Opening the Gift

Today would have been the day the little girl I miscarried turned one-year old.

Today is the day that The Naked Mind podcast I recorded about my journey to living alcohol-free is released (Episode 123).

The timing is not lost on me. During my conversation with Annie Grace I realized that one of the biggest gifts to come from my journey through loss and grief is freedom from wanting, needing, and craving alcohol.

For this, I celebrate my little lost one for all that she gave to me and for the gifts that she is still bringing into my life.

The most heart-wrenching experiences can bring you unexpected gifts. May we all be open to receiving them.

When we do, the pain can transform, serve, and bring an empowered meaning to the events that hurt so badly.

I love you, little one.
