It’s a delicate balance… this space between grief and gratitude.
Some might think they are contradictory experiences…
That somehow they cannot possibly go together, but I beg to differ. I actually believe that the best practice of grief…
The one that comes with the most peace and leads to fastest path to healing contains an immense amount of gratitude.
The ability to tap into the space of “Although I wish you were here…”
I’m grateful for the memories…
Even the fights
And the disappointments
Because they were all a part of the journey of knowing you… and as such, a part of the journey of learning me.
At the end of the day, isn’t that why we’re all here?
To grow… evolve… become the best versions of ourselves?
If not, what would be the purpose of the pains?
Kinda a bleak thought, right?
It leaves us with no hope… no light at the end of the tunnel…
No way to transmute the negatives into positives that produce the best in our lives.
So, standing in that awareness…
Can you find the gratitude in the grief?
Are you able to take a step back and be grateful for the loss?
Because there’s always a lesson…
And whatever the lesson, it is necessary for your growth.
It’s necessary to live your purpose and live it powerfully.
With that in mind… let’s agree to find the gratitude, even in grief.
