6 Months of Grief Project: Day 46

New Growth from Decay

This is Day 46 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

While walking around downtown Petaluma, I passed by the old railroad trestle, full of old, decaying, rotting logs. Because we've have had such a powerful storm come through, everything was soaked and with the sun, little green sprouts were just starting to peek out and grow. I was so moved by these tender little plants, finding a home in such a dark, rotten place. It was a powerful reminder of where I am in my Grief Journey. I still feel like a rotten old train trestle, but there are little moments of growth - a little tender part of me that is reaching up to the light in the hopes of growing stronger. Spring brings life. Spring brings hope.


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.
