6 Months of Grief Project: Day 24

Striped Legs for Leap Day

This is Day 24 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

Today is Leap Day and that's always been a really special day for me. It's like we get one magic day that doesn't exist in any other year that is not divisible by four. It's a day where time is fluid. It's a day that hides in the ethers, showing up to give one extra day to exist. I feel like today, my grief can rest in a more relaxed and playful space, because today doesn't really exist. It doesn't get counted in our years of life. It is literally an EXTRA day. Today I bought new striped tights. Today I'm taking a road trip up north to soak in hot water. Today my grief is quieter and softer and even a bit sillier. Is that okay? Do I get to take a respite from my grief?

I am very aware that this project can bring up a lot around yours or other's grief and loss, I will always follow every post with some online grief support resources that have helped me. Please feel free to let me know of online support that you have found healing in your grief, as well:

Living with Grief Resources:

And remember, I am sharing this project on a variety of platforms, including my Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook feeds, as well as my Pinterest page on Grief. I use the hashtag #6MonthsOfGrief, so it can easily be found on any platform. Please share this project with anyone you think might need it.

Thank you, and see you tomorrow.
