New Year's--Wants v Needs

Day 16: Wants versus Needs in Resolutions

I haven’t written resolutions for years. I think it’s because it felt too hard, too sad. Amidst a pandemic. Amidst deep grief. Amidst survival mode. Amidst feeling like everyday was in and of itself a simple promise to myself to try my best, no matter what that looked like.

This year, it felt good to ask myself what is it that I want and what is it that I actually need. In grief, future thinking can be hard. But knowing what you actually need doesn’t have to be future oriented.

So what if resolutions could be for the now? For this version of you? Wherever you are in your life and in your grief?

Welcome to my second, 100-day project. I hope to provide a daily offering on something grief-related. I am a grief therapist and educator working with people in Oregon, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Maine. This feed is in honor of each person who has trusted me with their stories and wisdom during their grief journey. I hope that others may benefit from simple and straightforward talk about a topic that can be difficult.
