The journey through grief toward hope does not have a set timeline. It’s a continuum that we each experience on our own timetable. Only you will know when it’s time to emerge from your grief.
I lost both my parents and my step-mother within four months of each other. Then I lost 3 additional family members including my cousin, my uncle, and my step-father a short time later. I feel your pain, and you are not alone in this journey of grief.
The exercises and practices suggested in this journal are what supported me and helped me come out of my darkness and emerge as a butterfly. Writing to and about my loved ones was instrumental in helping me move toward hope, and so was self-care.
Although it may seem unattainable at first, we can transform our grief into growth one day at a time by focusing on ourselves. I call it transformetion.
I’ve created this 12-week journal in the hopes it becomes your steadfast companion on this journey and be alongside you as you experience the highs and lows of sorrow, pain, love, and joy. It includes a variety of activities, prompts, quotes, and guided explorations, as well as plenty of space to write and create.
This journal is for those of us who loved and have lost. The ones who now have a void to fill. The ones who are ready to embark on their transformetion.
Please allow this journal to be your confidant, your friend, the witness to your emotions, and the observer of your truth as you move along this path toward hope.
There is hope in grief.
