Be kind to yourself. Sleep in if you need to and listen to your inner voice because you are the one who knows best how to take care of yourself. Curl up in your fuzzy robe and just relax. Take a deep breath of fresh air and enjoy a walk through a park.
Give yourself permission to step back from the world and recoup. Take time to stop and weep, stop and enjoy a memory and naturally heal as you move forward.
We don’t all move through the stages of grief in any predictable manner. Grief does not fit into a nice neat package. I’ve learned that we can move forward and then discover ourselves going back a few steps and that is ok.
That is our reality and I am privileged to know women that have travelled this journey before me. They teach me by just watching the richness they have made in their lives with new friends and hobbies. I thank them for sharing their insights with me and in turn helping me on my own journey.
