Wow, what a roller coaster these last two weeks have been, the release of Living like Livvy has sent me through a cascade of emotions. I have laughed a lot and I have cried a great deal. Sharing Livvy with the world has been amazing and blessed my heart more than words could ever describe, its also left me feeling emotionally raw and extremely vulnerable.
Still it’s been worthwhile, we have raised so much awareness and an incredible about of money already and this is just the beginning.
Yet I want to write about something that has really been my inspiration to keep on sharing our story.
I have been receiving emails and Facebook posts from people who have read the book and who have been inspired to Live like Livvy.
Both Andre and I have received photo’s and videos from Rett families and others who have planned events and gone places they never would before. They have been challenged and encouraged by “Living like Livvy” to step outside their comfort zones, their safe zones and to make the moments matter.
This is amazing and more than I could of ever imagined. I often write here about the importance of the magic in the moments. How none of us should ever take this life for granted, but to live fully and love hard. This was the greatest lesson Livvy ever taught me.
Confession time though, I’ve realised that since losing Livvy I haven’t been making the moments matter as much as I should of.
So I’m setting myself a challenge and extending it to you all. Lets make those memories.
Let’s fill social media with memory magic, using the hashtag #LivinglikeLivvy lets get out there and have some fun.
Sharing our fun hopefully will encourage many more to make the moments matter.
Lets do this, lets Live like Livvy.
