I have been nagging my friends that I wanted to try reading Dawn Lanuza. Finally someone gifted me a copy of You Are Here and I immediately dove in. I wasn’t prepared to what I was going to read. To be honest, I didn’t have any expectations while reading. But man, this book has awoken different sides (and beasts) in me. This is totally relatable at all levels, regardless of the stage in life you are in. There is definitely something for you in here. The mix of poetry about pain and loss, moving on from past mistakes and love, growing pains, to realizing self-worth and eventually gaining that self-love is totally my cup of tea. I read most of the poems at least twice and as I went further into the book’s pages, I just cannot help but shed some tears and tell myself, “Sh*t, I can feel all the pain translated into these words.” I have probably read the best description of depression and anxiety in one (or two) of Lanuza’s poems in this book. It is downright honest and raw, and inspired me to write more poetry myself. And probably strive to get self-published too. Five out of five, of course! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Salamat, @dawnlanuza for this. Will definitely read more of your works.

A volte una persona ci lascia e il dolore che proviamo per quella perdita sembra non andarsene più, quella assenza è come un buco che ci segna per sempre. Ma con il passare del tempo, impariamo a conoscerlo: e ci torniamo per ritrovarci, per rassicurarci, per rinnovarci. "Un buco" di @yaelfran Una storia sulla perdita e sulla sua rielaborazione. 🇬🇧 Sometimes a person leaves us and the pain we feel seems to never go away, the absence is like a hole. But as time goes by we learn to know it, and we come back to it to find ourselves, to reassure ourselves, and to reinvent ourselves.

Things no one may have told you about healing from trauma... 🧐 🤷🏻‍♀️ There’s an abundance of loss: we can lose ourselves, our sanity, our innocence, people we love, people we hate, our comfort, our joy... & so much more. Part of healing from trauma is grieving all of the people, places, & things we lost. Grief in trauma is often missed, but it’s integral to the work. 💯 🙌🏻 #elevate #notyourblankslatetherapist #mentalhealth #trauma #traumaeducation #psychoeducation #noonetoldme #ptsd #ptsi #cptsd #loss #grief #grieving

What significance does February 15th hold for our family? It’s the day we celebrate our Annabelle and Ethan. 5 yrs ago I delivered Annabelle on February 15th, and 3 years later we found out we were pregnant with our fourth baby. Ethan’s due date was the first week of February. When we heard this news we were overjoyed seeing how his day was going to be so close to Annabelle’s, none of which was planned, it just so happened to be that way. I had my D&E procedure with Ethan on Aug 22nd but I really wanted to keep his due date as a remembrance of his life so close to his sister’s. Within our heartbreak we choose to make it as beautiful as we can. We love to light a candle, have a special treat and be outside. This year on February 15th it didn’t work with all of us being together so we made it work today. As life keeps moving we know they will forever be in our hearts but making this time as a family is so important to us. It’s a hard day to filter through trying to put our thoughts into words but we do our best by holding on to each other. We stand today thankful beyond words that this event in our lives has made us stronger. So to our babies. Happy Birthday, you will forever be in our hearts until we see you again one day. We love you🎈🎈 . . . Ps. About 5 min before we released our balloon my sweet friend @cassandra.mancha happened to send me the quote at the end on this post and WOW was that perfect timing. I just want to say thank you my sweet friend💫 . . . #pregnancyloss #stillborn #latetermmiscarriage #loss #grief #pain #beauty #wholeness #family #togetherwehaveeverything #strength #growth #love #healing #holdon #foreverinourhearts #imprints #angelsarewatchingoverus 😇😇

Why my baby? It is probably the most gut wrenching question we have cross our minds, but the truth is we’ve all thought it. . . But before I get into what I think I wanna preface and say that everyone who has experienced any sort of loss hopes for more time, no matter who it is, or old old they are, loosing a loved one is never easy. But the reality is that death is inevitable. . . It took me some time when thinking about this question to come up with an answer. And the simplest one I could come up with is, that it was simply her time to go. Do I wish I could have had more time with my daughter? Of course. And it is devastating that her time with us was so short? Definitely. But at the end of the day it was just her time. Just as my time will come some day. Just as those who times have already come before me. I believe that when I see my daughter someday in Heaven only a second will have passed for her and I look forward to being able to look into her eyes for the first time and finally see if she has brown eyes like her dad and brother or green eyes like her mama. . . So as we each wait for our time to come I pray that you embrace opportunity because nothing is guaranteed. We deserve to live our lives to our fullest potential in honor of those who were not blessed with as much time as we are. . . . #postpartumjourney #pregnancy #postpartumsupport #postbaby #stillborn #stillbirthawareness #stillbirtsupport #stillbirthsurvivor #stillbirthbreakthesilence #miscarriage #stillbirthisstillbirth #greif #loss

On the 14th of February 2009, we lost our first baby. Precious and incredibly delicate. It was the greatest loss we’ve ever felt. It shattered our entire belief system. And honestly, I really believed that I was destined for a life of heartbreak and bitterness. Exactly ten years to the day, we launched our podcast and watched it race to the top of the charts. Surrounded by four kids in the house (who aren’t old enough for explicit content yet). Through good times and bad, we’ve been so fortunate that our family and friends have always rallied around us. Built a wall around us when needed and celebrated our little victories like they were their own. Even my own small online community. A decade of nothing but love and positivity. In the picture, you can see my manager. My number one fan (and critic). She’s listening to episode one of the podcast for probably the 20th time and spamming everyone’s timeline with it. Isn’t it strange that despite all the shit that happens, one can still wonder how lucky one can get?

Treating grief and loss 🌸 In the 1990’s I trained with one of Australia’s most eminent grief counselling therapists. I understood the mechanics of loss within the person fairly well. It wasn’t until the mid 2000’s that I understood how the mind truly loads the feelings and mental patterns into the body and the devastating impact on long term wellbeing and health. If you are or have been dealing with loss, please contact me for a consultation and resonance energy treatment session. We can shift this stuff 👍🙂 #resonance #wellness #womenshealth #grief #loss #divorce #relationship #death #petbereavement #lossofalovedone #breakups #griefcounselling #energyhealing #sutherlandshirebusiness

Judgement, criticism, and dismissive comments are the norm in deep grief, not the exception. Sure, most people have "good intentions," but the difference between their intentions and the actual impact of their words is vast. • • The thing is, people think the whole point of grief is to get out of it as quickly as possible. You're supposed to become wiser, more compassionate, and truly understand what's important. • • Our cultural ideas are so deeply embedded that it can be hard to describe how it feels to be on the receiving end of what passes for grief support. • • There is so much work to do to change this grief-averse culture. We need a whole bunch of tools to help grieving people feel supported, and let friends & family know how to give their support. To help make all that happen, we’ve launched a Grief Revolution Patreon page.

Grief is sad and very painful... and when people are sad and in pain, sometimes they shed tears. It's okay to cry. Don't let anyone ever try to make you feel bad for shedding tears. 💚

I'm Going through defining who i really am ... i wanna strip off all the masks and be in total authenticity--the real beauty, imperfections, weaknesses, strenght, and vulnerability... It's something we all share. When we are in total authenticity and truly aligned--mind,body,heart&soul-- that's when we are at our most beautiful, powerful and unstoppable. As we live more in authenticity, our perspectives change as well. We see otherwise painful experiences such as heartbreaks and loss for the beauty and gift they entail... When we are in authenticity, such painful experiences only help strip off the layers of masks we have put on and help us uncover who we truly are at our core. Losses and heartbreaks are just unfolding of what and who are truly meant to be in our lives and what and who we will choose to become through it. Painful experiences are but the pressure and heat that magically transform carbon into what it can be--a beautiful diamond💎 To become what you've never been, you have to go through something you've never been through. When i feel emotional pain, i ask myself "is this life reflecting back to me the pain i must have also inflicted on others whether inadvertently or not? What do i choose to do after? Who do i choose to be? Do i choose to react angrily? Or do i choose to respond and understand the other person and see things from a place of unconditional love, total responsibility and no entitlement?

Fair winds, sweet girl. My moms rescue miracle, Roxy, passed suddenly a little bit ago. With my parents, she lived a life well loved and cared for. She was the sweetest girl who also happened to be the buzz around Buckhead, Georgia. She was a star. A showstopper. I’m so sorry you lost your girl, Momma. I wish I could make the pain go away. So much loss lately, so much change. #bulldog #love #loss #life #goodbye #rip

In the Lakota/Sioux tradition, a person who is grieving is considered most waken, most holy. There's a sense that if someone is struck by the sudden lightening of loss, he or she stands on the threshold of the #spirit world. The prayers of those who grieve are considered especially strong, and it is proper to ask them for their help. You might recall what it is like to be with someone who has grieved deeply. The person has no layer of protection, nothing left to defend. The #mystery is looking out through that person's eyes. For the time being, he or she has accepted the reality of loss and has stopped clinging to the past or grasping at the future. In the groundless openness of sorrow, ther is a wholeness of presence and deep natural wisdom. - Tara Brach . . . . . . #grieving #awake #spiritworld #prayer #reality #loss #past #future #wholeness #wisdom #sorrow #holy #tradition #truth #community #medicine #dying #family #communication #support #suffering #doula #protect #palliativecare #hospital #hospice

I hear a lot about break ups and the ending of romantic relationships but I rarely hear about the heartache when a friendship ends. They don’t write about how it feels to walk away from someone we never expected to lose. When a close friendship is over, its someone like a brother or sister, someone who knows your secrets, everything about you, and they’re out there still living and you go on living too without a big piece of yourself. Friendship is so important and as I gain experience I reflect on how to love my friends equally as important as my lovers, because truthfully all relationships take work, and I really love my close friends. It would tear me apart to think about what my life would be like without y’all in this.

What we focus on expands. We are not the limitations we place on ourselves. It can be hard to accept, these words and truth, when we live with something challenging. If someone says to us that changing our mindset will help, instead of leaning into that, we tend to pull away, feeling defensive and closed. I understand this completely and yet I know it's true, and that by changing how we think, what we focus on and how we feel, we can find joy through pain. Let's take an example of living with chronic illness or pain. If we have pain right now, if we focus on it, what happens - most likely it increases. If we then start thinking 'oh this is so hard, I can't do this' - most likely, we start believing that we can't. And the pain keeps increasing. And the more we tell ourselves this, the more we talk about it, the more those thoughts turn into a belief pattern that becomes entrenched, and the more difficult things become. This is truly what can happen to so many who live with chronic conditions. It's a complex cycle. There is a lot of suffering, and I don't use that word lightly, as I understand and get it, truly. From working with clients and from my own lived experience. But I also know that when we focus all our thoughts and attention on the 'suffering' we can become more stressed, anxious, we expand that way of feeling and embodying illness even more in bodies. We are truly holistic beings. It's not an easy process to shift any of this. Yet when we can change our self limiting beliefs, the way we see and view ourselves, life can become lighter, easier and we can feel back in control. Living with a challenging health issue, chronic pain or chronic illness of any kind, is very hard. Day by day it can be, with a lot of uncertainty and fear. Yet, with holistic support, the suffering can dissipate and we are left with more acceptance, ways to manage life, and to focus on what we can do, with intention and joy. We find meaning and purpose in new ways. I've helped myself through all that I know. And when I work with my clients around this, I see and they feel profound changes. It's beautiful, truly. Hope is alive and healing starts within. With support and love X

Its rare for me to post about really personal things on my gram. However I feel deeply compelled to share a life lesson that I took for granted till just 2 weeks ago. Allah with infinite mercy called my Grandmother back to a resting place that we will all see one day. But before leaving us at the age of 91 she gave her last goodbye to all her daughters and grandchildren living in the US. All while being on her hospital bed after the family decided to "pulled the plug". We all thought she would die shortly after. But she refused to leave before expressing every last ounce of affection left in her. She prayed with us. She asked for the family members that were unable to be present. She gave everyone of us la bendiciones (the blessings). Even to her last breath she was concerned about her family. She loved unconditionally. A task that for many of us is virtually impossible at times. A task that takes grand levels of discipline in regards to control over the ego. Don't get it twisted, She wasn't one to take nonsense from others. Yet even when she put people in their place she did so with ardor. Almost as if to aid individuals into living up to their highest potential of good character. She mastered this balance of nurture and justice in a way that inspires me and will stay with me for the rest of my life. This is the lesson of a life time that causes me to take deep breaths with just the thought of it. I am beyond grateful for the moments shared with her. And I will always regret not giving her more attention and love while she was still with us. Even in my long absences, she always asked for me. Then when I finally popped up after years passed, she treated me like I never left. Ya Allah to you we belong and to you we shall return. I Know. But ya Rabb how her departure has pained me. May Allah grant you the highest level of Jannah Abuela. Ameen. And may you All have a chance to express your love to the ones you care about most.

The Choice. Another boy meets girl, girl and boy fall in love, timing is off and choices have to be made. What I don’t like about movies like this is the fact that there always has to be another persons a third party who gets hurt by these whirlwind romances. It’s like telling the world that even when your with someone if the “right” person comes along it’s ok to break things apart, turn peoples worlds upside down all to make two people happy. That’s not ok. These two have this spectacular romance and they create this life, this full life and then boom. This movie is one for the books. Every path you take leads to a choice. The movie is good but good grief that ending!!! 😭😭 #thechoice #benjaminwalker #teresapalmer #alexandradaddario #maggiegrace #tomwilkinson #tomwelling #nicholassparks #drama #romance #love #thechoice #choices #goodmovies #sad #crying #moving #love #loss #path #beautiful

Trauma creates changes that you didn’t choose. Healing is about creating change that you do choose. You can’t put a timeline to your healing . But you can put a timeline on when you will begin to do the work it takes to heal. Your process is your process. Don’t let anyone tell you “you should get/be over it.” You are stronger than you realize. I know it’s hard sometimes. I know it’s hard to create and sustain relationships let alone have a healthy one with yourself. But you are a survivor and you can do the work it takes to heal and be the best version of you! I hope you find the courage to heal and keep healing! You are worth it! 💛👽🧜🏼‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #goodnight #depression #goodvibes #lifecoach #womenempowerment #selflove #relationships #inspiration #wellnesscoach #bisexual #lgbt #loss #healing #guidance #mentalhealthawareness #therapy #feelings #relationships #positivevibes #help #support #foodforthought
