You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.
It occurred to me recently that this past year has personally been full of change and good-bye’s. As I experienced yet another bittersweet moment I thought about how even positive change brings some measure of stress and sense of loss; loss of the familiar, loss of comfort and sometimes loss of someone close. And in this past year I’ve really not taken time to honor those feelings, experience them and allow myself to move forward.
Write about changes you’ve experienced, how they’ve impacted you and give yourself permission and space for grieving, nurturing and letting go.
