So I bought myself this coffee mug today...definitely not because I NEED another coffee mug but because it says exactly what I aspire to do in my life.
I just send my bio over to the Centering Corporation for my blog post to be published online for their Grief Digest magazine. I’m so excited that my story will be shared with a larger audience and I hope that it reaches someone’s heart and helps them heal through their grief.
Sharing the story of my miscarriage was far from easy. It was the most painful experience of my life, and I had to re-live it to share it. But as I wrote it I kept thinking that while it was cathartic for me to put it all into words, it could potentially help someone else heal.
I want to inspire people. I want to share what I’ve been through so people can see there is hope.
I’m no one special.
I’m not famous.
I’m not rich.
My life isn’t so thrilling that I have my own reality tv show.
I certainly am not perfect.
I’m a regular, real person...I have a regular middle income job, I live in a simple rented home in the city, I drive a Volkswagen not a Range Rover, and most of my wardrobe consists of scrubs and workout clothes.
Those things bring up one word to me...relatable.
I’m not special, but I have been through a lot. And I never compare my life experiences and struggles to others because I know there are people out there dealing with things that are just plain horrible. Mine are mine and theirs are theirs. And I know there are a lot of other people who have or will go through similar things that I have. I hope by sharing my experiences it will help them not feel alone and give them hope that there is light after the darkness, and that there is even light during the darkness.
