Sometimes it takes a life-changing event to make you pay attention to what’s more important in life. I love the quote “Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away” – author Hilary Cooper.
I’m looking to increase the moments in my life that can take my breath away. Life is too short to waste time chasing the wrong path. There are things today, that no longer matter to me, and things that I never imagined would make me go WOW that absolutely make me want to find out more.
I am not a mental health professional or do I have any education in any type behavioral health. But I have many life experiences that have brought me to this point in my life. Writing about it provides a means to see change. These are only my thoughts, my brokenness, my pain, my love, my life laid out before you as a testimony that life can and does move forward – just not in the way you might think.
So if you are struggling with loss, find someone professional who can help you with your thoughts and feelings. I would encourage maintaining a journal of your journey, because it does in a way remove some of the heaviness from your heart and puts it out in a place that you can go back and measure how far you have come.
Until next time,
