This excerpt from a book speaks to me:
“The grief within me has its own heartbeat.
It has its own life, its own song.
Part of me wants to resist the rhythms of my grief,
Yet as I surrender to the song, I learn to
Listen deep within myself.
Let the life of this journey be just what it is –
confusing, complicated, at times overwhelming.
I must keep opening and changing through it all until I
become the unique person who has transcended
the pain and discovered self-compassion –
a vulnerable yet grounded me who
chooses to live again.”
