Trying To Conceive, Dealing With RemindersHalloween is the beginning of the holiday season which revolves around kids. How do you survive these family and kid oriented days and nights like Halloween?
Well, for starters, you really can't get away from it. Depending on where you live, you'll probably have kids at your door. It's easy to be bitter that everyone else seems to be out there having fun with their kids while you're marinating in thoughts of failure and feelings of being left out.
If You Are Trying To Get Pregnant and Dealing With Infertility, Try These Survival Tactics During HalloweenMy best advice is the following:
-Join in as much as possible - when I was TTC, at times like halloween, I would have fun opening my door to all the kids. I'd make a mental note of the cute little costumes imagining how my baby/child would look when I dress them up (yes, I know this is all before they're conceived, but if you really want something, you have to behave as if you already have it).
-Engage the kids in conversation when they come to your door. It really is fun to talk to them - ask them about their costumes and compliment them on how good they look. Being around kids will attract kids into your life - remember, what you put out "there" comes back to you.
-When I was TTC, it wasn't the kids that made me feel bad, it was usually the parents who were endlessly going on and on about all the fun things they were going to do. Try to have fun with the kids on Halloween - it will help you visualize you future life with one of your own. Remember, you will attract to yourself what you focus on.
