This month is a difficult one for me, as last year I was with my daughter while DIGP was taking her away. I had to watch her body surrender while her mind was fighting till the end. It was probably the worst month of my entire life. So painful. And I have to deal with all these feelings again a year later.
Thing is, even though it’s really painful, these memories are also great teachers. And this loss, the greatest loss of my whole life, as my daughter was everything to me, still hurt me but I also realise it changed me. It made me stronger, wiser, and more grateful for the little things. It made me more aware of what I wanted to do with this life experience. I found a will to go on, to share. It changed me as I now live for the both of us. And I love the idea that she gave me a bit of her way of seeing things, this little spark that adds a lot to my life.
So if it hurts so deeply to have lost her, it also gave me the strength and the will to fully live my life. It changed me.
So here is the challenge:
quote: « There are two types of pains, one that hurts you and the other that changes you.”
Here are the rules of the challenge:
- Each thursday, I’ll give you a quote and a pattern to play with. You can use both, you can use only one of them, it’s up to you.
- You have till the next wednesday to make your card and share it with us in the facebook group (just ask to be added, and I will open the doors wide open to you )
- The goal of this challenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
And my card:
