How I learned to be still with my pain

Good morning beautiful souls. I had the most amazing day yesterday, but it wasn’t without lots of feelings and emotions.

You see I was happy to be celebrating Mother’s Day, but I was truly missing my best friend in heaven more then ever.

I went and spent the morning with her beautiful daughter Maya, sending out some light and love into this world, hoping to fill both of our cups with presence.

When I got back home, I saw a video that Renees husband made and I just lost it. As I was showing it my daughter I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes again.

At that very moment I could have pushed it all away and made myself stop crying. But instead I said to my beautiful girl “it’s perfectly normal to cry over losing your best friend” and I did just that.

It was in this very moment that I understood how much I’ve grown. Feeling isn’t always fun and that’s why we’ve been taught to avoid it, but there’s a better way.

Nothing will heal until you feel. So I chose to teach my daughter that tears are not only welcomed but highly encouraged.

That it’s not a bad thing to feel and to love, it’s actually an amazing gift. So I ask you as I end this blog, how often do you push the yucky stuff away? And how willing are you to sit with it?
