6 Months of Grief Project: Day 124

Loaded Up (Weightlifting Shows Not Pictured)
This is Day 124 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

This is what I look like every Monday, Wednesday & Friday morning at 6:15am. I start my day weightlifting, so I have to bring my work clothes to the gym, plus my lunch for the day. There's also my weightlifting shoes, which are added to this pile. I start these mornings weighed down, only to go lift even more weight over my head. I carry all this baggage, because it's the only way my new life will work. I carry my baggage out in the open, where anyone can see it. I do not hide.

I am tired all the time. Lots of things that were so easy to do, no longer get done at all. I don't like this life, but it is all I have. I get up every morning and try again. I try to be happier, to lift more, to be strong and powerful. Mostly I feel like a failure who is barely surviving, dragging my baggage wherever I go.


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.
