Hello friends, Yvonne Heath here with Love Your Life to Death.
The holidays are right around the corner. Last week I shared how we need to show up for ourselves first, especially at the holidays when emotions are heightened and we feel our losses more deeply.
We need to show up for ourselves first, acknowledge and allow our feelings and be okay with not being okay and allowing grief and joy (which can coexist). Today my message is: When someone is grieving, struggling, in a crisis, and you don't know what to do, and you don't know what to say, just show up. Just Show Up.
You cannot fix grief you can acknowledge and allow hard feelings.
The truth is that we can still allow the joy of the holidays and celebrate and support those who are not feeling joyful. We can allow all of it. There is room for all of it. So please, check in with those who perhaps do not want to celebrate right now.
Let them know you care, that you are thinking about them, (drop things off, shovel their walkway, walk their dogs) because life continues on even when grief takes a hold of us, especially at the holidays. Bring them cookies. Do what your heart leads you to do, knowing that we cannot fix it.
We can love and support one another along the way.
Show up for yourself first no matter what. And always remember to just show up for one another now and always.
I will always be here and to Just Show Up for you.
I love you all.
