The Importance of Looking For the Lesson

When you’re experiencing a loss (of any sort) the pain and devastation of your loss can feel overwhelming.
Every individual will process grief in their own unique way. My husband, Andrew (Dan’s father), and I coped with our son’s passing completely differently.
There is no “right” or “wrong” way to grieve. Some of the immediate emotions in grief are shock, numbness, denial, confusion and disbelief—all of which can act as a cushion against the full impact of your loss.

As time passes, some of these early emotions may begin to wear off as others emerge including guilt, anger, loneliness, despair, sadness and regret. Because of the intensity of all the emotions you are feeling, you may not be able to fully comprehend all that you are experiencing. These feelings and emotions are all a normal and natural response to the passing of someone you love or the one thing you truly had your heart set upon having.
Some will express their pain easily and openly, while others will keep their feelings locked inside.
One thing I know for sure is that there is a lesson for you in every situation. Be it either a perceived negative or positive, there is a lesson. And to be honest, there is really just a situation or event, neither negative nor positive as the classifications will be classed differently by each and every one of us.
Looking for the lesson is a way for us to heal quickly. So much so, that the word actually tells us that as soon as we get the lesson, there will be “less on” us.
How cool is our language?
Look for the lesson, you’ll heal and have less on you – less angst, less regrets, less of everything.
Love, love, love it.
Though to be honest, I do understand that sometimes you require a different perspective for you to sort through things to find the lesson in a timely manner.Not sure where to start?

Until next time…..

Be well and remember to make each day meaningful, memorable and magical………..and never, ever, ever stop dancing!
