6 Months of Grief Project: Day 109

Mermaid Rings

This is Day 109 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

My hair is the longest it's been in a long time. It's so long that you can see the strata of my life. Like the rings of a tree, my hair tells a story. At the end are the bleached out leftovers of a happy life, where I had pink, purple and green hair and a husband who was alive. Moving further up, things get dark when my husband died and I stopped playing around with fun things like hair dye. Now at my temples and hair line are new slivery grey hairs, showing my grief and aging from losing my husband so suddenly.

My hair is showing my transition of life.


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.
