Everyday is different, every moment is different. We are different than we were 5 minutes ago. This is true on and off of the mat. I always remind my students of this. And in moving with grief it’s no different. Yesterday, I was full of joy and laughter (if you saw my dance video you’ll know I felt amazing 😉)and today is different. The dream world can sometimes plague me and leave me feeling heavy with sadness upon waking. It’s how I choose to move forward that makes all of the difference, so I’m learning. Today, in the moment, I will allow the emotions to wash over me and then let them go. Not suppressing them but also not holding on to them. It’s a practice in being intentional with my thoughts. And I will give myself compassion and patience in knowing that this emotional gift is just that, it’s a gift in grace. ♥️♥️♥️ #heartache#heartjoy#intentionsetting#itsapractice#yogaonandoffofthemat#griefsupport#griefgratitudegreatness#loveneverdies#findjoy#compassionisloveinaction#griefandgrace#livewellbewell
Stop laughing Rich. Yes I know there’s literally cow sh** in my boots. At one stage I got stuck in the muck and thought I was going to drown in it. Not an ideal way to go, given that you want me to live. How did she die? Well...I suspect they could hear me swearing back in the village. Apparently the locals know to avoid this stretch of footpath. It should have warning signs - you are about to enter a cess pit. My boots now have to stay outside, as they smell so bad. I love you so much my darling, always and forever #griefwalks#richwalks#grief#bereavement#soulmates#loveneverdies
3 years ago, different place, different person, different thoughts...time changes many things. But not unconditional love...Today, tomorrow and for the rest of my life I will focus on the blessings that have entered my life, in the last 21 years. That’s what deserves my focus and my energy. Not what happened back then, what went wrong, who left...that doesn’t matter now. All of those things were stepping stones to help me become who I am today. I say often how badly I wish you could’ve met these beautiful people in my life, see what I’ve done and more. But...you must know these people. I am certain God placed them in my life. You must see what my life has become and what I plan to do...because I still believe you’re with me, every step of the way. I know you would want me to stop being a prisoner of my sadness, and you know what? I want that too. I want to break chains with my joy, i dream of living the rest of my days with a smile on my face and seeing the best in every situation. Even if it isn’t a good one. You taught me I can survive anything, and I was born to THRIVE! From this moment on...I’m going to make myself proud, and I know you’ll be proud too. Life is too short to be anything but happy. I love you with all my heart mom. It’s time to break free. 💛 #mom#imissyou#iloveyou#spring#butterfly#loveneverdies

Happy first day of Spring. 🌷 One of my favorite spring pictures from Hilton Head in 2008. So grateful for the memories and the pictures. What a kind and beautiful soul. We are coming up on our “hard” season. It is hard to believe it will be six years. Arielle might not be here but she continues to teach me. She sure is missed. Ps, a big red cardinal just flew up and sat in the big crepe myrtle that sits in front of my office window. 💚💙
After this morning’s bereavement counselling session. It’s good to talk. Talking has kept me alive. If you’re experiencing out of order bereavement, please reach out. Even if you have to go through several counsellors to find one that works well with you. I was lucky and struck gold with mine #grief#bereavement#griefandloss#loveneverdies
This wonderful gold layered pendant all cleaned up and ready to go for engraving. The back disc has been textured with ashes. The mark of a true jewellery is surely how messed up their nail polish is right? That’s what we think here at AMJ.
