I have been meaning to write something somewhere, and CarlyMarie's Capture Your Grief Challenge, gave me the perfect push to start. The idea is simple, warm and fuzzy: Each October day has a theme, all you have to do is have a moment of each day to write (and share if you so wish) something about your grief journey. Carly Marie started this five years ago in the name of her son Christian as part of the Pregnancy, Infant and Child Loss Awareness Month and is now a movement that has a beautiful life of its own.
My plan is to hopefully stick with the entire project but we'll see what actually happens. Its funny, I've always been a planner and a bit of a control freak. Olivia's harsh departure has definitely slapped all plans and control away from me... If anyone is thinking how great to be able to see the learning or positives in this, just know, there are no positives about my daughter not being here... I'm sure life could've shown me to let go of plans and control in a less cruel way. But yes, I am planning on sticking with this.
