I feel myself getting stronger in their absence. Their voice, their laughter, those little things they did to make me smile…they’re gone. BUT the way they touched my life, the love they put in my heart, and how they changed who I am in this world…..those will never ever go away. They are part of who I am today. And THAT is a beautiful thing.
Do not spend your time coddling the trauma of someone’s passing, for it will only create a stagnation of sorts, a halt of what is coming to you and almost bring about an uninvited complacency. It will pull your joy from you and leave you feeling hopeless.
Instead, rise above the discomfort, reach beyond the trauma, give up the upsets. And Be Who You Are Meant To Be. Do not allow their death to stop you from living.
Ohhhh and if you let go of the anguished memories of the bond that keep you awake at night, if you release the darkness you seem to hold onto in spite of the pain and you move beyond the grief you still experience….you will NOT let go of the relationship.
Letting go of all that will only enhance your experience of love. Although they are gone….you are still connected and you will always be in relationship with them…it just looks different. There is comfort in that, isn’t there? KNOWING that beyond what your mind can comprehend, beyond what your eyes can see, beyond the veil… your loved ones watch, protect and wait for you.
As you sit and reflect on those you’ve lost… may you remember the beauty, the love & the joy you shared and hold onto THAT.
Rise Up, Forgive, Reignite, Step Out, Embrace and LIVE LIFE in their absence.
So take yourself on. Step outside the comfort of the sadness and find joy in it. Find the joy that they brought to you and share it with others.
Your God Girl,
