Today was National Grief Awareness Day and I posted earlier as to what that may entail.

For me?

I work through grief in exhausting ways, pushing to extremes. Volunteering to extremes. Doing anything to extremes.

Yet this is not necessarily a bad thing.

Through productivity and activity, I find peace and solace.

As I befriend dough, stir sauce or shape treats, I work through many issues – feelings and emotions.

Not a bad release, right?

This morning I thought, “I should meditate.”

And I should – and will, however, I can’t see paying for a class to meditate with others vs. meditating on my own.

$25 per class vs. my making a commitment to carve out time to meditate within the comfort of my home. Which would you choose?

How do you manage your grief?

However you do, that works for you. Don’t ever let someone convince you otherwise.
