mourning....and changing my attitude...

I always thought mourning was something you did when someone passed away.
I now realize that mourning has to do with loss, no matter what the loss is.

I've gotten almost all the things going to storage packed up.
And I have spent hours of crying, sobbing.

I feel as if I am purging myself of all the pain
that I never took time in the past to acknowledge. 

This last year has brought so many changes and I thought I was just sailing through.
Even the good changes were changes just the same.
And I was just sailing through, not really taking the time to appreciate or mourn.

All my plans have fallen through for one reason or another.
I cannot do anything but have faith that God will put me right where I need to be.

Today I was especially feeling sorry for myself.
We have to move out this weekend and the unknown is looming a dark cloud above me.

I am telling you this because God always delivers, even if its into our email Inbox.

About a month ago I subscribed to Bernardo Mendez of Your Great Life TV,
A couple times a week I get an inspirational video message delivered to my Inbox.
Bernardo has made over 200 videos, all on his website, to inspire people to appreciate and love their lives.
What a wonderful calling!

Today he shared a video of Anthony Robbins interviewing Alice Herz-Sommer who is the oldest living Holocaust survivor at the age of 108!
"Everything Is A Present"

After watching this video and hearing the words of this remarkable woman I changed the way I was looking at my circumstances.
Here is the link to Bernardo's post:

And here is the interview on YouTube:

I hope this video inspires you as much as it did me.

My friend, it's good to mourn, it's good to release, it's good to cry, it's good to yell! Don't keep it in! Don't feel bad about feeling sorry for yourself. We all go through things. You will do it! Big Hugs ;o)

Peace and blessings to you each day!

:-(( How wise - yes, we mourn every loss, and sometimes it even takes a while to manifest itself. I hope that you find your way out into the sunlight sooner rather than later. But you will. Big big hug!
