It's a Packers Win!! I typically love lions but not these guys. 🏈🏈 Football season is well underway and just like our favorite NFL teams, we are in charge of building up our own Superbowl-worthy team in our own life! We are the coach and need to fill our “roster” with the appropriate players and in their respective positions in order for our relationships to be successful! Do you have a team of supporters in order to get the big W? #betternotbittertogether #grief #betternotbittermom #lossmamas #bereavedmama #bereaveddad #bereavedbrother #griefjourney #infantlosssupport #infantloss #griefstories #griefsupport #ari413movement #helpforthegrieving #lossjourney #lossmamas #lionspirit #lionheart

Today, he would have been 75. ❤️ . . This was one of our favorite spots in the world—along the Chicago river front. Every time we’d visit, he’d insist we’d take a photo—this very photo. So while this one was taken in 2009, we’ve got numerous others, identical to this one. It’s bittersweet that I get to live here—and yet. . . Grief. (Written for moments like these.) . . There are days. Days where I can swat grief away like a buzzing insect, and allow the world’s saccharine materialism to distract me. With its delights. And decadences. Drugs and deliriums. Where I can block its access from invading my memory and tease a smile into lingering longer on my face. . Then. . There are days. Days when I suffocate under grief’s weight. Its mighty, murderous, manipulative weight. It becomes an intruder beating down a frail door; eventually ripping its way in. Demanding mastery and drowning me in its despicable darkness. Until breath falters. Until tears burn. Until body weakens. And I can no longer stand. . . . #grief #cancersucks #pancreaticcancer #amwriting #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #chicago #chicagowriters

Today is International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. We pray for all mothers, fathers and families who have experienced the grief of losing their children. We remember all babies born sleeping, the ones carried but never met, those held but not taken home, the ones that came home but didn’t stay. Lord, we place these little ones and their families into Your tender love and care. #internationalpregnancyandinfantlossday #lossofachild #pregnancyloss #pregnancylossawareness #stillbirthawareness #infantloss #grief #prayingforyou Image: Little Oak Studios

This is so suiting today, as we celebrated Thanksgiving; a day of thanks and gratitude. What I kept inside was the grief I was feeling. The holidays seem to cause the grief to heighten. The memories of what had been, the thoughts of hope of what would have been; the reality of what is. I have found a lot of wisdom from Megan Devine’s book and recommend anyone grieving or unsure how to help a loved one that is grieving to read it. #grief #holidays @refugeingrief

Hey all, Last year we had so many wonderful friends and family that took part with us. This year and probably every year we will be participating in lighting the candle for not only Waverly and Orion but all the babies and kids that arent here with us. So please, friends and family join us in the wave of light by lighting a candle at 7pm your time and remember all our little ones. 💕💕 #october #awareness #pregnancyandinfantloss #PregnancyInfantandEarlyChildhoodLoss #grief #childloss #waveoflight #lightacandle #rememberthem

Follow the link in my Bio to read the latest post on the blog. • In a few short months it will mark 2years since I lost held Marek and 3 years since I last held Logan. I am raising my rainbow and have found myself in this new season of grief. I feel like my days are better- and that I am finding my rhythm in my “new normal”. Perhaps this resonated with you, because you’re embarking on this new season or have been through this new season. Maybe you’re still in the early stages of your grief. There is no right- there is no wrong. I hope that you can connect with my words and can find hope in this journey. I’m working on my stride and figuring out how to navigate this new side of grief. I hope this month is gentle on your heart, momma. Join me in lighting a candle for the #waveoflight tomorrow!

Day 287/365 - I awoke this morning to the gorgeous full Hunter’s Moon calling to me. My grandmother’s moon, the one she traveled out on nearly a year ago. It’s hard to imagine that this time last year we were with her in the hospital, moving her to hospice, cherishing each moment and wrangling with the reality that these were our final hours and days together on this physical plane. We stayed close and did the very best we could to honor her wishes and to hold space for her journey across the threshold into What’s Next, whenever and however it came to pass. This new impossible milestone makes for a tender time, one requiring a slowing down, a leaning in to be intimate with what arises. It makes my long days at the hospital feel longer than usual, distracted as I am. So I took advantage of the sunshine today and walked during lunch, soaking in the gorgeous colors and lovingkindness of all the friends I met along the way. The flowers and trees, grasshopper, countless squirrels, a black cat, birds aplenty. It was exactly the connection I needed, and exactly the solace I sought during those long uncertain days and nights last year. I am incredibly grateful for the moon’s companioning to start my day. And will look to her presence to end it tonight, as well. As I will on so many more days and nights of loving and missing to come...💖 • • • • #grandmothermoon #huntersmoon #fullmoon #nextplace #transition #death #transformation #threshold #deathanddying #grandmalove #companioning #endoflifedoula #deathdoula #soulmidwife #transitionguide #anamcara #anniversary #grief #griefandloss #fall #colors #lunchttimewalk #naturelovers #magiceverywhere #ournaturethroughnature #wonderofallthings

A man’s age is something impressive, it sums up his life: maturity reached slowly and against many obstacles, illnesses cured, griefs and despairs overcome, and unconscious risks taken; maturity formed through so many desires, hopes, regrets, forgotten things, loves. A man’s age represents a fine cargo of experience and memories. •Antoine de Saint-Exupery• Good morning. Maturity is not when we start speaking big things. It is when we start understanding small things. #age #mature #matured #maturity #wisdom #growth #experience #grief #obstacles #grief #challenges #damage #memories #hapahaber #samuhaber #singer #songwriter #musician #sunriseave #helsinki #suomi #antoinedesaintexupery #quotes #quote #instaquote #instaquotes #soulwords #seeyoursoul ©️📷 @hapahaber @annaplay Photographer #photographer #greatwork #blackandwhitephotography

3 years ago tomorrow my dad passed away. Grief is long journey in which we learn more about ourselves than we thought possible. My dad spent his life lifting others up, including me. He gave me so much but mostly he taught me that no matter what life throws at you there is always something to be grateful for. I was blessed to be his daughter. As I walked through the woods today I could feel him with me and that filled my heart with joy.

@pagesandcc

Turtles All the Way Down was a pretty heavy read for me particularly because of the mention and exploration of family deaths. It's such a sore topic for me that sometimes, in books, I even try to avoid it by skipping pages, not thinking about them too much, or just denying its existence on page. But it would always leave a hole. Because it would never be a small thing. It's not some random plot device you can casually drop expecting the world would not revolve around it. I was talking to my therapist before and he said that grief from death, specifically grief from a death in your immediate family, is a different kind of trauma - a different kind of monster. And I agree. . This excerpt takes the cake for me. I stopped reading, bookmarked it and closed the book. I closed my eyes and filed it at the very back of my mind. Then I continued to soldier on. . . . #TurtlesAllTheWayDown #JohnGreen #Death #Grief #Bookstagram #BookstagramPH

@thethingaboutgrief

This past Saturday was the 12th. And not just any 12th. It’s the halfway mark. Halfway to that dreaded day. Halfway through a new type of calendar year. • The second half always seems to go so much faster, which is why I’ve been dreading October 12th. Between the holidays and the minefield of anniversaries, birthdays, and other milestone days in the new year, before I know it, that horrid, wretched day is upon us. And I just can’t. Not again. Time cruelly stretches the present farther and farther from a life that I once shared with my mom, a life that I lived with her and not just for her. •
I wrote to my mom yesterday, and I asked her where she is? What is she doing? What would she think about my life right now? What would she say? It is agonizing to think in hypotheticals and to have to constantly urge my imagination to conjure up the images of scenarios and situations I will never get to experience with my mom. That's when I feel the farthest from her - the moments when I'm trying to feel closest to her. • I wish I could talk to her. I wish I could hug and kiss her. I wish I could show her the new shoes I bought yesterday. I wish I could tell her about the new video I'm making at work or the article I did on mental health. I wish I could tell her about what I cooked. •
I wish for so many things.
And that is Life now - a series of wishes that will always remain just that - and they will slowly disappear into an ether of unfulfilled, unrequited wishes. •
I miss you so much, Mommy. • #grief #motherlessdaughter

Sad news! Last evening, Azur stayed fluffed out, had trouble balancing, and wanted to stay on the bottom of the cage. I was worried about his green beak, wondering if it was s sign of internal infection. When his feet were very cold, I wrapped him in flannel and we held him in our hands until he felt warm again. To sleep, we put an electric heating pad under the cage and covered the cage in warm fleece. At 2 in the morning, he passed quickly. Not knowing his history, it is impossible to know how long he was sick and what the illness was. At least I know his last day and night were spent with people who cared and gave him all the pampering they could. #rescuedbird #loss #sad #grief #sickbird #sorry #budgie #budgiesofinstagram #americanparakeet #parakeetsofinstagram #parakeetsofig #lovebirds #birdsofinsta #birdbehavior #birdsofinstagram #bluebird #prettybluebird #compassion

I heard it’s #lossawareness month. Here’s my contribution. https://onlyascribe.wordpress.com/2019/10/15/you-may-not-know-a-poem/ We’re currently reeling from our third miscarriage in ten months. In the time it takes many people to conceive and birth a child, I’ve had three, with none of them here to hold now. I don’t know what to make of this devastation. This poem reflects some of what it’s like to be in this heavy place. #grief #motherhood #loss #miscarriage

Today you were supposed to be turning 2 years old. We were supposed to be preparing and bracing ourselves for those terrible twos to start. Instead we are singing Happy Birthday to you up in Heaven. What I would give to be dealing with those terrible twos. I know you are with us and that you are watching over your big and little sisters. I miss your sweet face and perfect hands. I know that through the birth of Delilah I will be getting a piece of you back... I cannot wait! Happy Due Date Birthday, Penny! Mommy, Daddy, Hazel and Delilah love you so very much.

@lewilson4

I wish more people talked about pain. . Of course, it’s fun and interesting to go new places and meet new people and share happy memories. None of that stuff is bad stuff. . But if we don’t talk about pain too, what good is social media? It becomes a way to craft a self that is unattainable, a self that is always productive and always happy, and when we can’t live up to that self, we feel shame. We feel like our human selves are inadequate, when really the opposite is true, our crafted social media selves are inadequate. They can’t capture the whole picture of who we are without some mention of pain. . I wish I wasn’t one of few people who use social media to talk about pain and grief. I always feel so alone because I see all these posts that barely scratch the surface of what it means to be human and I just wonder, what could the world be like if everyone did social media in their own way as opposed to what they felt like was the “right” way? . Pain. Grief. Vulnerability. Courage. Bravery. These are the windows into our souls, when we share these things we are saying to each other, “I am here. Come take a look and you will see, all of my scars. I don’t know everything but I can tell you the only story I know like the back of my hand, the true story of my life.” #pain #grief #vulnerability #transmenwithfeelings #emotionalrisks #shame #bravery

Sometimes when I start typing the “@“ and then the letter “s” my phone assumes it’s my stepmom @susantwite that I’m trying to tag. Even though she died 3 years ago. Every time I try to type soona, I see her name and I’m reminded of her digital headstone. Most days I deal with this like any thoroughly therapized 30-something ... I just move past it like a weird prick on my skin that leaves a mark and itches and swells but it’s not stopping my breathing or giving me hives so I have to move on. Today before I gave a speech at @tcstartupweek - I went to post and her name stopped me in my tracks. I felt sad. I felt stupid. I felt so fucking angry at @tmobile because her phone is still in my office unable to be accessed because none of us have her face so I can’t delete her Instagram. I was/am low. And yet I had to give a speech. On storytelling with humanity. Cute timing, universe. Fall was her favorite. She loved fall leaves and all the seasonal coffee concoctions. She would always default to orange if given a color choice. And I think she married my dad in the fall just so she could make me wear a gold dress. I am rambling on the other side of pain. But it’s a place that I need to sit for a moment and appreciate, because missing her should never be an inconvenience that Instagram thrust upon me. It’s the gift of her wisdom and her passion and her love that sits with me in my heart and makes me feel like a human being in the first place. ... ... ... .. .. . . . #happiness #favorites #hotel #designlife #work #selfie #nude #apple #ladypreneur #womeninbusiness #advice #life #courage #loved #leadership #loss #powercouple #business #entrepreneurship #relax #selfcare #selfhelp #interiors #white #blue #create #art #design #grief #writer

Today is pregnancy & infant loss remembrance day 💜 . I remember my first miscarriage. I was confused, not sure if I should tell anybody because I was not sure what I had lost, but still felt like something was missing. my first pregnancy was not turning out how I expected. It wasn't until years later, after more miscarriages and the birth of my two beautiful children, that I understood this as grief. Every loss wether it be miscarriage, stillbirth and beyond is an unimaginable pain that no parent should have to go through. Thinking of anybody that may be hurting from a loss 💜💜 . . . #pregnancyloss #infantloss #miscarriage #remembrance #remember #parenting #parenthood #motherhood #mother #awareness #grief #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #laurenmareephotography

#Repost @ashley_hewett_2010 with @get_repost ・・・ Here’s my post for the #PAILMonthChallenge to raise awareness for #babyloss 12.)Sonogram Story: My first miscarriage was found during the 10 week ultrasound. They said that the baby just stopped growing, but my body still acted pregnant. David’s ultrasound that identified his CHD was unforgettable. They took so long to scan his heart. We could see it beating and it looked fine to us. We never expected to get the news that he had a rare heart defect with a slight chance of surviving surgery. My third loss never made it to the 10 week ultrasound. Aside from the high-risk pregnancy, I did love seeing David on the screen more often. It made that terrifying experience a little more enjoyable, if that is even possible. 13.) Anxiety/PPD/PTSD: I didn’t know these things were real. I had heard of them before, but I thought these terms described mentally insane people. I had no idea that it happens to anyone. My doctor told me after I had visited the hospital 3 times in the same week that I had these conditions. She said it was from the amount of stress and trauma my body went through watching my son fight for his life, losing his life, and then grieving. She also said this is common after having a baby because hormones are very imbalanced. It was so much more magnified with grieving my child. 14.) Triggers: I realized I was dealing with PTSD triggers whenever we were living in the hospital. Every doctor had the default ringtone. If we were out to dinner and heard that ring tone, we both would stop breathing for a second and break into a sweat, thinking it was a phone call in the hospital and associating it with bad news. Phone calls are stressful to us because one night after we transferred to Shands, we got a call in the middle of the night telling us that David’s heart rate dropped and they had to start performing CPR on his tiny body! I remember waiting to hear the doctor finish, thinking he was about to say he didn’t make it, but he said David starting swinging his fists and fighting them off before the doctors made it to his room. Other triggers or things I avoid: certain songs, Wendy’s, Subway, & “never grow up.”

#Repost @thelegacyofleo with @get_repost ・・・ Tomorrow night, at 7pm around the world, people will light a candle in memory of babies who have died of any gestation or age for any reason - literally creating a #waveoflight. People may share those photos simply with the hashtag and no explanations, others will share their babies for the only time that year, the first time ever or for the millionth time. Some may ask you to join them - to light a candle in honour of their baby. They’ll likely ask in a somewhat passive way, gently suggesting that if you happen to be anywhere near a candle and a match at 7pm could you please possibly light it? And if you have your phone to hand, maybe it would be nice if you could take a photo, pop it on Facebook and tag them? They are asking gently, but in all honestly - they are bloody desperate and secretly wanting to know just how much their baby means to the world, and quietly hoping that those people who seem to have disappeared might just text them at 7:05pm with a picture (or even a video!) of a flickering candle with the words “thinking of your boy tonight, he is so loved, hope this years wave of light gives you peace”. They are asking gently because they are fearful no one will bother. They are just quietly, passively, secretly desperate for the world to see their child, everyday, but if not everyday, maybe, just maybe on the 15th October - on #WaveOfLight day, on Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, marking the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week 2019. So if you see a plea on your feed - just light a candle & share a photo. See their child. #babyloss #blaw2019 #babylossawareness #unitedinloss #bereavedparents #thelegacyofleo #stillbirth #miscarriage #infantloss #grief

I revisit the grief writing course I found four years ago whenever I need to peel another layer away. Which is quite often. And I recommend Refuge in Grief to everyone. One of the prompts that always lays me out goes something like this: I’m not the person I used to be…. I’ve written on this prompt eight times. Easily. I’m not who I used to be. I don’t recognize myself. Whoever I was, whoever I should have become, should be now, is forever lost. And in its place is this. This thing. I can’t even call it Me. How can it be Me? Me is forever lost. Me left with Derek. What remains is nothing. Or next to nothing. When Me left, I have no idea what took its place. Whatever it is that now fills my body has no name. I don’t even know if I ever was his mother. She’s gone. That’s the saddest thing I think I’ve ever written. I love you, Derek Please come home #grief #bereavedmother #dereksheely

Grief travels with such ferocity. It's interesting how it ages, transcends, and expresses metamorphosis. How I feel grief now, compared to how I felt it when I was a child, to how I'll feel in 20 years; it's all vastly different. I carry a hole around that I fear I can't fill. 20 years today that my family and I began to ache. 20 years ago that grief began to ripple and rack our lives. My father, my friend. #grief #loss #griefandloss #transcending #metamorphosis #time #20years #fatherdaughter #missyou #latenightthoughts #pictures #oldphotos #weddingphoto

Some women seem able to do it all. They have successful careers, stay in great shape, & seem to juggle home life well. I applaud these women, but I need to be truthful—I’m not one of them. 📚 Some of us have less energy than others & you may be able to relate if that’s you. Since I have chronic migraines & am working through grief, I have to count the cost of things before I commit to them. Last week, the kids were home for fall break. 🍁 I wanted to have a memorable Book Week to celebrate what we love 🥰📚 (click my highlight Book Week in my bio). But wow, I have had little-to-nothing-left since. 📚 I didn’t reach my word count goal. I wasn’t able to finish writing a new blog today... the “I couldn’t this/that” can take over our minds & hearts because all we see are our limitations... but what if our limitations can be a source of strength? I know that’s weird, so stick with me a minute. I can’t do it all, but I now have children who help around the house. I have friends & family who support during rough days. What if that mythical woman who has it all isn’t so different from me or you after all? Maybe she just has the support she needs because she has learned that asking for help makes her stronger....and leaves her more time for amazing things like...reading? Just a thought. 🤭📚😃 #momlife #writer #momwriting #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #depression #grief #griefandloss #griefjourney #books #bookstagram #bookjourney #booktastic #bookalicious #raisingkids #coffee #coffeetime #coffeeaddict #migaines #migrainelife #author #indieauthor #authorlife #indieauthorsareworthit

What do pain, heartbreak and life transitions have in common? • • They can be a gift. They can be an invitation to recognize and heal parts of your soul that need to be held. These are the moments when we ask the questions that can bring awareness: “what led to this?” “In what ways is this a repeat of past events?” “What areas do I need to shine a spotlight on for further healing?” • • Then we can look forward and ask the questions that terrify and inspire at the same time: “what do I ultimately want?” “What parts of myself have to change in order to get that?” “Do I believe I’m worth receiving what I want?” “What are the thoughts/behaviors that trip me up?” • • I seem to have a special place in my heart for the times of transition and pain. Hell, it might have something to do with my own, near expert level, experience with it. • • I’m not going to wallow. I’m not going to believe it’s too much. I’m going to heed the invitation to dig in, dig deep and show my resilience. I’m gonna show my determination to not give up on what I know is possible. And don’t you dare give up on yourself, either. Accept the invitation that the transition offers. • • If this resonates and you need a guide to help you through, message me and let’s get started. • • #innerwork #coaching #selfawareness #growth #goals #passion #lifecoach #fear #peace #dream #power #selfworth #selfcare #emotions #trusttheprocess #grief #motivation #balance #create #trust #adventure #undoing #unraveled #safety #security #fight #lifesucks #truth #startliving #asif

I can’t sleep so... here’s some 3am writing 🤷🏾‍♀️ • Mum we shared a dark, dry sense of humour that most people don’t find funny at all. But that was ok - we made each other laugh ❤️ . Thankfully, I’ve found some more people for us to laugh with ☺️ • Miss you X • #sleeplessnights #cantsleep #laugh #grief #grieving #loss #anxiety #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #grievingdaughter #grievingquotes #heartache #quotes #motherlessdaughters #motherlessdaughter #cancersucks #griefpoetry #griefandloss #griefquotes #poetry #igpoetry #poem #bereavement #thoughts #writing #love #cancer #imissmymom #imissmymommy

It’s a curious thing to be human. We are so complex and yet astoundingly simple. Often beneath the aches + the various ways our emotions present themselves is the simple desire to be heard + validated. 🌿 I find it beautiful that our physiology, our spirituality + emotional health all point to this idea: we require connection + compassion before anything else can change. 🌿 I wrote about this in one of the most #enneagram4 pieces I’ve done in awhile (which is saying something 🙃)/ link in profile. 🌿 May we make space for all that we do not yet understand. We are loved. #trysofter #loveyourneighborasyourself

I was playing tonight. I’m hosting a collaboration here on Instagram with some bakers and cakers in honor of the #waveoflight2019 tomorrow and I’m going to a public #waveoflight event for the first time. I don’t know how other people grieve their losses and it isn’t for me to decide. I only know how I work through mine. I know many who are with us for the first time this year. For them, I hold a place next to me. 🖤

This was a mandatory picture from our scavenger hunts at our @sos_special_ops_survivors conference this weekend. We had a great time and was able to bond with a few ladies whom I had not met. Each of us share a bond that no one can take away and no one would ever want to be a part of. As a #militarywidow I’m thankful for each one of my #widsters. They’ve helped me through this process called grief. What this picture doesn’t show is the powerful survival story behind each one us. #specialopssurvivors #armywidow #goldstarwife #bondthatcouldneverbebroken #support #wellness #grief #mentalhealth #honoringthembyliving #thisisjustasmallgroupofmany

Self-awareness consists of digging deep into yourself and discovering why you feel the way you feel and do the things that you do. Finding out what makes you tick can help you make positive changes in your life.⁠ ⁠ All of us want to be successful in life. But only a few get to live their dreams. Why? It’s because most people are not self-aware. Although a lot has been written about self-awareness, its importance is still commonly overlooked. When you know yourself you enter a world filled with endless opportunities.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ read more here: ⁠ https://christinecowin.com/self-awareness-empowering-a-better-you/⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #selflove #meditation #healing #newcastlensw #selfworth #selfhealing #selfdiscovery #soulcoach #lifecoaching #spiritualguidance #initution #abuse #trauma #complextrauma #manifestation #mindset #childhoodtrauma #mentalhealth #grief #healing #spiritualbusiness #lifecoach #limitingbeliefs #knowledgeofself #healingjourney #values #dysfunctionalfamily #emotionalabuse #deepconditioning #corevalues

Today I have been a ball of emotions. It's so hard to believe that it has been a year since God took you unexpectedly. Some days are better then others but there isn't a day where my heart doesn't ache for you!

Today is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. My heart & thoughts are with all those families who grieve their loss but continue to live on with only just the memories of what if? 1 in 4 will experience this loss. I am 1 in 4, we miscarried at 11 weeks, it gave us a whole new appreciation of life, our lives, our son's life & the making of new life. Everyday through this current pregnancy I brace my belly, close my eyes & say I love you... I'm nervous everyday even though I can feel the kicks, because I know how precious life is. Be kind, because you never know what anyone is going through. Love unconditionally. . . . #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonth #pregnancyandinfantlossremembranceday #pregnancyloss #infantloss #stillborn #october15ispregnacyandinfantlossawarnessday #1in4 #im1in4 #miscarriagesupport #sidsawareness #stillbornstillloved #grief #bereavedmother #strong #family #love #bekind #kindness #loveunconditionally

A year ago, I began publicly sharing my journey through #mentalhealth—the good, the bad and the oh so very ugly. Today, on world mental health day, I share with you this photo that marks the eleventh and final month of me feeling guilty, insecure and horribly ashamed about that post. Last year, I received comments that my post was attention-seeking and that it was disrespectful to the individuals who were behind the scenes showing support/minimized their love. Never did I intend those things and I’m sorry for the hurt those people felt by my post but it’s my mental health journey and my choice to make my experience heard. I’m proud of the work I constantly do to understand others, to allow others to feel less alone and to share what has (and hasn’t!) worked for me. As today ends, remember that you are not alone. It is so very easy to feel that way, I feel it more often than not but I repeat those words reminding myself that though I cannot promise that things will ever be okay, I’ll never stop trying to make the darkness a little less dark. One thing that I have found has helped me is laughing at myself. I record myself singing, thinking that I sound in tune, play it back and realize whoooooa no (practice does not make it better). Anyway, find that one thing and lean into it when things get really bad. I am here for you, whoever you are and wherever you are 🖤🖤🖤 #mentalhealthawareness
