Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sun on unripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die x

When we suffer a loss, a break-up, a painful change in our lives, we need to remember to take all the time we need to heal emotionally. Moving forwards and getting back on track with our lives doesn't take a day. It takes a lot of small steps to allow us to break free from our broken self and move on.
We all face stormy times in our lives. Storms that can seem impossible to bear, however once the storm is over, we wonder to ourselves how we got through them and managed to survive.
One thing is for certain, those storms we go through will change our lives and occasionally, we will not be the same people who walked into them.
We place too much importance on being right all the time
and/or failing to recognize that being right all the time isn't necessarily always the RIGHT thing to be!
Sometimes we need to listen with our heart and ask
ourselves which will do more harm?
Being right and proving it to others or allowing another person the
chance to show they too have a valid point and giving them
an opportunity to shine?
