Microblogging Part 4

We did it! Summer Wish Lists complete! Let’s take a moment to remember how this all started: I felt like something was off. I made a wishlist. My heart got torn apart. My grief came flooding back. The summer I had thought would be filled with romance and charm now seemed to be headed for weeks on end of sadness. And I was sad. Grief stricken and in so much pain. And at the same time, life was brilliant. I have friends that simply wouldn’t let me say no to coffee. I have friends who listened to me wail. I have friends that walked with me, ate ices with me, and sent me laughs and giggles. Then I went on a mission to do all the things. It was out of spite. It was fueled by rage and bitterness. Then. Now. Here I am. I had a summer filled with love. It wasn’t the romantic love I thought I’d be headed for. It was the kind of love that makes me so grateful to be alive, the kind that makes me feel safe, and the kind that’s unconditional. Yeah, I’m still ticked off and I’ve still got grief. I’ve also got new memories, a thriving wellness side gig, and the best family anyone could ever imagine. Everyone is going through something at any moment in time. Now more than ever we can see that the world doesn’t owe us anything. That means we can choose to pick each other up, create more kindness, and always be grateful for a moment of peace. Thanks for taking time to let me rant and rave and boast and blossom these past few weeks. This is proof that even my worst days are good days and that really every day is a good good day. #gettingthroughit #grief #grateful #gratitude #alwayslookup #summerwishlist #friendshipismyfavoriteship #longislandwriter #creativenonfiction #essayist #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifecoachingtips #reikipractitioner #yogalife #Buddhistlife #wellnesscoach
