I will make a little more time for comfort and sanctuary this season. I won’t try to figure it all out. I won’t be hard on myself if I don’t get the tree up. Maybe it’ll happen. Maybe it won’t. Either way, it’s okay. Christmas is always in my heart. I will embrace a day at a time. Enjoy the moments with family. Hugs. Smiles. Laughter. Tears. Breaking bread. Counting blessings. Looking forward to the new year.
It is often said that the journey of grief is different for everyone, and unique yet again to each loss we experience in our lives. I encourage those who are dealing with a loss of a loved one, regardless of relationship, person, or pet, that you take time for yourself to heal. Listen to your body. Rest it. Move it. Nourish it. Surround yourself with the support that is the healthiest for you . . .
We all have a story—many actually—which define and influence, sometimes greatly, how we perceive things and choose to live our lives. Learning about other people’s journeys lets us know that we’re not alone, whether it’s a blog, book, or biography we’re reading and/or engaging in a great conversation. In some ways, it even helps us to heal when healing is needed. It teaches us more compassion, and help us to grow.
I work daily with author and coaching clients, and the fundamentals of success remain the same in many ways. Here, I’ve included a few excerpts from each of my Process to Prosperity Series’ posts (Staying Power, Daily Disciplines, and Recalibrate), so you can read all three or pick the one that resonate most for where you’re at. Enjoy.
