Rule of the heart:
Simplicity - find the simplest way to do things
The Implementation Tool:
The baby steps method
Once you found out you were pregnant, you were probably filled with joy and excitement. But then the questions and concerns began:
"What should I do?"
"How should I prepare?"
"What can I eat?"
"What medical checks do I need to perform?"
"How to prepare my home?"
A load of questions and concerns can bring many women stress and confusion.
The common response to such situations is ”paralysis”: fear that prevents your progress.
Some women take action and some do not. Instead of taking action, some will bury their heads in the sand like an ostrich and wait for time to pass and for problems to resolve themselves. This way they do not experience the whole pregnancy and come to the birth unprepared.
What kind of woman are you?
Pregnancy and childbirth are part of the journey into the unknown, when the end has one major goal: the birth of your baby. Every pregnancy is different. No pregnancy is the same as its predecessor.
Imagine that your pregnancy (including birth) is like a 9-story building with a spiral staircase . The basis of the Baby Steps Method is that you do not have to know all the steps beforehand and how many steps you will climb every time. You do not have to charge up all the steps at once, and you also don't need to know how many steps you'll climb each time. You must go the number of steps that are right for you at each stage according to your pace, until you reach your destination. The climb to the ninth floor consists of many steps. The baby steps method breaks your journey down into simple and easy components. The collection of simple steps will help you move forward in your journey of pregnancy and birth.
The first step is usually the scariest, but once you take it, all opens up for you. It is important that you take the first step in a proactive manner instead of feeling forced to do so.
"Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces to your aid. But the first essential is that you begin."
~Robert Collier (Author)
You should take your pregancy period in small steps.
When you feel you are entangled, think about your baby. He is also developing in small steps. Every day, every week he is growing and developing in the womb. And after he is born his development continues to take small steps − he raises his head, he smiles.
The baby step method works off the belief that processes have their own pace. If you push them too hard you won't necessarily get there faster, but you will be more tired.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
~ Leonardo da Vinci (Painter, sculptor and inventor)
