The 100 Day Reality Challenge

I have grieved today...a bit of self absorbing time to just feel it. Previously in life, I just would hold it in and pretend that all was ok. I was a total master at it but it was killing me inside. I got so good at pretending that my life became a pretence....I ended up feeling nothing, no joy, sadness, peace or anything...i became like a zombie, just going through the motions.
Today I just let myself be sad. Tonight, I will add Kim to my list of people whose life I celebrate along with my own with my daily champagne. I have a glass of champagne every single day and I celebrate my day and my life and all those that touched my life along the way who are no longer with us or who I know need my thoughts.
It certainly put into perspective the challenges I face in life are pretty minor in comparison and certainly not in the same league as what my friends are facing right now.
I will set to work to raise money for their beautiful family, its one way to help.

I agree with Lisa...you need to grieve...but not wallow in it. I love that you take a moment every day to celebrate your life and those around you...

Thanks Andie,
This year I have lost 2 friends already. This will be my third. 2 with breast cancer, one murdered by her partner. I guess its my way of staying on an even keel.
Each day of our lives is worthy of a celebration and at the end of each day thats exactly what I do. I light a candle, pour a champagne into a very expensive glass and celebrate my life and all those in it.

Janine,

It's wonderful that you can allow yourself to grieve and also allow yourself to celebrate her life and the lives of others. I will keep you and your friend in my thoughts.

Love,
Lisa
