Miracle In The Making


We just had the 19 week scan of Marisa’s tummy and wow what a spin out!

Technology is an amazing thing – it gets into every single industry so we can all benefit. To slop a bit of goo on your skin and run what looks like a barcode scanner over your tummy so that you can see a living breathing human inside is pretty awesome.

The thing that amazed me most was the development of the baby’s spine… it was perfect. Seeing every vertebrae magically interlocking into each other was phenomenal.

The 4 chambers of the heart pulsing away beautifully, both sides of the brain forming exactly as it should, every finger and toe in perfect alignment.  Sometimes i feel pretty chuffed with myself when i manage to change the oil in my car but seeing this little miracle transforming into a little person just blows me away.

We are over the half way mark now and just cant wait to meet our new member of the family, picking names is the next big task to think about.

Its a pretty special time right now and we are enjoying every minute. A friend of mine gave me some nice advice today since his baby daughter was born not long ago… he said, “dont listen to any of the negative stuff people say: things like, you dont get any sleep once the baby is born  and your life changes forever and say goodbye to those quiet nights at home. Ignore that stuff because what I have found is the bad stuff is half of what I expected and the good stuff is ten times better than I expected”

Bring on the good times!

    Hi Matt,
    yes indeed, you are witnessing a miracle. It’s so awesome that we are able to take a sneak peak preview of the miracle in progress.

    Your friend has offered some very wise advise Matt.
    Ones negative experience doesn’t necessarily become another’s, and yes, the positive FAR out weighs the other.
    Some people seem to just enjoy spoiling things for others.

    Awesome post Matt.

    This is my favorite of all your posts, Matt! You are so right!! 25 years later, I still hear mothers complaining about this or that. Sure there are challenging times, but it is so cool! This is the most fun, most fulfilling thing in the world! Just like you’re seeing the physical development of your child now, you’ll see it for the rest of your life! Then the emotional growth is even greater! When you can simply observe your child around age 2 figuring out that he’s (did you say it’s a boy, or maybe that you’re waiting?) an individual and when you watch him learn how much control he has over the world – it’s awesome! (it’s the terrible twos) You two will be wonderful parents! You are so into learning~ I tell everyone – my favorite parenting book (and tapes) that I wish I could be an affiliate marketer for is “Parenting with Love and Logic” by Cline and Fay. This is an easy to read book – I raised my 8 children with the Love and Logic principles and we’ve had a fun life!!! And they are all contributing members of society! 🙂

    It is so much fun to follow Marisa’s progress. It brings back glorious memories … Did you get pictures? Can you post them? Isn’t it miraculous to see fingers and toes, a developing brain and a beating heart. This little one is relating to you already. Ah the beauty of life. Thanks for letting us vicariously take a small step of the journey with you:)

You must be logged in to post a comment. is a blog website aimed at those interested in personally developing themselves to achieve greater financial freedom enabling them to find their true purpose in life. In this blog you will find personal experiences and ideas from Matt and his own quest for financial freedom.

Matt worked in the theatre industry as a lighting technician for over 15 years. Although the work was satisfying and allowed him to explore his creative talents, Matt was ruled by the need to swap his time for money to survive.

In 2005, Matt quit the theatre industry to educate himself in property investing and personal development. Since then has created his own property networking group that has over 200 members and now invests full time in property and internet marketing.

On his journey from paid employee to entrepreneur, Matt has discovered that personally developing himself and creating a winning mindset was critical to achieving any and all of his dreams and goals.

This blog is dedicated to sharing the pathway to those hopes and dreams.
