A beautiful soul departed today from this planet.
It was a surprise.
Within less than 24 hours everything changed … and he’s gone.
And it has brought up the question
Intellectually I ‘know’ it’s not for me to figure out…there is a greater plan in place …
And yet at the moment, there is no comfort there.
So I ask the best question in my toolbox…
How can I be grateful?
Some may have issue with me asking this question:
- How Selfish!
- Why would you be grateful!?
I’m not here to change your mind. I am here to ask the question and I do it because me feeling sorry doesn’t do one thing for me to allow this loss to serve in anyway, to continue his legacy. (grief and self-pity are not the same thing). So I ask the question.
I can be grateful for this sudden loss as it has awoken in me a new urgency to live fully. To drop the story and the fear and the bull**** ‘what ifs’, to jettison the fear of rejection, to BE ME and allow others their opinions. To be of service and get my own ego out of the way.
A gift of perspective. This is how I live his legacy. No more small, no more holding back.
Thank you sweet friend. You continue to be a gift.
