Loss

Day 290/366 days Towards Self-Mastery.


Loss. If you've ever experienced a sudden and significant loss in your life you have more experience with this subject than I do, and your comments by way of contribution are welcome.


My losses have been slow and torturous. Seeping out from under my guard, distancing themselves slowly and painfully, tightening my chest and stifling my breathing.



Loss. It feels as though I have become an expert at living without, at living with having lost. My headache is returning.


The only way I can counter the tremendously crumpling feeling of loss is to look out into each new day and experience what I have. The beauty that surrounds me, the life that is active in my presence, the warmth of the sun on my skin, the cool breeze in my hair. The sounds of neighbours working on their projects, lives travelling the nearby roads, birds singing.
