Since A died, my life is filled with duality. Through immense effort and inner work, I have managed to find peace and joy in my life in the “after”. However, those feelings of peace, joy and happiness coexist with my sorrow and grief over what is lost. I’ve come to recognize that grief is filled with duality and conflicting feelings. When I walked A through his transition from life to death, I again felt such duality within me. Although I was witnessing incredible pain and suffering of both body and soul, it was also the most beautiful and meaningful period of my entire life. I don’t know that there exists a more meaningful act that we can perform for one another as human beings than to be present with death and not run away from it. Duality has become the fabric of my existence. And I’m ok with that. Life is both painful and terrible and gorgeous and magical all at once. Living a wholehearted life means accepting the fullness of it. That’s something that A taught me. And that is a gift that transcends his death 💗

You can hold onto anger. You can be mad. You can be as bitter as bitter can be. But eventually you have to let go or the world will make you 💙 •
Episode 6 out tomorrow morning! And ANGER is the word.

You can hold onto anger. You can be mad. You can be as bitter as bitter can be. But eventually you have to let go or the world will make you 💙 • Episode 6 out tomorrow morning! And ANGER is the word.

Today I found out that a friend of mine passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. She was just a few years older than me, a mother of 4.

I’m in shock, and I’m grieving hard! The grief is not for myself, but for those who loved her. Her husband, her children, her parents, etc.

I believe that once you’ve experience personal loss (my father passed away almost three years ago), you have a whole new level of grief for others. You grieve for those left behind, because you know that pain, you know that feeling of loss. Your heart can’t help but break for them.

You can’t force an order on pain. You can’t make grief tidy or predictable. Grief is as individual as love: every life, every path, is unique. There is no pattern, and no linear progression. Despite what many “experts” believe, there are no stages of grief. 
Wishing for more people in your life who get that? The Writing Your Grief course is a place where you can tell the whole truth and not hear a bit of advice. We start together on November 12th. Come see.

Honoring All Saints Day. The day after All Hallow’s Eve and before All Souls Day, we remember the ascended masters and ask as we pay homage to those that have been before us. Those crossed over, the loved and lost. So it is. 💫
.
Poem of Remembrance | art link in BIO
‘Tis hard to break the tender cord
When love has bound the heart,
‘Tis hard, so hard to speak the words
“We must forever part.”
Dearest, loved one, we must lay thee
In the peaceful grave’s embrace,
But thy memory will be cherished
‘Til we see they heavenly face.

Grieving and feeling the pain are important. Sometimes we try to skip to the trusting God part, but God is big enough to hold our sorrow and our anger. We can trust him with all of our emotions too

Last year, Nov. 2017, I was stressed but in love. This time last year I used seeing who is now my baby daddy, as a way to brighten my day. He and I were close friends with benefits. We were sneaking around together, getting more intimate and but also considering stopping what we were doing. 
I was taking 9 classes in my highschool/college program and felt overworked but happy all the same because of him. I was a virgin! I had no idea what was in store for me, how much heartache and pain I was about to experience. I had no idea that in just a month I'd be pregnant, that in a few months after that I'd start bleeding and find out that the worst thing I could've ever thought of would happen to me. 
This time last year I was so sure id have a great winter break, a great new year, spring semester, summer vacation; and yet I've spent all this time grieving, confused, heartbroken and angry. 
But I pray that this time NEXT year my life is completely flipped, happy and leading me on a path to a brighter future ♡

For many, a new month means a fresh start. But for some, a new month is a reminder of seasons changing, and often a reminder that our loved ones aren’t here to bear witness. If you find yourself feeling extra anxious and/or sad as new seasons approach, this may often be the case. It is important to remember that our journey through grief is constant - there will always be highs and lows, and a change in season may make our loss feel more pronounced. That is ok. You are not alone. ✨

🍃 The upward lift of joy and happiness can feel like a sweet relief when we are feeling the weight of deep and heavy grief.⠀
⠀
This is a blessing when we need a reprieve from the pain. But when we choose this option too often, we never end up taking the time to feel our grief, mourn our losses, and honor who has left us.⠀
⠀
But even when our grief goes unnoticed, it remains within us - weighing us down and diminishing our ability to enjoy our lives. This can turn into a constant, subtle (or not so subtle) depression, prolonging the process of grief indefinitely if we aren't careful.⠀
⠀
If you suspect this is happening to you, it's time to break out of the cycle. Once a year I run a Grief Detox, a free 5-day event where I guide you in moving through stuck grief and releasing it once and for all. You can sign up via my profile link.⠀
⠀
Grief is always hard, but there are ways to make it easier. No matter how broken your heart is, it's never too late to heal.

7 weeks today since the last time I spent the day on a date with you. I miss you. Grief comes in waves. At first it felt like I was about to drown and I had to allow friends and family to keep me afloat. Now sometimes it’s calm in the ocean and I’m laying on my back in peace, looking at the sky. Other times I’m fighting the current and just surviving the power of the massive waves.

This photo was taken by my child as we were leaving the cemetery, where we laid my mom to rest. The flower was from her casket spray. It was a cold, rainy day and a storm was coming in. Definitely one of the darkest days of my life, in many ways. But, as you can see, there was still beauty in that day. I miss her so much. #beauty #griefquotes #grief #missmymom #missingmymom #instaquotes #poetrycommunity #rip #griefpoetry #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #quotestags #quotesgram

Children's Grief Awareness Day, November 15th
________________________________________

On January 8th, 1966, at the age of 10, I became a member of a club when my 41-year-old dad died.

I was not seeking membership into this club. It didn't require any talent or specific skill. There were no age or gender requirements. There was no monetary fee.

Once there, I hadn't a clue what the ground rules were.

How should I behave? 
Should I tell others I belong? 
How long will my membership last? 
Why was I selected to join this club?

The Grief Club.

Grieving children are courageous, having to deal with "big" feelings when they are not ready to do so. 
Grieving children are full of wisdom when given the opportunity to share their thoughts. 
Grieving children are resilient, but only when they are supported to be so.

As we lead up to "children's grief awareness day" I hope you will share your story of childhood bereavement or that of a child you love and care about.

Is there a way you would like to honor a grieving child in your life? (that child might just be the little child inside of you)

I was listening to an old episode of @babepodcast the other day and they were talking about why we do things like stalk our exes social media profiles. @larzmarie likened it to self-mutilation and #selfharm on some level. We want to control the hurt we feel. When I go digging into my old text messages or photos with my parents, it’s because I want to feel something. But I want to choose the pain on my own terms because it “hurts so good”. #adayinthelifewithgrief

Make sure you open up. Cry, scream, curse, do what you need to do to get rid of all of that extra inner turmoil. Don't carry that around with you, because eventually its gonna fall out anyway and you won't be able to do anything about it. ♥
You got this.

Sometime ago, I was so tired and felt like giving up. As I ran down the road to catch a ride to work, I felt drained, worn out and mad at all the wrong things happening in my life. I told myself again that it didn't have to be this way..I felt deeply hurt.

I got to the car, panting heavily and sweating, feeling scattered. And the thought came.. The one and only "if my Dad was alive, things would be different" thought came to me and It pained me because I knew it was true. I mean all these years would have been different.. Each time that thought gets triggered, 
It meant something terrible happened or I'm going through a dark place that I knew wouldn't even exist if He were alive.. In life, I have had to face the world alone, leave my family behind, move to a new city, get a job, work and travel long hours each day, being underpaid and so on. Life was a mess, things were difficult most times and I could not see the silver lining in all of what I went through, and then I kept wishing He never died because I would not be suffering like this if He were here.
 I wanted him to be proud of me but deep down I wasn't proud of myself.

But as I looked out the car window, staring at nothing, I felt Him telling me he is proud of me. It felt like He was talking to me. He told me that I'm strong and He sees my pain and it would be all over soon, things would be better. I felt His presence. I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, opened them and felt this peace within me. 
This is to someone out there who feels like He/she is letting their deceased loved ones down and telling themselves that they aren't proud of them. Well, truth is you're living, you're strong and you're thriving... That's all that truly matters. Take your time, battle it out because in the end We win.

💫When it came time for my brother to leave this earth, I couldn’t wrap my head around a loss so deep. To cope with this loss I thought of my brother as being like stars in the sky - whether daytime or nighttime they were always there. From then on he would be our guardian angel, a shining bright star in our lives. Remembered as the rare, special kind of person that so effortlessly replaced darkness with the brightest light you could imagine. 
The past 11.5 years have been all about making peace with the heavy days passed and believing in the lighter days ahead. And if I’ve learned anything from the heavy days, it is that some things in life cannot be fixed, they can only be carried - and you have to do your best to carry those things lightly. 
A reminder to approach the dark days of your heart with love and compassion - they have taught you so much and given you more than you can imagine.

💫When it came time for my brother to leave this earth, I couldn’t wrap my head around a loss so deep. To cope with this loss I thought of my brother as being like stars in the sky - whether daytime or nighttime they were always there. From then on he would be our guardian angel, a shining bright star in our lives. Remembered as the rare, special kind of person that so effortlessly replaced darkness with the brightest light you could imagine. The past 11.5 years have been all about making peace with the heavy days passed and believing in the lighter days ahead. And if I’ve learned anything from the heavy days, it is that some things in life cannot be fixed, they can only be carried - and you have to do your best to carry those things lightly. A reminder to approach the dark days of your heart with love and compassion - they have taught you so much and given you more than you can imagine. #grief #griefquotes #griefsupport #griefjourney #griefandloss #mentalhealth #selflove #bereavement #griefcoping #closertoclouds

Kicking it old school with a pen and spiral notebook, writing out my DED Talk for Death Faire on Saturday at The Plant in Pittsboro. “FallingThrough Fear to Rise Again” is my title. It’s about how to use skydiving to help summon the courage to face your fears. My idea is based upon the C. S. Lewis quote in A Grief Observed: “ no one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.” #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #amwriting #speech #grief #griefquotes #widow #fear #riseagain #strongwomen #writers #love #missingyou #pittsboro #northcarolina #cslewis #death #deathfaire

This month is very special to us as it’s National Children’s Grief Awareness Month. During November we will be sharing stories from our families about their experience in grief-filled shoes. While these experiences may be displaying raw emotion, know that at the heart of every story is a foundation of hope that allows them to walk this journey. ⠀

"A beautiful soul is not forgotten". .
.
I shed many tears today as I write this post in ode to another amazing woman and friend who has just passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer. As with so many, Helen was far too young to leave this earth...she had so many adventures ahead of her with her beautiful children and family. I repost these images in her honour as our last conversations centered around her love for photography and her desire to explore the real wilds of The Bahamas.. to see the pink flamingos and Roseate Spoonbills that I had the privilege of capturing. Unfortunately time escaped us and the trips never happened but I hold close to my heart the knowledge that my images inspired and moved Helen and brought her happiness during tough times. I have known Helen since I was about 7 or 8, I guess (40+ years), from when I started school with her sister. Many nights over the years were spent at their house, and while there was a gap in the years as we each explored our own paths, I am happy that we were able to reconnect over something we both love. Helen truly was an amazing soul and will live in the hearts of so many as will her beautiful images of Spanish Wells sunsets. The next few posts are dedicated to Helen who inspired me to take the journey and adventures I have taken this year. 💕

You’re always on my mind. Every day so many things remind me of you. People bring things up, and I think of you. I see you infront of me, quite clearly still but I do notice I start to forget things. What did your voice sound like exactly? I’m not sure. All I know is that I miss you terribly dad, I miss you in ways I didn’t know I could. #grief #grieving #griefquotes #grievingjourney #death #suicide #suicideawareness #grievingdaughter

🕰 Has anyone else experienced something like this? Last night I got chills when I noticed this antique clock from my Mom’s house was stopped at 11:11 and the second hand stopped on the 15th - the day she died. Since we lost her, it seems like every time we look at the clock, it’s 11:11 and we keep asking ourselves, what does this mean? It has to mean *something*, right? Now, I know we may have subconsciously trained ourselves to instinctively know it’s a certain time like a dog knows it’s time to eat or time for its owner to come home, but every part of me wants and needs to believe it’s Mom, watching out and looking over us...a message. So, it’s 11:11, ✨make a wish✨ I wish that you’re okay out there, Mom, wherever you are, and that you know that we’re doing okay today. Maybe not good. Maybe not great. But we’re okay. We’re all okay 💕

Its been almost 6 months since I graduated. Almost 6 months since I've seen him, spoken to him. And yet, he's still has a huge impact on me. I still think about him everyday, associate my memories of him with the thoughts of my baby and instead of feeling solely love for her, I feel anger and hatred for him. 
I don't want to feel that. 
I want to let these negative feelings go for the sake of myself so that I can think about Hidaya in a loving way, without interference. 
But I'm not saying I want to forgive him, because I don't think I could ever forgive him. The only way I could forgive him is if he was to bring Hidaya back to me and that's not happening.
