Cheers, dear readers, I recently had the incredible good fortune of seeing one of my heroes, Brené Brown speak live at George Washington’s Lisner auditorium near my home. I was blessed by a friend offering me her ticket to this sold out event when her day’s tasks started to get out of hand for her….

Mark Twain reputedly said, “I have been through some terrible things in my life, some which actually happened.” I’ve always liked this quote because it highlights in a few simple words the harm we can visit upon ourselves by worrying about things that haven’t come to pass, many of which are unlikely, and many of…

Faith It Until You Make It

Cheers, dear readers,   Happy post Halloween for those that celebrate this festive and fun-filled holiday. I have always enjoyed this costume-laden holiday ever since I was a wee tot.

Hi Internets! Eric here again, and I’m not going to lie, this week is kind of a tough one. It’s been tough for me to write, and it may be kind of tough to read. But I think it’s a subject worth talking about. As many of you have probably heard, there’s a lot of…

Hi everybody! Eric here again, with a quick (and I hope interesting) add-on to my last post. Last time ‘round, I talked about how I thought one could, with some forethought, use planning and awareness of the future to actually try to enjoy your time in IVF treatment. A cool idea, I thought <pats self…

Cheers, dear readers,   This past July, I had the honor of attending my third World Domination Summit (WDS) conference in Portland, Oregon. I’ve mentioned here before the main tenant of this conference is “How to live a remarkable life in a conventional world.” I know firsthand that there are many days on the infertility…

Cheers, dear readers,   We’ve all done it – woken up on the wrong side of the bed with toxic dis-empowering thoughts right out of the gate. We shoot ourselves in the foot before we’ve even gone for our first bathroom break.   For example, how often do you think these two thoughts first thing…

Cheers, dear readers,   Along the infertility journey, there are many unpredictable and often quite uncomfortable twists and turns. There are definitely days where all feelings of happiness felt like they had been swept away from me never to return – like a vacuum had sucked them from my soul. If you are a Harry…
