missing out on the life that is here and now. Are you willing to pay it? Or you would like to find a different way?
