Sometimes the past is the only future we ran away from . I chanced upon this photo yesterday and it brought back memories.
I’m a firm believer in HIStory because that’s the only way the future can be understood. This picture was taken on the 5th day after my stillbirth. I didn’t want to stay indoors and cry and ask questions I wouldn’t get instant answers to. My cousin actually said to me “Cry, it’s OK. That’s a way to let it out ” but I didn’t . (I cried later though). This has gone a long way to confirm that I was determined to live, to believe and hope for a better day… which came.
I just want to share this with you since I shared the whole pregnancy story , birth, naming etc with you. Including all the heartfelt messages I have received from brave women who need comfort at such times.
So you nursing a broken heart, it’s OK for your heart to be broken but do not let it define you. It’s OK to cry, but dust yourself off after crying and ‘March on’ like a soldier cause the future is bright .
May the Heavens cause us to laugh about all the trials in the past. May this 2017 be super awesome to us.
