Yes we can!

Name: Michelle
Age: 34 (soon to be 35)
Diagnosis: PCOS
TTC: For over 8 yrs. In the process I have had 4 lost babies. 2 early miscarriage and 2 ectopics.
Currently: Trying to save money for IVF

It is ICLW again. Welcome new readers and regular readers. I hope your week is going great. Mine is ok.

Yesterday was a good day for the country! I thought it was amazing to see all those people there in Washington DC. I was not someone who was all excited this election. I really was not "into" it as everyone seemed to be but after the election it has started to grow on me. I was excited yesterday. We needed a change. We needed this country to be happy and excited about something. We need people to get involved and to care again. By the looks of things we have achieved those things. Yesterday was a historic day and I am glad that I was able to witness it. My hope is that this feeling continues. That we don't forget that what we thought was possible yesterday IS possible next week, next month, next year, in 10 years. That all that we have achieved so far is nothing compared to what we can achieve in the years to come. That we continue to move forward not dwelling on the mistakes of the past but using them as a stepping stone to our future. For all our faults, for all our mistakes we still live in one of the greates countries in the world! A country where the possibilities are endless as long as we don't forget "united we stand, divided we fall".

Yes we can!

Note to self: I really need to take my own advice.

Hey, just stopping by for ICLW -- I agree, what a wonderful day yesterday was, it was also sobering. We have a tough road ahead of us as a country, but I'm very excited for the new direction this new leader will take us in. Good luck with everything and stop by my blog if you get a chance!

I wish I had your optimism... I unfortunately have not been caught up in this wave of "change" supposedly coming to our country. I have little faith in politicians, unfortunately. But I'm still super proud to be an American, so at least I have that. :)

I definitely felt the hope yesterday, and hope that I can carry that hope into my own life and feel some of it. I hope that for you, too.

taking our own advice is most often the hardest. :(

Yesterday was wonderful and yes, sometimes taking our own advice is the hardest.

Mostly - we ALL need to take our own advice. That would change the make up of our country significantly, yes?
