It’s been so rewarding to my soul to write here. Regardless if people read it or don’t. It feels good to write and get it out there. But all good things must come to an end.
Ive learned a lot through writing here. I’ve found out that what I have to say can touch hearts. I’m so grateful for that. For those of you that have said “Please don’t stop writing” THANK YOU! Thank you for building my confidence as a writer. It’s something I’ve always strived to be better at as a teacher. It’s, in my opinion one of the hardest things to teach students, but one that I find most valuable. It’s my favorite to teach and I love that you all make me feel good at it.
Through this, I suppose I’ve done a lot of self talk. I say what I know I should do, and in turn do it for myself. Good self therapy.
Ive been through a lot of trials in the past ten years. Most consisted of deaths of people I love. Very difficult. Never easy. But…I survived. And I knew I would, but it was never easy and it still isn’t.
I attended a funeral this week of a man I only met one time. Watching his loved ones mourn was heart wrenching. I went to support them. Not sure what good I was there, but I could feel their pain. Ive been there myself. Death is never easy. Ever. And watching people you love mourn is not easy either.
So I’ve learned that it’s ok to also mourn for others. You don’t have to know someone to help their loved ones get through. Just be present.
Ive loved. I’ve lost. I’ve loved others who have lost. And I am learning to love them through it.
And that brings me to this. THANK YOU to everyone who has loved me through all of this. Because of your support and kindness we are on the up now! I’m at peace and feel like I can help others. It’s because of you that I don’t have to write this blog anymore! ❤️
