Today is National Day Of Reflection and I just want to send you all lots of love.
I’ve reflected on Dad today and I’ve chatted to him, telling him I miss him. I’m trying to set up my small business in memory of him and dedicated one of my posts about him. I’ve not opened up on my Instagram business page about why I’m doing this business because I can’t find the right words nor the right time but today, something just felt right to give a little snippet about Dad for all of my followers to see and to have an understanding of why it is what I’m doing. It felt good, today’s kind of felt “good” in a calming, relaxing type of way.
It’s still only just over 9mths since losing Dad but I honestly believe he’s with me, guiding me, giving me the strength to carry on.
So, to all of us here struggling, just take 10minutes to sit with yourself (or others) and to reflect on your loved one who’s no longer here. Remember them, their little habits, their little annoyances (because we’ve all got them hehe), their favourite joke, story to tell, their favourite food…whatever it is, let it bring you some comfort. Hold that thought and let it flow freely. Go and make a cuppa in their favourite mug. Go and buy their fave choc and sit eating it, watching one of their fave films. Sit in their dressing gown, wear their socks or slippers. Go and find something today which will bring you warmth as you reflect and celebrate your time you had with them.
We can and we will get through the difficult times
