Loss never gives us that bouncy, jump out of bed feeling. It’s not meant to.
Grief and loss are heavy stuff.
But overcoming, transforming, and rising stronger than ever—there’s some nice words we can get excited about!
Ugh—can’t we just have rebirth without all the grief and struggle?
Na, it doesn’t work that way.
It turns out loss and transformation are a happily married couple.
We can’t be the Phoenix unless we cough up a little ash.
“Luckily,” life gives us multiple losses (big and small) over a lifetime.
So we can fall and rise, and renovate ourselves again and again. Sometimes grief crushes our spirit beyond repair—but it doesn’t have to.
