Love Letter: Where will grief show up for you today?

We all know grief strikes and hits us hard when we lose a loved one.

But have you ever paused for a moment to think about the many ways grief shows up in your everyday life?

Have you ever felt grief...

after moving or changing jobs?

before caring for aging parents?

when a friendship changes or ends?

when you've changed so much that a friendship that once made sense doesn't fulfill you the way it once did?

The purpose of this exercise is not to totally depress you and make you want to stay in bed all day. I promise you this.

So often, we experience these common situations and feel something that we can't quite name. Sadness, depression, anxiety.

What would happen if we called it what it really was?


How would that look differently in your everyday life? Would you be kinder to yourself? Would you pause and hold the space necessary to heal that hurt that exists within you?

When we recognize that it is grief we are feeling, we begin to be kinder to ourselves, nicer, and we give ourselves the time and space we need to heal.

So when grief shows up in your day today, what are you going to do? Will you give yourself the space you need to heal? Or will you keep on plowing forward pretending you don't feel it? Where do you think each of those separate roads might lead you?

Well, I have some ideas and tools that can help you along your healing path so you can feel empowered and no longer have to pretend you don't feel it.
