Instagram photo by blogalacart - Prolonged nurse sessions have become one of my greatest forms of self-care. No agenda. No rush. Just quiet space with my baby where I can tune out the noise of the world through his sweet baby breaths.  Last night I had an ugly grief moment. The kind of screaming pain that ripped me wide open. The sorrow and longing came flooding out of my body in huge, loud, gulping sobs and moans. It's such a visceral expression of confronting loss.  To finally stop the aching, I held him close and we matched our breathing. Our heartbeats. And my body quieted and the pain receded.  People tell you that grief comes in waves.

katherineloiry - katherineloiry Ashley, I appreciate you being vulnerable and sharing your emotions. It has helped me in ways I didn't know I needed help. I hope it has been healing for you, and I always take comfort in Imogen Heap's lyrics - "there's beauty in the breakdown." Sending you love from Texas ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’•

ms_misanthropy - Ms Misanthropy Ashley, what you say is so very true. I lost my father at 14...21 years ago on April 27th.

I've said this countless times, but you handle like with such grace and you really do inspire so many. ๐Ÿ’™
