My phone chirped as I was in the middle of a video conference call. I glanced down and recognized the number as a potential client I had just ended a conversation with. Her text read, "Have you frozen your eggs yet?"
I knew instantly that she had found an article of mine online from the year before. Her texts continued to pour in throughout my conference call.
"Do it," she wrote. "You owe it to yourself to do this. Trust me."
The last text referenced the fertility specialist she used, so I pulled up the fertility specialist's website. His fertility clinic was hosting an IVF informational seminar the following weekend. All I had to do was RSVP.
I couldn't. I was scared. It was the answer I knew I was looking for, but I wasn't mentally prepared to act. Preserving my fertility had been on my mind all year. I was turning 38 in a few months, and this urge to take action had slowly crept its way into the forefront of my mind.
I've worked on my spiritual journey hard for the past decade. My meditation practice helped me answer three important questions as I've navigated this emotional fertility journey.
