#BreakThings: The Grieving Process
With November fast approaching, I am mourning the loss of 2020. The friends and family that I haven’t seen. The weddings I missed. The vacations, plans, and dreams unrealized. The professional goals that fell by the wayside.
Grief is such an important part of the healing process. And I feel like the most important thing I can do is let go of the resentment and anger and regret so that I can start 2021 fresh, even though the pandemic won’t be over.
