Grieving sucks. It is challenging, heartbreaking work.

But what if grief were also an opportunity to embrace self-acceptance, experience creative inspiration, and make space for laughter?

What might life look like if an awareness of death empowered us to reevaluate our relationship to our belongings and ourselves?

After grief asks us to bear witness to our pain, it can be an invitation to rediscover the past, celebrate the present, and prepare for a more meaningful future.

Grief doesn’t follow a schedule - but I do!
