Do you find yourself having a conversation with your grief even before you get out of bed in the morning? That is a sure sign that you’re still prioritizing grief over life.You’re welcoming the new day with grief in mind. When grief is the first experience of your day, fear will also join in.

It’s important to find breathing space and pay attention to life as soon as you wake up. Grab your coffee and go where you can spend ten minutes alone and in peace.

Welcome to your breathing space!

This space you’re looking for-the place where you are alone-isn’t really a physical location; it is a space within your body and mind that allows you to remove the weight of loss that you carry around with you. It is where you can set loss aside and think about your future.

A future where you feel alive, strong, grateful, compassionate, and loving.

Where is this place for you?

If you recognize this place inside you, go there now. If not, find it. In your breathing space, you’ll be called back to life. The more you practice finding it, the more the space will be with you all through your day.

Just a breath away, if you need it.
