Fake it til you make it

The loss of Aretha Franklin last week hit me deeply.

We have so few artists who stay true to their music without getting pulled astray by their fame and fortune.

But that same day, I came across a new singer who I hope one day to hear more from.

Watch this video and see how she transforms from a shy 13yo to an electrifying performer.

Then she slays it even more a few weeks later here.

In an interview where she’s asked what she taps into when she performs, she says, “When I get on stage, I like switching to a different person and I feel the music.”

We all do that on some level in our own lives.  In order to fill the many roles we have at home, at work, with our friends and family, we often portray different personas to fit the situation.

You wouldn’t act the same way with your co-workers as you would with your friends or family.

At a party, you might have to be more social than you would normally be if you hate small talk…like me.

Sometimes you just have to fake it until you make it.

This is also true when you’re trying to get pregnant.

There are times when you feel like giving up.  These are moments when you have to take a deep breath, slap on a fake smile, and tell yourself it’s ok even if that’s not true right then and there.

Doing this rewires your brain so that you can rise above the moments when you feel stuck and hopeless.

The fertility journey requires a lot of resilience, patience, and commitment.  These simple practice will help keep you moving forward.

There’s obviously a lot more to improving your fertility.  And I teach that to you in my GPS (Get Pregnant and Stay pregnant) Fertility Program.  Hurry!  It’s closing out to new clients in the upcoming weeks as I launch version 2.0…http://zenfertility.com/gps
