Grief And Joy

September 30, 2020

One of the most perplexing things you’ll ever learn on your way to healing is that grief and joy can coexist with one another.

There are times when you’re thrilled to be alive and experiencing what life has to offer, yet a deep sadness lingers in the back of your mind. There are times when you’re devastated and gutted beyond belief, yet there’s still a glimmer of hope that something better is coming.

It’s that simple and complicated.

Yin and yang.
Darkness and light.
Good and bad.
Beauty and destruction.

They’re all within us.
Altogether, all at once.

If this is how you’ve been feeling, let it be a reminder that you shouldn’t feel guilty for laughing too hard or crying too much. And you certainly shouldn’t feel crazy or contradictory for doing both at the same time.

Do as you feel, and see where it takes you.

Making the transition from a status quo life to one that’s genuinely remarkable often requires us to go through stages that aren’t always pleasant—pockets of time that are wildly confusing and disorienting.

You don’t have to make logical, rational sense of it.
You just have to feel it all fully.
Altogether, all at once.
