Year 2 has me feeling more lost than found, more aware of my detachment and intensely craving roots/grounding, and generally more questions than answers.... but maybe this is also just me approaching 30. Missing these two like crazy. #brutalhonesty #griefwork #year2

Co-facilitating grief workshops this weekend with @kemeticyogini has me feeling grateful for the challenge to take inventory again of my own emotional landscape, and to practice being with and sharing what I may have learned, and what others can teach me about death, relationship transitions, leaving/finding home. And I love consulting the maps my favorite writers have made of this collective terrain: "...we are connected to the Divine through our connections with each other. Yet, no one comes into consciousness alone, in isolation, only for herself, or passively...The fact of the matter is that there is no other work but the work of creating and re-creating ourselves within the context of community. Simply put, there is no other work. It took five hundred years, at least in this hemisphere, to solidify the division of things that belong together. But it need not take us another five hundred years to move ourselves out of this existential impasse." - M. Jacqui Alexander #griefwork #meandmyshadow #beyourownmedicine

My healing. #griefwork

I will lay my troubles down by the water. ✨

Dear Theodore Brave,
Son. Your mama and daddy love you fiercely. We are undone by all the miraculous things you can do. We are proud of you and deeply in love with who you are. You are our boy. We get to watch you grow up! Somedays, I still feel like you will be taken away from me. I lived with that fear and heaviness for so long with your sissy. It's hard to shake it. But then, I am reminded of the truth and your strength and the fact that you are free from SMA. I don't have to worry about you choking in bed at night or struggling to breath. So, I let you run free. You get bumps and bruises as you explore, but I know you will be fine.
Your sissy lived for 3 years in a body that was failing her. Every day of her life was a miracle! She was tough and brave and tender hearted. And oh. My boy. You are just the same.
You carry her with you. In your heart and veins and at the corners of your eyes when you smile. She taught us all to be brave. But Teddy...so did you. So did you, my miracle boy.

If you need a reminder of why you've got Monday off, visit your local national cemetery. These images are BY FAR the hardest and some of the most treasured photos I have. The entire day was a blur, but bits and piece are as crisp as if it was yesterday. Memorial Day is forever changed for me; a dark cloud looming over this weekend. I am eternally grateful for @tapsorg for making something positive out of this weekend for us. #americasfamily #griefwork #wemissyoujoe #memorialdayweekend2017

I have almost gotten through the first year after Millie's death. I am still adjusting but getting closer to integrating this new reality without her. Sometimes I feel a wave of sadness and think I can't believe I have to live the rest of my life without her. Other times I can just nod affectionately to my memories without feeling pulled apart by them. This picture was taken two years ago today. It's the picture my tattoo is based on. 🐶❤️🌈 #angelmillietzu #shihtzusofinstagram #oneeyeddog #memories #griefwork

Just one of those days Y'all .

No matter how much I wanted to just lay around today, this message encouraged me to get my workout in tonight.

Besides it's only 20 minutes of working on technique and stretching! And its #griefwork

Another #sneakpeek into "My Favorite Color is Blue. Sometimes." The trim size of the book is 8x8 - a perfect size for a gift - especially for someone who is grieving. It's #real, #honest and #inspiring.

Worden's fourth task. Being able to establish a lasting emotional connection with your loved one while continuing to live and find enjoyment in life. #lossgrief #healing #process #timelesscounseling #griefwork

Worden's third task: to adjust to an environment in which the deceased is missing. This happens over a period of time and may include internal, external, and even spiritual adjustments. #lossgrief #healing #process #timelesscounseling #griefwork

I'm loving @epicself's posts. Resonating on a soul level.
This meme is a tough one. The life work. The work that keeps going. The triggers we don't anticipate. The shadow self we aren't aware of, or how it operates through us... striving for attention, affection, approval-seeking, staying busy to avoid feelings of neglect and despair. Childhood residual somatic memories, unprocessed and looping in the nervous system...
At the same time, I fully believe that most parents who were faulty or made mistakes did the best they could... so, feelings your feelings, not reacting, while engaging a process of forgiveness turns out to be one of the best ways to love yourself...
I have to practice this weekly at least.
The work shifts, it evolves, it winds, it transcends, it resolves, it continues. #recovery #healing #reparenting #somaticpsychology #meditation #selflove #attachment #trauma #innerchild #thework #thepath #aca #acoa #griefwork #givingyourselftheloveyouneverreceived #reltionships #dating #partnerships #wholeness #interdependence

Another one of Worden's tasks, to work through the pain of grief. Acknowledging, talking about, and gaining an understanding of the many complex thoughts and emotions of grief is very essential to healing. #lossgrief #healing #process #timelesscounseling #griefwork

Today would have been our 8th year Anniversary! This day was not as difficult as I thought it would be.
.
.

I woke up at 3am, spent time with the Lord, prayed and was actually very hopeful for my future.
.
.

This day reminds me that the Lord did it for us at a time when we both thought finding LOVE was NEVER going to happen!

Oh, the journey of grief. It is work and takes a lot of energy, but you can make it through. #timelesscounseling #griefwork

Tonight I draw two cards! The message is to move your grief away! 😄 Get up and move literally if you can, keep your energy active. Grief sits on us and ways us down so don't be discouraged. Pace yourself accordingly. Ask your angels for support as always, they have your better interest. There are all kinds of physical activity that you can try. Don't limit yourself. 😉#readingoftheday #oraclecards #angels #guardianangels #spiritguides #energywork #griefwork #physicalactivity #lawofattraction #positivevibes

Give yourself permission to cry!!
.
.
If you have had trouble crying, you might need to give yourself permission to cry - to cry and cry and cry and cry - as much as you feel the urge. The more you cry and weep the more you will help yourself.
.
.

We urge you to cry as much as you need to - to simply cry and cry and cry and cry - as freely as a baby does. Put no restraint on your urge to cry. That's something you need to do - your system needs you to do that..... #griefwork #griefjourney #cry #experienceittothefull #griefandloss #griefawareness #widowlife #widows
