6 Months of Grief Project: Day 103

Do You Need Help Up?

This is Day 103 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's image was an accident. I was trying to take a picture of my outfit on my lunch break (you can see my goofy outfit posts on my Instagram feed). I like to lunch next to the water and it's often windy. I find a place to prop up my phone and put it on a self-timer and hope for the best. Today, a gust of wind blew the phone over and as I went to retrieve it, it snapped my photo.

This picture makes me laugh and it feels good to laugh today. This has been such a dark, hard, unbearable week, but here is this surprise image of me, looking down at myself and asking, "Are you okay? Do you need a hand up?" Maybe there is a healed future version of me, reaching back and helping me up. Maybe there is 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 InstagramTwitter, & 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.
