I’m not what you’d call an extrovert but then I’m not shy to talk about some of the challenges I’ve faced in recent years. Even so, when asked if I’d share the story of our infertility, Emily’s heart condition and our IVF journey, I wasn’t sure if it was something I wanted to do. Why would I want to put myself out there like that? Then I though, why not?

Last month, my lovely friend Anna of Popitha.com welcomed a new gorgeous bundle of loveliness to her family and so to take a little break from her blog, she asked me to write for her site. Over there, you’ll find five reason I did indeed decide to sell my story to a national newspaper and then to a few well know women’s weekly magazines.
The story wasn’t written how I would have written it but then I guess it never would be. I had already poured my heart out in my own recount ‘The hidden struggles of infertility: Our Story’. I had also already told Emily’s story ‘A Heart Warrior Success Story’ so it was odd to read it written from a different perspective. However, I don’t regret the experience.
Would you sell your story?
So much goes on behind closed doors. There is so much we just don’t know about each other’s lives. It’s easy to brush aside the highs and lows, the challenges and pain and talk about the weather instead. It’s a very personal choice what you choose to share with the world. We shared a lot. What would you be prepared to share and would you sell your story?
