Good Morning, everyone!
I’m back after a blogging break thanks to the amazing Natasha, my lovely co-host, who ensured that our weekly party continued, despite my absence for close to three weeks, since the passing of my father. Life has to go on and as duty calls, one has to buckle up. puts one’s best foot forward and march to the drum beats because that’s the only way one can embrace the impermanence of life.
Sharing today, a glimpse of a sombre sky on a rain-soaked morning in the gorgeously beautiful town of Arniston in South Africa. From the grey sky emerges an iridescent glow that promises to bring hope and light, only that it isn’t quite visible yet. Like life itself, that gives us heartbreak and then hands out candies to cheer us up.
Life must go on. Life will go on.
“People in the real world always say, when something terrible happens, that the sadness and loss and aching pain of the heart will “lessen as time passes,” but it isn’t true. Sorrow and loss are constant, but if we all had to go through our whole lives carrying them the whole time, we wouldn’t be able to stand it. The sadness would paralyze us. So, in the end, we just pack it into bags and find somewhere to leave it.”
Coming to terms with a loved one’s loss is hard, but we need not be hard on ourselves. Acceptance is key. It doesn’t heal on its’ own. You’ve got to work on it. Day after day. Week after week. I’m doing that and hoping that one day it will become easy. The gaping hole remains, though!
