The holidays can be a very difficult time for so many who are grieving loss, loneliness, depression etc. I know for me, that losing my Dad on Christmas Eve now leaves a weight on my heart on that day, a heaviness that stays with me through the holidays as I wish my Mom and Dad were here with me. Although hard, I also need to focus on being present and there for my earthbound family and friends who love and care for me. You are still here to build good memories and a good life, to love, to grow, to learn. You are loved and you all MATTER. Wishing you all a very blessed holiday season and you are not alone I love you all!! XOXO #survivinggrief #loveforall #grief

One thing I’m noticing about this season in my life is that each day is so long. Eleven days until Christmas feels like forever. Like, Christmas will seriously never get here, y’all. While Jamie and I are getting slightly better with every passing day, that typical Holiday Joy is far away. I’ve started embracing gratitude and finding the tiniest things to be grateful for. I started with the basics- thank you cards. But none of the cards I found really said what I wanted to say. So I began making little cards that truly express how I feel. I’m not going to shovel my feelings and emotions under a rug. I’m not here to hide who I am or what I’m going through. If you can relate- expect to find these little guys (and more) in an Etsy shop soon. I think it’s time we show how we’re really feeling and not hide those emotions. Embrace each season in your life and really feel what you need to. Life is too short to hide who you are and what you’re going through. Everybody has something they’re dealing with.

As I drive through our communities, I see decorations for the holidays everywhere. Hanukah or Kwanzaa candles, Christmas bows, garlands, and lights everywhere often make me smile, but just as often it makes me pause. I pause to think about the fact that this may be the first set of holidays for many of us who have lost a partner, a best friend, or a child. I think about the loved ones who we can’t call any longer, and a house being less full because someone has passed on.⠀ .⠀ This grief is a very REAL thing for many people. Check out the rest of Steve Knight's blog post on our website for tips to dealing with the weight of holiday grief.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #wholehealthbluffton #rosemaryclarkempowers #holisitchealth #blufftonSC #selfcare #wellness #healing #essentialoils #selfcare #naturalhealth #naturalwellness #healing #introductions #whoweare #counseling #therapy #restoration #renewal #holidays #christmas #grief #sadness #coping

Whether a week, a month,a year or a decade - grief wears many masks. Sad, lonely, hopeless, fearful, angry, rage, numb, happy ... At a ten year milestone today it feels very surreal. I feel happy and joyful rather than sad. I can only conjure up the good memories that make me laugh. I can’t remember the last time I cried or ached over “the hole.” I feel the urge to make my Sunday ritual calls now and again, as if he’s still here. When my Mother visited recently for a split second I expected Dad to be by her side. Grief has a way of toying with your memory. The phantom thoughts and feelings from the basement of your heart hurt the most. But grief is different for everyone, it has no timeline or outline or definition. It begins somewhere, it hurts and will be your lifelong companion. Some are very private about it. Some are open and vocal. Some deny the pain for fear of dancing in unfamiliar emotional space, and they push the feeling down. But much like a cork bobbing around in water, you can only hold it down for so long ... eventually it will rise to the surface and there it will be -undeniably right beside you. I’ve found that a life well- lived with fewer regrets seems to transition to a more connected grief process after loss. It’s not that any one is better than another - but living a life where all the words of love are spoken rather than kept inside; all the unsettled discontentments of childhood are resolved rather than buried; all the hurts and pains of the past are forgiven rather than harbored contributes to a full heart and segwey to beautiful memories. 💜 “Live with no excuses, love with no regrets.” Life is a collection of memories. 💜For my Dad who had an unmatched zeal for life. 🍃DM for grief coaching fullfocuslifecoach *first session comp’d🍃 #fullfocuslifecoach #fullfocus #freecoaching #familiesfirst #futurefocused #lifecoach #lifecoachaz #lifecoaching #lifecoachshelli #lifestyleblogger #lifeisbeautiful #lifequotes #life #grief #griefcoach #griefcounseling #starttoday #startnow #selftalk #selfhelp #selflove #selfesteem #selfcare #positivevibes #positivethinking #mindfulness #depression #depressed #hopeless #hopeful

When you're having a tough week trying to sort out Xmas after the death of a loved one, and your mind is on overdrive, it's the little things that bring a tear to the eye, little things like a Xmas card from a dear friend as if he knew you needed the metaphorical hand on the shoulder. Can't wait to have you back adamspringle Love you. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #Xmas #xmascard #friendsforlife #sjsv #anxiety #grief #love #family #christmascheer #christmaslove

What is one gift you can't wait to give to someone this year?

Ever feel “emotionally hung over”? Yep, right here — complete with oversize sunnies to hide the bags...or baggage (ok fine, it’s both). Some days life’s a breeze, and others it hits you square in the face. Suckerpunched with no warning. || I remember my Mom sharing a particular John Piper word on grief with me after my Dad’s passing: “Occasionally, weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the losses. Then wash your face. Trust God. And embrace the life you have.” || I try to put on a smile most days, mostly because it’s easier than continually acknowledging the pain of a future I didn’t ask for, and secondly to preserve as much normalcy as I can for my kids. But playing “happy” can really wipe you out. So I will push myself to actually grieve today, take a deep breath and get back up, put on a pair of amazing tassel earrings, and attempt a really good cateye.

We are in Arizona 20 miles east of Phoenix. The campground is lovely. We are surrounded by mountains. Because our days are short we get to experience the sunrise and sunset each day. The colors are incredible. Reds, orange pinks and so many shades of blue. The sky fills with stars shortly after the sunset. It doesn't feel like Dec but when "the day" is here, I will feel it on a cellular level. There will be tears and sorrow and for me that's how it should be. We've decided to stay here through December as the weather is nice. Highs between 70's and 60's with lows in the 40's. Sun every day so far. Trails right off the campground. We are resting from all the travel. During this season, I hope you are pausing and caring for yourselves. Life is too short to rush around. 💜 .. .. #allforethan #liveanadventerouslife #vanlife #rvlife #sunrise #sunset #sorrow #grief

Holiday Grief Tip #13: Plan Ahead. ++++ Why: The Holiday season can be filled with events and get- togethers. Office parties. Family dinners. Holiday lunches with friends. When you are grieving, you may not remember what activities are heading your way until you get the call you missed it. Using a calendar can help you to plan in advance for the things you want to attend and those things that are okay to politely skip. You may decide to only plan one day at a time to see how you are doing before committing to anything. You may even decide to block off your entire calendar this Holiday season. Both are perfectly fine to do. There are no rules. ++++ Watch Our Free Webinar: https://goo.gl/4VU5rr ++++ #griefreiki #holidays #holidaytip #griefquotes #holidaze
