“Always trying to be a better Me”
So I looked up the definition of loss and randomly these first two definitions came up:
Both of these definitions are somewhat true! Loss once it happens and you lose, perhaps someone dear, becomes a fact that you cannot change and a fact that is associated, of course, with grief!
I personally faced loss few years back and it hit me unexpectedly and just when I thought I had it all, I lost a dear person to me…my Husband. Unfortunately, Life sometimes throws at you an unpleasant event and there you are unprepared, feeling scared, and vulnerable thinking that your life has just ended.
Well, maybe it did… temporarily! Life in this moment has changed and this is not the life that you planned but here you are!
Actually, it took me years to overcome my loss, working hard and with lots of ups of down. I pushed myself to go back to work again as a lawyer and changed jobs seeking for better opportunities. I did well in my job but at the same time I lost part of myself. I totally neglected my health physically and mentally although from the outside I looked completely fine.
Right there I discovered my passion for health and fitness which brought joy to my life.
Gradually, I came to peace with my loss, I am now able to talk about it and adjusted to it. It honestly does take effort, faith and determination to get there.
Yes, you will never be the same, you will be an updated version of yourself, a stronger
human being with endless opportunities. It is not okay to surrender to those feelings or
not to try at least to come back to yourself.
It is okay if you feel sad, tired, on the edge or helpless because at the end of the day you are a human being full of emotions so don’t be hard on yourself.
Last thing I would leave you with this note:
Sending you all, love and peace xx
