Thinking happy thoughts

As of the past couple of days, I've been trying to re-wire my brain to be more happy.

For example, I am trying to remember that it is a good thing that me and DH have decided to try for a baby - yes it is, and unfortunately, trying for such a long time and treatment often makes you all caught up in the depression of failure.

And that when I hear that others are planning to have a family, that is also a good thing, and not something to get jealous of (the little green eyed monster in me can easily become jealous esp if others find it easier than we do). And that their outcomes will have no impact on our future, so need to let any jealousy go.

I think generally, trying to have a positive outlook is going to be much healthier in emotional terms.

Off to see counsellor tomorrow too.
