The Gifts of Grief
The gifts of grief. They are there if we allow ourselves to surrender to the pain.
The countdown is on.
In a week I hand over the keys of our home to the new owners.
The last few months have been a mix of emotions. Moving is stressful, saying goodbye tugs at one's heart, parenting a child amongst all the change can be taxing, letting go of the life I had and creating a new one without Brian can be daunting; not one I planned.
Every step, every decision, every box packed, every wave of grief has been a catalyst for me to peel back the layers and reconnect with my essence.
Grief: the opportunity to connect with the depth of our core; if we have the courage if we surrender to what is.
Soon I will be settling into a new lifestyle in another city, with my son and my immediate family. Each day I am clearer and clearer of what is most important to me and how I want to live my life. Grief has given me this gift.
There is a rebirthing, a renewing that I am embracing.
The pain of loss has set forth a new perspective; a perspective that holds a richness and a meaningful life experience.
I am grateful I have had the courage to surrender to the pain of loss, now I pray I have the courage to have my life be a reflection of the gifts that can only be birthed by grief.
