I lost my grandma the other day. It’s kinda surreal that all my grandparents are gone now. But I know they’re in a better place cause they don’t have to suffer anymore. 🙏🏻❤️
Sometimes it’s hard to articulate my feelings. I’ve been so used to logically compartmentalising my feelings that I don’t know how to feel them or allow myself to feel them in the moment. It’s why music and writing has always been my saving grace.
So when Kodaline released their new song Shed a tear, it encapsulated how I’m exactly feeling about the loss of my grandma – strong courageous, brave and strong headed woman in our family (guess it does run in the family ;). Everything they describe, is everything I’m feeling on the inside even though on the outside I’m not showing it.
Through the midst of the family funeral chaos, logistics, arrangements and Sydney Oxygen conference at the end of the month, I’m lucky and blessed to have so many friends and family by my side. Especially my life partner =) I’m not alone as we march on to what my grandparents wanted for me.
Praying for clarity and inner peace for next two weeks, to be a living sacrificial leader in life not a burnt out one. ❤️ Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
