Seeing those two pink lines was one of the scariest, most exciting and confusing times of my entire life. I had always imagined finding out I was pregnant would be amazing and filled with nothing but pure joy; but for us it wasn’t. It was sitting on the floor, at the top of the staircase, dumbfounded, confused, terrified and completely lost. Just staring at each other, and for the first time, not sure what to say. First minute: excitement. Next minute: scared. My emotions seemed to change every minute for the next couple of hours. From happiness to tears in a split-second.
Did anyone else ever feel this way? Am I a horrible person? A horrible mother? Or is this normal?
We came back from traveling with no money, and no real direction. And in one life-changing second, those two pink lines gave us a clear, new direction. It grounded me, in a way that I didn’t realize I needed. I came back not knowing what the next step was. Where we were going, where we would travel to next, how we would make the money, what we were going to do with our lives. Then you get a surprise like this. It is the universe guiding you; showing you the path that you are meant to be on. This is your next grand adventure.
TRUST IN THE PROCESS.
