Days like today.
Oddly enough, Cole is the one who talked me thru it. He spoke about lighting the fire and finding that inner strength to keep it burning. ❤
Some days it's super baby steps 👣

I miss my mama so damn much today. I’d give just about anything to sit and talk with her and get my bootie kicked at Scrabble. And to have her love and advice. 💖 #mom #momsarethebest #griefsucks #someoneelsecomecleanmyhouse

Last week I asked what you wished people understood about grief and the overwhelming response was: That it never goes away.
.
This coming week will be 34 years since my mom was killed yet I still have days that knock the wind out of me. That’s why I always say there’s no timeline when it comes to grief and based on the answers given, obviously that’s been your experience too.

Grateful for a good friend who knows and understand my obsession with #georgetowncupcakes and brings them in my time of need! #griefsucks #cupcakesaretheanswer #myfavorite #missmydaddy 💔

Tiny little reminders all over my house that I am loved, even when life hurts and it’s rough going, even when it’s summer and it’s cray, little gifts of love from my littlest remind me that even when my heart hurts and I feel like I’m choking on grief that there is always always something to be grateful for 😭❤️

This is a very real post on what my life looks like reguarding physical manifestations of grief. This is the hair from this morning's shower, it was the same after yesterday's shower. It's been this way since my J passed away. I'm aware everyone sheds hair daily, but I've never lost so much at one time, day after day...and not pictured, is all the hair collected in the catch I put over the drain. Grief is not pretty. I've gained weight, my hair is falling out, this is my reality now.

Today I’ve lived just as long without my dad as the amount of time I lived with him. 17 years ago he lost his battle with Cancer. I was 17. It’s so crazy for me to think that my siblings all passed this milestone years ago. As the first born I had extra time with him and I’ll always be so grateful for that. It took me a long time to process my grief, years before I could openly talk about him. Now I like to remember things he said and did that shaped my character and impacted who I am today. He believed wholeheartedly in loving other people well. He didn’t ever meet a stranger and was up for an adventure at a moments notice. One of his favorite things to say (and act upon) was “Give me a plane ticket and then tell me where I’m going.” Even in the last months of his life he spent time in Honduras and China, tying up lose ends in some of the medical clinics and schools he had spent years building. We never knew he was in pain or that the chemo was as brutal as it must have been because he didn’t ever complain. He remained positive, hopeful and grateful through it all. He traveled to conferences and spoke about what it was like to be a young physician with a terminal illness. He wanted to encourage other people up until his last day on earth, and that’s exactly what he did. I remember he’d often say, “Liza, you alone are responsible for your attitude so make it a good one.” He expected us to always do our best, to always show compassion for others and to never give up. What I’ve learned over the last 17 years is that time is a currency you will never get back. It’s precious and how you spend it matters. When you love someone, say it. Take risks. Strive to always leave the people you care about feeling good about themselves. I’m in no way a master of these things but I’m learning. I’m striving. I’m using my dad as an example for the life I want to live. On his tombstone it says, “so much in so little time.” His life was cut short but he left a strong legacy behind and I’m just so glad I got to be his daughter.

“This is one of the few photos I have of Justin, my husband, with both of our children (that wasn't taken in the hospital). I cherish the memories of Justin with our baby, who was born a short 6 months before Justin passed away. Justin was a wonderful father; he was so looking forward to spending extra ''guy time" with Hendrix, our 6-year-old, once Jagger was born. Seeing my 3 guys together reminds me to slow down and enjoy my sons; the housework isn't going anywhere, and time spent together is well worth a dusty living room :) Justin was always good about making time for adventures, and I aim to keep that spark alive.” —

Although some days may be full of hardship and sadness, each breath, heartbeat... ⠀

Even though the darkest moments, if we try and see the light, the universe will lead us out of darkness.😌💕⠀

Guys!! This has been messing me about loads today. But finally, here's the check in vlog that I recorded on travelling. And the anxiety that comes with it. It's all totally normal, travelling brings you out of your comfort zone and into the unknown, which can be pretty scary! Anyway, hope it helps ya out. Enjoy 2 mins of me rambling. Rest is on Facebook as usual.. later dudes!

This quote appeared as my Facebook memory that I posted on this day back in 2012. Little did I know back then just how much this quote would mean to me today. I understand it now. That’s probably why most of my days look like picture #2. Always surrounded by dogs and love.

How to prepare for two hours of dance rehearsals when you’re not feeling it. Bright booty shorts, best capezio stockings, sparkly glitter shoes, fave @vavoomroomnq top and beyond blue pin.
