How can I be in harmony with my discomfort?
When life is challenging..... When you feel defeated..... When you think you cannot do "it" anymore....... A first step towards self empowerment can come from discovering how you can be in harmony with your discomfort. I had this realization last Sunday. Sundays are very hard for me. Last Sunday was particularly hard. Everything I did reminded me of the life I shared with Brian. Sunday's have always been family day, I loved Sunday's.
I loved everything that Sunday's represented for our family. We started most Sunday's snuggling, play fighting with Kenny and being grateful for our little family unit. It has been just over three months since Brian's passing and I was overwhelmed with the realization that my grief and the "administrative to do list" was just as intense as it was within the first few weeks of Brian's passing. In the middle of the day I had this thought: "Teresia this is your experience right now and it is not going to change anytime soon."
As hard as that reality was, In that moment I felt a shift. A shift of letting go. Letting go of any "suffering" that I may have been experiencing. I still feel the intensity of the grief and overwhelm but I know that internal suffering is optional. Holding the intention each day of being in harmony with my experience is making a difference. I pulled out the plaque below and put it front and center in my office. It was given to me years ago by my dear friend Leanne Brown. (She gave it to me during a time when Brian and I were just keeping our heads above water.
Kenny suffered from virus induced asthma and we were going back and forth to emergency almost every 2nd month, until we finally figured out the right the protocol). Leanne's friendship and this concept made a difference then and it makes a difference today. Join me and become curious about what has to happen to be in harmony with your discomfort?
