Have A Merry Christmas & Happy New Year Everyone
It has certainly been a very challenging 2 years for some, but God is good all the same.
It's been a year since you passed
It turned into a dark winter evening when I was told 12 months ago on 10th March 2020 at 7:30pm that my dad had passed away. The days following that felt darker and the pain of not seeing or speaking to him lingered in my heart. I was in shock as I had only spoken to him 2 days prior and he seemed weak but okay. No matter how old our parents are, we still feel the pain in their death. Not being able to call dad and see him, was like a passing wind I could feel but not touch. I attended bereavement counselling for 9 weeks and it helped me understand my feeling around his death and thereafter. As a Counsellor, this helped me recover quickly so I could support my own clients after taking a few weeks off work to grieve. Grieving takes time and we all grieve differently and over the past 12 months when I think of my dad, the pain becomes lesser because I have learnt to fill my mind with good memories. I know he is at peace and resting well in God's Heaven which gives me so much peace right now. I love you dad. Rest in Peace.

House of Thoughts
As I meditated, I thought to myself. It is a constant battle for us humans to identify negative and positive thoughts and differentiate which is actually ours or that nagging voice from the past or present. It can sometimes feel like the good and bad fighting to gain dominance with a persistent pressure on one's mind that sometimes seem too much to bear. Learning to identify your thoughts and filtering them in order to have a clear view may sometimes feel challenging. You are not alone if your feel that way. Writing down your thoughts as they occur may help you identify them, noticing any feelings you have as you write them down to reflect on.
