Grief is a wild, weird, worried, and wacky journey. With that said, you need to grant yourself permission.
Permission to grieve, allow yourself those quiet times of self pity, where you allow yourself to feel all of the raw emotion. You are entitled to your feelings, just try not to hang out in that dark space too long.
But more importantly,
Permission to enjoy life, even for a minute. Find something or some way to let the burden of grief go, even if just temporarily.
Here I have posted a photo of myself. This is actually only 4 months after my husband passed. I signed myself up for an adventure. This is me swimming with the dolphins. I allowed myself to relax, enjoy, and put aside the difficult emotions of the previous 4 months to be in this moment. It made all the difference in my grief journey.
Give yourself permission…
