In order to read my story and see how I decided not to let this loss define how I lived my life. ย This may be especially helpful to those dealing with a miscarriage right now in their lives, or for anyone who ever has felt the pain of losing a child. ย I urge you to read this short work to find some semblance of solace. Know that your rainbow exists, it’s just a little further down your life’s path than you expected.

Wishing you happiness!

The ability to allow ourselves to express feelings through creative means is what helps us to grow as individuals.  Having a creative outlet is not only fun, but healthy! Through creative activities we are able to release pent up emotions that threaten to upset the balance of our universe.  Whether your creative outlet is writing out your thoughts, painting an amazing piece of art to release the emotions inside through each stroke of the brush, putting on music you love and just letting your body get lost in the rhythm through dance, or going for a run to let the fresh air clear your mind rejuvenating you to once again tackle life’s tasks, we all need a release of some sort.

I personally have several ways to release stress through creativity.  My number one creative outlet would be my writing.  Since fourth grade I have kept a journal of my thoughts.  It helps me to transfer those emotions that threaten to fester inside onto paper.  Over the years this technique passed from writing in journals to writing poetry and stories.  As I write I can physically feel the stress caused by these various emotions literally leave my body and be transferred to the page, leaving me in a state of bliss.  The best part of writing put your feelings is that what you put down on paper doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, its just thoughts that have to be extricated from inside to allow one to feel human again! But writing your feelings doesn’t have to be due to negative feelings.  Sometimes you feel so happy about something that you want to tell the world, but no one is around at the time. Share these musings of merriment with your journal or in a poem of thanksgiving.  Writing has always been my go to creative device, to be able to feel human again!! Writing doesn’t judge you for your thoughts and emotions you are experiencing.  Writing simply soaks them up like a sponge depositing them upon the page through your pencil which acts as the device to ciphen out excessive thoughts residing in your mind. Writing is my go to outlet at all times allowing me to make it through another day.

My other form of creative release is through dancing.  Something about music containing a great beat just makes me feel free, forgetting all my worries.  I started dance lessons in fourth grade, actually I really went for the first time when I was two years old but didn’t enjoy being separated from my mom! I returned to dancing when I was ten and haven’t stopped dancing since! Music just releases euphoric endorphins making me feel good.  The blood pumping through your body and the workout one gets through really dancing hard, gives you a great workout and makes you feel positive about life again.  I recently was entered in a dance competition while on a cruise thia past Dec and placed second.  Having to create on the spot routines with a partner who you’ve never danced with was tricky but the experience made me feel so alive!  Music has the magical ability to transport us back to certain moments in our lives.  Dancing will always be a big part of my life, and provides yet another means for me to creatively release pent up feelings!

Sunlight’s Lullaby

Her bent silhoutte forms shadows, tears stream from sapphire eyes.
Heavy heart seeped in grief,
laden with burdens of life, invisible to human eyes.
Golden rays twinkle, specks of fairy dust fill the air,  
a blanket woven of sunlight, encircles her frame.
Comforting touch, protecting one in need during moments of weakness,
driving away emotional vultures perched hungrily, waiting to swoop down.
They will have to quench their hunger elsewhere,
sun’s radiance has forced them into hiding.
Emulating a comforting mother’s hand,
brilliant trajectories bathe the wounded soul in brightness.
Seeking to assuage reason for this melancholy,
cradling its earth child in powerful arms of magnitude, rocking her slowly, into peaceful sleep.
As quiet sighs of contentment escape her lips,
Rays recede into the horizon, watchful for signs that they are needed below.

A friend of mine Angel Chen owns a company in China called Teavivre  Out of the goodness of her heart she shipped me several loose teas and as a gesture of goodwill I wanted to share with you all a review of her company’s teas!  These teas come from various areas in China, consist of hand rolled tea leaves and tea pearls, which open up when brewed releasing floral and fruity scents throughout your home!

Tea can be very beneficial for its many healthy properties it extols such as added antioxidants found in green tea or chamomile’s ability to produce a calming effect on one’s body, reducing tension and stress.  So here are a sampling of  loose teas found at Teavivre which offers a monthly tea sampling to consumers allowing you to test drive their teas at a reduced rate.

Jasmine “Dragon Pearls” Green Tea
I love green tea and this specific tea is infused with the heady scent of jasmine.  The reason it is called “Dragon Pearls”  is because the loose tea leaves have been rolled into tight balls resembling pearls.  You only need to brew a few of these pearls at a time for your daily cup of tea because they open up to emit the intense tea flavor and scent of jasmine when brewed.  The flavor of this tea is sweet, strong, and delicious! The scent of jasmine inhaled with each sip really made this tea stand out for me! Easily my favorite!

Chamomile Rose Silver Needle White Tea
Coming in as a close second in favorite teas from Teavivre is the chamomile Rose Silver Needle White Tea. This tea sample contained silver needle buds, chamomile leaves, and rose leaves.  While brewing this tea, I was enticed by the heady scent of roses that was released.  I found this chamomile tea to be relaxing, relieving the stress of the day.  The fact that this is a white tea also offers added health benefits to the tea drinker.

Organic Silver Needle White Tea
For those fond of organic beverages, this tea is made of pure tea leaves.  From the first sip, I immediately felt a warm sense of calm overtake my whole body! This tea isn’t bitter or strong like some of the others, rather it is more mellow in both taste and flavor.  It was very enjoyable and since it is a white tea, one gains the health benefits associated with white tea while enjoying it!

Bi Luo Chan Green Tea
A green tea that is created using tea buds (tightly wrapped tea leaves), and new leaves.  The aroma of fruit especially one of orange or citrus is apparent in this tea.  When brewed, the tea color becomes bright green in color!  I found this green tea from Teavivre to be mellow in substance.  The additional benefit this tea provides is needed antioxidants to your body.

Organic Superfine Dragon Well Long Jing Green Tea
This green tea is made from teabuds rolled tightly to keep in the tea’s flavor until brewed, and new leaves.  The tea itself has a light nutty flavor to it, yet it is very sweet and enjoyable.  It reminded me of a really earthly type of tea in aroma and flavor.

Anxi Superfine Tie Guan Yin “Iron Goddess” Oolong Tea
The name sames it all in describing this tea made of pure tea leaves.  It’s a strong tasting tea with a sweet flavor that lingers with you well beyond your first sip.  When brewing this tea, you will notice a floral scent emitted.  If you enjoy a strong pure tea this oolong tea is for you!

So if you are a tea lover like myself, be sure to visit the site www.teavivre.com and check out all the other various teas offered there.  Be sure to talk with Angel Chen, a professional tea ceremony individual, about the benefits of the teas on the site, and sign up to try a few that interest you!
