Don't Fight the Process
The art of surrendering.
There is purpose in this pain.
So when it gets tough, lean into it.
Don't fight it, embrace it.
Give in to the magnificent struggle.
Know what's so beautiful about birth? It's a condensed reflection of the things to come. These reminders, while helpful during the intensity of contractions, don't just apply to labor. They apply to pregnancy, postpartum, and motherhood. They apply to life.
You can choose to fight a battle, or welcome the beauty of sacrifice.
When there is purpose in the pain, it's no longer suffering - it's refining.
