In Summary…It’s OK to be an Empath

Written May 9, 2013

Delving into grief is a brave thing to do. Sometimes it engulfs us and we have no choice but to sit in the middle of it for however long it takes. Brave. Sometimes as it’s starting to be a little less intense, we delve in anyway to really grab all of its lessons, feel them to the core, and share them with others. Brave. And sometimes, we visit grief with others – sitting with them in their sadness, saying just the right thing, or the wrong thing, or nothing at all, but just being there understanding and loving and letting it take its own sweet time. Brave, brave, brave.

This week my blog on grief was inspired by my dog, Rudy, who gave us upteen years of unconditional love and left a big gaping hole when she died. That hole is filling up now with sharings and love from friends and family as well as:

gorgeous photography from Gregory Colbert depicting our intense connectivity to animals,

insight from Jonathon Fields into why I/we feel so deeply,

Wisdom from six year olds and wisdom from dogs and last, wisdom from Jane.

It also helps a whole lot to have images of Rudy and her sister, Roxy, staring back at me via Redbubble and Fine Art America.

Thanks for delving into grief with me this week. Have a beautiful weekend.
