Walk through the woods along the #elanvalleypipeline with my parents followed by delicious lunch at #csonsludlow #ludlow #shropshire . . . The pipeline that takes water from the Elan Valley to Birmingham travels across The Shire via a number of architectural and engineering features. Over the last couple of years Alistair and I tracked them down, including a couple of impressive aqueducts and some rather fine valve houses in the woods near Ludlow. We had already decided together that this would be a good walk to take my parents on. I decided to take my parents on it today to share it with them #bereavement #livingwithloss #walksinthecountry

I had a fantastic counselling session today. I opened up a lot about my inner feelings. I have been very frustrated with the way my life is & has been. I have hurt people & I am hurting myself too. I have to let go of the past as it is ruining my future. I know the coping mechanisms & staying Me is my priority. My path will never be easy & that is because I CAN deal with the circumstances in front of me. I am strong & I am OK. Happiness must come from inside to shine on the outside.... #wellbeing #mindset #motivate #positivity #pma #lawofattraction #wellness #mylife #inmyheart #love #believe #makeit #bereavement #cruse #matt #bealive #monday #iamgoingtomakeit

Many of you know that I have completed a manuscript that I have been writing for some time. I am in the process of looking to have it published. Some irons in the fire to that effort. But here is a little insight into "So Far...my journey through grief & beyond" Link to full video in bio #sofarthebook

The meaning of "charity" in this form is generous acts of love for our fellows. Bear Valley Hospice promotes love and kindness as a way of healing the spirit. No act of kindness however goes unnoticed by the universe. #bearvalleyhospice #hospice #bigbear #bigbearlake #bethechange #loveisallthereis #gratitudeiseverything #wehonorveterans #hospicevolunteer #hospicenurse #hospicesocialworker #listen #griefsupport #bereavement #bekind

This woman right here is my auntie Meles. My mother in law passed the year my husband and I married and my auntie Meles has been the closest thing to a mother in law I ever had. She didn’t have to be the woman she has been. I was so fortunate to have her by my side these last 4 days in Chicago. As soon as I decided I wanted to have a diamond made out of my husbands ashes, I asked her if she would go with me to hand deliver the ashes. We had no idea where the place was, whether it was in the US or another country but before I even finished asking she cut me off and said “I will be there”. I cannot express in words how grateful and appreciative I am for her. No matter what, she has been a solid constant in my life and I know she will always be. I love you auntie Meles, thank you for all that you do. You are my real life Olivia Pope. #family #grieving #grievingwife #grievingwithhope #griefjourney #mygriefjourney #bereavement #healing #griefsupport #youngwidow #untilwemeetagain

Immensely blessed to have my very own Fairy Godmother. This outfit was Spot. On. Everyone should have a Margie in their life. . “Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows.” - Walt Disney // As a bereaved bride, Momma dressing as Sadness from Inside Out was absolute PERFECTION. . This angel has been an immense support to me throughout the entire wedding journey. She’s made sure to be there (from out of state) for every important event. Our marathon, weekly conversations are pretty lovely too. . When you find a sassy, kindred spirit in your wedding photographer. SO grateful for this kind, uber talented woman. So happy she’ll be with us for the big day, and I look forward to all future coffee dates and meals shared together. . My Bride Tribe really came through in tying everything together, and making my personal Disneyland dreams a reality. It was magic, and I’m thankful for these women. . . . #bridalshower #bridalparty #bridetribe #wedding #weddingplanning #disneyland #happiestshoweronearth #disney #disneyprincess #belle #disneybound #fairygodmother #sadness #bereavedbride #grief #bereavement #loss #support #empathy #suzygoodrickphotography #bridesmaids #bestfriends #hansolo #merida #gaston #donaldduck

Big questions arise as we grapple with age and the things that have impacted our lives on many complex levels. Karen completely uprooted her life, moving from Toronto to Banff, in order to help press the reset button. Big things have happened to her, really good and really bad. She’s talking to me about some of them, starting with reflections on living a life without a father: _ “Lately, and for no reason I can grasp, I have been thinking a lot about my dad. He was killed a month before my 2nd birthday and it was always just a reality my family lived with. I don’t have a dad. He died. It was normal for me. I called my mom the other day to ask her if my dad loved me. If he wanted me. If he was happy that I was born. Why am I asking these things now? I’m going to be 45 next week, and to me, it just seems odd that I’ve lived my whole life without wondering. I still see dads with their little girls and it hits me. That must be what it’s like to have a father. That’s what I missed.” | #conversationsaboutdeath

Don’t you hate when someone you know is going through a tough time, and you don’t know what to say? And then the longer you leave it the harder it gets? It’s so hard to know what to say, and you worry that you’ll say the wrong thing, but most of the time, it’s worse to say nothing at all. Don’t just saying nothing; say nothing by saying SOMETHING..... #thatchcreativeuk #saynothingbysayingsomething #empathycards #empathy #chronicillness #babyloss #bereavement

#michelleobama entered the White House as the first African American First Lady, and bowed out as the woman every little girl will aspire to be. Inspiring young people was the driving force behind her memoir, #becoming. January is National #mentoring Month. In the series Note To Self with #cbsnews, Mrs. Obama wrote a letter to her younger self, and it’s a must read. She pays a heartfelt tribute to her late father. “Your father's final lesson will come far too soon. He'll teach you that life is fleeting. So laugh with him until your side hurts. Savor the grip of his hugs, the softness in his eyes. A day will come when those memories are all you'll have. His absence will hit you like a rock. It'll cause you to rethink everything about yourself and your future. But don't worry, you won't have to go through any of this alone,” she shared. Mrs. Obama also talked about her life with #barackobama, and raising their two daughters. Then she gets candid about the bumps, bruises, and life lessons along her journey. “You'll be attacked by people who've never met you, and don't really care to. They'll try to harm you for their own gain. Don't stoop to their level, no matter how gratifying it might feel in the moment,” she mentioned. Michelle Obama even emphasized being a light for #blackgirls, and other minorities trying to find their rightful place in this world. “Share your story with them, the struggles and the triumphs, and everything else. Show them that there's more beauty inside, than they can see right now,” she added. The letter ends with this affirmation. “You are more than enough, Miche. You always have been, and you always will be,” she expressed. Visit cbsnews.com to read the full letter. #beatyourblues #griefsupport #griefandloss #blackgirlhealing #blackwomenrock #womenofcolor #bereavement #blackmentalhealth #blackwomenshealth #browngirlheal #blackgirlmagic #minoritymentalhealth #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmomsrock #peopleofcolor #blackexcellence #girlempowerment #blackwomen #blackgirlpower #obamafoundation #blackgirljoy #globalgirlsalliance #womensempowerment dmvgirls #girlseducation

A counselor once challenged me to be "accurate" with my emotions. See I had the tendency to soften or dismiss my more raw and uncomfortable emotions. When I spoke about my grief or journaled about my losses, I wanted to be at the place where I had come to peace and understanding. I wanted my words to be mature and wise. But I was skipping over the genesis of my emotions. And I had to explore why I was afraid to just say how I was exactly feeling, regardless if it was messy or uncharitable. I was also able to see that regardless if I named my true feelings, they would make themselves know eventually. Stuffed emotions tend to come out sideways, being more chaotic and toxic to your life. • • So as you tell your grief story, you compose your laments, write hard and clear about what hurts.

There were nine of us. By the time I was twenty-four, there were three. Now, there's two. It's like standing in an impact crater - trying to remember what was where and wondering what could have been. My story of these events is almost finished but these last few sections are like cave diving, low on air, without light. #thebirdsroad #family #grief #bereavement #cancer #surviving #why #gonetoosoon #brothers #sisters #momanddad #trajectory #keepaforwardmomentum #neverquit #impact #memories #thingsyoudo #seetheelephant #ptsd #depression #earnthis

Everyone in Dungarvan is in absolute shock this morning as the terrible news filtered through that one of the funniest, joyful, reflective (check out his Facebook page for his wonderful "chats") energetic, upbeat, generous, supportive, WICKEDLY funny people we all know is gone. Micheal Wright was known and loved by so many, had supported so many clubs, charities, organisations and individuals in his work & personal time, and just when he should have been enjoying life & his family & grandkids, they're all now bereft. 💔 His attitude was "Life is for Living" - so please take his message with you on this cold Monday morning. Don't assume you have forever. Don't wait to wear the good clothes. Don't assume people know you love them. Don't postpone til tomorrow what you can do today. Life is so PRECIOUS. Work on the bad. Focus on the good. Live your life fully. Be like the Micheal. In loving memory of the Mad Hatter. 💔

GRIEF MATTERS EPISODE 2: The LOSS of a CHILD is out. In this episode, I interview @amanda.maughan1 about the loss of her beloved son, Harrison, to suicide.

It is important to Amanda that people know that The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is a absolutely phenomenal resource for those coping with this type of struggle or this type of loss.💗🧡🦋

Posted @withrepost • @carole_oddy Facebook page - Portraits by Carole Oddy I receive lots of requests and orders for drawings of people and pets who are no longer with us. These can be individual portraits, or more often they will be pictures of people who have passed away with new members of the family. Also people who have realised after death that they don't have any pictures together with the loved one no longer here. I am able to work from separate photographs and draw them as though they were in the same picture. Please message me with any requests. #grief #love #loss #sad #sadness #griefsupport #death #healing #hope #grieving #griefjourney #griefandloss #family #pain #memories #support #heartbreak #sorrow #bereavement

Today is supposed to be blue Monday Believe or don’t believe.. It is calculated using a series of factors in a (not particularly scientific) mathematical formula. The factors are: the weather, debt level (specifically, the difference between debt and our ability to pay), the amount of time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivational levels and the feeling of a need to take charge of the situation. I DON’t believe it .... I think we have a choice to blame ... It’s Monday not many like Mondays that’s true ... for me it’s the start of feeling alone again but for many it’s the return to a working week ... maybe it’s a job they hate , or somebody they dread to see , or just the idea of it not being a day off ... Everyday life gets in our road , we all moan , dull days don’t help ... I’m someone who suffers with mental health & im not afraid to say it , I’m someone who suffers from trauma but I’m not going to let this blue Monday define me today .... I will feel down because I feel down NOT because it’s the so called BLUE MONDAY B****** ... However you feel that’s ok whatever day & whenever ...... please keep talking to someone a stranger , a friend it’s helped me for the past year .... reach out or if you see someone & you’re ok reach to the ones that are not !!! Much love Forever Dylan’s mum 💙💙💙💙💙🌍#dylansarmy💙 #dylansarmy #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mindfulness #health #bereavement #family #community #reachout #monday

Something to ponder...

Did you know we hold a monthly bereavement support drop-in session at St Catherine’s? It’s open to all members of our community, not only those who have experienced the care and support of the hospice. Call in for coffee and a friendly chat on the second Wednesday of the month, from 7.30pm until 9pm. The next drop-in is on 13th February; there’s no need to book in advance but you can call our Support Team for more information on 01772 629171 🙂 . . #stcatherinespre #stcatherineshospice #hospicesupport #supportsessions #bereavement #bereavementsupport #bereavementsupportgroup #community #preston #lostockhall

That thing you keep putting off. Do it.⠀ ⠀ That massage you want to go get. Do it.⠀ ⠀ The movie you want to go see on your own. Do it.⠀ ⠀ That course you keep reading up about but not enrolling in. Do it. ⠀ ⠀ I’ve learnt the hard way to stop making excuses and to just GO do it... whatever IT may be.⠀ ⠀ For the last two months I’ve been committed to going to acupuncture every week. Yep every single week. I’ve left the house a mess, the dinner cooking, missed bath books and bed and did something for me. ⠀ ⠀ And it’s been great. For my body and my mental health. ⠀ ⠀ Plus the added nap I seem to get at every appointment 💤 #cantstayawake⠀ ⠀ And you know what everyone else has survived. ⠀ ⠀ Yes, there has been a few tears here and there but now my girls just ask me bluntly ‘have you got acupuncture tonight’ and move on if I say yes. ⠀ ⠀ So my advice... as NIKE says... just do it!

Day 110 - missing this today. Just the casual funny bits of a relationship with a best friend and person you love. The dog had gone for a groom and this was the picture of her new haircut G had sent me (obviously very dashing 🐶). At the time nothing out of the ordinary, I probably glanced at it and smiled for all of 15 seconds before we were back on with something else - probably a trivial worry or a thing that at the time seemed urgent. These are the things you treasure when someone is gone suddenly - the comforting, loving random stuff - the boring bits of life - the mundane and ultimately the most precious and irreplaceable #widow #youngwidow #mondaymusings #cockapoo #dogsofinstagram #doggrooming #bereavement #grief #griefandloss #griefjourney #griefishardwork #memories

In the early hours of this morning my father passed away and has gone to join my mother. A different type of grief is with me. RIP Dad 💖💐🌹

I have been wanting to expand this platform to not only include perspectives of health and wellness, but also to use it as a way to share therapeutic resources, as I have been a certified child life specialist for over 6 years and am working towards licensure in marriage and family therapy and credentials in play therapy. I believe sharing resources with the community is so important, so once a week I want to highlight some of the things that have really impacted my practice. This photo shows one of my favorite tools when facilitating self-expressive activities with children. They are called All About Me Family Counters. I’ve used them in bereavement work with children but also have incorporated them in child-directed free play as well. They are a great tool in providing children an avenue for us as clinicians or parents to enter and understand their world. They can be bought at @target or @amazon!

i just recently got back into writing. i go through a lot of my old work in awe sometimes. i had no clue what life was, but i could write the inner workings of a feeling so perfectly, unabashed & in confidence. definitely a talent, but also the main reason why i gave it up in 2003 when my firstborn died. i would try though. i'd write, scribbles gushing from a pen, hoping that something would make sense through the mess of it. i'd look at the words, feeling things out-loud that i had yet to really process internally. i would have to stop. every time. i couldn't handle the shock of giving birth at 23 weeks. how the daydream of changing diapers and chubby legs had been replaced with NICU's and nurses. 1lb & 8oz of a tiny human with skin so frail & melanin as red as blood. then, hydrocephalus at 2 weeks old. and a tap surgery for a brain too small for a shunt. and pumping milk every 4 hours. and TPN. and incubator covers. and signing DNRs. and beeps of a tiny heart fighting so strong. and a tracheostomy. and out-growing the tap but too sick from TPN to have shunt surgery. and a brain bleed. and a death. how do you write about a 4 month old dying when it's a nightmare you never knew existed? in all the books, in all the movies, in all the music, THIS scenario had been left out and i was clawing for some point of reference while i fell down the mountain of this experience. i couldn't write about the gravity of death while pressed under the weight of its heaviness, radical and suffocating. i felt so alone. i felt abandoned by my family. i blamed his father relentlessly and because he battled his own demons, he accepted it, carrying a guilt that never healed either of us. so i stopped writing. i wallowed in that particular sadness for years. trying to purge it with liquor, parties, men, women, whatever made me feel better on the outside & masked the intense burn of loss i carried daily. as of late, i've learned my lesson: don't turn your back on the things that make you feel, that make you cry, that force your attention to the pain. this is how you heal. so although i may not be as sharp as i once was, i'm gathering the words to get there.

It is one of a series of works created in response to a post-bereavement hallucinatory experience (PBHE).

Today’s sparks of joy...seeing the beautiful sunshine coming into our house upstairs. It was lush to go up and have a little nap in the sunshine this afternoon, even though it was because I’m feeling unwell. My second spark of joy was seeing Ami’s dosa for dinner after church. • So this is it. The final countdown to 1 year. I don’t know what to do for Aryan’s birthday on the 25th. I’ve organised a ‘drop in afternoon’ to acknowledge Aryan’s 1st birthday on Saturday the 26th with tea, cake and prosecco followed by a time of worship with friends from church. But the 25th is more private, more personal and our time to grieve and mourn deeply before his drop in the next day. I want it to be meaningful to us and reflective of Aryan. 🤷🏽‍♀️ • #sparkjoy #sunshine #wintersun #jesus #christian #christianart #dosa #indianfood #desikhana #stillbirth #stillbirthawareness #lifeaferloss #babyloss #pregnancyloss #parentingafterloss #preeclampsia #grief #grievingmother #bereavement #bereavedmother #aryandevdanielpert #babyboy #stillbornstillloved

I’m going to tell you something I hope you’ll never have to know. I’ll tell you how a heart can break And tears can constant flow. . . I lost my baby girl you see, An angel in my eyes God chose to take her hand one day And led her to the skies. . . But please do not forget my child She was a person too And forever she will live Inside of me and you. . . So, please don’t ever tell me That time will heal my pain Because not even time Can bring her back again. . . Just tell me she is happy In that land way up above She’s snuggled in an angels wings All wrapped in Mommy’s love.. . . HAPPY 16th Birthday Hailey. Always wrapped in my love! Always living in my heart ❤️ . . . #loss #grief #infantloss #angels #sids #sidsawareness #notforgotten #alwaysinourhearts #butterflyspirit #family #heart #bereavement #soul #spiritually #forever #birthdaygirl #halo #butterflykisses #reality

Thank you all so much for remembering Dylan , for caring for us , for kindness , for helping me to help others ,for raising awareness for sepsis in Dylan’s memory....... for giving me especially something to focus on when I could of been lost ...... All my love & love from Phil , Amelia & Zach too Love forever Dylan’s mum 💙💙😓 Have you ever watched a really good movie or read a really good book & it comes to an end 💔 it’s similar to that feeling when I lost Dylan but a million , million times worse it’s that feeling of joy & comfort just gone & never again will it happen or last like we would of liked 💔💔💔 Tomorrow I will wake again without him but I will keep trying my best. Today has been a morning watching Amelia ride & doing a few jobs for Troy ( her therapy & Joy) Then it’s been a day all together sitting with each other just like we always like to be .... I hear Dylans voice In everything we do it hurts so much because it’s so unfair & sad but I’m grateful he was our son & I know my love can never die for him. 💔💔💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 but I am sad & I am broken beneath it all. Night everyone xxxxx So many to thank I will carry on looking tomorrow because I don’t want to miss anything xxxx Thank you #dylansarmy 💙#lifeafterloss #newyearwithoutyou #bereavement #childloss #friendship #community #shinealight #candle #lostlife #1yearanniversary #withoutyou #feelings #emotions #mentalhealth #kindness #diary #mum #mother #dylansarmy💙
