For a few days widowed people get to set aside their grief work and just relax and soak in the comfort and deep understanding of being with people who get you.
Here’s the thing. Even though you feel like your future is over, it isn’t. If you have a pulse, you have a future. If you have a future, there is a future version of you waiting for you and cheering you on.
I want to encourage you to stay the course; to process the pain, and to fight your way through your grief because your future is waiting for you.
The pain of loss is clean pain. The thoughts we wrap around that pain creates suffering, including denial, regret, worry, anxiety, indignation, anger, and self-pity.
I have come to the end of myself. I have given up dreams of my past and future. In sitting on the ledge, I became aware of the possibility of a new life, a new life in which I served and nourished others.
The sun really does rise and set each day, and with that passage of time our loss becomes more manageable.
While there may be times when we feel more like a junk yard treasure than a masterpiece, we are always a work of art.
While it’s so hard to remember, the storms in your life will pass, and above that angry storm are beautiful blue skies!
There are many things you can do to support your widowed family and friends on Mother’s Day.
The hidden cost of clutter in your life is the message it sends to your psyche.
