How’s it going, etc.?

Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing well! I can’t believe we’re already in October! I don’t know where the time goes! I haven’t felt that inspired to write lately but…I wanted to give you an update on things. Life has sort of gotten hectic these days because I’m currently working two jobs and freelancing. I haven’t been freelancing as much as before. Since things are so hectic, I plan to blog around once a week for now. I’m not sure if I’m going to participate in National Novel Writing Month in November. I attempted it last year but I wasn’t that successful at it. For those who aren’t familiar with it, you attempt to write 50,000 words in November. I started writing my novel last year. My goal is to finish it by the time I turn 40. I have about three years to go! Are you going to attempt it? Switching to a more serious topic…

October is known as National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. It’s a month to honor a baby or babies one’s lost through a miscarriage or stillbirth. I wrote about my experience back in June/July. If you missed it, you can read it here. These are subjects that aren’t talked about enough in society but it happens more often than we think. Even if I don’t talk about it that much, I think about my experience once in awhile when I’m alone. It hasn’t been as often as when it happened but the hurt and pain creeps up sometimes. I never knew October was known as a month to grieve these types of losses. I learned about it from friends who’ve also gone through it. They’ve talked about their experiences on social media. To be honest, I’m not that brave to share it on Facebook right now. I feel more comfortable writing about things here. One in four couples goes through this experience in their lifetime. What’s going on in your world? Take care everyone!

  1. I read that 1 in 3 pregnancies end in miscarriage- I had one years ago- the grief was overwhelming at the time- I was too old to try again- now I’m at peace with it, but it was a hard journey for a year or two. Peace to you, G

  2. Yes. Women’s pain makes too many people uncomfortable. I think we all need to start talking about it. The loss of a fetus or child, is a loss of love that couldn’t prosper, and the grief is overwhelming, and so very important. It speaks of women, and how much some love their children, which I think is the most precious thing in our universe.
