Exit the Looking Glass

What the past year has taught me, most of all, is that I am stronger than grief. Not that I am stronger alone – no one is. I am strong because I sought out, found, and accepted support; I crumpled, but I persevered.

I am still grieving – grief does not have an expiry date. But I am not completely overwhelmed.

Being my mother’s primary family caregiver was a choice I will never regret, and while I miss her deeply, I am ready to emerge from that part of my life and enter whatever new adventure (adventures) I choose. I’m exiting the looking glass behind which was this agony filled universe of grief and coming out a woman with purpose.
