I faced a childless life and came to peace with it

17 Nov

There was a moment there when I seriously thought that I wasn’t going to go through with this. This is great though. I faced a childless life and truly came to peace with it.

There are many advantages in being childless. More time, money and the freedom to be delightfully selfish to name a few. And childless women make the best aunts – many a fridge magnet is testament to this! Lots of women, lots of couples actually, are making the choice to not have children. Childless – so what! It could be a hell of a lot worse.

So that’s why I haven’t been blogging. I have been absorbed and coming to terms with a life without children being born through me. And I feel just fine with that. I am free from just holding on to that one desperate option.

This freedom  has created the space that I needed to make a decision to move forward with excitement about the journey. So that is what I do.

I purchase sperm tomorrow. Stay tuned.

      Moovana, thank you for reading my blog. I understand what you mean but maybe children are the answer somehow? I don’t know?
      Raising children who are tolerant and compassionate seems like the way forward to me.
