Wherever you go you will find people lying to you, and as your awareness grows, you will notice that you also lie to yourself. Do not expect people to tell you the truth because they also lie to themselves. You have to trust yourself and choose to believe or not to believe what someone says to you.” ― Don Miguel Ruiz
#Truthmoment I hid in the shadows of my dreams for a long time. The last 10 years of my life has been complicated to say the least. That’s no excuse. Life will always give you an opportunity to stop.

It’s been nine holidays seasons without my mother and I still think of her and the things that we would have done together. I think of her smile, her laughter, her world renowned macaroni pie and stuffing (lol) and all of her favorite things. I wish that I could roll my eyes one more time because she said, “don’t buy me anything for Christmas, just give me money.” Lol. My mom was truly ‘The Ideal Idena’ — the Proverbs 31 woman. I miss her more than words can describe.
Nothing can make the emptiness that I feel without her subside. I’ve learned that coping and finding my way back to joy is a choice.
Here are three practical things that I’ve done over the years to help me to cope with my grief and loss during the holidays.
