Happy New Year!
I thought I would have said that sooner, but you would not believe what I experienced the first week of the New Year.
First, for the last 5 years on January 4, I take a moment of silence for my grandfather who I lost in 2015 due to pancreatic cancer.
This year I woke up on the 4th determined to have a great day and not mourn my grandfather but reflect on the good times.
I was having an amazing day until I got the phone call I will never forget.
Around 7pm that night.
I was awoken out my sleep and told that one of my favorite people had passed away.
It was so unreal because I was just on the phone with him less than 48 hours from the day he passed away.
Not only that, but he died the same day that his father, my grandfather, passed away.
Yea it was a lot to deal with.
This was the greatest lost that I had dealt with in my life!
When I talked to him on Saturday the 2nd day of January of this year, he was laughing, and he sounded healthy.
We had one of the best conversations ever.
It is so crazy because I was not going to answer the phone because I had just talked to him a couple days before, but he had called me twice in a row, and when someone calls me twice in a row, I believe its an emergency.
He did not want nothing he just wanted talk lol. That was my uncle!
I am going to miss my uncle!
Anyways, as I was going through this mourning period.
I recognized my community, virtual and reality, was grieving and mourning as well. A lot of people I know are dealing with their own loss.
Today I will share with you some tips that I am using that is helping me get over the pain. Hopefully, these tips can help you too!
