loss.

Loss makes us grieve.

Death is loss.

But there are many other kinds of loss.

Job.

Home.

Sickness.

Failure (perceived or real).

Broken dreams.

You were going one way, until suddenly, it all stopped.

Your fault, his fault, her fault, their fault.

Why blame? Does it help?

Learn flexibility. The way a vine finds the path to reach the sky.

Unhindered, unapologetic

… but not unscathed.

A  leaf turns yellow and a new one grows. A blossom drops and a new one forms.

Let the tears fall and the anger find a place.

But then, live again.
