Yesterday was supposed to be my MOST productive day EVER!
At least that's what I told myself the night prior. I was going to get up, check facebook (don't judge me), and get ready for my interview later that day.
Well, things DIDN'T go as planned.
I rolled over, opened Facebook...and there it was!
An unexpected memory popped up and looked me right in my sleep deprived face...
I was quickly reminded that yesterday, 5 years ago, I had announced to the world that my then husband and I would be starting completely over in raising a little one. There was "a new girl in town" and she would be The LAST of the bunch...so I thought.
A bulk of emotions took over my thoughts and I went from feeling amazing to somber in the blink of an eye (literally).
I was sad because I did not get a chance to hear my baby girl cry, I didn't see her first steps, I won't see her graduate from college. There are a lot of milestones that are missed because she died unexpectedly in my womb.
Naturally, I threw my phone down, turned back over, and curled up in the fetal position...
This morning, I have a new outlook on life! I am grateful for the memory because I was reminded of the copious amount of women who have shared their story with me about their loss, I was reminded that I started an amazing, colorful business to combat my mental health struggles, and that there is someone out there who is waiting to hear my story so they can get through their nightmare.
