Day 179

It is International Women’s Day is today. I appreciate today as it sheds a light on the inequality that still exists today between Men and Women. I believe that it is something that should be discussed everyday of the year. There is so much inequity in our society and it is not just about gender. I know though how lucky I have it and I am so grateful for all the women who’s path I travel through after. I am so grateful to live in such a beautiful country. I have all that I need and I am always grateful for that. I wake up each morning in awe of the simple fact that I safe, warm and have clean water to drink. I spent the day at home today. I decided to put together a vision board. My friend Nerida shared hers with me and I thought why not put one together. I feel like I have been doing a lot of mindfulness and meditation. Now I want to start visualising the future I want to create. It is much like my present. It is all about creativity, peacefulness, connecting with nature, slowing down, writing, connecting with Hamish, bringing another beautiful soul into the world, play, freedom and above all LOVE. Love in my relationships with others and towards myself.

Speaking of love I went to the hospital on my way home from the city yesterday and met up with my beautiful angel of a social worker Deb. We talked about love, life and loss. About what has been going on for me in the last few months and how I am going now. We also share a vision to help women feel less alone when they are going through loss. I am so in awe of what Deb does everyday. She helps many women each year who go through this unimaginable loss. She rarely has a day off and she makes a commitment to help us through long after our loss. I know that I will continue to help Deb with the work she does. I will make sure I continue to speak up about my experience as many don’t have the support I did. Many don’t have a good experience in the hospital or after when they are at home. I feel so blessed for the love I have around me. I feel so blessed for the love I have from Hamish. He continues to give me the strength to keep going.

Hamish thank you for bringing so much love into my life.
