Bedrest is still the shits. No lie. I am so done. But I’m not done. I don’t get to be done until the baby comes. So, how do I make the most of this situation?
I have talked a lot about motivation this month. Because keeping a positive mindset is crucial to getting through tough periods of your life. In my experience, once you go down the dark path, it is that much more difficult to get positive again. And if you aren’t positive, then the whole experience can break you.
I will not be broken by the difficult events of the last 6 months. We have been through a lot; a terminal cancer diagnosis of a family member, a huge financial hit, mold in our house and the accompanying renovations, and of course, terrifying pregnancy complications and bedrest. It seems like we keep taking hits. But I have a family to take care of (in whatever small ways that I can) and I just flat out don’t have the luxury of a break down.
So here are the ways I am staying motivated on bedrest. They might surprise you so make sure you watch and check them out.
Anyone else on bedrest? How did you get through? I would love to hear your comments and thoughts!
