I am writing to remind you of things you already know. You can’t manage grief. You can only ride the wave and trust the process.
There are many types of losses that you will experience over a lifetime. Each has an emotional impact, whether great or small, acknowledged or unacknowledged. Naming the loss is the first step toward accepting it. The process of acceptance is one of letting go of expectations and attachments and adjusting to a new norm.
Sometimes that new normal involves a change in roles. Where once you were a wife, daughter, husband, or son, now you may be a caregiver. Where once you had the strength to do all of your daily tasks, now you may need assistance. Where once you did not have to live on a budget, now you may need to curtail your spending. Where once you took great pride in your job, now you may be called (or forced) to reinvest your energy elsewhere. New roles bring new challenges and new opportunities.
Remember, this moment is an opportunity to connect to Love and so to live into the fullness of who you are.
As always, do what best awakens you to Love,
Your Inner Wisdom
