For years now I’ve wanted to help others who have suffered considerable childhood trauma....... I had even discussed this with one of my early childhood teachers at Tafe.... we had coffee, nutted some ideas down..... but as I always do..... it was too hard so I changed my mind. Embarrassed & scared of what some might say towards my cause...... Today I attempt to begin to try..... in my quest of self discovery & becoming a better person as I nudge closer to that 40 mark..... I’m going to create a Blog & write it all down.... in the hope I may just help someone else living with the very same demons I am..... Watch this space....... #selfcare #selfdiscovery #helpmehelpyou #learningtolovemyself #dealingwithgrief #ptsdrecovery
Last night, I finally had a lucid dream about you In my dream, you assured me everything is ok... It was time and there’s nothing I could do to stop that. I woke up , smiled and said Thank you. It’s not going to take the sadness away but it did make me feel relieved.. that finally, I can feel.. you are in a better place. #dealingwithgrief #copingwithloss #difmc #dream #loss #aedieV2 #grievingprocess #griefsupport #stagesofgrief #antiquebed

Last year when Mom was admitted to Duke Hospital, I started posting using the hashtag #bravegirl and #staystrong when one day typing that a suggestion for #girlbebrave popped up and I instantly felt that. Girl.. Be brave. It hit all I was trying to say to myself to get me through. Well little did I know that it was a brand hashtag. I received a message from a sweet lady reaching out to me with her story.. I told her my moms in return. She sent a wonderful package that helped make hospital life much easier. And since then I have used #girlbebrave as a motto for all that life has thrown at me. After mom passed, I received a message from the same lady reaching out again and she sent this. Looks like nothing to some people, but in the course of a year I went from dreading sleeping in the hospital by my moms side to not having her by my side at all. And now #girlbebrave isn’t just a hashtag I use .. it’s what I have to say everyday to make my life even worth living without my mom. It’s hard y’all... I can’t even begin to explain it. 💕 #dealingwithgrief #girlbebrave #lifeisntthesamewithouther #thankyou
Beautiful quote for a cozy Saturday evening 💕 . . . I love the idea of finding things in this life that bring you happiness and joy, and removing things that don’t. It took me some time to rediscover myself after loss, and I’d be lying if I said the discovery process was complete. Im still learning how to be true to myself, in all circumstances, and to let joy in. . . . #selflove #selfcare #strengthinvulnerability #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #travel #traveltheworld #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #adventure #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace
Like the sound of the wind, I hear you, calling to my soul. Mummy misses you always. 🦋 . . Many years ago a grieving soul placed a wind chime on this tree - located at Springvale cemetery in the Children’s garden. I have since added my own after loosing my daughter . The sound is heavenly and so spiritual. I never forget that your body may be long gone, but your spirit , for ever remains. In my heart , my mind and today my ears . 🔱 #windchimes #visiting #mystic #cemetery #ihearyou #ifeelyou #imhere #angels #closetoyou #dealingwithgrief #angelbaby #butterfly #butterflychildren #soundsofthewind #wind #trees #treesofinstagram #depressionquotes

R O S E Q U A R T Z 💗 A bit of self care and healing for me today, it’s so important to have these days especially when you run your own business mixed with everything else that life throws at you. Even if it’s not a whole day, just an hour or so, which always seems to be the way for me. I really treasure this blend, it’s very comforting and helps me to see life as a joyful journey. And I understand the universe is very kind and loving and that no matter what is unfolding for us in life we are safe and loved. “Love flows towards me from every direction. I relax into peace.” #auraspray #rosequartz #crystalinfused #crystalenergy #chakraspray #chakraoils #chakrabalancing #heartchakra #heartchakrahealing #aromatherapyspray #roomspray #holistichealing #roseoil #healyourheart #dealingwithloss #dealingwithgrief #selfcare #affirmations #positivevibes #positivethinking #emotionaldistress #aurasprays #aura #zephoriumsoultonic
A little #ThrowBackThursday with my friend Rosie! . People turn to food for many reasons, and Rosie was no different. A tragic loss lead her down a path to fill the void and avoid the pain of losing a child. . “Same girl, different seasons. After the loss of our first born daughter, Alicia, I was at my highest weight at 250 pounds. Not only did we lose our daughter but I needed an outlet to lose my unwanted weight. So I used fitness as my “drug” and leaned into exercise and proper nutrition to lose over 100 pounds. My tragic loss led to depression, hopelessness some days, but knew I needed to live on for my other remaining children. Finding true optimal health in all areas of my life has been a blessing. I realize 8 years into fitness/health that health is more than just physical. So in comes our amazing program! Paying it forward so that many lives moving forward can experience optimal health with us. This vehicle has helped us offer HOPE to others in all areas of life!” . Thank you Rosie for sharing your story! . #weightlosstransformation #optimalhealth #healthandwellness #dealingwithgrief #lossofachild #emotionaleating #fitness #healthymind #healthybody

Learning to be in the emotion and not distract from it. Knowing how hard that is when everything around us tells us to distract ourselves from the reality of what we are feeling or experiencing. We need to take the time to be still and listen, all the answers and healing are within. . . . . . #grief #dealingwithgrief #findingyourself #distraction #beingreal #real

One of my favorite poems: Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; . Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, . And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. . I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference . . #RobertFrost #poem #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #travel #traveltheworld #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #adventure #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace in #breckenridge
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taking a moment to take in my surroundings.. Serene rivers, high mountain peaks, indescribable sunrises and sunsets, skies painted with stars, people that make this place worth the good days.. With all the sadness and anger I’ve felt recently-It feels good to have some sort of silver lining. Even at rock bottom, appreciating the small things that give you even the smallest smile are worth it-I promise☝🏼✨🌱⠀

Congratulations to everyone for making it to the weekend 🙌🏼. I don’t know about you guys, but it’s been a good week.

I have been holding onto this video for a few months as I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share. Losing my mother to breast cancer was one of the hardest things I have ever gone through. I sat down to film this to hopefully help one person with grief. When I lost my mother it felt so lonely and painful. She was the only parent I had and had so much hope she would get better. Yesterday I finally finished editing the video after many tears and decided that I need to upload this for the purpose it was created. #breastcancer #losingmymother #youarenotalone #dealingwithgrief
"Journey," 8" X 8" oil on wood. This is the first thing I've painted since the unexpected death of my son 9 weeks ago. I painted it for myself without thoughts of "Does it need anything else? Does convey the feeling that I have?" It doesn't matter. It was inspired by vision I had the day after I found out about his death. #oilpainting #grief #death #artist #arttherapy #vision #hope #dealingwithgrief #loss #sadness

THIS 👆🏼👆🏼! . . . Have enough self love to acknowledge that you deserve better, even if you’re the one that needs to change to treat you better. . . . Change is really uncomfortable, in the midst of it all I feel super anxious at times, I didn’t like being aware of my issues - they call it “blissfully ignorant” for a reason. . . . My therapist said “change is so uncomfortable that people will only do it when staying the same is more uncomfortable” and that’s a high bar. After months of work, my anxiety is dwindling, I don’t feel different, but when I look back on how it was months ago the change is more apparent. I know I owe myself more, and while I was disappointed that treating myself right didn’t initially come easily, I’m trying to be proud that I recognized the problem and am working to fix it instead of being disappointed. . . . #strengthinvulnerability #selflove #selfcare #wellness #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #adventure #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace
This one can look however you want it to. This could be simply talking about that person. It could be a painting, a song, a blog post, a photograph... etc. I like to share about my loved ones as I'm reminded of something about them. And I share everything, even some of the not so awesome parts. I just believe that it's important to let other people share in some of your memories about your loved one. Letting someone else be a part of it can be really healing and healthy. And in the spirit of that I invite you to share with me about some ways YOU like to celebrate your lost loved ones! Because there are lots of ways. Do what you need to do for your own process!

Apparently yesterday was international cat day and I missed it 🙈😹😻 . It's been 5 months and it's still not easy without Mufasa. I think about him everyday. These cat days and pictures that pop up in memories are always the hardest days - I'm still not really used to posting pics of only one cat. Luckily Scar is the best cuddle buddy (see the photographic proof) and the sweetest kitty (most of the time 😹) and he's helped me through so many tough times 😻 . . . . . . . . #catsofinstagram #internationalcatday #furbabies #catladyprobs #catlady #catmom #catladylife #crazycatlady #mykidhaspaws #petsarefamily #fluffykitty #whorescuedwho #everydayiscaturday #kittycuddles #cuddlebuddies #kittylove #healingvibes #petlosshurts #dealingwithgrief #scarandmufasa
Sometimes I get so focused on how my feed looks, which outfit I have to post in, and how to get more engagement. It’s not a bad thing, I enjoy posting and sharing my life and style. But, it can get exhausting when you are a perfectionist like I am. Every little thing could be better, I could be better. It’s a constant battle between me, myself, and I. . . . It’s funny because when cooper was alive I never use to have these self-doubting thoughts. My focus was always on him and if he was okay. When he passed the focus turned from him, to me. I started thinking thoughts like “am I doing enough? am I living my life to the fullest because he didn’t get the opportunity too?” But it’s not about me living my life for him, it’s about me living my life for me. Which is honestly a hard concept to understand because I love putting my time and effort into other people. . . . In the process of grieving cooper I’ve experienced a lot of self doubt. I’m unsure how to grieve or if I’m even doing it right so I doubt myself. Although I believe everyone is a little lost when grieving, I know cooper wouldn’t want me doubting myself. He shows me signs everyday he is around and is proud of the woman I am becoming. . . . So if you are grieving someone, here is your reminder that it’s going to be okay. Where there is post traumatic stress, there also lies post traumatic growth. It just takes time for that growth to appear. So don’t give up, keep going and keep grieving in whatever ways you feel comfortable. . . . Also, slide to see one of my favorite pictures of my bubba. He may have been my little brother, but he towered over me. I miss him with all my being♥️ #graciousandgrateful

I want to share my experience with grief and exercise, because for me in the beginning the two went together like oil and water. Before my husband died, my life felt like a completed puzzle, everything I did: work, eat, exercise, therapy, shower, meetings, time with friends, reading books … they were all pieces of my life that fit together like a puzzle. When my husband died it was like a bomb went off and all the pieces of my life, now burnt and charred, no longer fit together. Putting more than one activity in a day seemed impossible, and it was frustrating. I remembered how I juggled so much before and now I couldn't even work more than 30 hours in a week, let alone do anything else. Weekly grief therapy was the first thing I added back into my schedule; but I also wanted to exercise. I thought "I feel bad emotionally and physically, and I'd like to only feel bad emotionally". Exercise at first was walking on a treadmill, crying, while listening to "Its Ok that you're not ok" by Megan Divine. Fast forward 4 months into my grief journey I became consistently angry, so kickboxing seemed like a good fit; however, I left the classes feeling more anxious and angry than when I walked in. By 5 months, I found yoga, and it was the perfect way to get my body moving again and after a few weeks, I was ready to move. By 6 months, I decided to try Orange Theory, and after one free class I fell in love with the workouts. I started going 3x a week and felt good about what I was doing. I was out of shape which meant 30+ "splat points" per class and this turned into a motivator. After 3 months of OTF, I bumped up my class load to 4x a week, I cut out yoga. I feel like I'm taking my body back from what grief did to it. My clothes are fitting again, I'm feeling better emotionally, and now I'm rarely hitting 12 splat points per class, a sign of fitness health and improvement. I get to walk into these rooms, chat with the coaches and feel a little bit of myself again. I love getting a little piece of my life back into my puzzle. Thank you @otfhighlands , and thank you Coach Katy for playing photographer 💜 #iLoveOTF #contest #fitness #grief #lifeafterloss #youngwidow #healing #love
This week is all about celebrating lost loved ones. If you can find a dream that you want to live out for your loved one, I encourage you to do it. Maybe your loved one wanted to travel to a particular place, or see a certain band in person, but never had the chance to. It could be really cool to go in their stead, as their proxy. *This one SHOULD NOT, I repeat SHOULD NOT, negatively affect your life in anyway! If living out a dream of a loved one puts you under any strain - physical, financial, emotional or otherwise DO NOT continue pursuing that thing.

|I a m B o l d| In solitude I’ve found my coping tool; I found time to time to pray, grieve, reflect and ruminate.; I’ve found peace and gathered strength to come out of compassionate leave and go back to work. I couldn’t sit in the house and watch the days, hours, minutes and seconds fly by, so I took my bike and went for a 50km random cycle #SwipeToTheLeft . It is said that when athletes raise their heart rate and sweat out the toxins. It’s how the body cries.

Everyone always told me that I have my father's eyes. Now that he's gone, I cherish this similarity, this inheritance from him. I like knowing that his DNA is preserved through me. I also remember that my Grandpa, a New Englander, LOVED blueberries, and maple syrup on his sausage links. These are some of my favorite foods, and something simple that I love to have in common with my sweet Grandpa. Today is the day to celebrate the things you have in common with your lost loved ones. Take a moment to remember these things.

Suggestion number 2 for how you can celebrate a loved one you’ve lost! I have a pair of pearl earrings from my Grandma that she got while visiting one of her favorite places on earth - Hawaii. I wore these earrings on my wedding day (which unfortunately my Grandma did not get to be a part of as she had already passed), but I also wear them whenever I feel like it or when I just think they look cute. For me, having some mementos, normalizes my loved one's presence in my life - just in a different way then they were with me before. Seeing or using items that belonged to them on a regular basis makes me feel like I have a bit of a tangible legacy from them. I do think it's important to mention that I also believe in having a healthy relationship with mementos. These symbols are important. Definitely. But it's also important to remember that these items are just items. And unfortunately you never know and can never control what will happen to your possessions.

I am different because my life is different. I had fantasized how my life was going to be with my husband, imperfect but beautiful - but I thought I knew how it would look. 2 years living cheaply, 2 years traveling abroad, then maybe a year back home before starting a family. . . . My life has split in two, there’s this trajectory of what I thought it was going to be that simply doesn’t exist anymore - it’s not going to happen. The second path is the one I was shoved down a year ago this September. . . . The thing is that right now I’m not afraid of who I am going to become on this new path, but I am afraid of letting go. I don’t believe I need to “let go” of this old life I thought I was going to have, but I need to carry it differently. Grieve it, hold it lightly, and honor myself in the process. . . . #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #fulfillingourdreams #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace
Grief The weight of grief makes it difficult to move forth. There is not a timeline for grieving. People who are grieving need supportive people around them. If someone in your family is dealing with loss and grief issues you can be a listening ear. Encourage counseling when you see they are having difficulty coping. Depression is normal, but they may benefit from professional help #celesteroberge the sculpturer #grief #griefsupport #grieving #grievingchildren #lossandgrief #dealingwithgrief #depression #depressedchildren
Good Monday to you all! This week I’d like to highlight my post called 5 Ways to Celebrate a Loved One You’ve Lost. I was inspired to write this because sometimes we all need some resources and new ideas for how to commemorate, honor and celebrate any lost loved ones.

Went hiking on Saturday with some friends, I understand that hiking can be a great workout, but I really enjoy taking my time and breathing in the fresh air and beauty around me (and maybe I’m the most out of shape of all my friends too 😉). . . . Honestly getting into the woods feels like hitting the reset button on my week, it’s been very healing to make time to do this for myself. . . . #hiking #takeahike #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #travel #traveltheworld #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #adventure #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace in #vail

My first full piece of watercolor! So far I’m actually really enjoying it which is different for me since drawing and painting is usually very stressful for me. The pallet I got is Windsor & Newton (it’s been such a dream to work with and would be awesome for traveling) and I also got these graphite sticks by Prima Marketing Inc. It’s been fun to experiment with everything. *Next part mentions death* I picked up watercolor as a way to take my mind off of what has been going on in my life for the past couple of weeks and hopefully as an outlet for all I have been feeling. A bit over two weeks ago my best friend was killed in a bad car wreck. This is why I haven’t posted anything lately. I’ve been trying to deal with everything and I honestly don’t know how I feel yet. ** #watercolor #windsorandnewton #primamarketing #watercolorpainting #watercolortree #art #trees #fox #bridge #water #stream #creek #river #grief #death #loss #dealingwithgrief #blue #black #orange #yellow

I left town pretty suddenly for the funeral, we didn’t have much notice. I’m wishing I’d had time to plan out what oils I might need for the trip. I only have the ones I usually carry with me. My wife @goodandoily sent me this recipe, because she knew it included some of my very favorite oils. I’ll be using this when I get home, and sharing it with my family.

Foot in the clouds! Just painted! (See price below.) Well so I"m experimenting with styles, after starting back making art...I just want to explore. I thought I'd just paint "spiritual" art, and planned to create some Buddha images. But Spirit is saying oh try this, and this. I used to do clouds around the time my mom died. Usually small paintings, that I do relatively quickly. My dear friend Kenny would go to #NYCCentralPark with me and we would sit by the lake and I'd paint. Well at least one time, it was such fun. And I'd go to more quiet places and paint. It's meditative, really I'll say more later... $50 w/o shipping! Its 18x7 inches approx, I can measure if you are interested. . #spiritualart #cloudpainting #dealingwithgrief #dailypainting #blackartist #womanartist #artforsale

Flash back to the full moon this last Friday. I went to a concert with a guy I’ve gone on a few dates with - he’s so kind and patient. He knows I don’t want a relationship, he knows I’m grieving, he knows I’m moving to a different state in September. As we were listening to the music, I closed my eyes and thought maybe if I couldn’t see it, maybe it’d be enough to trick my mind into believing I was with my husband instead. With enough alcoholic beverages, maybe I could pretend. . . . I am feeling emotionally unavailable. I don’t know that I have the capacity to have feelings right now above and beyond anything “platonic”, and that’s ok. I’m trying my best to listen to my heart and accept what it tells me I need. Just 2 months ago the thought of going on a date was unheard of, now I see while it doesn’t make me feel awful, I’m actually not feeling much at all. . . . . #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #adventure #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace
Tuesday reminder 💜. . . . To get up and face each day in the beginning was the bravest thing I think I’ve ever done. It’s no longer a struggle to drag myself out of bed (90% of the time) but I still try to do brave things, and I don’t want to let the fear of being alone stand in the way. . . . Being so young and having experienced death so close, I try to remember most days that I’m still living - so I should LIVE. Go on a hike if I want to even if no one can join me, travel where I want, even if it’s alone. Just get out there and do what makes you happy. . . . #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #adventure #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace

Does anyone remember the live action Scooby Doo movie with Sarah Michelle Geller and Freddy Prince Junior? Here’s why I bring it up ... . . . I keep thinking about this scene where Daphne shouts “what do you mean I can’t have 7 carry-on’s?” And she has a ton of baggage that is all matching and stacked neatly on her luggage cart. This is how I want my emotional baggage to look. I have been doing a lot of work on myself over the last 10ish months. I’ve been reading, seeing a therapist weekly, and doing anything to focus on myself, to make myself into who I want to be ... and really, to heal. . . . Here’s the thing: I have a lot of baggage. Im not going to be able to get rid of it. I don’t want to deny the existence of my baggage, but I want to do enough work on myself that my baggage is organized and neatly stacked on a luggage cart wherever I go. I don’t want it to drag me down or come crashing down into every new thing I do - and that will take work, so I think of this picture and hope my baggage will look like this someday. 😉 . . . #baggage #ownyourbaggage #selflove #selfcompassion #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #adventure #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace
Today our actors left for NYC to perform at the @dramatistsguild this weekend! Break legs!
I don’t really believe in life after death, I believe that once you’re gone then that’s it. It’s an eternity of nothingness. I haven’t been feeling all that great recently, I’ve been fairly withdrawn & just trying to take each day as it comes. This evening has been difficult. I just wish I could talk to my mum but alas I can’t. I’ve just stepped outside my front door & on the welcome mat lay this white feather. I can’t help but feel slightly comforted by it. I hope my mum is looking after me somewhere in her eternity of nothingness #mum #whitefeather #loss #death #dealingwithgrief #grief #grieving #greivingprocess #beliefs

10 months today. . . . I still remember the moment when it hit me that everything that was ever going to happen between us had already happened. It was just a few months ago. Being left with memories I’ll never forget wasn’t exactly the forever I envisioned, but it’s the only one I have. . . . I’ve been getting out, going out with friends, gaining new experiences, laughing, and planning for my future. I stopped wearing my wedding band in June, after I realized being asked if I was married felt worse than taking it off. I have moments of sadness juxtaposed against moments of joy and I think that’s just part of my life now. It’s a process. . . . . #love #loss #grief #dealingwithloss #inspiration #griefjourney #missyou #youngloss #widow #youngwidow #healing #seeyouontheotherside #loveyoualways #strength #fulfillingourpromise #fulfillingourdreams #loveyou #dealingwithgrief #newnormal #lifeafterloss #Findingpeace
A gentle reminder that this season will also pass... #missyoudad
Passage from Joe Biden’s book, “Promise me, Dad.” The loss of a child is unimaginable. This passage reminds me of my dad and brother, and brings some measure of comfort. #dealingwithgrief #herehecomes #joebiden #beaubiden #healing #hardtosaygoodbye #losingsomeoneyoulove
