One of those days...
Do you ever have one of "those" days?
I had one yesterday.
Within seconds of my alarm going off, I found no less than 3 text messages that would change the course of my day.
People needed my help.
People needed my flexibility.
People needed my permission.
People needed my compassion.
And within minutes, I was empty - before my feet had even hit the floor.
What do you do on days like that? How do you move forward when it feels like life just keeps trying to knock you down?
First I tried to push back.
Then I tried to find hope.
Next I tried to center and ground myself.
Eventually I was able to change my own perspective and forced myself to find the positives amidst all the negatives.
And then, as soon as I was able to do so, I gave myself some grace.
I let myself curl up on my sofa and sit in silence.
I let myself take care of me.
And as I fell asleep last night, I reminded myself that tomorrow would be a new day and a new chance to start again.
Sending you this reminder that if today is one of "those" days for you too, tomorrow is a new day.

Grief is everywhere for all of us - yet our society does a poor job allowing people to grieve. It is ok to grieve and it is normal to struggle with how to continue living your life while dealing with grief.
