The Power of Positive Thinking

Call me what you will – debbie downer, negative nancy, pessimist, realist.  Any way you slice it, I’m Bad Luck Ally.  I mean, who else gets pulled over by a cop in her own neighborhood for a rolling stop?  Who else gets hit (and windshield cracked) by a rogue rock from a dump truck she was not behind at the time –twice?  Who else has never won a contest, not even a scratch-off lottery ticket, can never find a parking spot and always catches a red light?

So, maybe my debbie downerness is well-justified.  But maybe I’m bringing some of it on because I expect it.  Maybe my life is one big self-fulfilling prophesy.

Let’s test this theory.  If you love me, let’s try an experiment.  Let’s try some Power of Positive Thinking.

Repeat after me:

  • My recent health problems were just an acid refux flare-up and will be successfully treated with my current medication OR an easy home remedy and I will feel 100% better very soon.
  • AND
  • My fertility issues were primarily caused by the endometriosis and now that it’s gone my husband and I will have no more trouble TTC.

I’m not the girl who asks for thoughts and prayers for an A on a test or my great uncle twice removed’s colonoscopy or some random internet person I’ve never met’s troubles, but I am asking for thoughts and prayers for the above.   If you know me and/or love me, take some time to think some good/happy/positive thoughts with me.  I’m sick of being sick, and I’m sad that my husband and I have not been able to add to our family.   We’ve tried random advice and we’ve done everything the doctors have asked of us.  All I have left to try is positivity and optimism.

In all honesty, it’s the hardest thing I’ve tried yet.

  1. You have my thoughts and prayers. I cannot wait to see your post that says, “I am pregnant!!”, I just feel like it will be very soon. Last time I felt that way about someone’s blog I read, it was her very next post! I know that sounds lame, but it epitomizes positive thinking :).

    By the way, I also have gotten pulled over in my own neighborhood for a rolling stop.
