Sadness is a part of life. I haven't found a way to
eradicate it from my life.
I have found that I can feel it, I can allow it to simply
"be" in me. It is OK. It is a feeling, not a fact. I have
learned to give myself the gift of feeling those feelings
because I know that I will come out the other side.
For so many years, I wallowed in my feelings. Or I tried
to ignore them. I tried to eat them away. I have learned
to love being able to name and feel them.
I felt them the other night. I allowed them to be. I went
to bed and came to the morning refreshed and ready to
start another day. Those feeling did indeed pass.
I think sometimes that people believe if you are working

there should be no sadness, no grief, no fear, no unhappiness
in your life. Not so....there is all of that. My program is how
I learn to work through those things. And work through them
