When unwanted grief knocks at your door and enters your life, you must discover your own personal voice and authority.
“For those men who, sooner or later, are lucky enough to break away from the pack, the most intoxicating moment comes when they cease being bodies in other men’s command and find that they control their own time, when they learn their own voice and authority.”
~ Theodore H. White
Four essential grief healing insights for living with purpose and finding your own authority to heal are vital to a wholesome life of happiness and joy.
1-Believe And Take Action
Henry Ford highlights a personal truth about challenges of life each face. You are governed to a great degree by what you believe about personal challenges. It is important you believe you can. Don’t let the naysayers cause you to believe otherwise. Take time to list four things you believe you can do to reconcile your grieving and find more happiness and peace. Begin doing them today.
“Those who believe they can do something and those who believe they can’t are both right.”
~ Henry Ford
Never accept: I can’t as a viable answer to your unique condition.
2-Find Your Own Courage
Courage doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have fears. It simply means you have the gumption to face your trials. It is important you believe in your inner self and find your own empowerment.
“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Too many have their opinions and form their own judgement about what a person is made of and what they can and cannot do. Given your situation – which they may not fully understand – they have formed and often voiced what you can and cannot do under fire. They don’t know what you can do once you set your mind and heart on a healing course of action. Believe you can!
3-Trust Your Inner Strength To Carry-out Your Dreams
“Trust your own inner guidance. Have faith that your steps are carrying you toward your dreams. Keep your eyes on the heavens and believe that your feet will carry you well.”
~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Your inner strength has not always been challenged until now. Trusting in your own empowerment requires you to dig deep – perhaps deeper than ever before.
“It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.”
~ Ram Dass
How you will proceed along your grief healing journey is up to you. Nonetheless, the steps you take can begin your healing. Take thirty minutes to evaluate the healing steps that are essential to use the inner strength you have effectively.
4-LIVE With Purpose
Grief and loss experiences take you full circle as you appraise your condition. Finding positive and beneficial opportunities and possibilities are essential to your healing.
“Don’t dwell on what went wrong.
Instead, focus on what to do next.
Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.”
~ Denis Waitley
Live your best life; it’s not your age, not your predicament, it is the energy you muster towards finding the answer needed to find your healing solutions that is most important.
Believe in yourself. Find your own courage. Trust in your inner strength. Live each day of your life with purpose. Begin today.
