Monday Mindfulness: Respecting Grief

h/t Creativity and Madness Facebook
Grieving is the natural emotional expression following the loss of our loved ones. As we prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas it is important to find healthy ways to express the sadness about the empty chairs at our tables.

Dia de los Muertos is a remembrance celebration with origins in Mexico.  Family and friends gather to bake special foods and create ofrendas (memory table altars) to honor their deceased.

This week make an intention to honor your grief. Consider memory sharing, sorting through photos, prayers, charitable donations in their name, or a cemetery visit.

This week I will respect my grief.
