Motivational Monday Post 19-Inspire
What inspires you? Usually it’s other people’s inspiring stories, right? It’s always invigorating to hear about other people’s struggles and how they overcame difficult times that eventually lead them to success. Movie plots and news reports love to tell stories about struggles and success and we, as the audience, love to listen! So now it’s your turn to tell a story.
Today’s quote is:
“Don’t be afraid to share your story. It will inspire others.”
Do you think your story can be inspiring to others? I’m going to answer that for you right now….YES!!! Your story will inspire those who listen.
What is your story? Have you ever told anyone before? If not, do you think it’s time to finally give your testimony to a small group of people, like your small group at church? Or maybe someone you randomly met at a store and struck up a conversation with would benefit from your testimony.
As I am writing this, I now feel called to tell you a bit of my story. I have never told anyone this before; however, I feel like now, with the position I am in as a new mom blogger, it is time to put this story out there in hope to inspire others.
I am blessed with 4 beautiful, healthy girls. My oldest being 6 and my youngest being 10 months old. During my 9 years of marriage to my husband, we have become pregnant a total of 6 times. I have experienced two miscarriages in my lifetime.
This is something that my husband and I remained private about for quite some time. It has been a difficult topic and a sad topic to talk about. We struggled initially to become pregnant when we first were trying to conceive back in 2011.
I, like many other women who have challenges conceiving, had many doctors appointments due to infertility and I even had a major complication that surprisingly came up after one miscarriage.
I’m going to spare all the details for now, but I hope to encourage women out there who have had miscarriages or difficulty conceiving to have faith and continue praying during the times that are not going as planned.
Take the time right now and think of who might benefit from hearing your story. Maybe someone reading this blog post would feel encouraged after reading about your testimony. You can always use this platform to share your struggles and successes for other moms in your position to get inspired by.
