Just another Friday...
"All writers, I think, are to one extent or another damaged. Writing is our way of repairing ourselves." -- J. Anthony Lukas
Another Friday. Another week gone by.
What did you do this week?
Time to think about you, as you process your grief.
Take time. Become your own best friend.
Did you comb your hair?
Did you brush your teeth?
Did you fingerhug your pen and write something, anything, in your joy-nal?
Sounds silly, maybe, to a non-widow. But for the newly widowed, and anyone of us out here cycling through the grief process, little things do mean a lot, and help mark our new beginning.
Why not sit down today. Set a clock timer for ten. Fingerhug your pen. Then make a list of all the things you would like to do this week.
Make a plan.
After you comb your hair and brush your teeth, of course.
I dare you.
Have a joy-filled day, Everyone! And just remember, we're not alone.
