In times when all seems stagnant, awry and unwell, remember to give thanks.
Remember: Gratitude changes everything.
It has been over 6+ years since I lost my baby through a fetal miscarriage. At the time, my experience of loss was raw, and I was in deep grief. Life felt like a burden as I dealt with the experience of grief and deep sadness.
I wondered if I would ever stand amid the light again as I laid in bed, wondering what and how I could have changed things.
Inspirational readings and spiritual know-how did very little to move the energy along.
One day, in the silence of meditation, it dropped in like a ton of bricks. Almost as severe as devastating loss, the practice of gratitude entered my consciousness like an Angel, giving hope and new life.
I started to give thanks and with each passing day, I felt slowly excavated from my stagnation and heavy heart.
As my heart opened, new life began - so much so that we conceived another time.
Today, this miraculous conceptions my daughter, who is now 4 years old. One of middle name is Grace. It is through grace and gratitude that my life has been forever altered. For this, I give whole-hearted thanks!
