What are you here to teach me, Grief?
Life is precious and valuable. You are strong and loved.
You can handle anything, but you’re not in control.
Trust. Dive all in—to the love, the joy, and yes, the grief.
Release the fear, pain and guilt.
Let it all flow through you. Transform.
Become new. Become more you. Over and over again. Live a life of metamorphosis.
Release the old tricks and tools that no longer serve. Stop grabbing.
Be good to your body.
Suck the marrow out of life. Take time out when you need it. Be true to you.
Honor your pain, sadness, heartache, and outrage, but don’t become them.
Learn. Forgive. Love. Hope. Pray. Cry. Laugh. Write. Dance. Read. Listen.
Appreciate. Accept. Honor. Share.
Life rolls out in seasons. You hating winter doesn’t make it any less cold.
If you’re still here., it’s for a reason. Find it. Live it. Love it.
Open to new possibilities.

You said it best: “Grief has been an unexpected ingredient for tasting life’s sweetness.” May I borrow your words, giving you credit, of course?
