As strange as some of these emotions may seem, they are normal and healthy. Allow yourself to learn from these feelings. And don't be surprised if out of nowhere, you suddenly experience surges of grief even at the most unexpected times. These grief attacks can be frightening and leave you feeling overwhelmed. #funeralhome #dealingwithgrief #grieving #losingalovedone #grief #griefprocess #grievers

I have a thing for light....this scene after my shower at this wonderful cute bed and breakfast caught my eye :) I miss the sun in these dark winter days and I just want to soak all the light I can. I love you ❤️ #ayearinlifewithoutyou #25 #quarterofacentury #halfyourage #tryingtoheal #aphotoaday #fujifilminstax #photographyforhealing #dealingwithgrief #moments #light #naturallight #unmadebeds
Back in New Orleans Momma. I always wanted to bring you here :) It’s a reunion for my Santa fe workshop crew and it’s so nice being in the big easy with wonderful friends. I missed the food 💛 #ayearinlifewithoutyou #25 #quarterofacentury #halfyourage #tryingtoheal #aphotoaday #fujifilminstax #photographyforhealing #dealingwithgrief #bigeasy #photonola #neworleans #lovelyfriends #fancyparties #hereforwork
A week ago today, a girl I knew in Nashville passed away. Everyday since I found out, I have thought differently & seen people differently. I have learned that a person can have all the dreams in the world, have everything going for them, & their life can still get taken away. Life is full of joy, and great times, but also full of pain & heartbreak. The only comfort there is, is knowing that this world is not our final destination. Everyone is going through something. Everyone has pain in their lives. But we HAVE to reach out to others & lean on community. 💕 Romans 12
For those we love & miss at Christmas, & every other time of the year. ✨🌙 #grief quote #poetry #Christmas #loss #dealingwithgrief #loveliestlittlethingsillustration
As many of you know, the past couple of months have been very difficult for me. This week, I came home for the first time in 7 weeks. It is great to be home, but it feels so weird. I had forgotten where things go! Emotionally it is very difficult to be home. As soon as we started driving away from my parents’ house, I broke down. It is so strange to realize how the world keeps turning even though it feels like my world is standing still. This morning I taught my first 2 classes as I try and get back to ‘normal’. It’s going to be a slow process to get back to real life. There are many reasons you may have had to step away from your regular daily programming, here are some tips on getting back to life ... read more <> ... #dealingwithgrief #positivevibes #reallifefacts #worklifebalance #selfcaretips
Expect to feel a multitude of emotions. Experiencing a loss affects your head, heart and spirit. So you may experience a variety of emotions as part of your grief work. Confusion, disorganization, fear, guilt, relief or explosive emotions are just a few you may feel. Sometimes these emotions will follow each other within a short period of time, or they may occur simultaneiously. #funeralhome #grieving #losingalovedone #dealingwithgrief #griefprocess #grievers #grief
On top of it just being “that time of year” I have a lot of personal things going on right now (if that’s you too, please let me know, I’d love to pray for you❤️). I’m never one to tell you that my life is perfect and I have it all figured out; that’s honestly so far from the truth.😅 I want to be real with you and share how I’m dealing with everything, in hopes to encourage you💗 ————— When life gets like this, all I want to do is curl up in my bed with a fuzzy blanket and eat every carb in the house. A year ago this is exactly what I would’ve done. Instead, I got up, went downstairs, and ate a good breakfast while I did my daily devotions. Then I listed to some personal development (Tony Robbins podcast) while I drank my liquid gold and wrote down what I’m thankful for, my prayers, and my limiting beliefs (crossed them out, and rewrote them as affirmations). After that I got up, walked over to my living room, opened up my laptop and got my workout in. I released SO much stress in that 30 minutes, I felt on top of the world. I took a sweaty selfie and logged my workout in my bootcamp, shared what I am going through, and thanked them for motivating/supporting me everyday.👯‍♀️ ————— While I was making my post workout meal the adrenaline died down and I felt the overwhelm kick in. This is normally where I would go straight to the pantry, but I didn’t. I reached out to one of my bestfriends and asked if I could lean on her. We FaceTimed, I let it all out, I cried (yeah girl, it’s okay to cry), and felt a lot better. It still hurts, it still sucks, but I feel better. I didn’t stop there. I went into my team page and talked to all of my coaches about what I am going through, because we are a family and that’s what families are for. I encouraged them to show up for themselves regardless of what life is throwing at them. I know that in the long run, I will grow through this time if I show up for my health and happiness and never give up on my passion.
I’m starting to take more lunch breaks and go out to the petroglyphs, listen to music and tune out for a few minutes. Take a break from the real world. Play with my new instax, figure out all its quirks :) #ayearinlifewithoutyou #25 #quarterofacentury #halfyourage #tryingtoheal #aphotoaday #fujifilminstax #photographyforhealing #dealingwithgrief #fujifilminstaxsquare #fujifilminstaxsq6 #doubleexposure #square #instax #thepetroglyphs
Thank you 🙏 to my dear friend Aarti Jaganmatri who took the time out of her day to come and help my students deal with the grief surrounding a classmate being murdered. Aarti has such a beautiful spirit that always seems to know what to to say to others to help them heal.

So ready to be back at @Salty Turtle beer again tonight for run club!! It has been a very stressful/emotional few days, and a run followed by great company for a beer 🍻 is exactly what I need next. Well...that, and of course my natural supplements that are designed to relieve feelings of anxiety and sadness. ☺️ It takes all the tools, especially when life throws you a curve ball. . Healthful foods, exercise, rest, and supplements will help keep you on an even keel, no matter what is going on around you. I’m so grateful for a healthier way to manage emotions. . God has blessed me tremendously. Take time today to look for the blessings in your life and appreciate them. ❤️ And if you’re stressed, go for a run!😘🏃🏼‍♀️ . . . . #saltyturtlebeercompany #topsailarearunningclub #stressrelief
So I kind of drink coffee now Mom....I know, I know. I blame Aunt Linda and Alfred for it :) and I now have these lovely 30 min morning drives to work in the sunlight. When I have time, I stop at this gas station in the morning to get a cup a coffee. A new thing, a new routine, new habits and changes. Santa Fe really has taught me to love the sun, this dark winter is really getting to me. These sun filled drives are getting me through, allowing me to soak up the rays and rest in my thoughts each morning before dealing with the real world. #ayearinlifewithoutyou #25 #quarterofacentury #halfyourage #tryingtoheal #aphotoaday #fujifilminstax #photographyforhealing #dealingwithgrief #sunlight #morningdrives #coffeestop #morningcommutes #ineedsunlighttofunction

I haven't really known how to move forward with my Instagram, especially since I ended up stopping those drawings so soon... At first it was because it was so hard, or I should say I was having a hard time coping. Then work got really busy and I started pretty much just sleeping and working. I'm still here though, still trying to move forward one day at a time. I'm going to try to resume regular posts on here though. #grievingishard #grieving #workinghard #postalworker #eatsleepwork #depression #dealingwithanxiety #dealingwithgrief #dealingwithdepression #tryingtomoveforward
On the 19th November 2018 my beautiful cat Gustavo passed away. I haven't mentioned it on here yet because truthfully it's been difficult to come to terms with. If you follow me/have me as a friend on FB then you obviously know he was a massive part of my life and I am so terribly sad about it. I wrote a blog post about dealing with the grief of losing a pet today and the link is in my profile description. Love you forever sweetheart. ♥
Grief ... with a side of cookies? . . We all deal with grief differently, in our own private ways. Sometimes we don't even realize it is grief we are dealing with. . Let me go back... I love to bake in the wintertime - especially around the holidays. I also have a severe sugar addiction!! I eat one cookie, I'm going to eat 12. You can bank on that. I give away all that I bake to friends, family, bartenders, servers, neighbors, etc. . Two years ago when my dad died in November, I had the expected crying and sadness and reminiscing and laughter through tears in remembering him. I also BAKED. . I didn't realize it at the time, but I grieved through my baking. It gave me something productive and enjoyable to focus on. When I gave away my treats, it made others happy, which, in turn, made me happy. I made 12 double batches of all kinds of cookies and another 4 different kinds of breads - also double batched! My husband had to tell me to "Stop baking already!" My office was FULL of baked goods! . I was a driven woman that year and I wasn't sure why. In retrospect, I made the connection. . I still miss my dad (does that ever go away?) and I still bake when it's cold outside. In fact, I'm starting a batch of chocolate chips cookies after I write this post. Now when I bake in December, I think about my Dad and smile. . Have you grieved in an unusual way? I'd love to hear your story. . . .
This is Leo, my first dog without you. You would adore him. He gives the absolute best hugs in the world.

Happy Birthday me. I was born at 9:29 am 12/5/1993. My first birthday without you. I miss you.

I keep all the Xmas cards we receive and then I decorate with them every year. I usually reread some. This can be sad since some cards are from people no longer with us, but I'm still glad we have them. . . . . . #holidaycards #christmas #christmasdecor #merrychristmas #happyholidays #dealingwithgrief #death #xmas #xmascards #christmascard #cardart #holidayart #decorations
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations ✨ . . . #Repost @xoxo_dilsia ・・・ Grief never ends...but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay.

As a result of these factors, you will grieve in your own special way. Don't try to compare your experience with that of other people or adopt assumptions about just how long your grief should last. Consider taking a "one-day-at-a-time" approach that allows you to grieve at your own pace. #funeralhome #grieving #grief #griefprocess #losingalovedone #dealingwithgrief
BLOG POST ALERT. As you probably know, I have a blog, and it's pretty much exclusively related to traveling. Well, I decided to go off-script and do a new type of blog post, just this once. Click on the link in my profile to read my blog post entitled: "How to talk to a friend who is grieving.” 📷 This is outside the norm for me, but it's something I've been wanting to write ever since my dad had his stroke back in October. These past few months have been the first time in my life I've ever really had to deal with grief, so I thought I'd share my own lessons learned, and my hope is that maybe someone out there will find it useful. 📷 I've also given a summary/update of Dad's recovery progress at the end of the post, so click in to check it out! 📷 This photo was one of the most recent family photo that we got before Dad's stroke - It's one of those things I didn't realize would be so important to me until now. So this Christmas, I hope you all make time to take tons of photos with your loved ones. Merry Christmas season, everyone!
I've had a lot of dark times in my life, just as everyone has. I have gone through times were my lungs were full of pressure and anxiety and I had to struggle for every breath. I have had times where all I could do was fall on my knees and pray to my God to grant me strength for one more day. I have had times where all I could do besides get out of bed, was lay motionless on the couch for hours on end. • When it comes to dark times, I have had my fair share. I've fought through the bad times with my OCD, breathed through the anxiety, and put on a brave face during the depressed days. • But there is something that has always kept me going. There is one thing that I can find a small escape and reprieve through. My hobbies have literally sustained me during the times where I wasn't sure if I could keep going. • I mentally started making a list of all the things that I loved doing. I then started to sort through what would take my mind off my issues and what didn't work as well. I had a lot of trial and error, a lot of fails and misses, and a lot of confusion. But in the end, I was able to make a clear decision on what worked and what didn't. • Over the years this list has changed a bit. Somethings don't work anymore, some work now, and some are not as efficient as they once were. But that's okay. The concept still remains the same! (Click on the link in my bio to read more)!

Never. . . . . The aftershocks from my life colliding with my husband’s life will always be the undercurrent of my existence. I had a nightmare about his passing a couple of nights ago, it’s been hanging over me. I’m missing him and I can’t believe this happened to us. . . And so the grief waves come again, as I know they always will periodically. . . . #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace
Day 6 #25daysofchristmasbooks and there ought to be no introductions on the incredible artist; @coraliebickfordsmith who has delighted so many bookworms in her artistic book covers. She is also a lovely friend, that I've grown to know. She's a very talented lady, whose recognition is much appreciated by people who buy her books that she designs. Christmas wouldn't really be Christmas without a lovely #clothboundclassic book. They make the perfect gift as does #thefoxandthestar which is a short and beautiful book that looks at overcoming grief which can be so hard for so many people, during the #festiveseason although it is set during Christmas, there is much to gain and enjoy from the art work that captures a moving message on loss, thoughtful and worth a read. As Someone who has grieved, finding it hard to celebrate Christmas because that person isn't there anymore, this book taught me how to accept my loss and still enjoy the #yuletide season. Life teaches you many things, to celebrate all the wonderful memories we had of our loved ones, to treasure beautiful books such as this one and hold it close to you, because somehow, a #fablestory can help with the healing process and enjoy life and all it's richness. It certainly has a Christmas feel to it. I brought this book two Christmases ago as it's a book I knew I would want to keep forever. I would love to include #thewormandthebird in the same #clothbound edition, making it the perfect companion to this little star. This is a book that will resonate with children as well as adults. It's a truly magical and snowy book that will melt your heart, about a fox and his friend named star. #25daysofchristmas #readingnook #adventcalendar #festivefun #christmasbooks @penguinrhuk #dealingwithgrief #childrensbooks #bookcover #femaleartist #bookstagram #bookshelves #tonischristmasbooks
I once had a Supervisor who made fun of me because I like Superheroes and Cartoon Characters, especially Wonder Woman. But she wore skeletoe shoes! While there is nothing wrong with skeletoe shoes, (they are Definitely UNIQUE and Different), I never felt the urge or need to criticize her preference in footwear. Little did she know that I LOVED to watch Wonder Woman with my Grandfather when he was living. It was one of my favorite things to do with him and watching Wonder Woman or even wearing Wonder Woman gear made me feel closer to him-as if he were still around. Plus, Wonder Woman to me represented the best parts of me as a person and who I wanted to be. The fact that my Grandfather liked her too made me adore her all the more! Watching and adoring Wonder Woman was something we shared together... I wonder if her ideas about what I like would have changed if she knew the backstory-why I liked Wonder Woman. Thank God that her approval isn't necessary! My point is that as long as something Feeds Your Spirit, That's All That Matters. Feeding your spirit in this harsh world is important. It keeps your spirit up and strengthens who you are as a person!

Snapshot of a day in my life now & what makes me happy: these doggy Christmas pajamas I got myself from @oldnavy !!They’re way too big, because I keep forgetting I’ve lost 60 pounds this year, but I love them so much I refuse to take them off to exchange them. These mean the world to me, because we always had a family tradition to get ourselves silly Xmas pj’s when my aunt (who raised me with my mom) was still alive, and it’s important to me to keep those traditions now with Wyatt. Denise would have loved these, and worn them out like she always did with the ones we got her every year. This holiday season has already started off pretty hard missing so many dearly departed loved ones, but I’m trying to cherish the little things like this & embrace those I still have as much as I can. Please excuse the messy/missing hair (life with a 1 yr old), no makeup, & cluttered kitchen this is just the season we are currently in within our lives & I’m embracing it. 8 hours in the kitchen cooking & cleaning Sunday, but it still always needs more work 🤷‍♀️ I literally snapped one shot & rolled with it, because I have no free time, but wanted to share. I’d love to hear your cherished family holiday traditions as we’re trying to start/come up with our own!
The loss of my grandmother in 2016 aches me as though I just heard my mother’s voice shake over the phone when she told me I need to go home. Every time I think about it my heart surges the exact same way it did two years ago. I wrote this with an included pause to control myself from crying whilst experiencing the above feelings once again . . Grief is probably one of the most synonymous feelings we share as human beings ; it tears us all apart. This is for all who have loved and lost , I sincerely hope that you will heal .

Realize your grief is unique. No one will grieve in the same way. Your experience will be influenced by a variety of factors, including, the relationship you had with the person who died, the circumstances surrounding the death, your emotional support system and your cultural and spiritual background. #funeralhome #grieving #dealingwithgrief #griefisunique #losingalovedone
Morning musings.... When newer roads come calling, and you are apprehensive to answer, because of certain unpleasant experiences from the past, just pause a little and collect those emotions that you are feeling, that heavy grief, the deep pain, all into one place, sit with it, let the tears fall, feel your breath…surrender to your stabbing hurt, howl as much as you want. Then fold each one of them neatly, mindfully, taking in the entire process…all the hurt, the anger, the disappointment, the sadness and pile them up into a neat stack. Get all the folds right, as if you were folding your favourite dress, shirt, whatever…take your time, get it done properly. Process all your emotions around each of these memories and then take them out and scatter them in the wilderness, let them blow with the wind…like sand… Now you are light and fresh, as good as new! Newer roads and newer dreams, you will hear and see them all, because your mind is not hammered by the pain of the past. Time to forge ahead! Respect life and honour your gifts! Life is a journey, life is service! Love and hugs!!! #dealingwithdepression #dealingwithgrief #mindfulness #mindfulliving #tonewbeginings #livingabetterlife #lifeisbeautiful
I came across this quote and it feels so right for today. With our journey I choose to fully embrace life - again - and be an example of resilience for Fleur. December is the hardest month for me, my mom should have turned 76 this year, Fleur will turn 3, Jeroen was murdered 3 years ago and my mom passed away on New Year’s Day this year. While I’m sitting here typing this out and drinking my latte Bob Marley is blurting out of the speakers ‘Everything’s gonna be alright’.... I have a feeling that Jeroen turned DJ just now😜 Credits where they are due @secondfirsts ! #griefquotes #griefjourney #griefsucks #lifeafterloss #dealingwithgrief #dealingwithloss #lovegoeson #loveandloss #decemberishard #newnormal #resilience #findingpeace #widowedmomtravel
Went for a run tonight on the trail I used to run on all the time in 2013/2014 ... I haven’t ran consistently in nearly 4 years! It felt good to be out on my old stomping ground. . . .

Cooking helps calm my nerves. Today has been tough. It’s mom’s birthday. She would have been just 63. Most of today has been foggy. I’m sure that the optometrist regretted she asked how I was. I’m not sorry I was honest. I’m learning to not apologize for my grief or make myself feel bad for feeling like shit. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through HANDS DOWN. And life’s given me some curveballs. I find myself crying silently, heaving with sorrow. And it’s ok. Grief is about love, and when love is loss - there is a giant gaping wound. It will heal like all do, however we never know how fast, or how well. And it’s ok. Surround yourself with the people you love, let them know how they can help you and ask how you can help them. It’s important to remember that spouses are grieving too 💜 Ok, now back to this delicious dish. Thank you @sunbasket for today’s lunch dish - vegan chili cheese tostadas with radishes and tomatoes. The vegan cheese is scrumptious. I need that recipe 😉 #dealingwithgrief #lostdaughter #cookingishealing #madewithlove #foodofinstagram #vegan
Because sometimes we just need to sit in a big comfy robe and just talk.... Beautiful Gems 💎 I had the hardest time putting up this video. I’ve literally been trying for 3 or 4 days to put this video up. I’m in my robe 👘 being very transparent and open. I hadn’t planned to start a robe chronicles or robe series. It just sorta happened early one morning when I couldn’t sleep 😴 and I just decided to cut the camera 📸 on and talk to you. Join me for this unscripted...

Kids with Grief 👩🏾‍🦲👨🏽‍🦲👨‍🦲👩🏿‍🦲 30/11/2018 #London #kidswithgrief #art #series1 #peopleofcolour #dealingwithgrief #runningintothefear
The day started with Fleur asking to look at some pictures of her and Papa, so - as quite often - we lay in bed and talked about the love we all shared. It’s certainly no easy start to the day, but I wouldn’t want to change it. When I dropped her off at nursery they told me that Fleur had been telling everyone that I’m her best friend and that she doesn’t have any other friends 😪. She’s also been saying that she does have a daddy but doesn’t know where he is 😪. Two loaded statements and my heart was breaking at that point! It’s incredibly confrontational to hear her articulate it so well, she is not even 3 year old. By now I have learnt to ‘deal’ and life with my pain and my grief, but am realising that her grief journey, even though it has started when she was only 11 days old, is becoming more and more expressive not only in her behaviour but also in what she says. I’ve also come to learn that she’s mirroring my behaviour, so by being strong and trying to keep a brave face what am I actually teaching her?? The pain of your child hurts much more than your own, and I would do anything to take it away but all I can do is guide her, be there for her and give her all my love. I have no idea if I’m doing the ‘right’ thing. Today I question myself, my parenting style, my choice to take her travelling around the world and I question how I’d like our future to look like. I’m aware that our grief is nothing ‘to get over’ but it will be a life long journey and the full impact might only hit Fleur when she starts a family of her own. I’m very much living in the present moment, but at times when I’m feeling overwhelmed, I’m floored with the responsibility I’ve been given... #griefjourney #griefsucks #griefwork #loveandloss #dealingwithloss #dealingwithgrief #love #loss #grief #griefandloss #griefawareness #sayhisname #childrensgrief #daddyinheaven #dadinheaven #childrensgriefawareness #newnormal #healingjourney #itsokaynottobeokay #findingpeace #widowed #widowedmom #widowedmomtravel #widowedandyoung #verdriet #jongeweduwe #rouw #rouwverwerking

Sometimes a person can become overwhelmed or bogged down in the grieving process. Someone who is having trouble beginning to actively re-engage in life should consider getting professional help. For example, if continual depression or physical symptoms, such as loss of appetite, inability to sleep or chronic lack of energy persist, it is probably time to see a mental health professional. #funeralhome #grieving #dealingwithgrief #lossofalovedone
Another section of my ocean of hearts. The project evoked In honor of the 200 Islanders that perished returning to the Isle of Lewis, in the first moments of the year in 1919. Twenty yards from the harbor wall. Devastating loss effecting every family on the island. These men had survived the 1st world war and perished within sight of the lights of the homes on the harbor wall. Serenaded by Iarla O Lionaird This is the island my father and family are from, and where my wild woolly heart roams. #iarlaolionaird #iolaire #oceanofhearts #floatinghearts #wirework #wirehearts #shadowwork #grief #dealingwithgrief #isleoflewis #stornaway #wildhearts

I’m sure we all know at least one person, or maybe you are that person, who has a hard time during the holidays due to losing someone dear. Joy is one that can help overcome some grief you or someone you love has during the holidays. I know one person I’m going to be gifting some Joy to this year. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #oilofjoy #holidays #christmas #mourning #joy #oilmom #momlife #momofmany #momof8 #helpsomeone #dealingwithgrief #momsofinstagram #oilofjoyformourning
NEW POST: link in bio - "The foundations that make me, me" I talk about the experience of losing my mum during my teen years and how my sister aided me through the journey which resulted in me having such a strong sense of self and a positive mental attitude. Putting in such bitter sweet memories truly helped me, reminding me of wonderful memories I have with my mum. It’s so important to remember life goes on after death, do not lose yourself after losing a loved one! The death of them shouldn’t be the death of you! Support is out there, whether it be friends/family, counselling or even messaging someone like me! Take the best parts of the person you’ve lost and incorporate them into yourself, allow them to live on through you. Allow any emotions you feel to be free. Do not put a time restraint or judge where you are based on others experiences, stay strong, take time to process everything and remember the good times and memories you had with that special person. #grief #love #loss #positivevibes #staypositive #hope #dealingwithgrief #positivethinking #powerofpositivity #boy #dogsofinstagram #advice #lifeadvice #helpingothers #help
