The following is taken from the draft introduction to my upcoming memoir ‘Cowboys Are Not Supposed To Cry’ to be published in Spring of 2021.
Reconciling the Past
Embracing the Present
Redeeming the Future
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
“When we suffer loss, when it finds us in one form or another we must first reconcile our past. Second, we must embrace the present, our circumstances and play the cards life has dealt us. Thirdly, we must redeem our future, a vision with new dreams for a new life where there is no finish line. Forever changed we must move forward, a different person with a different trajectory we carry the past with us every step of the way.” ©Mark W. Schutter
Grief and loss changes us, how could it not?
What are your thoughts? How do you move forward following loss and what helps you?
