Place – Whitman, MA
Today is the first day of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Until this morning, I wasn’t sure if I would participate in this project this year. I wanted to wait and see what felt right when I woke up. My heart was still so fragile last year, and I found it really hard to keep up with the daily prompts. The project was therapeutic but overwhelming in many ways.
My heart is still broken, but I think it’s a little stronger a year later. Exploring my feelings is still really important. And, of course, so is remembering Elliot and talking about my grief.
We didn’t have much of a sunrise today. It’s wet and gray. Even with the dreary weather, I still see the beauty around me.
My intention for this month is to explore and appreciate the beauty in my life, both past and present. I owe it to Elliot to always look for the beautiful things in life.
