I get asked a lot, "How are you doing it?" I can never answer the how part because the "how" is impossible to answer without the "WHY." #whypower
When my mom decided to stop cancer treatment and the doctor gave her 1-3 months to live, I knew it was time for me to seek therapy to learn how to grieve. I had lost my brother 7 years ago and I swept my feelings under the rug only for them to explode and wreak havoc in my life a few years later. I wasn't going to do that to my family again. #feelingitsucks
During my sessions, I learned the importance of taking care of myself first and THEN everyone else. Oxygen mask on me first, right? I had to learn how to live a life with activities that did not revolve around my mom's care. I did the work and I continue to DO the work. The grieving process is not an easy one.
So, the correct question is, "Why are you doing it?" Answer: I do it not only for my health and well being, but I do it (and share it all!) to show other ladies that being number one on the priority list regardless of the chaos in their life CAN (and MUST!) BE DONE! •
If I can inspire just ONE woman to EMBRACE where she is, make herself a priority again, to take charge of her health and be her best self, then I have done my job. With each woman I help begin, I know the pain and devastation of losing my mom isn't in vain. •
