Creating, Feeling

“Having a miscarriage was one of the most gut-wrenching experiences of my life. Being pregnant plugged me into some energy force that I’d never known and then the loss plunged me into a grief I’d never experienced. But now, 9 months later – I understand so much more about myself, about love, strength, my want to mother – and most of all, how resilient I am. How strong I am. The outfit above makes me feel like a bad-ass. Feathers still find me to reassure me to *trust*. I am fierce and loving and I know I can handle what life throws my way. Grief made me stronger. Loss made me who I am today. A bad-ass xo.”

Just a little something I made over the weekend. More bad-ass, more grief, more loss, more hope.

    Our little sparks are playing somewhere magnificent together! It was really hard for me to go through also. You will be an amazing mama ~ so enlightened already… Miscarriage is such a personal journey ~ and for me 3+ years later something that can still bring me to tears. Blessings.

      Thank you for the kind words and for sharing your story. It is such a personal journey and I’m so glad that people are willing to share theirs with me. And I love referring to them as sparks. xo
