This blog is about sharing beautiful pictures of tranquil places, inspirational quotes, books to promote healing and finding inner peace. Links to websites that have helped me and I hope will help you too, to get through the next ten minutes and then the next, which sometimes is as much as we can cope with. If your world is spinning too fast and you are struggling to find the energy to keep up, this blog is for you.
This blog is not about bereavement, gardening and mental health issues as such but it is about learning how to try to heal and live with those issues. It is about finding peaceful spaces in your world, places to breath in and out, giving yourself headspace to try to heal.
I have been reading Pema Chodron books and she talks about how a lot of our suffering is brought about because we are in conflict with how things are. We want to be calm, peaceful, comfortable, not in pain and when the world has other ideas we fight and reel against it. This is what causes us pain and keeps us suffering.
This is about finding ways to heal, which aren’t destructive to us but support us where we are right now and learning to be ok with that.
I’m a female 40 something, lost, and trying to find a way back from Planet Grief with my two feathered companions. Missing my DH more than words can say.
