Balancing holding on and moving on after loss

I’ve thought about this a lot lately.

It’s been almost a year since my dad joined my mom in heaven, and she’s been there for 20 years as of this July 5th. I feel like I’d gotten into a good place with balancing the moving forward and holding on part. Of course, I still to this day catch myself wishing I could pick up the phone and call my mom. And then there are times I feel like I should be thinking about her more. This is the guilt part, nudging its way in when it really has no right to.

I think having my dad join my mom has thrown off this delicate balance a bit. Partly because he was my connection, the remaining piece of my foundation and my link to my mom. I still fully embrace life…and I hope that you do as well.

Because not only will this help you rediscover joy, it will truly help you honor the life or lives of your loved ones who are no longer physically here. I believe that they’re closer to us than we realize, and that they wrap us in their love and share in our journeys…just from a different vantage point. 💜💫🦋
