Please check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 where I share the things that I have learned to help me on this breastfeeding journey. In the beginning of breastfeeding, I was very frustrated and I internalized it as a reflection of me as a woman.

You are where you need to be because there are lessons that you have to learn and life tests that you need to pass before you can graduate to that next phase.

You Are Exactly Where You Need to Be In Life

In Frugal, Phenomenal

It’s easy to complain that you aren’t where you want to be, however, in reality, you are exactly where you need to be.  I know that sounds harsh.  You may be thinking, “What’s she talking about?  I don’t like what’s happening in my life right now.”  I say that you are where you need to be because there are lessons that you have to learn and life tests that you need to pass before you can graduate to that next phase.
