Finding Motivation While Grieving
How do you find motivation when you're grieving? When does everything click that you need to move forward?
When we are grieving the loss of a loved one our initial thought is, I just can't do this. It's hard to move forward due to feeling guilty, feeling our life has ended. But this is not true! We are able to move forward when the time is right. You need to mourn your loss and figure out what to do. What is the first emotion you feel - numbness. This is normal, your world has just turned upside down.
During this time, the focus is now what; I don't know what I'm supposed to do or not supposed to do. There are no rules as everyone is different. However, you do have to move forward. You find motivation in little ways. I know for myself I never got dressed, I would get up, get my kids off to school and sit in my PJ's all day. Then one day, I got up, got the kids to school and got dressed. From that point on, my motivation grew. I allowed myself to mourn, I allowed myself to cry, and feel my loss. Once I went through this process, my motivation grew, and I was able to do more and more.
Finding your motivation while grieving comes; one step at a time, allowing yourself to process your loss and taking one step, one day, at a time. You'll find your way. Many blessings ~~ Cammie
