What Is It About Loss, That Can Either Make Us Or Break Us?…

Mom…

Memories of my Mom…

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you…

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t miss you…

I lost my biggest Life Coach, Cheerleader, Confidant, Friend and Mentor… to what now seems like a life time ago…

And my heart will never be completely full again…

I am a lucky woman, however, to have been taught by you, that life can be wonderful, no matter what your circumstances!  But, it has taken me a very long time to absorb this wisdom.  It did not come easily to me.  I guess for some of us, the hardships must be deep and long before the lesson’s learned.  I think I tried to fight it or deny it , bury it or wallow in it?  Maybe all of the above!  I’m not really sure.  All I know is, I thank you for how patient you were with me and I am hopeful that you would be thankful and proud, that I am finally living again… Embracing and putting into action the principles you instilled in me so very long ago.

What is it about loss that can either make us or break us?  And loss comes in so very many forms, doesn’t it?

The loss of friendships, pets, illnesses, accidents, acts of violence, death and more… Or, how about the loss of the living, as in my case, a child to Autism or those with a parent to Alzheimer’s?  This in some ways, is an even harder loss to bear…

It takes courage and commitment to pick up the brokenness and turn it into something magical.  To use it to honor, make proud, make a difference, rather then let it swallow you whole and deny you happiness and a life worth living.

Does this ring true for you?  Have you been afraid to break free?  Love is a funny thing, isn’t it?  It can make you feel whole and alive and happy and when lost it can make you feel broken, lifeless and sad.  Of course, if we never felt love, we wouldn’t feel heartbreak and maybe that’s the whole point…  You can’t appreciate what you never had, so learning appreciation for the good and the bad is how we grow.  How we grow in faith, and in love, and in happiness.  It’s how we inspire and how we begin to create the change we want.  The change we need.  The change that will make us whole again.

I hope my mom knows how much I love and admire her and I’d like to think she’s proud of the woman I’m becoming…
