Sunday morning I had a very sad dream. Sarah was about 2 years old in this dream. It seems like just a couple years ago she was our tiny tippy toed dancer. I woke up to that dream and immediately started crying. 11 months without her was just a couple days away. It doesn't seem quite possible still... it never will. I got through that day. I even got the giggles with a sweet young friend during church - totally at an inappropriate time! That is something Sarah and I would do quite often. Laugh at things that were funny to maybe only us at the wrong times! Sunday night Dave and I watched a PBS special on country music that highlighted Jimmy Rogers, among other early country musicians. I grew up hearing Jimmy Rodgers. My dad was a fan, so I heard Jimmy on his records but I also heard my dad play and sing his songs. Hearing those songs that night took me back to those precious moments of listening to my dad sing. I could see him, playing his Martin, smiling and singing! It made me miss him. A lot. More than I have in a long time. I've been missing him hard since that night. The timing of that dream and that PBS special in 1 day ... These memories and thoughts are sweet, but they are also a double punch in the gut. Sarah was 6 when he died. She only had 6 years of memories with her Grandpa Capet. Not nearly enough. 29 years of memories are not enough either. Not. At. All. Today as I am sitting here, I am filled with thoughts of my dad showing Sarah how to play guitar and the 2 of them singing those early country songs together. I can just imagine how much fun they are having and how beautiful they sound together. So. So. Beautiful. 🎶🧡🎶 #proudmom #grievingmom #grief #hurting #grievingmama #cancersucks #ihatecancer #griefandloss #brave #courage #strong #resilience #forevermissed #copingwithgrief #griefsupport #imissmydaughter #shatteredheart #adultchildloss #death #selfcare #griefsucks #griefawareness #griefrecovery #jimmyrogers #imissmydad #memories Смотреть полностью

Sorry, I've not been able to post anything for a little while. I had the anniversary of my Mum's passing and I just shut down and found it really hard to do anything... Forced myself to go for a long walk today and do some yoga, which has helped me feel a little more 'myself' again. I remembered this video I took of a walk a did very soon after my Mum's funeral. If you watch closely, you'll see a little orange orb floating at the bottom of the video, following me as I walk... I'm convinced this was my Mum keeping me company that day! ❤ . #spirits #orbs #otherrealm #theotherside #angels #angelsarenear #alwayswithme #copingwithloss #grief #bereavement #death #grieving #hope #healing #supportive #inclusive #newpage #blogger #experiences #love #survivinggrief #newcontent #survival #help #experiences #copingwithgrief #storiesofgrief #letstalkaboutgrief #losingalovedone Смотреть полностью

Trial and error #2 . First steps on my less is more, and conscious living. Replacing plastic toothbrushes. They do not sell them in our local shops, so I have to order. Usually amazon sends stuff in cardboard that can be recycled. NOT TODAY 🤬🤬🤬. Today they decided to use a plastic, non-recyclable HUGE envelope that would fit the toothbrush factory in it 😡😡😡. It’s like amazon is taking the p.... Well, you know how to finish the sentence. I just can’t win 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️. The brush handles and the box they came in are recyclable. The bristles are not. Still need to find an alternative, but with that envelope the bristles are nothing 😔. #declutter #decluttering #sustainableliving #clutterfree #clutter #declutterbug #declutterchallenge #donatetocharity #simplystyleyourspace #simplifyyourlife #declutteryourhome #declutteryourlife #declutteryourmind #heartspace #heartspaceliving #selfcare #minimalistic #minimalism #griefwarrior #copingwithgrief #griefsucks #healyourlife #beginningminimalist #lighterliving #journeyintostillness #lessismore #keepitsimple #goingminimal #bambootoothbrush Смотреть полностью

Would you believe it if I told you I trust in the Lord in His reasoning for my parents abbreviated life? • It doesn’t seem right that a young girl would lose her mother at 13 & father at 27. It would seem fair to assume there would be a lot of anger and frustration. Maybe even loss of faith. • All of this was true for me. I couldn’t believe ‘God would take’ my father after I already lost my mom...but I can confidently say: I realize there is not a REASON for everything in life — however there is a LESSON in everything in life. Join me live today to hear what I’ve learned in loss... Смотреть полностью

Hello friends, if you are located in the Nashville area I would LOVE for you to come out and support the 2019 Women’s Works Festival at Looby theatre. Friday @7 :30 I will be joining some phenomenal women as they share readings of short plays, a short film, and more, and as I present my short fiction “Breaking Things”. It is, as always, a story I dedicate to my mother. My sisters. What women can do and what love can withstand in the face of grief if you only have a hand to hold and a story to tell. Visit twtp.org to check out the full festival lineup. Multi day passes are available and if you want to see me read and come connect with me I would love for you to be there this Friday at 7:30. Thank you so much 🌿 • • • • #multiplelosses #grief #griefandloss #griefandlosssupport #griefjourney #copingwithloss #missingmom #infantlossawareness #griefawareness #copingwithanxiety #poetrycommunityofig #poetrypage #allforher #feministpoetry #griefquotes #missingmysister #griefcomesinwaves #griefcommunity #griefpoetry #lifeafterloss #copingwithgrief #nashville #nashvillelocal #supportlocalart #nashvillelocalart #twtpWW13 #localtheatre #nashvilletheatre #supportartists Смотреть полностью

My tears feel like failing rain. They help me to unleash griefs pain. The pain that shattered my heart when you went away. The pain that makes the brighest sky seem gray. As I watch for the rainbow, staring patiently at the sky, I imagine a silhouette of an Angel way up high.

At a group meeting last week, this book was recommended for grieving children. ✨ I had a quick read and absolutely loved it. I have ordered myself a copy to use with my clients. It’s a simple, heartfelt and ultimately uplifting book for anyone coping with loss. ✨ “If Mum has gone, how do you carry on?Missing her feels like a dark cloud that follows you around,or like swimming to a shore that never comes any nearer.But memories are like a jumper that you can cuddle and wear.And Mum's jumper might be a way to keep her close.” ✨ #bookrecommendation #copingwithgrief #hopeafterloss #mumsjumper #childhoodbereavement #griefsupport #bereavementsupport #jaydeperkin Смотреть полностью

I’ve posted a few stories over the last few weeks about feeling low, crying etc. I know these are normal feelings of grief but in the last few days I’ve realised this is too much. I really don’t feel like me and whilst I’m pretending to be ok I’m really not. I’ve been turning to food, and Saturday turned to wine which I did not feel the benefit of come Sunday morning. - - My work offer an employee assistance programme through which we can speak to a counsellor so today I’ve put in the initial request for help. - - Even the strongest of us sometimes need to turn to others. - - #ourparentsaredyingletstalk #fatherdied #grief #loss #copingwithgrief #everyonegrievesdifferently #fatherlessdaughter #talkingaboutdeath #death #talkinghelps #support #instasupport #employeeassistance #counselling #professionalhelp #alwayssad #struggling #lackingmotivation #cryingallthetime . #needtotalk Смотреть полностью

Non avevo più un masterizzatore da circa una decina di anni (infatti tutto l'archivio su CD e DVD dati si ferma al 2009, forse ce ne sono un paio del 2010), e stamattina mi è arrivato il SuperDrive USB per il MacBook. Un coso minimalista senza manco un pulsante on/off. Zero. I primi dieci minuti ho pensato non funzionasse, sentivo il disco girare, ma non appariva da nessuna parte sul computer. Panico. Poi improvvisamente MacBook e SuperDrive (dovrò trovare dei nomi più simpatici per 'sti due, tipo Hardcastle & McCormick, che probabilmente ricorderò solo io) hanno deciso di iniziare a parlarsi, e ho ritrovato foto, disegni, progetti, e file che mi ricordavo di avere da qualche parte, ma non sapevo più dove. Ho anche ritrovato una moltitudine di foto e documenti che avevo rimosso dalla memoria (mia e del MacBook), e che, visti tutte assieme, in blocco, pesantissimi, su un totale di tre DVD dati, mi hanno fatto capire la mole del lavoro che ho fatto non solo effettivamente in quel periodo della mia vita, ma anche successivamente per superare quella fase. In questo momento sto vivendo ancora un'altra fase, che temo non sarà altrettanto facile da superare — e ora dico che quella è stata facile da superare solo perché, comparandola agli ultimi tre anni, e col proverbiale senno di poi, ho capito che ero io a dare a certe persone, cose, eventi, parole più importanza di quanta ne meritassero. Adesso è diverso, perché Carola è e sarà sempre importante, e impossibile da "rimuovere" come persone, cose, eventi, parole senza importanza. «No hay separación definitiva mientras exista el recuerdo», dice uno degli aforismi che circolano su internet, attribuito a Isabel Allende — ma non importa se l'abbia detto o scritto davvero lei o altri, credo sia davvero così: non c'è separazione definitiva fino a quando c'è il ricordo, e non è necessario né un masterizzatore né un hard disk esterno. . . . . . #progetto2020 #project2020 #onwardsandupwards #onwards #upwards #recoup #regroup #soundandvision #masterizzatore #superdrive #quandosietefelicifatecicaso #Carola #mimanchi #missyou #missingyoueveryday #sistersareforever #sisters #sorelle #carolaupinthesky #copingwithgrief Смотреть полностью

Start small if you prefer. When did you check your spices the last time? This shelf was full, and a lot of it was out of date by years 🤦🏼‍♀️because I don’t use it. I will make sure in the future to only stick with spices that are used for more than just one or two dishes.

The outgoings are slowing down. In this case it is good to see that outgoings are still higher than what comes in. I don’t think I have ordered anything apart from a set of cheap cork place mats, and oil to seal the table, over the last three weeks. Not a single book. No ornament, knick knack ... That is a big achievement 🥳. Today I release 3 bags of clothes donated to the Salvation Army. Mainly hubby’s clothes but also mine and daughters. I am ready to at least let his clothes go. He passed away so suddenly almost two years ago, it left me in denial for quite some time. I still can’t wrap my head around it to be honest. For me, letting go of his clothes, is some form of acknowledgment that he will not be back. Ever😢. And breathe! The blue bag is full of kitchen items for people that actually cook/ bake 😂 but some of the items are also to big for us now 😔. I have been asked where it will go. In this case my friend will take it all. If that is not an option for you, check charity shop if they will take them. What about women’s shelter in your area? Otherwise recycle bin or skip as your last option. #griefsucks ! #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #declutteringmyhome #declutteringmymind #peacefulhome #peacefulmind #grief #griefwarrior #copingwithgrief #sustainable #sustainableliving #sustainablelife #simplify #simplifyyourlife #lessismore #hsp #highlysensitiveperson #anxiety #tranquillicious Смотреть полностью

**Parenting through Grief ** So most of you know Ebben was our second son, he has a wonderful big brother called Elian who is 3 years old...a particularly difficult and demanding age but also an age where they are incredibly lovable and its wonderful to see them growing and changing so much. Elian has been my reason to get up in the morning, my strength to keep going and keep moving forward, even when the waves of grief have been so strong I didnt think I could get past them. He has no idea just how much I owe to him, and will have no idea how much I've relied on his presence in our life. But I have to be incredibly honest...I dont think I've been a very good mum to Elian these past few weeks. Yes I've realised I love that boy more than I ever thought possible, and I thank god that I have him in my life every day as I know he is the reason I am able to keep functioning most days. I've made the most of every cuddle and every chance to kiss him and tell him I love him as I shall no longer ever take these simple acts for granted. But I also know my patience has been finer, my temper shorter, some days my compassion and empathy have been non-existent, my energy levels so low I dont want to play or do anything remotely fun...simple answer some days I just dont want to be mum. But it was more than just not wanting to parent, in those early days it took every ounce of energy I had simply to function as a human, there wasnt any left to parent as well. And for that I so often feel guilty and just plain awful that Elian isnt getting me at my best, he isnt getting the mum he deserves. I've made a conscious effort that he shant miss out on things, so even if I'm not feeling strong enough to take him to parties or swim class I make sure someone else can take him. But at home behind closed doors it's often a different case. Now we are 12 weeks into this new life as bereaved parents I am starting to find my new normal, I'm getting better at balancing my grief for Ebben with my ability to be mum to Elian, but it's still hard. I still have days were I just want to lock the entire world out and just be alone...but I'm trying! For Elian I am trying! Смотреть полностью

Dr. Kubler-Ross was a Swiss psychiatrist who introduced the five stages of grief model. . Many people refer to the five stages when discussing their experience grieving the loss of a loved one, and they have been adopted for this purpose. Interestingly, her original model was based on work with terminally ill patients facing their own impending death. . You can learn more about her on the National Institute of Health’s “Changing the face of Medicine” website that highlights America’s women physicians. Смотреть полностью

I love how much he loves books! ⠀ One of the ladies at daycare said to me, “Isn’t it pretty special when one of their first words is BOOK!?” And to be totally honest, I haven’t really slowed down enough to think about it like that! BOOK was one of his first words, and continues to be a favorite pastime. And that is REALLY special. ⠀ ⠀ I pray his passion for reading books only grows stronger! I pray he has teachers that continue to cultivate a love for reading! ⠀ ⠀ “The more that you read, the more things you will know.

I'm not going to complain about hiking in the rain. The northwest had an incredible spring/summer with tons of sun and 70's. I chose the Ornament Trail to Nesika Lodge for my rainy day hike. It's not about views and mt. peaks. It's a beautiful walk in the lush green forest passing multiple waterfalls. The Ornament Trail has gotten over grown since the fire. I asked Griffin to help me. Immediately, a bunny hopped across my path and I noticed my sister's griffin ornament to the right. I knew the griffin ornament I had left was a bit off trail to keep people from taking it down. Once again, as I struggled to find it, I called out to Griffin and asked for help. I took one step, looked up, and there it was. I laughed out loud I was so happy. #hikingtolive #copingwithgrief #ornamenttrail #nesikalodge #larchmttrail Смотреть полностью

We don't often do this, but we wanted to share this beautiful post from Charlotte, who recently received #bereavement support from us 💜 -------------- "My last session with Cruse today and I couldn’t think of a better way to capture the moment than this picture. Cruse has helped me in more ways than I could ever imagine. The amazing and lovely counsellor I have seen has made me feel and realise there is a light at the end of the tunnel. She has made me feel tons better and start to think more positive and gain the confidence in talking more. I can’t thank her and Cruse enough for what they have done. Leaving our last session and seeing a rainbow cemented everything for me. There is light at the end of the tunnel and you can get through anything. Talking is OK and sometimes we need to open up for our mental sanity. Cruse has helped me so much and I will forever be grateful. 💕" Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Charlotte. #SundayThoughts #GriefSupport #BereavementGroups #Bereavement #BereavementSupport #Cruse #CruseBereavementCare #CruseCare #BereavementJourney #GriefJourney #IMissYou #GriefTips #LossAndGrief #Grieving #CopingWithGrief #HopeAgain #Rainbow Смотреть полностью

Why do we have the need for two different sizes of plates? Well, others might even have more choice, but we don’t. Although ours still work perfectly fine, I might change them next month when daughter wants to go to Ikea. MUST NOT BUY STUFF THAT IS NOT NEEDED. MUST NOT ... I have seen plain white rectangle ones that cost about £2 a piece. Simple, minimal but most of all, less of a reminder of a life that is gone. Just some small changes to make moving forward a little easier on this grief journey. Changes, rather than holding on, work better for me compared to others, but that is fine. We all cope differently. What ever supports YOUR emotional wellBEing on YOUR grief journey IS FINE. These are small changes in our house, as I can’t afford big changes. We will see how it goes once we are in Ikea. Maybe I run out straight away breathing into a paper bag 🥴. Must not buy ... Just another question at the end, have you good good China lingering in your cupboards? Is that a thing in your home? How often do you use it? We never got into it, although both our families did. Well, we never entertained anyway, so there was no need for it.

Feeling Empowered: Solo Hike Edition 👉🏼 it was a tough morning of self reflection and hard truths. So I packed my bag with my books and journal, threw on my favorite podcast and drove up to the mountain. After a nice but brief hike up the Winsor, I found a nice rock to sit on while listening to live music echo from Ski Santa Fe in the distance. . . . To me, hiking is normally a group activity, but I really enjoyed taking it at my own pace today. I have asthma so hiking with others gives me a lot of anxiety and I find that I often make excuses not to go. I’m glad I learned I can do this activity alone and free of anxiety. Do you like to hike solo? Смотреть полностью

And there is me thinking I am getting somewhere. I just opened the kitchen cupboard to pull ONE Pyrex dish out because it is to big for us now. We still have got two smaller ones which are more than enough. About 10 items later the cupboard looks much more empty. Madness I hear you say? No, madness is having all this in the cupboards, yet nothing has been used in years. One of the baking thingies even still got the sticker in the bottom because it hasn’t been used once. #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #declutteringmyhome #declutteringmymind #peacefulhome #peacefulmind #grief #griefwarrior #copingwithgrief #sustainable #sustainableliving #sustainablelife #simplify #simplifyyourlife #lessismore #hsp #highlysensitiveperson #anxiety #tranquillicious Смотреть полностью

👣 STEPS 👣 • • 8.7 miles in the late summer sun ☀️🌡, that was just straight tough.😝 • • Head wasn't in it and eventually I caved to me telling myself I couldn't do it. ''I'm too hot; my back hurts; my knee feels funny; I'm so thirsty''. Over and over and over. • • That's what can happen in long runs sometimes, that mental battle is constant. • • But no 1 run defines you and I'll go again, maybe even as early as this evening! Don't let anything keep you down. Dust yourself off and go again 💪🏻. • • 📖 Failure's not an option. It's a step 📖 Смотреть полностью
Nadia Wilson 👉scroll for perspective.

👉scroll for perspective. "The King is in the field". We just passed the halfway mark of Elul. This statement has been said for hundreds, if not thousands of years. I was outside praying and singing praises to God, speaking His promises out of my mouth and into my ears. Why? I'm alone, not at church, no music. Just me and my voice? Because, right now I am fighting something I've never had in me. A darkness that is lying to me. Telling me I'm not good enough, that the world would be better off without me. That my husband and kids would be better off with someone else. That I don't do anything right. That I'm a failure. Sounds crazy right? That's true. It is. So, in my moments of clarity I made a decision. I'm praising God every day. I'm going to speak His promises. God will deliver me from this! But, I also know that He is building compassion in me for all those who are or will suffer from this darkness due to losing all they have in a natural disaster, or in recession, or losing a close friend or family member. I TRUST God to know the hour HE chooses for my deliverance. I saw this field out of the garage window while singing. And for a moment, I actually began LOOKING for the King! I mean, guys, when you're DESPERATE you are DESPERATE for an ENCOUNTER with the King! The grass is so high I thought "that's ready to be hayed!" (homestead mama here!). It is READY to be HARVESTED. Honestly, it is so high, unless you are looking for Him, you might not see Him! How many times does the Harvest LOOK for the Harvester? How often does the Harvest SEEK to be Harvested? Or, are we just chillin', waving in the wind, HOPING someday God finds us? Not me yall! I'm now LOOKING for God! I'm LOOKING for His Son. He KNOWS I'm BEGGING to see Him in anything! For the next two weeks, leading up to the Feast of Trumpets, where someday the Last Trump will sound and the King will be Standing on the Mount, my prayer is that the people of God straighten their stalk tall, that we stop waving and we start LOOKING for the KING in the FIELD. That we LOOK for our HARVESTER, our REDEEMER. 🙏🙌. . . . #wellwateredwomen #elul #thekingofkings #transformationnation #THISISV1 #movement #revival #tc15 Смотреть полностью

I don’t normally repost stuff, but this one sums up my journey right now. Reposted from @yogiclaire99 🙏🏻💕. A lot of my stuff in the house has gone. I will now take my time to work through my books and some other items, but I almost feel daily relief from releasing more stuff. The energy feels lighter, my mind feels clearer. Not calmer, to focused on more decluttering, but clearer. I have been rigorous with clearing. Lots has gone, but I still feel like that there is to much. Decluttering can become addictive 😱. #declutter #decluttering #declutteringmylife #declutteringmyhome #declutteringmymind #peacefulhome #peacefulmind #grief #griefwarrior #copingwithgrief #sustainable #sustainableliving #sustainablelife #simplify #simplifyyourlife #lessismore #hsp #highlysensitiveperson #anxiety #tranquillicious Смотреть полностью

My mum passed away 13 years ago, the night after she passed was a harvest moon. It was in fact the brightest most beautiful harvest moon I’d ever seen. I remember sitting in the garden with my dad late into the night talking. He and mum were fans of Neil Young and one of their songs was Harvest Moon. It seemed romantic and tragic in the same moment that mum should die that very day. - - I’m not going to put all the lyrics here, you can look them up if you’re interest but to mum and dad... - - “Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon” - - #ourparentsaredyingletstalk #fatherdied #grief #loss #copingwithgrief #everyonegrievesdifferently #fatherlessdaughter #talkingaboutdeath #death #talkinghelps #support #instasupport #motherlessdaughter #anniversary #harvestmoon #neilyoung #september #dance #love #romantic #tragic Смотреть полностью

T H E S A D V E R S I O N O F M E . . . . Ten years ago, I never knew there was a sad version of me. Of course I would cry. Of course I would get upset. But to wear sadness like a personalized jacket? That wasn't an item of clothing I was browsing for back then. _______ But I see it. I see it when I look at the old photos of me. I see it when I compare it to the new. I see the sadness in my eyes. The knowing. The unmistakable stare of a grieving woman. _______ Grief takes too much. Life took away Evalyn and Grief took away the best parts of me. My naievty. My impulsiveness. My ability to live in the moment. But I refuse to let Grief win. _______ I want to be the woman in the photo again. I want to dance on the tables and lie under the stars. I want to worry less and live more. I want to stare anxiety in the face and say "you won't beat me". I want to be brave. Strong. Fearless. I want to be it all. _______ Can I? The truth is, I don't know. But if my living children have taught me anything, it is to live how I would want them to remember me. And Evalyn? I live with a promise to her that I WILL smile a true smile again. To live for her. To step out from the shadows of my fear of the unknown. Because many years ago, Evalyn's mummy was a woman who was unafraid. And somewhere - SOMEWHERE - she still exists. ❤ _______ #afterevalyn #lifeafterloss #copingwithgrief #babylossawareness #babylosssupport #bereavedparent #stillborn #stillbirthsurvivor #findingmyself #personalstruggle #missingyou #needingyou #lovingyou #makingyouproud #proudmumof3 Смотреть полностью

🥊 FIGHT THROUGH THE PAIN 🥊 • • It's two weeks until @berlinmarathon 🤪so this #throwbackthursday I'm thinking back to April and my third @londonmarathon experience. A PB but not the time I wanted, I still came away happy, delirious, dehydrated and full of post run positive vibes. • • Still though, the marathon is a brutal distance 🥴🤢 that takes no prisoners. And worst of all unlike 10ks or even a half marathon you only get a good crack at it once every 4 months 🤦🏻‍♂️ (unless you are nuts like @pauladdicott and run consecutive marathons over multiple wknds). • • These two pics pretty sum up how I was feeling that day post race, once I'd dragged myself to bag collection and on to my number 1 supporter @vernon_jazzy ❤. • • The first: That was the worst experience of my life 😵. • • The second: That was the best experience of my life 🤩. • • And that often sums up marathon running at times. How much pain are you able to take, then keep holding on and fight through it when you think you can't take the pain any longer. • • A weird addiction I must admit. You'll just have to try it rather than taking my word for it but I reckon you'd love it 👌🏻. • • 📖 There is no pain that I cannot and will not fight through 📖 Смотреть полностью

Following your bliss right now would be going back to bed. I apologise in advance, just in case I am off with the fairies 🧚🏻‍♀️ later. Or snore 😴on the mat when I am supposed to run a class. I had an early night. As a matter of fact, with all the decluttering lately I had three early nights in a row, but for whatever reason, I woke up at 4.25 today and could not go back to sleep. Also tried a sleep meditation but my body wasn’t having it. A list of jobs already done just to keep me going. Self-care is not easy at times when your body is not playing by the rules. Or maybe things are changing again due to the menopause. Who knows and who 💤 💤 💤 💤 ... Sorry, where was I? Keep moving, keep moving.

How long you grieve is not a reflection of how deeply you loved someone dear to you. ✨ Don’t give yourself a time limit, everyone grieves differently and for different lengths of time. ✨ What is certain is that the pain will ease gradually! Things will get easier. ✨ I wish someone told me in those early years of being orphaned that it was okay to have fun and enjoy life, I eventually figured that out 😉 and I’m here to encourage you to do the same 🤗🤗 ✨ How a child grieves can have a BIG impact on their immediate and long term future. That’s where Letters of Hope can help, please DM for more info on our email support service or to request a list of resources that can help with coping with grief. ✨ #LettersofHope #copingwithgrief #hopeafterloss #lifeafterloss #lifeafterdeath #griefsupport #bereavementsupport #childhoodbereavement Смотреть полностью

In moments of serious stress we all try to find a way to cope. I found myself craving ice cream 🍨 which is a very unusual thing for me. I’d usually go for chips or anything salty. Still, there I was, going for thee (!!!) scoops at once. Did it make me feel better? Yes, and no. Ice cream is not good for me, but this week I’m not going to argue with myself. This week I’m saying to myself: “it’s OK, take your time, have some ice cream if it makes you feel better”. And I’m listening. #copingwithgrief #coping #copingwithdeath #copingstrategies #icecream #coaching #coachinglife #takingtime #takingtimeforme #stressrelief #stress #stressmanagement Смотреть полностью

Finding joy in waking up next to all kinds of beautiful people in all kinds of beautiful places...My tentmate for the Huayhuash Trek was an excellent pairing. I’m so grateful for her company. . . .🤓👉 Grief Healing Blog gives seemingly easy advice: "Look for joy in every day. It will be hard to find at first, but in practicing this, it will change your focus so you can embrace what IS rather than merely focusing on what ISN'T. It teaches you to live in the present and appreciate fully. You have lost your big joy in life, and all other small joys may seem" insignificant in comparison, but rather than compare what used to be to what is, learn the ability to appreciate each and every small thing that comes your way...a rainbow, a phone call from a friend, unexpected money, a stranger smiling at you, whatever the small joy, embrace it. It's an art that takes practice and is life changing if you continue it." Смотреть полностью

There’s no course in school about grief. We aren’t taught what grief looks like, how and when it might show up, and how to cope when it does. Grief becomes scary because it’s not talked about. But, at some point in all of our lives, we will experience grief. And so, as a society, we need to make more space for grief. We need to normalize its presence in this world. We need to share our experiences and encourage others to talk about theirs. We need to lean on others for support and be supportive of others. Grief is complex, individualistic, and unpredictable. Grief can make us feel sad, happy, confused, angry, and frustrated. Grief isn’t linear or formulaic. Grief is beautiful evidence of the human capacity to love and be loved. What is grief to you? What’s been your experience with grief? . . . #grief #loss #whatisgrief #normalizegrief #beinghuman #partofbeinghuman #copingwithgrief Смотреть полностью

Health care providers will encounter bereaved individuals throughout their personal and professional lives. The progression from the final stages of cancer to the death of a loved one is experienced in different ways by different individual. Coping with death is usually not an easy process and cannot be dealt with in a cookbook fashion. For many years, the death of a child was something to be whispered about behind closed doors.  Not knowing how to react or what words to say, family and friends would simply ignore the tragedy, perhaps offering a simple, quietly worded “I’m so sorry” and then quickly moving on to the next topic.  Parents were told that “time heals all wounds” and “your child is in a better place,” but often didn’t feel comfortable sharing their grief, while even close friends and family worried about bringing up “painful memories.” Mourning is defined as the public display of grief. While grief focuses more on the internal or intrapsychic experience of loss, mourning emphasizes the external or public expressions of grief. Yet any parent who has lost a child knows that time does not heal all wounds, and grief over the loss of a child to childhood cancer cannot and should not simply be swept under the rug or ignored until it passes. We believe that the lives of children who have lost their battle with childhood cancer should be celebrated.#childhoodcancerawarenessmonth #greif ##childlosssupport #copingwithgrief #lossofachild #fightchildhoodcancer 👊 Смотреть полностью

Ogni tanto al mercato compro degli scampoli di tessuto, con in mente l'idea di farne cose che al momento non posso realizzare, per mancanza di tempo e, soprattutto, spazio — e quindi li conservo per quando potrò realizzare quell'idea. Questo in foto l'ho comprato tempo fa, e vorrei farne un copridivano sagomato. Non ho idea di cosa ci sia scritto sopra, non riesco a distinguere le parole, potrebbe anche esserci scritto "scemo chi legge", ma non fa niente, mi era piaciuta la palette di colori, e anche la scritta illegibile in una di quelle svolazzanti calligrafie che somigliano alla firma di Jane Austen ubriaca. Una volta, chiacchierando con mia sorella Carola, parlavamo di cosa avremmo voluto fare se avessimo avuto la possibilità di non lavorare (ovvero: di non lavorare per poter campare, ché l'idea di "non lavorare", cioè di non fare niente, non è mai piaciuta a nessuna delle due), e io le dissi che sarei stata felice vivendo in una casa tipo Hill Top Farm, la casa di Beatrix Potter, disegnando e costruendo cose per tutta la vita. È ancora così, sarebbe ancora il mio sogno, in teoria. Ma adesso, se pure un giorno riuscissi ad andare a vivere in un posto simile a disegnare e costruire cose, so che non mi renderebbe completamente felice, perché nel mio sogno, nella mia idea di felicità, era implicito e imprescindibile che ci fosse anche Carola... . . . . . #fabric #tessuto #scampoli #printedfabric #calligraphy #handwriting #janeausten #beatrixpotter #hilltopfarm #quandosietefelicifatecicaso #Carola #mimanchi #missyou #missingyoueveryday #sistersareforever #sisters #sorelle #carolaupinthesky #copingwithgrief Смотреть полностью

Today was 👎. I'm constantly exhausted at the moment. Not long after this I was out cold. I have no idea what is going on but it's happening a lot more lately. I'll come home after work and just crash. I don't post regularly to anything but after having built up momentum, I have lost motivation. I tell myself it's because I have writers block and that's partly true. For example, replying back to messages, I see the words but it takes me a while to process them and then coming up with a response is a challenge. I just, the words I want to say don't come out or there's nothing. It's literally like a fog has come down and all I see in my mind is white. I've grieved before, losing family members to illness and I've realised it's a different type of grief. I'm able to write this now because I've had a big nap and I'm thinking....I'm mentally and emotionally exhausted. It's a different type of exhaustion. AND I'm pushing myself too hard to be ok. Someone told me that it's ok to not be ok. I whole heartedly agree, when it comes to others, but when it comes to me? I keep telling myself that I give myself permission to not be ok. I just can't shake the feeling that "sitting in this space" is being selfish though and that my job is to help others and by helping others, I'm not being selfish. Why, why am I SO hard on myself? Where did this come from? _________________________________ #journal #myjourney #mytruth #thisisgrief #thefaceofsadness #livingwithloss #livingwithbabyloss #itsoktonotbeok #mentalhealth #emotionalhealth #mentalexhaustion #emotionalexhaustion #grief #livingwithgrief #copingwithgrief #themanystagesofgrief #differenttypesofgrief #thisiswhyselfcareisimportant #speakout #speakup _________________________________ 📷Samsung S8 Edge 🗓11th September 2019 Смотреть полностью

Nice night for a b-ride. How do you deal with ... sadness, pain, stress, grief, ... feelin blue? For me it depends on my mood. Sometimes I feel like talking about whatever it is that’s got me down with those in my group of close friends... other times I need to go some place quiet & have some thinking time. Some movement like a bike ride or a hike in nature is often a refuge for me from the insanity of this crewel and harsh world.

Grateful for a beautiful swim this morning, in crystal clear waters, with my brother and remembering our late brother, Vern. Our connection remains and on many occasions it is as though you are with us, just out of sight beyond the sets. Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost. One brief moment and all will be as it was before. How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again ___________ ********If you need a chat call LIFELINE now on 13 11 14 (in Australia) or KIDS HELPLINE 1800 551 800 Source: @familyfriendpoems.com #henryscottholland #morningswim #healing #auriccleansing #copingwithgrief #gratitude #ruok #memorial #oceanswimming Смотреть полностью

For years, I wanted to move griefs foggy existence out of the way. I thought the best way to handle grief was to pretend it was not there. Grief blinded me and reminded me of the life and love that was taken from me. . Grief lurks in the shadow of your existence, demanding to be felt and dealt with.

I hear you. The ones that have messaged me to say the decluttering is inspirational. I want to do it but ... Start with finding your WHY. Your why can be the key to getting started and keeping it going. For me I just needed the change again. I made changes in pictures, ornaments ... when hubby passed away to make the house look/ feel different. Now, almost 2 years in, I need to change again. Right now less is more. It helps me to calm the mind which is the main drive. Next, it is soooo much easier/ quicker to tidy the house. Spending less money in the future on stuff that is NEEDED, not everything that is wanted. Find your WHY and then the time to do it. If 10 minutes is all that you have got, then use it. It will soon add up.

The storm before the calm 🤪. Today will be my biggest drop off. There are bags under the yarn, and stuff that has escaped to the sides not in the photo. The car is now packed and meeting with a friend in just over an hour. How do I feel about this? Relief. I have started following pages/ groups/ accounts that live a more minimal life. It is my go to right now to calm the mind. If I am not decluttering, then I watch videos for inspiration: decluttering, minimalism, sustainability ... In one group entry a lady was very upset about letting a specific item go. Then don’t. Decluttering and releasing is supposed to make you feel GOOD, not sad. If you are in tears over every item, then that is of course an issue. Maybe letting go of most of my stuff is easier because of the loss I/ we have experienced. I therefore come from a different, emotional starter point. I have seen YouTube videos where grievers turn into hoarders. I don’t want that for myself. No amount of stuff will ever heal grief. No amount of stuff will ever bring him back. We all cope differently, and again, I hope your journey brings you peace 💕💕💕Hubby would have loved such a decluttered and minimal house ☺️, but he never cared for more environmentally friendly choices. Something that I will try and implement more now. One step at a time. And Breathe 💕🧘🏼‍♀️! . #declutter #decluttering #clutterfree #clutter #declutterbug #declutterchallenge #donatetocharity #simplystyleyourspace #simplifyyourlife #declutteryourhome #declutteryourlife #declutteryourmind #heartspace #heartspaceliving #selfcare #minimalistic #minimalism #griefwarrior #copingwithgrief #griefsucks #healyourlife #beginningminimalist #lighterliving #journeyintostillness #lessismore #goingminimal #hsp #highlysensitiveperson #anxiety #overactivemind Смотреть полностью

Tomorrow (9/10/19) marks the 5 year anniversary of Griffin's death. The first picture is of his first day of Kindergarten at Markham Elementary. He wore his dinosaur pants and told us he wanted to be a paleontologist when he grew up. He was funny, smart and kind. He loved his little sister, Graci. Five years sounds like a long time to society when someone talks about grief. If you look at grief like the age of a child, five years is very young. I love my sweet son, Griffin, and I miss him desperately. I wish so much this wasn't our story. The last picture was taken by his cousin, Chelsea, just days before he died. That series of photos includes silly to serious pictures. I treasure them all. Thank you for following me on this journey. Your love, support, and comments help me daily. Maybe watch one of his movies today at https://vimeo.com/griffinhuber. #copingwithgrief Смотреть полностью

Our physical bodies are continually influenced by energetic forces, causing many different reactions. These energetic forces can be external or internal, we can learn to understand them, how to harness them and how release them. #mandala #chakras #mandalatherapy #arttherapy #therapy #counselling #therapist #counsellingmalmö #therapysweden #therapydemark #therapistmalmö #therapistcopenhagen #skane #copenhagen #malmö #swedishtherapy #danishtherapy #grief #copingwithgrief #death #deathtransition #expressivetherapy #selfcare #selftherapy #wellness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthawareness Смотреть полностью

So I had a go at the spare room/ former office, but this is the best I can do for now. The table has been cleared of paperwork, and only the printer and a salt lamp is left on it. Everything has found a space on the shelves for now, but it is giving me a twitching eye 👁. This is the worst room in the house and far, far, fffaaarrr away from being anything near minimal. I am not sure how to go about it at this point. Major drop off tomorrow which can’t be seen in this photo any longer, and maybe I will have a break. Breathe! Rethink. Well, will have to do it in one of the other rooms as this one is causing me stress. I have gotten a taste of a more minimal life, it it feels good to me. I need to conquer this last room without being stupid 🤦🏼‍♀️. #declutter #decluttering #clutterfree #clutter #declutterbug #declutterchallenge #donatetocharity #simplystyleyourspace #simplifyyourlife #declutteryourhome #declutteryourlife #declutteryourmind #heartspace #heartspaceliving #selfcare #minimalistic #minimalism #griefwarrior #copingwithgrief #griefsucks #healyourlife #beginningminimalist #moon #phaseofthemoon #waningmoon #dogsofinstagram #lighterliving #journeyintostillness #lessismore #goingminimal Смотреть полностью

Life goal: 🔅high vibrations🔅 ▪️Try to control what and how you respond and react to what’s happening. Not everyone or everything deserves your time, energy and attention. Your power is in taking control over your emotions, thoughts and reactions. ▪️When people say mean things to you or treat you like shit, always remember: THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU! Their inability to handle their emotions is not your fault. Try to be kind and patient and if you can, help them with whatever their struggle is. Because you know how helpless one is feeling when their emotions take over, right? ___________________________________________________________ #highvibrations #positivemindset #controlyouremotions #controlyourself #projection #reflection #copingskills #copingwithdifficulties #copingwithanxiety #copingwithgrief #copingwithdepression Смотреть полностью

During the weekend, I was contacted by an older friend whose neighbour had just died, leaving behind a four year old little girl 😢😢 ✨ My friend wanted a copy of my book - Letters of Hope Encouragement for the Bereaved Child. ✨ I explained that my book was for slightly older children - primary school aged children. ✨ This book ‘Never too young to grieve’ by @winstonswish is just ideal for the little girl. ✨ It is designed for parents, carers, childcare professionals and other adults supporting children up to the age of 5 who have experienced the death of a parent or carer. It offers information and ideas as well as some activities which will benefit children and their families. ✨ If you’d like more info about this book, please click link in bio. ✨ There are other age appropriate resources available, please DM or 📧 hello@lettersofhope.org.uk with your requests. ✨ Have an amazing week 😊 ✨ #childhoodbereavement #copingwithgrief #bereavementsupport #griefsupport #whensomeonespecialdies #winstonswish #nevertooyoungtogrieve #hopeafterloss #lettersofhope Смотреть полностью

I miss having someone to laugh at a silly movie with, to share the best and worst part of my day, and to help me with directions when I am lost. I miss everything about sharing my life with someone. It's been five years since the death of my husband, and I finally realize that I don't want to be alone. I finally accepted an invitation to go on a group outing, not ready to call it a date. We went to dinner and a Live concert. It was fun, but I struggled a lot throughout the evening. I even had friends help me get ready. The guy was patient amd understanding throughout the evening. He asked me out on another date.
