When a breakup occurs and it is close to the holidays and we feel all alone, remember that life is peaks and valleys. Right now, try to make the valley as peaceful and centered as possible. Remember that the good times are coming.

This is the time of year when the loss of my 14 year old hits me the hardest. With one way conversations and his absence from everyday things, I tend to notice him missing even more during the holidays. It is the most likely time for stress.

This is the time to turn to gratitude and knowing that the focus has to change to what we are lucky for and not on what is missing.

Everyone have a safe and peace-centered holiday. I do understand and I send you all love.
