It is important for care-partners to acknowledge loss, and grieve , but …
Personally, focus on gratitude does not mean that I negate or even ignore grief. Instead I mindfully lean into the grief in order to ENABLE an attitude of gratitude. I am thankful for you, dear reader. You give me hope … that these experiences can become part of resource tools to enrich the relationships that are building blocks for all community.
I realize this is just beginning stages and no sense in wasting too much time for focus of loss.
But also important to recognize loss, and endure the grief process, in order to best appreciate the time remaining.
Today has been one of those days. … Losing every enjoyed activity and losing memory of every loved one – in excruciating increments.
