The Importance of Positivity
I am just now getting back from my spring break trip and return to Disney aka the fifth circle of hell and I will have a post about this trip shortly, but today, I am sharing a new podcast with a very inspirational woman to me.
On this last Tuesday of March, I am sharing a very special podcast highlighting another inspirational woman to me, my college roommate, Jill. As we share in the podcast, Jill and I met on the first day of freshman move-in for college, became instant best friends, and lived together for the next five years including the year after we graduated from college. Jill and I have always shared a number of similarities, our birthdays are one day apart, we were both business majors, we both worked for the same company out of college, our husband’s birthdays are a day apart, we got engaged a month apart from each other and married two months apart.
A big difference between the two of us, though, was our path to motherhood. Twelve years ago I started trying to get pregnant and ten years ago delivered my one and only son, Will. Jill started trying to get pregnant long after me; however, it took her six years to finally meet her son and it was through an adoption.
Positivity Despite Setbacks
Her struggle and journey to become a parent has inspired me for years as I watched her remain positive despite the constant setbacks including a failed adoption a month before the baby was due. Most people would be altered for the worst because of all of these challenges, and yet Jill remained positive and never wavered in her faith. Her strength and positivity in the face of adversity has inspired me for years, and I hope you find her story inspirational as well.
If you desire something in your heart, don’t be afraid to pursue that desire no matter what obstacles get in your way. You have that desire for a reason and your path to success will likely have many setbacks, but when you finally reach your ultimate dream, you realize that it’s all part of a greater plan and well worth the journey.
