Morning Motivation

It’s been a long time since I been in this space. When my son Devin died in 2019 it seemed impossible for me to find my way. Although I had just gone through the most horrific thing that any parent could face, I wanted to feel like myself again. Going through this process, I realized that grief doesn’t have a time limit. May 20, 2023 will be four years, and I still have my moments. but I can honestly say that I’ve gotten stronger. I can talk about him without crying most of the time. As I continue to blog you will find out more about my journey. Today in this moment I want to encourage you to give yourself time. Grief will never go away, but it is going to be way more Suttle than in the beginning. I have finally gotten to the point where I can begin to live. I gifted myself, by starting over. living for me, moving, starting fresh in a new city, state, and job. This was the best decision I could’ve made. I carry my son in my heart. His favorite things came with me. One day I’m going to share them with his nieces and nephews. I don’t have any grandchildren yet, but when I get some, they are going to know about their uncle. To anyone that is going through the grieving process, take your time. No one can tell you how to grieve. Everyone is different. I want to tell you also to keep in mind you are still living. Show up every day better than the previous day. You are going to make it.
