Beyond Proof Radio with Angie Corbett-Kuiper: Redefining Death and Loss: Encore: From Grief to Grateful. Choosing to follow the breadcrumbs
03/04/2020 12:00 pm PDT
I invite you to join me as I discuss the personal steps I took to move from the debilitating and paralyzing pain of loss to one which includes joy and hope. It has not been easy. There are days I still find myself curled up in the fetal position unable to move missing the physical presence of my loved ones. These days, however, are far and few between now.
Creating a new way in which I include both Nicholas and Jan in my life has been so much more rewarding than keeping them buried in pain, grief, sorrow, and heartache when it is unnecessary, but like everything in this life...is a choice. I will share with you my journey hoping to offer guidance on what I have done to create more days of laughter than tears.
Death forces us to sit still. Death forces us to feel. Death forces us to be uncomfortable. Up until now, we have been able to avoid "feeling" with a magic pill, liquid, or potion. Those who wish for a magic pill or magic answer will be disappointed because there is none.
I hope you join me as I share how following every breadcrumb, no matter how unorthodox has allowed me to not only connect with my loved ones but rely on their guidance and their loving support as I live life — offering signs that have become a comfort and joy.
I will share my story. I will share my pain. I will share my joy. I will sing a song for you. I will cry with you. I will laugh with you. I will walk this journey with you, but I can not do it for you.
Know that you are not alone. We are never alone. Please join me.
