I would love to know what you think, as I’m hoping to write a post giving all the advice I have collected over our various platforms!
I am passionate about grief education because there was a time in my life where I sat down in a counsellor’s chair and said “what is grief?”
I’m made up for my little sister and best friend. So proud of how she has overcome every challenge thrown at her and still able to find the positive in every situation.
Remember how Mum would always say to break things down, and to not look at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is scary, and so is a year. 365 days seems inconceivable right now, but you can manage one day at a time. Stay in bed if you have to. You don’t have to leave the house, you just have to get through another day.
I’m a hoarder of moments, desperate to find gold in paper,
Something that I had missed before, like an echoing smile.
I walk in my loving, sweet Danse Macabre,
My fruitless attempt to make “treasure” worthwhile.
You were always there to tell me how proud you were and to tell me to never give up. I didn’t. I didn’t give up because you never gave up. You taught me to never give up, and we didn’t, did we?
That’s one of the most difficult things about losing my mum, I just want to tell her how difficult life is without her in it.
More than anything though, we hope you are keeping safe and that you are in good health. Be kind to yourself during this period and always.
For many of us, we live in hope because those who have lost someone still can’t comprehend it.
