I’m not going to lie, it’s been a day. OK, it’s been a month. My Mum passed away exactly a month ago, and the grieving process has left me surprisingly tired. But beyond the fatigue, I’m honestly surprised by how the grief has heightened my gratitude for the life I have with my guys and for the incredible friends who have surrounded me with their love and support through this season.
The good news is, I’m starting to feel a bit more like myself and like maybe I can, for example, deal with sick kids all week and client projects and personal projects and not feel like I just want to crawl back under the covers. This, my friends, is a good sign, and I’ll take it.
I’m learning once again to be gentle with myself while also embracing my resilience and strength. I can handle more than I think, and I’m discovering I’m good at taking care of myself without crumbling in hard times. Seasons of loss or crisis are always a dangerous opportunity to choose well, don’t you find?
My favourite self-supportive habits over the last few weeks have been meditation and journaling and the occasional glass of red wine. Oh yes, and nebulized glutathione which is a total game changer for detox.
Thanks for being patient with me while I’ve gathered the strength to get back online, friends. I’m super grateful to all of you who have sent me messages and cards and flowers and love. I feel it all.
So what are your favourite ways to take care of yourself in a hard season? I want to know! 📷 by the amazing @
