Thoughtful Wednesday: Thank You Everyone...

In RL people know me as the strong person who manages never cries. Well, this is what I believe they see me as, but sometimes I am delicate as all human beings. Thinking about it, my low mood started last week but I did not know that until now.

I don't tell many people my frustrations - I talk just to my big sister, she is my living diary - because I’ve always done self-therapy and I manage to deal them in my own private way. I’ve always done that, but recently I feel so fragile in way that self motivation does not help. I am surviving thanks to my lovely blog-friends, it is thanks to you that I can pick myself up and look at the bright side of life.

It seems that, since I started my journey of TTC, every month there is a day in which my mood goes down below and all I need is a little bit of words of encouragement. Hubby is wonderful in encouraging me and showing me great love; but having more words of comfort from my readers boost my mood up even more.

This is why today's Thoughtful Wednesday is dedicated to all of my readers. Because your words and actions make me feel better every time.

On Monday I wrote, yet again, about my mood, about how my mind was playing some negative tricks. I saw everything negative - I even contemplated giving up my dream of becoming a published author. I don't know how I would have done that but in that moment I just figured that I could just hide in my bed and, maybe, cry.

That was not my usual self. I have to say, I really didn't know I could be this vulnerable. I have always being a fighter, I don't give up easy - I was not going to give up, but in that moment I just wanted to be nobody... - after writing my post I retired to my bed. I cuddled to my Hubby and I hoped that the following day would be better.

Thanks God, and his wonderful ways of doing things, the first comment I read made my day look bright. The following comments made it even better and I would like to point out which words touched my soul :)

@ Stephanie thanks for writing "I hope you can overcome it [not being published] and share how you do." This made me start writing a piece that I had set aside for a long time. It might not be published but I am definitely going to send it out :).

@Emma's Lunch thanks for writing "Think positive, I know sometimes it’s hard... I'm sending happy thoughts your way." I was glad you sent those happy thoughts to me, my thoughts were positive after that :) Also the smile of your lovely baby made me feel better.

@Lit Bit, thank you because your words made me realised that I am not going crazy in this journey, both for TTC and publishing. It takes time for both dreams to come true, I just have to be patient and work at it ;)!

@ Mrs. R, thanks for your lovely song. The lyrics were powerful. The song reminded me of one of the lines I like in the Bible "seek and you shall be given" - I am still looking for the right passage, I know it is in Psalms :). Also I have to speak the words that I will be. From that moment on my motto is: I will be a mother very soon, when least I aspect and a successful writer! I never knew how delicate I can become until now and God always takes you to your weakest point before raising you to the glorious mountain, just like he did to Job but throughout I have to be positive and triumphant in mind and thank God for my life. Thank you so much, Mrs R, it feels like you really know me :)!

@ Miss Pancakes, thanks for your big hug... I am feeling better and you are right, God's way is the best. He works in mysterious ways, if I remember well he has always given me everything I prayed for in the right time in my life and he is definitely going to do the same this time :)!

@ Mrs. K, your award made my mood even brighter. I re-read your inspirational post and my heart was filled with joy. Thank you very much :)!


To all my old and new readers, thank you so much for your kind words and actions. Having you is very comforting. Every time I read each thought your express I realise that I don't have to give up and I will never give up because I was born to fight for my happiness and my dreams. And plus if you are given something without a fight the victory is not that sweet :) :D :D!

To be able to set aside fear of failure is one of the most important things I have to overcome in the journey of both motherhood and writer. This is the message, I believe, God is trying to send me.

I also believe that having thoughtful comments from people make one look at life from better angle. I really wish people will realise how therapeutic blogs can be.

  5. I am so glad I found your blog on Momsreview4You's blog hop. Very touched reading your post.

    I added a spot on my blog so that I could use it to self therapy myself. It is a great way to really get your thoughts out, and "release" it.

    Looking forward to staying in touch
