Love is all around us. Sometimes you just have to look.
Jonah. I knew I loved him and he was a dear friend, but without the loss of him, I would not be who I am today. I almost hesitate to write that because it may be interpreted as I’m better off without him. This is untrue. I’m better off because his being lives within me. The lesson it taught me lives within me. How can I be sad when I get to feel his joy within me?
Tell those dear to me how much they impact my life in a positive way. Give grace and thanks during my meditation practice for those who came before me and those who will come after. Giving thanks for the presence of my issues because without them, I would not learn to grow and thrive and transform.
I need to shift my focus on what I’m missing out on to what I currently have. I try to analyze events and thoughts so I can avoid pain and make the smartest move. This can prevent me from seeing all of the great things around me.
I would throw a big party with everyone that I love. I would tell them how much I love them and tell them how much they have meant to me. I’d have a conversation to God or the Universe and ask for peace at this hard time. I’d be grateful that I have been so lucky to have such a blessed life and have met so many wonderful people.
