It’s the beginning of a new year, and many make new year’s goals and resolutions, but when you are in the midst of grief this may not seem possible.

Can you envision your life after grief?  If even for a moment, try to let your grief go…and perhaps get a glimpse of what life still holds for you.  Imagine answers to these questions…

  • Can you envision life after grief?
  • What will it look like?
  • Where will you live?
  • Who will be your friends?
  • How will you fill your time?
  • How would your loved one want you to live?  Happy, fulfilled, enjoying each moment?
  • What is your loved one telling you?

Now write down what you felt.  If you’ve gotten a glimpse of what you life can be like, hold onto this thought, and remember you will journey out of grief into a new found appreciation of life.
