Hello again. I hope this finds you well.
I wanted to take a moment today to share something I did in the midst of my grieving process that helped me to take a few steps forward. If I were a tattoo kind of a gal (sometimes I toy with it…I really do, but I just can’t get the guts to do it!) I would have gotten a small tattoo that would have served as a reminder of my two babies for me. Instead, I decided to create a bracelet that I could wear, something I could see every day. I inscribed it with the words “Create Beauty” which had become my mantra by that time. I added two birthstones – one for each month I lost my babies. And I wore it every day until it broke.
When it broke I knew I didn’t need to wear it any longer. But I did still need to keep it with me. So it still sits atop my desk, reminding me of what I lost, and what my purpose is in this life. To Create Beauty. To not let a day go by without tapping into Universal Love, to find something to cherish, to delight in, to find radiantly wonderful every single day. It’s not easy to find that thing every day…but when I do – oh, is it worth it.
I encourage you to think about something you might be able to create for yourself that can serve as a Memory Keeper. What holds meaning for you? How might you honor this experience? If you are compelled to do so, I’d love to hear feedback either here, or on the Share Page.
