Affirmation ~ Grief

Christmas with the Gang at Disneyland ~ 2009

Christmas is almost here and I miss Billy so desperately. My heart ready to break, the ache so much in the forefront of my life. I'm trying to be brave, strong and everything I know he knows is in me. He always saw the best in me and made me want to be a better person. It sounds so corny but so true.

I found an Affirmation and I keep it to encourage me and help me on this difficult journey I must now travel.
I remind myself to read it each day ~
I feel a simple calm inside at times so it tells me its ok to cry and to feel. It makes me believe ~

This burden on my heart is too heavy to hold.
I allow my spirit to grieve the loss of this dream.
I allow my tears to cleanse me, freeing me from these crippling emotions.
I release my expectations of the future and embrace the gifts this challenge has given me.

Always, 1 step, 1 breath at a time ~

Facing grief

Let me show my ignorance admitting that I do not know what a affirmation is. However I did find it comforting, going through this past blue week since the anniversary of my loves death on the 6th of Dec (09)

We search for relief from this grief and any written words of inspiration that nudges us along or expresses these feelings carved into our heart is much appreciated.

I wish you little pieces of joy mixed in with the sorrow making the days bearable. Until then one breath one day at a time.

Remember this is not about acceptance it is about adjusting to a life not your choice
It hurts so bad right now I can hardly breathe.

So that is what I am doing, one step one breath
One day at a time

Come here as you need to
We hear you
We understand

Affirmation - Grief
by: Jules

Patricia - I can see why you love that affirmation, it really says what we all must do - hold on but let go at the same time, It is my darlings birthday today - he would have been 62 - each anniversary or event brings fresh pain, but having dealt with it, I feel refreshed.

So - one step, one breath

take care - enjoy what you have
