Whilst grief is dark, empty, lonely, scary, isolating, painfully painful, heartbreaking..... I’m sure there are many more adjectives I could use, and go on and on... 💔
A journey no one else can travel for you.
But, it can be liberating.
When you connect with your inner light. When you surrender.
And allow love to show you the way.
Connecting with your inner beliefs, your core self, allowing it to shine through,
to all the good in the world.
To show you how truly blessed you are.
In these brief moments, for many months they would be clouded by anxiety,
just waiting for the light to go out.
The darkness to take over,
to settle in.
Not knowing how long it planned to stay.
Feeling completely helpless.
Unable to have any control. Frozen in time. In a nightmare.
I hated being told that time heals.
I don’t like waiting.
I don’t like not being in control.
Patience is not one of my virtues.
And very slowly,
I emerge out of the darkness.
Connecting with my inner light.
Embracing its warmth.
Allowing it to shine out, into the world.
No longer afraid of the darkness.
Nor concerned with when it may take over.
Embracing the moment for what it is.
Sending you love and light today.
That you may find your own light,
To pull you through your own struggles.
