And as for me I'm getting in-home counseling once per week in hopes of learning to accept her absence, painting when the energy allows me & just recently gifted 3 more Bracelets to deserving moms. To date I have created & gifted 10 bracelets total!!! It's so rewarding for me, for some reason this project feels so much more meaningful to have started it after her transition. I guess her transition has fueled or motivated my purpose in life to inspire others as best I can, to show people that I hear you & that I care. It's about standing in solidarity with someone, kindness & genuine concern for those who are hurting in some way....I just read someplace, a quote from Civil Rights Activist Rosa Parks "Each person must live their life as a model for others" This is something I've always aspired to do. For as long as I can remember I've been eager to help others in some way & when I can't, my heart aches. To invoke change when I can, to inspire others to be a better person. It's difficult in my own darkness but I take each day as I can in stride & try to accept what I cannot change.
Before I forget I wanted to share something I had....Kinda an epiphany that came over me this past week....Solidarity. Standing in solidarity is such a humbling & selfless act. Attempting to own a portion of the burdens of those we love mirrors sympathy, compassion & patience..... This is the premise of my Bracelet project, I hope it blazes a trail to inspire others to acknowledge the struggles of those we love & strangers alike...Also posted below is the link for the bracelet project..... Be back soon..;)
By the way...;)
