No matter what kind of loss, I am sure I can speak for most, it forces one to reflect and reevaluate life. 

Loss changed everything for me. Everything as I knew it has changed. It is scary. I did not choose it but I am embarking on a new chapter in my life and doing my best to consciously create the best life for Kenny and I.

The Gifts of Grief

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.  

My move is a family effort. 

My move is a family effort.
