Day 218

I did it. My first Facebook live video in quite some time. It was in my friend Jolinda’s facebook group ‘Fertile as I Wanna Be’. This group is for women who want to put their fertility as a focus. It is such an empowering group of women all in different stages of their journey to conceive. Jolinda is a fertility coach and it is her absolute passion to help empower women around their health and fertility. I spoke about how meditation can help you in your daily life and fertility. I know for myself in the last seven months one thing that has really helped me not only on my fertility journey but also with my grief is meditation. Coming back to the present moment and being here in the now has been a good way for me to have a daily check in. It has allowed me to listen in to my intuition more. To reduce overwhelm. Feel into my emotions each day. It has allowed me to calm my nervous system when I have needed to. I don’t believe mediation is about removing your thoughts. It is more about slowing them down a little. I have been using meditation on and off for years. This past seven months though without Hamish it has been a tool to help me on this journey. I think I will use it now forever in my life. I believe if you can take time out in your day to breathe and be mindful you can live a much more peaceful life. You can end up making decisions that don’t truly align with your soul and heart when your head is running the show and meditation can be a tool to help avoid this. I am going to start running a local beginners meditation class here in Sydney starting in a few weeks. I believe no matter where you are in your life you can benefit from meditation.

Hamish I am thinking of you today, I saw your Grandma earlier and she has a beautiful photo of you on the background of her phone. It made me realise how much you are loved. We won’t forget you my love.
