Growing Up

Day 45: Maya Angelou’s Wisdom

I hold Maya Angelou’s wisdom close in my work and in my life. I have noticed that deep grief offers a fertile ground for growing up (not that anyone wants to hear that nor cares at the beginning of their grief journey).

On the path of grief, many moments arise when one must decide whether to acknowledge and experience the pain of grief, or to turn away from it, burying it deeper inside. I do not believe there is one right way to grieve, ever. AND I have noticed some patterns.

Humans who brave the turning towards their grief, acknowledging it and claiming it (and not even at every moment because grievers are still needing to work and parent and be partners and somewhat functional in the world) tend to be grievers who grow with their grief, grow in their relationships, grow towards themselves, and grow up in ways they never thought possible.

Welcome to my #100dayproject. I am providing a daily offering on #grief, in honor of each person who has trusted me with their story and wisdom during their #griefjourney. I hope that others may benefit from simple and straightforward talk about a topic that can be difficult. Thanks for following and/or sharing.
